This cricket was my pet Crickety. He was one in a bag of crickets that my friend Cheryl gave me on my birthday this past summer. I put him in the bug playground that my uncle Jim gave me for my birthday. He was a lot of fun, and he liked to watch TV with me. His favorite show was Dora because it was the only one he watched. He’s not alive anymore, but I just found his picture on the computer, and I had a lot of fun remembering him.
He was a house cricket. House crickets originated in Asia, Africa, and Europe, but someone introduced them to North America. Now they live in Canada and most of the United States.
