Squid at home
Local children still remember the cuttlefish I had years ago - but now they have to make do with a Robin which will come when called and perch on their hands to feed.
(My wife was greatly amused when a courier delivered a parcel the other day - as she went to sign his clip-board Tweet muscled in and the courier took a sharp step backwards! Tweet hung around (literally) until Sheila fed him, and the courier also hand fed Tweet a mealworm, before going away muttering that he could not believe what had happened!)
The bird also nearly got me in trouble - while I was feeding him I saw a cat stalking across the road. In my usually guise of the biggest, ugliest cat on the block I hissed violently at it, so it retreated, and I saw it off with another hiss. Almost immediately a neighbour appeared round the same corner, saying that she knew it was me that had frightened the cat into her garden - when she had only just managed to get rid of the wretched creature!!
