"Lemmikki" comes from the oldish word "lempi" meaning love. Lemmikki is also a flower, in English known as forget-me-not.

In the sentence before this i had something with a pet too and I typed lemmiki, without the second k, and git it right without a warning to check spelling. I realized it by this sentence when I again typed lemmiki and was corrected I'm missing the second k.

I'd hoped I'd left the snakes behind in Pets... Why are they in Family...?
