No, you have not reached the National Geographic Blog. This is still Sunshine Yellow. I just wanted you to meet my very good (and handsome) friend, T-rex.
I have so enjoyed getting to meet all your dear little friends; the fun duo Hugo and Felix, adorable and cuddly Fancy and then there is the computer literate Binnie. I've also noticed a few beautiful birds out there. Now I figured it was time to share my sweet pet with you.
We have had T-rex for 2 years now. He moved in here as a tiny babe about 4 spunky inches long. Now he is a grown easy-going man of 18 inches and has been the perfect pet. He doesn’t bark, or need to be taken outside for walks. He doesn’t shed around the house, doesn’t chew up shoes or scratch furniture. Or cost a lot in maintenance. When you want a friend, he is there. When you are tired of him, he is happy to sit quietly in his glass cage without complaints.
T-rex loves embroidery and is a stitcher watcher. He will sit with me for hours and keep an eye on that fascinating needle going in and out and in and out. Instead of a backdrop for his cage he has it decorated with his very own bug quilt.
Most people think lizards are unemotional. But to one who has gotten to know and understand this one, I realize that even though he may be incapable of loving me, he does like me very much. I notice him perk up when he sees me coming down the hall each morning. And if he wanders off a ways, he always comes back after a while to just sit by me. I can read that as friendship.
I can’t wait to read your comments, but please, no EWWWW’s! T-rex does have one flaw….tender feelings. :-)
