Why? Because… Lizards Are A Girl’s Best Friend click my link there to know one reason why.
I admit I have given stuffed animals to my lizards. I discovered they appreciate something soft. This is how I found out. My son, placed a teddy bear in Copper’s cage and she laid on it instantly! Sometimes, Teddy needed to go in the washer & even get sewn. When Teddy was returned to her, she immediately hugged it in her reptilian way! It was a cute sight & interesting observance, especially for those who assumed lizards as dumb, cold-blooded creatures. Copper is Murph’s predecessor in family membership, his sister, if you will. This is Copper:
Notice how orange and yellow she is. Her eyes appeared bluish, more often than not. However, sometimes they looked more a golden-copper colored. This girl had a loving heart, strong will and a spirit of determination! Despite her gimpy left arm, which made her more special, she was a Houdini!
That girl kept escaping her enclosure after repeated reinforcing. We’d come home to find her half vertical up the gap of the living room door, breathing the fresh air that seeped through the tiny crack. She got a lot of time outside, but apparently, not to her liking. I finally fixed the problem.
One thing that made her more content in her enclosure was “Teddy” It looked like Mr. Bean‘s Teddy & we said it the way Mr. Bean did so on his very funny shows… for fun.
So yeah, I love my lizards. They are family. I will protect them as I would any family member. So this Valentine’s Day, you who know Murph & me may wonder if I’m going to get Murph a card. You couldn’t put it past me. Perhaps some chocolate-covered crickets? No, I will save the money.
I want what matters most… mostly. Sure I wish for elegant furniture with wicked, neat decor, and a home with more space. But, it’s okay. I don’t have my dream Lamborghini & mint condition, American muscle car, such as the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 (in matte black), or equivalent bad-a** beauty (yet), but it’s okay.
I definitely don’t want cards (I’m too sentimental & I don’t like clutter). I don’t want diamonds, I prefer a pretty rock found on a path. What is needed is to have a good day & be near those whom I love, but that’s every day. It’s just another day.
“Oh… it’s kissy time. I love kissy time!”
