My daughter got him six months ago when he was about 3 years old. He spent the first year in a box under some kid’s bed because they had cats. The next two years was with her coworker’s parents. When they no longer wanted to keep him, my daughter bought him from them.
He was a big mess when I first saw him. My daughter took him to the vet and all, so he is much better now,
You know how the new generation lives. His online account has many followers. She is actually very protective of him, and only put normal pictures online. He seems to know a lot and has feelings too, which is weird. BTW, that is a cowboy hat, not a clown top, so I don’t think it is humilating.
I only wish he can bark like a dog to answer, when I go searching for him many times a day to make sure he is safe, He blends right into the surroundings. And no, my daughter wouldn’t even let me think about tying a tiny balloon on him. I was only joking. I am really glad that she got him instead of a snake. She got a new job close to my place and will be gone all day. She and her pet are staying with us so I can feed him veggies and water during the day. She tries to offer him other stuffs after work, but I think he feeds himself in the backyard.
