Tweety and Spikey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tweety / Spikey
Age: 4 weeks / 4.5 years old
Gender: Males
Kind: Cat / Green Iguana
Home: Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA
   Tweety is approximately four weeks old and Spikey is around 4 to 4 1/2 years old. They live in Whitmore Lake, Michigan in the United States.

    We found Tweety and his brother at my mother-in-law's house (she feeds strays). Their eyes were crusted over with junk and they were looking for food, or Mom, or both. The vet estimated their age at about ten days. Through lots of love and Kitten formula, he is growing daily and has enough energy for everyone in the house!

    Spikey was less than 24" when we bought him. He is now about 55" long. He has a roommate named Sizzle who is a mean El Salvadorian Iguana. Spikey never bites, never whips us with his tail and is litterbox trained. He mostly eats greens and vegetables. For a treat he gets a little cooked chicken breast. When I find them, one of his favorite treats is big beetle grubs! Yum.

    This photo is their first encounter with one another. Their other siblings are a Maine Coon cat and two dogs, one of which has taken Tweety in as her own.
