Juliette, the Pet of the Day
Name: Juliette
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Bull Frog
Home: Auburn, Indiana, USA
   I found this one-pound bull frog at my favorite fishing hole. What got my attention about her was that when I rubbed my finger against the side of her head she would close her eyes and lean into my finger. Just like a cat! I figured she wouldn't exactly be safe, a "wild" frog being so friendly to a human. So I spent two weeks trying to con my husband into letting me take her home. Finally he relented and I've had her for almost three years now. She will eat 50 crickets, 24 red wiggler worms, and 24 minnows a week!! Between her and her food, my four cats are well entertained. She lives in a huge tank in my office but I'm in the process of conning my husband into letting me build a pond in the yard for her.
