Oedipus and Maude, the Pet of the Day
Name: Oedipus, Maude
Age: 4 1/2, Unknown
Gender: Male, Female
Kind: Green Iguanas
Home: Charleston, South Carolina, USA
   Hi! My name is Maude (the smaller more gorgeous one) and I will be doing all the talking, because who wants to hear what my brother Oedi has to say? We look like we're pals here, but we have our tiffs like any normal brother and sister. Our parents adopted my brother Oedi when he was very young (only about 6 inches long) and have watched him grow ever since. He's now 5 1/2 feet long!! I'm ready for him to stop growing, but it doesn't matter, I can still bully him around because he is a big wuss. And how you say did our parents first have the honor of living with me? Well they rescued me from a vet that was not taking care of me about three years ago (notice I don't have all my toes). Ironic, I know, but I am so much happier now. I feel like I have a second chance at life, and I let my parents know that everyday when I make them do what I want to do. I almost always get what I want. :D They don't know my exact age, and I'm definitely not going to tell them, a woman's gotta keep that kind of stuff secret, you know. Well that's enough for now, we've got to get back to destroying stuff in mom and dad's house, our favorite pastime.
