Boo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Boo
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Mosiac Chinchilla
Home: Elizabethtown, Kentucky, USA
   This is our beautiful Boo (short for Peek-A-Boo). Boo came to live with us with her "brother" just over two months ago. Within a week of her coming home, we found out that she had gotten parasites at the pet store, and she went downhill extremely fast. We went through three weeks of medication rounds, hand feeding and watering, and watching her hold onto life by the skin of her teeth. Our brave little Boo fought her way back to health, and now we have the worst time trying to keep reigns on the little sweetie!

    Boo and her brother just tear around the bedroom at nights during our free-run play times, it's so hard to look back and imagine her the way she was. At night, she likes to crawl up on my shoulder and stick her nose in my ear and chatter me into giving her a raisin. And I definitely never get sick of seeing her give her brother, Pika, chinnie kisses! She's definitely our little Miracle Baby!
