Rocket, Burly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rocket, Burly
Age: Four, One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Iguana, Cockatiel
Home: Eden, New York, USA
   Hi I'm Rocket - I'm a four-year-old green iguana and this is my friend Burly, a one-year-old Cockatiel. We have a lot more in common than most would think. We were both rescued by our owner Nicole. I was in a pet store with many other Iguanas and was very sick. She found me and took me home and nursed me back to health. Burly was an SPCA rescue, his owners could no longer keep him because his buddy, a Macaw, beat him up a lot.

    We love our home, we get lots of treats and love. Burly and I take showers together and like to hangout and watch TV as you can see in this picture. I am watching with my eyes shut, but people do that, too I have noticed. Our mom sometimes asks if we know what we are watching but she can't understand us when we answer. If our mom didn't rescue us, we don't know what would have happened to use, we love our mom.
