Raja, the Pet of the Day
Name: Raja
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Miniature Zebu
Home: Armada, Michigan, USA
   Raja is a mini Zebu also known as a mini cow. They are sacred animals in southern India and now that I've had Raja since one month old, I understand why. I bought her at the Armada fair when she was about a month old. I bottle-fed her goats' milk until she was about five months old. She loved her bottle so much I let her have it until I could no longer afford the expensive goats' milk.

    Raja's very loving and affectionate (even though her kisses really rub my skin raw) her tongue is quite rough. She loves to run and play when it's cold out and her best buddies and stall-mates at night are my two fainting goats, Thelma and Louise. I love her with all my heart and she knows that. I am her mommy. Every day I let her out of the corral to run and play with my six dogs. Once in a while she'll accidentally steps on their toes, but most of the time they have a lot of fun and the dogs just won't stop kissing her. I have the same problem. Raja just is very kissable. Her maximum weight will be about 300-350 pounds of pure love!!
