Lily, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lily
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Standard Gray Chinchilla
Home: Charlotte, North Carolina, USA
   My pet's name is Lily. Lily is special because she keeps me company when my husband is away. He is a professional baseball player, so half the time he is gone, playing in other cities. Then it's just Lily and me. She is very independent, but loves to have her belly rubbed. I like to watch her bounce off the walls when I let her run at night. (When you have a chinchilla, you know how that expression came about - she literally bounces off the walls with those big back feet!)

    Lily is very curious and tries to get into new places all the time. The other day, I looked up and she was on the kitchen counter. How did she do that? Lily entertains me and makes me feel not so alone. Right now, we live in Charlotte, NC, but we move all the time because we are a baseball family, so Lily gets to explore lots of new places!
