there! My name is Marbles. I was so lucky for my Mommy to bring me
home because the pet store I was in had about 20 other tiny bowls filled
with colorful Bettas. I seemed to be the "dull" one in the crowd. But my
Mommy seemed to fall in love with me instantly. I now have a wonderful
home, and am surrounded by many other pets.
I did have a scary experience I'd like to share with you, even at my
tender young age. My Mommy and her mommy were cleaning my bowl and they
had put me in a little red bowl like they always do. This day I was
feeling very energetic and decided to jump out of this little red bowl
thinking I would be landing back into my home. But, to my surprise, I
was laying on a cold, dry counter top. At first no one even seemed to
notice me. I heard a yell and Big Mommy ran over to me and immediately
put me back into my home. I was so happy and relieved.
To tell you the truth I think the two mommies were also, as they have
never walked away from me again while cleaning my home. I feel very safe
and happy with my new family and have decided to leave the jumping for
the wild rabbits that Mommy feeds outside! I show my happiness by making
bubble nests, and by doing my best to look pretty for mommy and I love
it when she talks to me and feeds me, too.
