Marbles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Marbles
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Betta fish
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
   Hey 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.
