Dearest Mushu, you are beautiful indeed, a stunning green Chinese Water Dragon. We are so glad to learn your loving and beloved mom rescued you just in time from horrible conditions! Now you are getting the tender, loving care you deserved all along. You are thriving with the water you love and good food, with free time climbing on mom. How cute to see you on her head! You and she love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Mushu, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and mom and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
