We have a meerkat living with us. He moved in with us on Friday night.
We’ve discoverd that meerkats are pretty low maintenance. They eat the same kind of food that we eat. He even at scrambled eggs with us this morning. They are friendly and like to play. They’ll even watch TV with you… if it’s on SpongeBob or Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. They’re pretty quiet creatures… although they make this chirping kind of sound that can get kind of annoying after a while. But, a couple of gentle reminders about using their “inside voice” and they quiet down. Ours is ‘house trained’ – thank goodness. I was worried about that most of all.
Our meerkat’s name is Shakespeare. We used to call him Skylar.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve had different animals live with us… we’re like a boarding house for animal characters. Bambi, Rudolph, and Spirit the horse have all lived with us at one time.
I don’t remember placing an ad in the imaginary animal newspaper, but somehow the word got out. Maybe it’s my fabulous cooking?
