‘My Iguana’ (2013)

Image result for images of iguana and cat

The iguana in this picture looks exactly like mine.

This pet of mine died in 1978, and I still miss him. Well, I had him 17 years: that’s a long time.


True, you couldn’t get him to play fetch or hide-and-seek; but in all other respects, he was all that could be desired in a pet. He and our cat Buster would have gotten along like a house on fire.

It’s amazing what love and kindness can do.
