Can You Guess What Our New Pet Is?

*Before I begin this post, I wanted to say that this day brings back a ton of memories. 7 years ago today, a terrible tragedy happened that effected our entire country and I just wanted to take a minute to remember the many that were lost. I would also like to encourage you to take a moment and pray for those families who today are remembering their fathers, mothers, sisters, husbands, sons, daughters, wives, aunts, uncles, and dear friends. My heart goes out to them. My prayer is that The Lord would bring them comfort and that memories of the wonderful times with their loved ones would come flooding back to them.

We have a new pet. Yep. His name is Tom. K named him...or her. It was quite a spontaneous decision to get this pet but, so far things have been great. I'd like to play a little game with you if I may. I'd like to see who can guess what our new pet is. Sorry, I can't offer a prize because my current contest is offering a prize so, this one is just for fun. Are you with me? Ok, good.
I will give you a few clues...
  • He is very low maintenance
  • Is not a dog, cat, bunny, or even hamster
  • He is currently eating oatmeal, grapes and carrots
  • He is supposedly nocturnal but has been awake all day

Ok. Hopefully those clues will help you. Ya know what? If anyone actually gets it right...I'll send you a pair of earrings because I'm feelin' mighty generous. So, think good and hard and see what you come up with. You only have until tomorrow morning and then I will post the answer with his picture tomorrow afternoon. So, go to it!

I'm guessing some kind of rodent. A rat? A mouse?

Anonymous said...

I want to say ferret or chinchilla..??

or I have a feeling it's not even a real animal...hmm that would be tricky. I am not good with those think outside the box things :)

oo! Or a sugar glider, and if its not, it should be.

And yes I did google "nocturnal pets" in order to be able to guess... haha

I'm going to guess hedgehog.

When we lived in an apartment, I had a pet rat named Vailey and she was cute and white and I loved her. So part of me wanted to guess rat, but I'm still sticking with hedgehog.

Circular Logic said...

Oh no! I see someone else guessed hedgehog already. Bummer! Guess I need to make sure I start checking your blog while I'm at work!

I'm saying it's a sugar glider. I have a friend that has one and the diet seems very similar. They are very cute! And super easy to take care of.

Circular Logic said...

I keep checking your blog because I'm eager to find out what kind of pet you got!!! You know me...I love animals. Unless it's a snake, and if you post pictures of that, I'll never look at your blog again! (I'm serious.)

You have 8 followers already! Awesome! (I was #1 :) I should figure out how to put that application on my blog. Maybe Sunday I'll have a chance to figure that out.

Sheesh, I should have just sent you an e-mail! I didn't mean to write this much. But I know you <3 comments, so here you go...a nice long one!
