Our house bunny needed his nails clipped yesterday. It was such a hot day, and I had to bring all the kids with me, I thought – I am NOT carrying a pet carrier all around the mall. So we did the next best thing, and hauled the old twin baby stroller out of the basement.
Wary of strange people’s stares, I carefully placed a blanket over the top of the stroller, and it looked like any other baby stroller. The only problem I could see, would be running into someone I knew, who would then think I had another child!
We ran all our errands, and headed to the pet store. Pulled up the stroller, and uncovered the pet carrier. There was already a customer at the counter, buying some tasty mice for her pet snake. She was gently petting and rubbing her snake, while talking to the clerk and paying for a mouse dinner.
When she finished, she lifted up the snake and gently placed him in a baby sling, which she placed over her shoulder. As she left the store, I laughed. I mean, how strange is that? A bunny in a stroller, and a snake in a sling.
