My iguana pet, Hoshi, would act normally as other iguanas do.
Hard to tame,
Always scratches the tank and want to jump out of it,
And runs in a greedy giddy way whenever I release it to roam inside the apartment hall.
As usual, today in the evening as I indulge myself watching Sex and the City DVD, I released my pet from its tank, to have another exciting discovery adventure in the hall.
After iguana proofing my house by closing all doors and windows, I watched the tv, and only checked the naughty lizard once a while as it dashed from one end of the apartment to the other.
As I was so busy with the idiot black box, slowly Hoshi walked towards me on the carpet. I looked at Hoshi and looked back at the TV.
And to my most pleasant surprise, suddenly Hoshi jumped onto my left arm. It just stayed there, looking at me.
For a moment there, Hoshi achieved a certain level of tameness. It never budged, as if hoping for my response. So I gave it a rub on the neck and it closed its eyes.
Ah, it’s nice being loved, even by a pet.
