We had a great time at Pet Fest!! We were non-stop busy the whole day as animal and pet lovers joined in to celebrate the animals we love to love. Pepper, the Patagonian cavy, was a star as everyone wanted to get a closer look at what the strange looking animal was! Next time we bring Pepper to a large event, I will have to get myself a sign to wear stating "Patagonian Cavy >>" so I won't have to repeat myself till my throat goes horse! It's great to expose Montanans to new species of animals and teach them what makes a good pet... and what does not. In my opinion, a Patagonian cavy would not make a very good pet for the average person. On the other hand, Freia the dumbo rat would make an amazing pet and I think most animal loving children should start out with a rat for their first pet. Freia charmed her way into the good graces of many visitors at Pet Fest, so did Sandy the sand boa. Even those that said they were not fans of snakes eventually overcame their fears and gave into their curiosity and extended a finger to touch Sandy's smooth cool scales.
I would like to extend a hearty Thank You to Marketplace Media for donating our booth this year! We loved Pet Fest and hope to be able to enrich the Missoula community in the future as well. Thank you Megan and Linda Baumann!!!
