Farewell, Mystery

Mystery was a green iguana who lived with Smeagol, Strider and Gizmo. She was given to the Mom as a present while she was in college. She grew to about five feet long, most of that being tail. Mystery spent most of her time in the basement in her large enclosure. When the weather was warm, she got to go outside on her harness and leash. She didn't much care for her harness and would sometimes try to roll around to see if she could get out of it. The cats would go down to the basement to visit her sometimes, but they never played together. Mystery enjoyed her live with her basking lamp and plenty of food. She really wanted to get out and climb the trees, but she never got to do that. I imagine that she is climbing lots of trees at the Bridge now.

                                     Mystery had a great life.
                                     She never knew hunger or strife.
                                             She ran off to play
                                             At the Bridge all day.
                                     Now she's climbing trees in her new life.
