What is the funniest thing your pet has done?

Obsidian is a silly dude overall. His demeanour is unlike other otters. His best friends are a weiner dog named Violet, a kitten named Yzma and a raccoon named Roscoe (obviously he’s always accompanied by Onyx though!) He is so aloof that he doesn’t see them as different creatures which is extremely endearing and says a lot about his gentle character. That being said, he sometimes tries to mimic their sounds and oh boy, is it a horrendous fail! But it’s absolutely hilarious!!

Why should they be America's Favorite Pet?

Obsidian has been through a lot this past year. He was given a 50% chance of survival which he recently overcame after numerous months spent in and out of the vet! Winning Americas Favorite Pet would help ensure that both him and Onyx (as well as any other rescues our human takes in) will always have the best veterinary care and an abundance of shrimp!
