Ask the Pet Psychic
By guest columnist Rona Ronaditsy
Our pet giraffes, Harold and Maude, have expressed interest in becoming therapy animals. I’m not so sure. Could we make this work?
Absolutely! Your giraffes told me they want to greet people in hospitals, nursing homes, schools and minimum-security prisons. This isn’t as impractical as you might think. Harold and Maude explained that they can interact with any humans standing near an open window on the second or third floor. Even a prison meet-and-greet should be okay; just clear it with the warden so nobody gets shot leaning through a barred window to pet them. Take it from me: jaded people who are bored with visits from therapy dogs and therapy cats will perk up at the sight of a giraffe’s skyscraper neck, ossicones (antlers), and weird blue tongue.

I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
