Cute AND Cuddly

Jessica is a hungry, hungry hippo

Jessica, a hippopotamus in South Africa, has a cush set-up. As an orphan calf, one nice family took her in and tamed her--so much so that she now takes the liberty of ambling into their kitchen in search of snacks. Shucks, who cares if she breaks the furniture? Jessica is really, really cute, even when she's begging for MORE snacks. Plus she is challenging stereotypes, proving against all odds that enormous, dangerous mammals indeed make good pets. Dogs? Old hat. Cats? Booor-ing. Hippopotami? Now there's a pet. Let's just hope Jessica doesn't turn up in the news for purposes other than a fluff story, if you catch my drift.
