Teachers, save “Buy me THIS pet!” to assign it to your class.

Example: Dear Mom and Dad, I am desperate for a pet hyena! Before you tell me no, I have some really good reasons why this is the perfect pet for me! First, hyenas are always laughing, and you know how important it is to laugh! They say laughter is medicine for the soul. Second, their waste is odorless (crazy - right!), so you will never have to worry about them stinking up our house! Finally, they live for a really long time! They have a life span of 12 years! Now, I know you are probably worried that they are a carnivorous animal and might try to eat me. BUT, I promise to feed them three times a day so they won't even think about licking me! I'll even do extra chores to earn money for their food. Just think about what a wonderful addition a hyena would be to our family! What more could you ask for - they are funny, stink-free, and lifelong friends (that I promise won't eat me!). Sincerely, Mrs. Knupp
