A Strange Petsitting Request
When it comes to babysitting one New York pet, it pays to take things slow and steady. Amanda Green made waves in March when she posted a Craigslist ad seeking someone to take her eight-kilogram tortoise, Henry, out for walks in Central Park—using a stroller to transport him there. Green received offers from people as far away as Australia who wished to play with the animal. A woman with previous pet store experience landed the gig, but fans can keep up with Henry on his Facebook page, the Notortoise BIG.
