PET lover and burlesque performer Jane Lovell will be entering her pet Woma pythons Womy and Marigold in to the Inglewood on Beaufort (IOB) Pet Parade on Monday, February 26.
Lovell said while the animals did not provide the affection of a cat or dog, the snakes, lizards and stick insects she shares her Armadale home with aren’t demanding when it comes to love and attention.
“Water, heat and an occasional feed and they’re happy,” she said.
IOB is encouraging people to enter their pets, from cats, dogs, rats and goats to sick insects by emailing their name, pet’s name and type of animal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prizes will include a $100 voucher to spend at the Bedford-Dianella Vet Centre, a Wendy Binks Pet Portrait and a Treat Truck Voucher.
Former My Kitchen Rules contestants Kelly Steele and Emma Donnelly and Bedford-Dianella Vet Centre vet and former Amazing Race Australia contestant Sally Yamamoto-Smith will judge the parade that starts at 6.30pm.
Inglewood on Beaufort patron Vince Garreffa and former House Rules contestant Carole Bramston will host the event, which will raise money for Lifeline WA.
Entry is a gold coin donation per pet.
