Lonely Hearts Advert For Meerkat
We all know it's hard to try and find the perfect match out there but try being a meerkat. Meerkats are not the most common of animals in the UK so it poses a little bit of a problem when trying to find a mate.
Lily's owners decided to take it upon themselves to to help Lily find her mate, and thought the best way to go about it would be to use the best tool out there... The internet. So they put together a video of Lily and posted it onto the internet to encourage prospective suitors.
The website has had 74,000 hits since it began and soon the owner of another meerkat, from the Cambridge area saw the advert and contacted Lily's owners. The two were then introduced and now both Lily and her partner, named Mr Darcy are both living at Lily's home, at a park in Leicestershire. According to Lily's owners, the pair seem to have hit it off and they are hoping it will not be too long before the pitter patter of tiny meerkat feet.
