(THEME MUSIC PLAYING)

In animation, a dog runs around a yard where a horse works on a computer, a fish jumps in a water feature, a lizard skates on a skateboard rap and a bird plays electric guitar.

The name of the show reads "Pet superstars."

Zach is 8, with short straight light brown hair and wears jeans and a mint green T-shirt.

HE sits in a chair with his cat and says HI, I'M ZACH,
AND I AM 8 YEARS OLD.
AND THIS IS MY BEST FRIEND,
MILLA.
I GOT MILLA FROM A RESCUE
SHELTER CALLED FOREVER FRIENDS.
AND SHE WAS GOING TO BE
A FOSTER CAT,
BUT WE DECIDED TO KEEP HER,
BECAUSE I LOVED HER SO MUCH
THAT I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO
GIVE HER AWAY.
MY MOM CHOSE MILLA
BECAUSE I WAS AT SCHOOL,
BECAUSE SHE WANTED
TO SURPRISE ME.
IT WAS A VERY BIG SURPRISE.
I SPEND ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF
A DAY WITH MILLA ON SCHOOLDAYS,
AND IF IT'S WEEKENDS,
I USUALLY SPEND ABOUT
THREE HOURS WITH MILLA.
WE RUN AROUND OUTSIDE TOGETHER.
WE SLEEP.
(MEOWING)

He looks at her and says DON'T YOU?
YOU SLEEP A LOT.

He holds a rubber lizard and says THIS IS HER FAVOURITE TOY,
THE LIZARD.
DUN-DUN-DUN!
MILLA.

He makes Milla play with the lizard.

Zach says I LIKE HOW MILLA IS VERY ACTIVE,
AND ON HOT SUMMER DAYS,
SHE LIKES TO GO AROUND
AND SUNBAKE IN THE SUN.
THE THING I MOST LOVE ABOUT—

Milla jumps off Zach's lap.

Zach says I TOLD YOU SHE'S ACTIVE.
SOMETIMES, MILLA GOES UNDERNEATH
THE COUCH FOR HOURS.
MILLA IS A VERY SPECIAL CAT,
SHE WAS MADE FEBRUARY
IN THE CAT CALENDAR FOR 2016.
AND IT HAS A LITTLE STORY
OF MILLA AND ME.
I'VE TRAINED HER TO DO
A HEAD-FIST BUMP.
I THINK IF MILLA HAD A VOICE,
IT WOULD BE, "PET ME, PET ME,
OR I WILL HEAD-BUTT YOU."
I CARE FOR MILLA BY FEEDING HER,
GIVING HER STROKES
WHEN SHE WANTS THEM,
AND MILLA CARES FOR ME BY
GUARDING ME UNTIL I GO TO SLEEP
EVERY NIGHT BEFORE BED.
AND MILLA'S FAVOURITE FOOD
IS TUNA FROM THE CAN.
WE ONLY GIVE MILLA TUNA
SOMETIMES AS A TREAT.
(MEOWING)
SHE'S CALLING FOR TUNA.
BUT AFTERWARDS,
HER BREATH STINKS.
MILLA, COME BACK TO THE CAMERA.

Zach laughs.

He says SHE WENT MISSING FOR TWO WEEKS,
AND GOT HIT BY A CAR,
AND SHE STILL FOUND HER WAY
ALL THE WAY BACK
WITH HER BROKEN LEG.
AND SHE WAS VERY, VERY BRAVE
WHEN SHE CAME BACK.
AND THAT'S WHY I WOULD GIVE
MILLA A BRAVERY AWARD.
I LOVE MILLA SO MUCH.
