Meet The Famous Pet
What’s life like as a celebrity pet? Game Shakers star Madisyn Shipman’s chameleon, Tails, tells all!
How did you come to live with Madisyn?
In 2014, Maddie and her younger brothers picked me out at the pet store. They were so excited to bring me home — they always wanted a chameleon!
What do you and Maddie have in common?
We have a lot in common! We’re both silly and very loyal. But Maddie’s super outgoing, and I’m definitely more chill.
What’s your favorite thing to do with Maddie?
Sleep, LOL! We chameleons sleep 12 hours per day, and the best way to snooze is snuggled up with Maddie.
Where do you like to hang out at your house?
Whether we’re in L.A. while Maddie’s filming, or in New York City (where we live the rest of the time), Maddie’s bed is the best spot! It’s soft, warm and full of cozy blankets.
Do you and Maddie ever go on adventures?
Not so much! But once she brought me all over N.Y.C. when she was visiting with her friends. It was cool to see the sights!
Tell us a funny Maddie and Tails story! One time, Maddie thought it would be really funny to take me into the bath with her. I DID NOT like it at all! I tried to get out of there right away. Of course, Maddie thought it was hysterical.
Have you ever gotten Maddie into trouble?
Well, yes, but it wasn’t my fault —I swear! I usually sleep in my habitat at nighttime, but Maddie can’t stand being away from me, so sometimes she sneaks me out and hides me in her room. Her mom gets a little mad about that whenever she catches us, but it’s totally worth it — we have so much fun!
Have you ever seen Maddie do something embarrassing?
Well, there was that time when she was clowning around and slipped and fell down the stairs. Luckily, she was totally fine, but her face turned so red!
If you guys created a mobile game together like the one on Game Shakers, what would it be about?
Bugs! Maddie and I would create a game to show kids how cool bugs are.
What secret stuff can you tell us about Maddie?
Maddie is obsessed with keeping her room clean — she’s always for yelling at her three brothers making it dirty! She also dances the and sings like a goofball around we house, and she loves it when as a have pizza and Netflix night family! She’s a great friend, too.
“He loves being with people, which is rare for a chameleon,” Maddie tells GW.
