My guinea pigs are falling apart

I realized I last discussed about Lily’s passing, but I haven’t updated on Murphy other than her temperament. My last guinea pig, Murphy (Lily’s daughter), ended up breaking a tooth on something.

The most impressive item you didn’t know you needed

I have been cleaning my Drinkwell Platinum fountains with a toothbrush and sponge for years. It was a messy job, it never felt complete, and it took more than ten minutes. I came across this one day while I was trying to pad my Chewy.com order up to $49 for free shipping, and I am […]

Preconceptions out the window – Raising pets

There are arguments for everyone’s household on parenting and raising your fids or kids. I have been doing both for 10 years now, and my opinions have evolved so much that I would probably shout a few choice things at myself even back in the first five years over the way I was doing things. […]
