Single guinea pig

It’s been a week, and Murphy is working out alright. She’s talking to us all day long with sassy attitude. Hey Lady! Oh!!! That Guy! You Too! And she’s always asking us for treats. This evening I had just left the dining room area and sat on the couch. I looked over and she was […]

My cat breaks into every microchip feeder we’ve tried

Tommy Gargoyle makes me nuts. I love him, but nothing is ever easy. “oh… you need to feed separate diets? You should get a microchip feeder!” Even I will say this to people on the cat forums as if it were a cure-all for the dilemma, but I will also weave them this brief tale […]

6 days later with the Green Cheek egg layer

No more eggs. Koi Monkey has been charming. She hasn’t been goofing off in her previous nesting location and is very active and outgoing. She talks to me all the time and we banter back and forth with our birdie phrases. Sometimes she wants to hang out with me personally, and sometimes she hops on […]

I was wrong. We keep finding eggs.

She may be up to 6 by now. Koi keeps laying on the dummies, and Idris keeps messing with her. I’m going to buy her a nest since Idris keeps stealing the eggs.

My little egg layer (w female partner) seems to have stopped

Koi hasn’t laid since Monday. Monday was her fourth egg. This was also the same day the dummy clutch arrived in the mail, so I took her eggs away and gave her five, hoping she wouldn’t lay the 5th egg that is typical in the clutch of a green cheek conure. She never built a […]
