Latest on my little egg layer

I’m hoping to wrap this up, but we’ve got either egg #6 or egg #7. Someone keeps kicking eggs out of her grouping, and I put them back and she’ll take it immediately and tuck it under her. I went ahead and ordered her the nest from DummyEggs.com as well, and I’m thinking that it’s […]

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 […]

Somebody wants to be a mommy.

Is your cat driving you nuts?

My eldest male, Tommy Gargoyle, really has his days sometimes. They were on hiatus for a great deal of time because he was on Prozac for over a year. He was so pent up with anxiety that he was spraying everywhere, everyday. I decided in December to take him off, and see what happened. Today […]

Guinea pigs are amazing little fuzz butts

It took an extra week to get to cleaning the pig pen after I caught a cold. They do try to take care of it themselves, if they have everything else they need. When the guinea pigs are soiling different parts of their pen, they start dragging hay around the pig pen and lay it […]

I got bit again. Why, bird? Why?

You can’t just keep them locked up because there is a 20% chance they’ll misbehave. Idris wanted to hang out again. I go into this, fully understanding that there may be something I don’t recognize that I’m doing, and she’ll bite me. Or she’ll just bite me because she’s happy, or I’m not looking at […]

Things have been going so well lately, with regards to the birds. Koi is turning 7 next month. Her bird, Jak, is turning 8 in July. This there is this birb. Dam birb: Idris. Idris will be turning 6 in February on Valentine’s Day. I’ve been though bitey bird spells before, but they were with […]

There were no fewer than 4 large dogs

at this party I spent about six hours at. When I got home I was interrogated by my cat. He was intimately sniffing me all over with his mouth open. “Momsth. What were you doing wisth goggies?” Nothing. Then I swap my clothes out and toss the old ones in the hamper to go do […]

update from the surgeon

Tommy’s day on Friday was a tough one. I got up and fed him a half serving and gave him a dramamine. A half hour or so later we put him in the carrier. He was thrashing about and going wild (I’ve never seen him like this) and got the cone off in the carrier […]
