Pet Friendly Motels and travel

My father swears by Super 8, but he only travels with a dog or two. I’m traveling with 4 cats, 5 guinea pigs, and 3 parrots. La Quinta boasts a wonderful pet policy of no fees or deposits, HOWEVER, they will count ever animal you have whether it’s caged or free, towards their 2 Pet […]

self sufficient

Stewart and Tommy got into a buffet early this morning. Before dawn, early. Dismal got up and found sample pack after sample pack ripped open and eaten from. The the bags of treats were pulled out as well, but those came out unharmed. So then I got to sift through my samples and filtered them […]

When I work

I don’t update much except on Twitter. 140 characters generally gets my point across. But while I’m here I’m thinking of the animal kids of mine all the time. Hoping in the next few days that I remember to weigh the boys again, and see how they are still doing on their Metabolic diet. When […]

Happy May

I’ve been working since March 30 and haven’t done much updating. The updating I have been keeping up with regularly is the guinea pigs’ weight progress back on the old post. The cats have been well. Tommy Puma Gargoyle got fried chicken yesterday with mashed potatoes. He’s still on a diet but every now and […]

Aside from

the guinea pig that passed away, the old guinea pig with the young guinea pig I have left, the random bites I keep getting from my birds going crazy on me, and the cat being on a diet… nothing else seems to be going on but (1) thing: My baby bird has another word! I’ve […]

Another change in dynamic

I’m suddenly a hands-off piggie parent. My guinea pig,Honey, has been on medication since September and just recently passed on towards the Rainbow Bridge. That leaves two: Chai and Mu-Xi. Chai has never been a problematic guinea pig but she used to be called The Militia, always being able to evade me when I tried […]

New house. Poor birds.

This place has really high ceilings downstairs. The ceiling fan (that doesn’t work) is at least nine feet overhead. When we moved in, the girls were in a tiny cockatiel cage, bored to death and flying everywhere. Jak made it to the ceiling fan. I walked upstairs where I could see above the ceiling fan. […]

Speaking of molting and new feathers…

Jak and Koi decided to navigate to the other bathroom today and join me while I was clearing my sinuses. It must have sounded very interesting because the path to this bathroom is not the straight shot it is to my usual bathroom. The Xs also mark where they typically land. Jak happened to land […]
