old lady Mu-Xi Mu

I’ve been meaning to update but my heart isn’t in it. Mu Mu has been having a difficult time. Noticed Wednesday last week that she wasn’t eating her cucumber. I had seen her nibbling about two days before, but not fully eating. So this went on until a very early appointment Thursday morning at a […]

Do you have any arrangements?

I’m not in the greatest mental health or the best physical health. And while I was thinking about my Tommy dying on me recently as I admitted him to the hospital, I thought about what it would be like without him, and it sucks. Well, yesterday I was thinking about what it would be like […]

We’re not fond of Frontier airlines

this little guinea pig family has a lot of character

Yes. So ever since Lily moved in and popped out her daughters, Mu-Xi Mu has come out of her shell just a little. She’s turning 6 next year so I don’t expect too much out of her. But Lily’s kids are crazy. Potsticker is very food motivated and gathers mom and her sisters to follow […]

Invest in a good cooler.

I got my car checked out and oil changed before we’re supposed to be leaving later next week. I just ordered a cooler that is supposed to hold ice for 24 hours so I get put the rest of my bird mash in it and get snacks for the guinea pigs. The most disappointing thing […]

oh gosh they are so cute

Most of the time the guinea pigs think I’m either going to feed them or eat them myself. I cleaned the pen today and left them in the little swimming pool while I did it. After a while, it’s so funny, Lily and her daughter Murphy start to follow me around the room and stand […]

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 […]
