We’re not fond of Frontier airlines

Around the holidays the flight prices can be ridiculous. Dismal has to fly out with his kids from DC to Phoenix and back again so they spend the holidays with their mother. I found a flea in my house. Don’t worry. We’re pretty sure the two are related. Because inflight Dismal’s thigh was getting bitten […]

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 […]

It’s October. We can’t have the windows open.

Tommy Gargoyle has been on Prozac for about two months now for his spraying issues and anxiety. He’s doing well and I haven’t seen him mark anything personally in quite some time.

I’m broke

Tommy’s nail is growing back really well since his last vet visit. I’m proud but I asked him not to do that anymore because it’s expensive. I have everything I need right now. My medications, my laundry money for the guinea pigs, cat litter, cat food, piggy food, piggy litter, hay, laundry detergent, bird food, […]

What a year

I started off 2015 with a sick, aging 8 year old guinea pig. Then she died. The morning after her death I heard her roommate wheeking all by herself for morning veg and it killed me. That day I brought home another sow from the humane society. She’d been checked by the vet there and […]
