Owwies and Hives

Damien has always been a trouper. I got him when he was teeny tiny and he held his own against my larger rat boys, even after my cat plucked him up during a routine cleaning. Damien never leaves his cage unless he’s with me. He doesn’t go around and explore the place. He doesn’t see […]

down to 16

We put The Captain down today. He was the best little guy we’ve had and over the last few weeks he’s been on medication. It started with a head tilt and wobbling and I said to dismal, “ok but I need one more symptom” because head tilts can be either an inner ear issue or […]

When you go as often as I do

a new little guy

I got an email from one of the techs at the exotics animal hospital I use for “the kids”. (all for adoption)There were three hairless females up in North Scottsdale at Petco that had 10 hairless pups between them and that she just got one for her female at home. I made it up there […]

Stressed? No, Overwhelmed is more like it.

My dog came upstairs when we forgot to close the baby gate. Then she ran when we tried to get her to stay still. Oh god. She was on the couch with me this evening and tossing and turning and looking at me for help. Her knee was really killing her. I went to Petsmart […]

Yeah they pulled the latrine forward and started pottying behind it in the original spot. Posted with WordPress for BlackBerry.

I got it at Ross

I will still tout the cheaps of Ross. I got some very small casserole-type dishes to work as litter pans and start trying to get my boys potty trained. Posted with WordPress for BlackBerry.
