Thanksgiving 2017

Capybara Turkey

Skipper’s Post:

Yesterday was what MelT calls a “holiday.” The name of the holiday was Thanksgiving. It’s supposed to be a day when everyone thinks about how great their life is. Everyone except for turkeys that is. They aren’t thinking about how great their lives are because their lives weren’t that great and they are dead. Dead pretty much trumps everything. I’m thankful I’m not a turkey. I’m thankful I’m not dead.

Ending 2016

Sharing corn with chickens

Sorry there have been so very few posts about Mudskipper Rous this year. It’s not because of her. She is doing fine. She’s as bad as ever, getting into more and more trouble everyday. The problem is me and my vision. Ever since my brain hemorrhage, I just can’t get motivated about taking photos. This is probably because it is so hard to compose them for me. Also, I can’t see the whole photo at one time. Also, all photos look bad to me now. So I’ve been remiss. Still, as the year comes to a close, I thought you’d like to get an update on her.

Maple WoMER: The Dread Pirate Rabbit

 

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of carrot juice!

Maple WoMER (see this post if you don’t know how she got that name) has spent the past couple of weeks really living up to her name. I don’t know why she would do that because it seems like the most horrible thing ever. Not only has Melly been complaining about how much Maple costs ($2500 and counting!), but Maple has suffered a lot. This week she had to go to the vet and have her eye taken out! As terrible as that sounds, I think Maple feels better without the eye than she did with it. I don’t want to get into details about why.

Sleep, Capybara! Sleep!

 

Sleepy 'bara

This is the earliest known photo of me sleeping, right after I came to live with Melly and Rick. I am 11 months old in this photo and adapting well to my new home. But why, you may ask, do I have a tape measure around my neck? That is something Rick dreamed up to get me used to being harnessed. I ate it a few days later.

A New Home (for Chickens)

 

Am I mocking Philip?

Melly set aside a big chunk of today for building a special home for my new chickens. Their home is called a coop and when you put them in it, they are all cooped up. The coop came in a big box from www.MyPetChicken.com, which is almost as cute a web address at www.GiantHamster.com!
