Four people gather around a bed where a pet capybara is resting

No one respects my privacy

The other day, August 5th to be exact, I had some stalkers — I mean “visitors” — from Australia come over. Their names were Steven (hat), Zach (plaid), Lauren (dress), and Henry (white shirt).

Wesley & Fiona: The Capybaras of October

All four feet on the scale!

All four feet on the scale!

I’m starting out with my cutest photo. Look at little Wesley (left) and Fiona (right)! I think they misunderstood me. I was telling Wesley to put all four of his feet on the scale but they must have though I said “all forefeet on the scale,” and so Fiona came over to do her part.
