beakertrout: Today I decided to clean the pantry of all the food that Beaker refuses to eat. I contacted the breeder to see if she can use it. Pretty big box! Jan 2, 2021 11:45:49 GMT -7

Jane: Mine are so fussy and wasteful too. Well Mitzi is, Monty just eats whatever he can. Jan 2, 2021 11:57:06 GMT -7

beakertrout: Wasteful, I figure the food has at least been sampled. Ignored is another thing.Beaker is so spoiled, and it's my fault. Jan 2, 2021 12:44:26 GMT -7

Jane: Mitzi will eat half of something, throw the rest down and then expect more of the same. Jan 3, 2021 4:20:44 GMT -7

chris: Ruby absolutely hates the tape measure. If we bring it out she goes into full-blown kamikaze mode attacking it, even when it's not extended to measure anything. I think she think it's some kind of dangerous snake or something. Jan 3, 2021 8:09:31 GMT -7

beakertrout: Beaker spotted my raisins and ZOOM, off the perch, across the floor and at my feet. He helped himself to a few. Jan 5, 2021 19:22:54 GMT -7

Jane: Mine don't like raisins but I have been giving them dried cherries which I soak in water first. Jan 8, 2021 3:05:58 GMT -7

Haz: I don’t like raisins so Chy has never had them. Jan 8, 2021 11:13:39 GMT -7

beakertrout: I was totally not in the mood for yelling today. Beaker started right in after I came home for lunch. He got recovered up.He got warned several times as well. Jan 19, 2021 13:11:50 GMT -7
