Well, my son comes home today from a week's vacation and I'm proud to say his animals all survived.
He has two incredibly cute Chinchillas, four sweet degus and three fresh water fish tanks. Each one has a name and personality, including all the fish.
I was left with a long, detailed list of instructions of what to feed when and when to turn lights on and off, etc. and I'm glad my week of "worry and responsibility" is over.
Some people ask me why he has so many pets and I just reply, "Pets are a lot of work, but I suppose well worth the enjoyment they bring into our lives or we wouldn't bother."
Now time to sign off and feed the cat before I take the dog for her walk. Have a great weekend!
