Pig Watch


College Kid dropped by the house last week for a few minutes. She was on her way to San Antonio, Texas. She is going to work for a very elite veterinary clinic that specializes in cats. Hey, I think that might be something I'd like to see, but she said we couldn't go with her. It was toooooo far for our tiny bladders to manage a car ride like that. Glynn likes College Girl quite a lot, so she was happy to see her even if it was only for a little while. Since this job is temporary and College Kid will be coming back in a few weeks, she asked if we could look after her cats while she was gone. Well sure, we told her. Be glad to keep those cats entertained while College Kid is out of pocket.

Besides the two kitties, we are also watching her Guinea pig, Hagrid. He was named after the giant in the Harry Potter movies, since he is a Guinea pig of "substantial size". Do you think there is a Substantial Guinea Pig Club out there somewhere? Anyway, Glynn is endlessly fascinated with Hagrid and can't seem to keep her eyes off him, so he has now been moved to Mom's office where he can enjoy a bit more privacy. Being a Guinea pig of few words, he's a nice, quiet companion for a working environment. That's fine, as long as he stays out of our basket of squeakies.

Hiya Tell,
We could never have cats visiting us. It would be a disaster. Enjoy your company.

Hi Tell. How's the catwatching? Do they do nothing but sleeeeeeeeeeep then when they wake up are just plain annoying? Don't want to play and not even understand the rudimentary rules of barking..mmm yes, I thought so. Boring.

Glynn looks fascinated by the Hagrid, hope she is able to sneak into the office for more meetings.

OK so I stopped by to visit your blog because I know it's been forever. But I am scared now. You have a college kid that doesn't live at home with you? Oh let's hope my mom doesn't read this and get any ideas of moving out and going away to college. Cause mind you I love my grams but her full time would mean no running. I might have to ban mom from reading your blog. Hope you have a good weekend though and glad you got a visit with your college girl.

Wirey hugs,
Ozzy

Wow, cats and a guinea pig! We never have such interesting guests here! Somehow I don't think the Js would trust ME around a guinea pig, hehehe! J x
