Best buddies

We were hoping Riley would love his new brother and it's happening better and faster than we thought.

Well, Riley has a little brother. He's a little mini-Riley and his name is Chaz. He's 4 months old, weighs 3 lb. 7 oz. and doesn't take anything from anyone. He and Riley are already making friends.

Our little adventurer

Well, it's been a while since I have written anything about Riley-roo.
He's been good [well - good for Riley].
Ok, he hasn't been good at all. I just haven't written anything.
He has developed a taste for plastic bags. We can't leave any of those bags that groceries come in around because he chews on them.
Bubble wrap is a biggie. He LOVES bubble wrap.
Of course, all of it is a choking hazard so I have been the plastic bag Nazi, driving John crazy.
Today was a new one though.
John just got up and was on his way out to the garage when he called me.
In order to get to the garage you have to go through the laundry room.
The dryer door was open so of course John looked in.
Who was curled up happy as a clam?
Riley, of course.
How did the door get opened? It's hard to do that. He might have done it.
More than likely, John left it ajar when he emptied the dryer last night.
But now we have one more thing to watch out for.

How long do hummingbirds live?

Can you believe the little hummingbird who has taken possession of our feeder is still at it?
Day after day, he sits on a branch near the feeder and chases any other hummer away. I would have thought he would have given up by now. It's been a month. But no. He seems more determined than ever.
There must be a lesson in there.

I just love when cats sleep with their paws over their face. It's like they are saying to the world "Don't bother me, I'm enjoying my nap."
Is there any animal that seems to enjoy sleeping more?
