Eli’s my favorite, everyone.

YAAAAAAAAY

the rats are trying to drink from the same bottle at the same time

ALL MY BABIES ARE BEING SO CUTE TODAY

she is sitting at the base of the tree, trying to act nonchalant and the squirrel is chattering at her rather angrily

aaaaand just saw Chapel chase said squirrel up a tree

I just saw a squirrel get hit in the head with a falling acorn

Our rats are little parkour babies, and instead of using the ladders we built for them, they jump up on the chicken wire and squeeze through the space between it and the shelf to get to the next level

so i got rid of the ladders and rearranged a couple of the shelves so they now have one full shelf (instead of all half shelves like before) for better running space, and the rest are slightly staggered for variation to keep them entertained

they are bouncing all over the place, and stashing all the food in the dig box and it’s just super cute and i’m really proud of what we built

Shout out to all of the oldest children…who were used as the tester kids and now watch their younger siblings get away with shit you would have been killed for.. Justice will never be restored

i definitely remember that and definitely have no idea what it was called

Okay but I do remember the eyes as large as dinner plates and I remember having a hard time conceptualizing that but then I had my children:

this has the dogs but the character is not a child and the story doesnt end with the dogs
