Decisions, Decisions

Lulu: “Okay, we got some chew blocks for Mr. Nibbles and a bag of timothy grass for Spicoli, but they’re out of mealworms. Do you think Vermin would like some crickets instead?”
Chaplin: “She’ll probably complain about having to pick their little legs out of her teeth. But so what?”
Blue: “The little tiny insects you have these days are so cute. We used to have dragonflies with two foot wingspans and millipedes nine feet long.”
Charlee: “Oooh, giant bugs! So much fun to stare at … No, wait, that sounds a little scary, actually.”

Lulu’s Lyrics: Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of Eating Things)

Hello friendlies! Lulu here with some new lyrics for you! This is my version of the famous Eurythmics song “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”, which is a good song, but never actually tells you what sweet dreams are made of.

Lulu: “Such as?”
Chaplin: “Finely tuned and highly sensitive whiskers, for one.”

Lulu: “You do realize your finely tuned and highly sensitive whiskers are also inside the cup, right?”
Chaplin: “I said FOR ONE.”

Caturday Matinee: Training Day

Dada’s note: Charlee, Chaplin, and Lulu are continue to have managed interactions with each other while we work to convince Chaplin that Lulu is an acceptable addition to the house. (Charlee and Lulu are already cool, because they’re both chill ladies.) This involves having everyone together in the same room for increasingly long times while they get cookies and practice being calm. Guess which animal is best at that …

If you guessed Charlee, then you chose … wisely.
