07/24/2017 – Miscellaneous Monday

You know how a bunch of miscellaneous things can really pile up if you let them? What better way to start off a week than by clearing out a bunch of miscellaneous photos on a Monday? Okay, let’s get through these.

One of a series of scratched things.

When not opening packages, Quint doubles as a mouse tail chewer. Reason Number 83 why Colehaus mice are tailless.

Terrible photo of a fuzzy Miss Newton hugging a stuffed trout. Awesome shot of the kitchen trashcan lid.

05/05/2017 – Friday Fun

Just about a month ago, we mentioned Zuzu and her love for the Ring o’ Fun. Well, even patrol sergeants have to go to work every now and then, so while Patrol Sergeant Zuzu was off probably inspecting the inside of her eyelids, Sunny discovered the Ring o’ Fun a.k.a. Turbo Ring.

She got the hang of it fast and spent several minutes whacking that ball around and around, faster and faster.

First with one paw going one direction, and then the other paw whapping the ball the other direction.

Until finally, the ball came to a slow stop.

And then she sat there and stared at it some more, you know, just in case it decided to take off on its own or something. Or maybe she was figuring out, in her head, some velocity equation that would explain why the ball seemed to slow down faster when going one direction opposed to the other.

And after a long while, she finally walked away and took that much needed nap. Hard math will do that to you, or so we hear.
