lazy days of summer

All is well here at itty bitty central. The Workers are full blast growing, they get to run the hallway twice a day, and are the best behaved group I have had in a long time. They can run the hall, which includes the bedroom and bath, as well as my office, and they STILL go back to their room to use the litter box! Amazing. Just like with kids, they can be too busy playing to make it back to the "toilet" before they have to go. That has not happened with this crew. So well behaved!

Pam has gotten totally past her not wanting to be picked up phase. She loves attention now. Jim still has issues, but he is much better, and still purrs when he gets skritchy scratches. They love to play with Buck, and try to climb Bentley when he comes in to clean up any scraps they might leave in their food bowl. Usually, there isn't anything but a crumb or two. They are big eaters!

Alas, I seem to have fallen in love with the whole bunch of them. So have the rest of the crew. I hope someone I know will adopt them, so I can see them grow up!

Dwight strikes a pose.

Pam, about to attack.

Shhhh. No one can see me. (Mikey hides)

Pam is fearless.

Bentley thought he was the Alpha. Pam has other ideas.

Can't we all get along?

Perfect timing, as Pam leaps over Dwight.

Jim plays with Bishop's tail.

Mikey has a dirty nose. They have finally learned not to suck their food, and actually bite it.

Dwight tries to get Buck's tail.
