Critter Misbehavior

Have you ever heard someone say, derisively,"Get a job." Well, be a stay at home mom for a few years and watch what happens when you return to work. The humans will do their best. They will demonstrate the ability to feed themselves and produce clean clothes. The fur balls, on the other hand, have a different spin on the departure of the stay at home mom. Abby, Internet Police Dog, became ill the first day I was away from home more than three hours. Yep, she made a big stinky mess in three out of five rooms of our home. Unfortunately, the bunnies had a bad day too(sob). Tisha, the original Manx, held on by her claws to the back of my chair. She ran off the German shepherd, tried to bite me, and had a fit when Manly Man removed her from the room. I do not intend to be a stay at home pet mommy. Seriously.
