There are a lot more opportunities for mischief in a multiple pet household! Before Luke joined our crew, all of the pets were getting older and we didn’t get quite as much mischief. Luke has added some youth and vigor to the game, and he gets his sisters involved as well. Also, don’t expect much peace and quiet when you have multiple pets. When I was gone to Nashville, I couldn’t believe how quiet a room could be in the morning! I am more used to this morning routine:
I missed that when I was gone, because I can’t sleep most mornings anyway, and they always make me laugh (and don’t worry, they are just playing, we watch them closely to be sure no one gets seriously mean). Ever since our beagle Kobi, we’ve been early risers. Before Kobi passed on, he was sure to teach his early rising habits to Luke. Multiple pets definitely learn from each other, and it’s not always the things you want them to learn!
It’s not just the pets though, the humans have more opportunities for mischief involving the animals. If you have five pets, and then have a lot going on in addition to that (such as a trip out of town), you might accidentally forget someone’s birthday. Samantha’s birthday was last Monday and I felt so bad that we had missed it!
Hopefully the goodies I brought home from my trip will make up for that unintended oversight. Or now that she’s getting older she’s like her Mom and mostly wants to ignore birthdays anyway. 🙂
Now what further mischief do you suppose the humans got up to that led to this craziness from Cricket and Luke? I bet some of you can guess. Come back tomorrow to find out what this was all about!
