Baby album memories

Was taking a brain break from coursework and found this adorable baby picture of My Nemo from eight years ago when he was just five weeks old. He always loved his cold air ducts ❤

How animals grieve

Phoofie has always been odd. He made it a personal mission to clean pack members over the years if they were anywhere receptive or patient about humouring this quirk. When Nemo was very young, Phoofie attempted to clean the big guy’s face, and whether…

Job opening: Bird Chaser
