I didn't mention this before, what with everything else that was going on, but we acquired a rabbit and a guinea pig last week. Joe had been talking about getting a snake or a rottweiler and I figured we should head him off at the pass.
I was thinking small animals would be low maintenance. I was wrong.
The rabbit is Toshiro Mifunny the Bunny (aka Fluffbucket) and the guineapig is Mulan
