It's All Relative
I will be caring for Camille's critters for a few days and went down yesterday to get an update on their schedules: who gets what, when, and where every morning (another gal has evening chores). Dry food, canned food, treats and water for the cats. Seeded, chunked-up apples (one-half each) for the donkeys. Senior pellets for Cricket, hay pellets for Shadow, and a split flake of alfalfa between the two. Scratch and mash for the chickens. Honey will be staying with friends, and the alpacas are no longer in residence. My animals would feel absolutely neglected if I told them about the special treatment Cam's kids get, so I won't tell them. It's all relative.
Speaking of relatives, today is my son Dave's birthday, and tomorrow my daughter and son from another mother are coming up. That's the best kind of relativity.
