Now that summer has arrived, our home has become something of a halfway house for wayward critters. They can’t stay at the school, and we can’t kick them out on the street, so the only thing we can do in good conscience is invite them in.
Johnny Weissmuller, a Red-Eared Slider turtle
Mr. Heatmiser, a Fire-Bellied Toad
A pair of Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches named Paul & Ringo (there were four, but John & George both died)
A couple of always exciting Hermit Crabs, Sonny & Cher
And Dory, a male Betta – not pictured. He’s pretty camera shy, probably because he was named after Ellen DeGeneres. But that’s just a guess.
