Leave the baby alone....

Geez - another phrase I say about 42 times a day - "Leave the baby alone".  Clooney is the main receiver of this command as he is always trying to engage Nigel who some days is more receptive than others.  Oliver is next - he wants to play and proceeds to steal the covers off the top of the critter - Nigel does not care for this on any day.  Then the rest of the kitties - they want to lay on his blankets and have little regard for the hedgehog - flopping down, sometimes right on top of the baby.  Sigh....  Emma rarely has to be told - she is very careful around the little guy.

Once he is up and going - Nigel actually has little regard for the other critters - he will run right over the top of whomever is in the way - the reactions to that are pretty entertaining - ranging from disgust to excitement....
