A Day in the Life of a Zookeeper

A Day in the Life of a Zookeeper
Ever wonder what its like to share your world with a bunch of crazy critters? Tune in to find out!

Groceries - the critters love when we go grocery shopping and the entry fills up with bags of stuff for them to check out.  Each of them has things that they love:

Emma - she will check the bags for toys and bones and she has no problem with helping herself to any toy you purchase - she takes it right out of the bag and plays with it still strapped to the cardboard.

Madison - she investigates each bag and in some cases takes things out of the bags.  I have yet to see her steal anything - she just loves the act of taking things out of the bag.

Clooney - he is a total grocery thief.  Top of his list - mushrooms.  Second - cookies (Fig Newtons are the favorite) and granola bars.  Clooney also likes shiny things so items with foil wrapping are fair game.  Lastly - he likes candy and will steal it - entire bags of it if you let him get that far.

Oliver - he is such an ornery kitty....he breaks into the butter box and helps himself to the sticks of butter.  He pierces packages of meat.  He seems to like to poke holes so even things he won't eat - still get the fang treatment - maybe he is part vampire?

Phoebe - she is a licker - anything cold - milk jug, ice cream carton, frozen anything - she licks it.

And my two eldest girls - they are fruit freaks.  Zoey loves cantaloupe and any kind of berry.  Aggie is a berry fan as well.  In fact - they both love berries so much they rub on the plastic box they come in trying to break in.  Interesting thing is they have no desire to eat them - I have offered - they have passed.  Here is a shot of Zoey loving on the strawberries.  Not sure what that is about:
