Hi there humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this. This is Joshua the degu.
Guess what I just found out? The Mummy human says there won't be a "Furkid Friday" post next week! She says we'll be back to our usual schedule the week after, but she has something planned for that weekend, so has decided not to have us do a post next Friday, since she'll be posting something else.
On Mollie's birthday week too!
You know the worst part? It's all about some battle that happened 950 years ago! How is that more important than letting our chinchilla sister, Mollie, post about having her very first birthday? I mean, the battle happened years ago. Yeah, it's kind of interesting. But not as interesting as we are.
Sure, the Mummy human says she'll post a birthday message for Mollie on her actual birthday - which is Wednesday, by the way - and Mollie will get to do her birthday post the following Friday. But that's totally not the point, and I do not approve!
Mollie says it's perfectly fine, as long as she gets the special birthday nibble the human caretakers have promised her on her birthday, and doesn't have to wait for that. The Mummy human has promised she won't have to wait for her special nibble, so she's not complaining. I am, however, because I happen to think we should be more important than anything else... Especially things that happened so long ago even the human caretakers weren't born yet, and especially considering the human caretakers should be making even more effort than usual to make us feel special after we lost our brother, Jenks, a couple of weeks ago.
So, please don't blame us rodent types for the missing post next Friday... It's the humans' fault!
