Hi there humans, rodent types, and anyone else reading this.
This is Jasper the degu.
The human caretakers say it's just one more week until Santa Paws comes, so my rodent siblings and I are working hard on a plan to catch him. We're hoping we'll finally do it this year.
There are eight of us, and we're all older and wiser than we were last year. At least, we say we are... The Mummy human says that, while she agrees on the older part, the wiser part is debatable. How rude! But, anyway, there are eight of us, and there's only one of him. Well, he has his reindeer, but I'm told they aren't involved in doing anything other than pulling the sleigh Santa Paws carries the toys and nibbles around the world in.
OK... There's only one way in or out of this place, unless Santa Paws wants to climb out of his sleigh while it's hovering outside the window, several floors up, which would be both stupid and dangerous. All our cages have a clear view of that entrance, so we're coming up with a plan to catch him as he comes in. As long as at least one of us stays awake, we should catch him this time, right?
I'm not going to share any more details of the plan on here, just in case he's reading this. But, we're sure it's a great one.
Wish us luck!
