beakertrout: Beaker knows that I keep a STARBURST in my pocket to warm it up and make it soft. He lights up when he sees me reaching in my pocket. He only gets a piece of it. He inhales it. Aug 26, 2019 7:52:27 GMT -7

susan: Sid hears the rustling- all I hear is 'want some, want some, want some' that does not stop until I produce. Funny they are all the same. Aug 26, 2019 13:26:12 GMT -7

beakertrout: I got annoyed with Beaker beeping and peeping when I went out on the patio, so this time I came in and got him and took him with me. Cured that! HAHAHA I won one. Aug 26, 2019 18:04:13 GMT -7

chris: Ruby's the same with food. Some rustling noise and she's on you in a flash. If the fridge or microwave are engaged she's pinned her eyes on you and you have no chance to enjoy your snack in peace. AG's seem to really enjoy their food! Aug 27, 2019 5:06:50 GMT -7

Adele: Haha. That is hilarious about Ruby, and Beaker!! They are too smart for their own good and love to manipulate us into giving them what they want. Aug 30, 2019 13:59:34 GMT -7

susan: Sometimes the noises I hear from the cage are unsettling, Sid is 'killing' one of his toys which is good but there is growling, hissing, and cackling like a chicken all aimed at that toy. Better that piece of wood and cardboard than my furniture or me. Aug 31, 2019 11:25:12 GMT -7

Adele: Haha!!! We would sometimes wait for my dad to leave, then sneak food into napkins. Once my mom found a pocket full of veggies in my little brother's pants when she was doing laundry. It was pretty funny and even she laughed! Sept 17, 2019 19:51:04 GMT -7
