Assignment 4


Dear furry friends,

Life Among Giants means confusing costumes.

As I mentioned in my last post, humans celebrate everything. And today they are celebrating the dead…by dressing up in costumes. If I were to dress up I’d go as a hurricane, because hurricanes scare the furballs out of me. Yesterday (Hurricane Sandy’s reign of terror) was a literal nightmare in my life. And isn’t that what Halloween is supposed to be about? Fear?

Anyway, Jils went as the least scary thing that ever existed – a bunny. And she didn’t even look anything remotely like me. Continue reading

Dear furry friends,

Life among giants means celebrating everything

I have been living with Jils for about 4 months now. And so far, I have witness the humans celebrate:

  • Canada Day

    More loud noises from the humans

  • Jils’ Birthday

    View of Jils’ cake as I tried to hop into it

  • Jils’ Sister’s Birthday
  • Jil’s Mom’s Birthday
  • Labour Day (they all stayed home so it was extra loud in the house that day)
  • Mooncake Festival

Yesterday I heard Jils talking about celebrating Halloween. Another celebration? Hmm. Curious, I went on Jils’ computer and researched it and…

Assignment 2

Dear furry friends,

Life among giants mean loud noises. All the time.

The worse thing (besides finding my own poop in my hay) is being woken up by a hairdryer.

Today I woke up to the roar of Jils drying her hair. It was 7 o’clock in the morning. I spilled my water bottle yesterday and I had no problem letting my fur air dry. I don’t understand why she needs to do that 😦 She not only gets more precious sleepy time, but also save me many hairdryer induced nightmares (today I was being chased by a lawnmower driven by Rabbit from the Winnie the Pooh cartoons I love). To us small animals, even the slightest noises sound like horrible cacophonies of whining demons. But you have remember that to humans, this constant ratchet is second nature to them.

Assignment 1

Dear furry friends,

Life among humans means dealing with really confusing mood swings.

Jils is really upset today. She is crying and watching the telly about a big ship sinking and lots of humans dying.

I try to snuggle to comfort her, but she nudges me away.

“Not right now bun-face, I’m wearing shorts,” she says.

I don’t understand why. She usually loves my cuddles. I watch her for a bit. I love my human but she’s been really grumpy these few days. I dunno why. Humans are so weird. One day they are all happy and excitable, then grumpy and depressed the next. It’s so complicated. I poop on the floor. I try to cover it up so Jils won’t be mad, but she notices anyway. I hop away and watch from a distance as she cleans it. She doesn’t seem too mad but keeps mumbling something about having tummy cramps. Maybe that’s why she’s in such a grim mood. Continue reading
