Exploring The Great Indoors

What I’ve been up to.

I have been really busy lately during the one hour a day I am not asleep writing draft articles for National Domestigraphic. Other than that, I’ve been expanding my poking the animals for responses, but have only the following worthy to report.

Poking the midget wolf

I was hesitant at first, but mustered the courage to poke the midget wolf, which Ken identifies alternately as “Lady”, “Bug”, and “Dog.” She paid no attention, but my persistence over a few minutes made the wolf release a low, gurgling, growling noise, like the rolling “R” sound of a old hispanic woman with a very sore throat. Who can’t breathe.

At that point my instincts told me it was time to move on.

I pursued a number of the smallcats, as you can see in the image below. This individual is known in the preserve as “Lydia”, although I call her “Black-Poofy-Female-With-Attitude-And-Sharp-Teeth.” The image after that conveys a result emblematic of such efforts.

However, with the help of Ken, I have devised a way to sneak up on my subjects and observe or poke them at will. More on this later.
