My brother and my cousin found four or five (they weren’t sure) kittens on our road. Sometimes people leave kittens on roads when they don’t want them. 😦 We tried to get all the kittens but they were scared and ran off. We looked for hours and hours but we only caught 2.
Once we held them, they were happy and nice. They were hungry so we fed them fish we had. My friend Vanessa helped me take care of the kittens.
We made them a home in my dog Clydes crate but let them out a lot.
We all went out the next day and tried to find the other kittens, but we couldn’t. 😦 I hope they are okay.
I played with the kittens. We had then for a week and took care of them.
My mom posted the kitten’s pictures on Facebook and someone wanted to adopt them. It was my aunt who lives three hours away. My grandparents said they’d drive the kittens to their new home and I got to go with them!
I am glad we saved two kittens. I am sad we didn’t get the others. I am really sad someone would leave them on a road with nobody to help them!
I got to ride on a pony for my friends birthday. I had to wait my turn.
The ponys name was Gypsy. It was a bumpy ride. I want to ride a horse again! 🙂
I got a butterfly growing kit for my birthday. We got caterpillars in the mail.
They were black and little. Do you think they are little? I wrote in my notebook every day. I measured them and drew pictures of them.
Then the caterpillars grew big.
Then they hung from the top of their cage.
I took them out. They were stuck to the paper. They were all in chrysalis’.
Then I pinned them to their new cage.
THEN THEY HATCHED! One did not hatch. It died 😦
I put flowers inside the cage with sugar-water on them for the butterflies to eat (don’t drink it).
Then I let them go.
I got to hold them when I let them go. Bye bye butterflies! 🙂
I went to the bookstore to learn about turtles. I got to pretend to be a turtle (you can’t see me behind the green shell)!
I learned to draw a turtle and I got my picture signed. Here is my picture! :s
My friends went skiing and I got to pet-sit their pets.
I got to pet sit Basil the Guinea Pig. He made a lot of noise. He always pushed his food bowl over but he was very cute. We put his cage near Smokey‘s so he would have a friend.
I also got to pet-sit two hermit crabs. They took a lot of work. I had to spray their tank to keep water in it. There was a dial to show if it needed more water. The hermit crabs liked to sit in their food bowl.
My friends brought me maple syrup home for watching their pets. I hope I get to do it again! 🙂
I have a pet chinchilla named Smokey. He lets me hold him and he likes to jump on me. I feed him timothy hay and raisins for treats. Isn’t Smokey cute?
Chinchillas are from South America. They live in the mountains. Smokey is nice and he likes people and he likes you to hold him.
