I have been working lots of hours due to the holidays. I depend on my family to help with the animals. Yesterday when I got off work I had to go straight to bed due to a migraine. After I woke in the evening I found that no one had made any supper which was then left to me to do. I also noticed the dogs had not been fed and watered. This morning I went out to let the chickens and ducks out and to feed and water them. The waterers were all muddy and hardly any water in them. The baby coops water was completely empty. I am so mad. So I made a new house rule and put it on the fridge. It states: You have to drink out of a dirty glass. You can not have a clean glass til I get around to washing one. That means If i have to work til after dark you can not have a clean glass til the next morning. If the tea pitcher runs out you can not have a drink even if that means you have to wait til the next morning. You can not have anything to eat til I get around to feeding you. You know I have more important things to do such as watching TV playing video games or surfing on the web. This is how you want to treat all the animals here so I guess that the same should apply to you. Remember if you are hungry or thirsty to can get a glass of water or make some food the animals cant so I guess they just have to suffer til I get home. So that being said you have to suffer right along with them because after all you are animals too just the human kind.
