Rachel gets Friends

Rachel will turn one month old next week and finally got some friends in her own species group.  Mind you these are not permanent friends, they’ll go back to their own home in a few months, but she doesn’t seem to mind. One friend even looks a bit like her, only our Rachel is WAY…

I told Addie to make her bed. I wonder where she plans on sleeping……. The catfish looks stressed out by all the new residents on the bed. Only a six-year-old. 🙂
