My boys just proved to me -three times- that they're smart little buggers.

First was earlier, I decided to give them a shoebox per level that my roommate was tossing. They were the kind with the hinged lids, so when I put them in they closed and they couldn't get it. So I tilted them to the side and used their igloo to prop it open. Mommy's thinking she's pretty clever... until Jack and Puck knock the igloo aside instantly and can't get into their box. And then, not five minutes later, Jack gets his nose into the hinge, and Puck nudges the igloo... and it's propped open, just like it had been before. Sheesh.

Then, I got these stacking shelves and put them in the cage, but didn't put anything in them just yet. I went upstairs and came back down to find one or more of the four boys had pushed their igloo into the bottom shelf where it fit perfectly.

And then, as I'm trying to give out veggies, Puck is climbing out of the bottom cage, along the top of the door, up, and into the top cage. He did this four times. Guess he wants to go play with the other boys! :D

Here's hoping that when I go downstairs they haven't developed a flux capacitor. 8O

Sometimes I think they are a little too smart...with their beady little eyes always looking at me outside of their cage. What are they planning? Every time I open the cage I think "Is this it? Is then when they'll make their move?"

I don't trust them.

my girls can get into anything they want, it might take them a while and a few attempts but they are smart. TOO smart sometimes, and perhaps a little evil.

mine remind me completely of pinky and the brain. piggle is pinky, and lulu is the brain, if it was up to piggle she would eat and sleep all day, if it was up to lulu she'd escape from her cage and take over the world. God i miss that show :(

OMG you are made of WIN!

As you all know humans are only the third smartest animals on the planet, superceded by dolphins and mice. I guess they messed up on the mice part and it was supposed to be rats...lol

Squirrels. All we really are is squirrels.
We're cute and harmless - we are squirrels.
Peace loving herbivores. We're squirrels.

We like to gather nuts, but people splatter our guts.
When you're on a country drive it isn't easy to survive.

Don't kill us squirrels. All we really are is squirrels.
Peace loving herbivores. We're squirrels.

Squirrels. We're not delicious
Squirrels. We are not racoons
Squirrels. Don't live in Palm trees.
Squirrels. Or in your bathroom.

Squirrels. All we really are is squirrels.
We're cute and harmless - we are Squirrels.
Peace loving herbivores. We're Squirrels.
:lol:

We do! Or at least I do... :roll:

My Una knows how to open her travel box and all of mine know if I have something I'm going to give to them even before I say anything!

I swear they could really rule the world if they wanted to!!
