Description

From the author of Fowl Weather comes "a laugh-out-loud chronicle" of household pets who slowly but surely overrun the house (Marty Becker, DVM, Good Morning America).When Bob Tarte and his wife Linda brought a rabbit into their rural Michigan home, they didn't anticipate how it might upset their tranquil lives. But even after the bunny chewed through their electrical wiring, their household menagerie kept growing. Soon, Bob found himself constructing cages, buying feed, clearing duck waste, and spoon-feeding an assortment of furry and feathery residents. He unwittingly became a servant to a relentlessly demanding family. "They dumbfounded him, controlled and teased him, took their share of his flesh, [and] stole his heart" (Kirkus Reviews).In this loving memoir of the joy and madness of living with animals, Bob offers "dead-on character portraits, [and] keeps readers laughing about unreliable pet store proprietors, a duck named Hector who doesn't like water, an amorous dove named Howard, a foster-mother goose, patient veterinarians and increasingly bewildered friends" (Publishers Weekly).
