Caleb gets Crabby

June 14: The family’s first pets have taken up residence in Caleb’s new bedroom; after a bit of campaigning, and a little inspiration from Pokemon, Caleb took a couple of ‘Crazy Crabs’ home from the pet shop today. They’ve been named after their Pokemon counterparts – ‘Krabby’ and ‘Kingler’ (Krabby is the smaller one, and has already told Caleb what he thinks of being mis-handled. Caleb has learned what those ‘big hands’ are for….). They’re enjoying their time up on the third shelf, and the girls have overcome their initial misgivings to somehow find a way to dump half the crab’s food supply in with them.
