Princess Emily of Sillybabytown, USA chose us to be her employees in the fall of 2020, along with her littermate Grover, also of Sillybabytown, USA, but not of royal blood, despite being Princess Emily’s brother.


Nobody knows how royalty works in Sillybabytown, USA, for they are too busy being silly and rolling around and chasing and butt-licking to deal with such things. They have important businesses to tend to!

They chose us when they were a mere 4 months old. Sadly, Grover passed away 15 months later with some sort of illness that gave him a persistent fever and no appetite nor ability to pass food. No blockage was found, and they were never able to determine just what was wrong with the sweet boy.


Emily, despite being a tiny female with extra toe beans and weird eyes, survives to this day, tormenting her male employee (me) nightly by stabbing me in the back to wake me up, usually between 3 and 4 a.m. because she wants her crunchies.

Then she does again within the hour because she wants to be poked with a stick in the toy tunnel as her step-brother Griffin (of Orange) watches from his executive chair! This is what it has come to, and we’re happy to work for them.
