Oh animales, how I love thee, let me count the ways:
2: Escape attempts, caused by
1: Very large, evil cat, that almost killed the dog (this is not the cat I'm looking after, she is nice, this one was the spawn of the devil).
23 hours per day: The amount of time the cat spends purring. Yes this includes when it is right next to my ear at night
0: The number of times the dog has to pee when I am at work for eight hours
1 or 2: The number of times the dog has to pee at night when I am sleeping for eight hours.
0.03: The number of milliseconds it took the cat to jump out of the tub when I turned the shower on.
