Cleaning Woes

So yesterday was cleaning day, only because it is trash pickup day.

Does this mean that I don't clean every day?

No... Not at all.

Anyone with several animals knows that you need to clean up more than once a week to have any semblance of order in your house.

So I clean often.

And I clean well.

And two minutes later, I have to do it over again, because the snake decides to tip the water dish, spread extra woodchips all over the place, or take a restroom break in the exact area that was just cleaned.

Now I say this to say what, exactly?

I am completely dedicated to my craft of poop cleaner.

I do it so often, that should be on my resume.

Am I proud of it? Not exactly... but I do it cause I love the animals.

Do I enjoy it?


No, I don't.

It gets frustrating, annoying and sometimes down right hard to deal with, but I have to say, it is for a good reason and for a good purpose.

I am writing this all out to convince myself, as well as you all out there in internet land, that cleaning poop is fun.

Is it working for you? Cause its not working for me.

It's not fun.

It's work.

But its necessary, and we do it for the health and benefit of the animals we care for.

And they may or may not appreciate it, but it is the way it needs to be.

So next time your snake tips over a water dish, smile and remember that you can fill up the water dish and know that it will happen again, no matter what you do. But do it anyway.

They really are not trying to get into your head. I think.

Have a fantastic day, my friends.

Ball pythons are very much like cats in a number of ways, have you noticed? One of which is the tendency to wait for a clean litter box before pooping.
