Good morning Handy, hope the little shredders are behaving themselves most of the time...
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:49am Handy Haversack:

Well, so far, the music has driven Goblin and Bugbear into a furious violent chase around the apartment, menacing the plant and each other. But I rather suspect the same might have happened no matter what was on the radio!

Will, they go from this sort of blade whirlwind phase to intense cuddling in a matter of nanoseconds! They have also discovered looking out the window (and Goblin discovered climbing the curtains).
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:51am Will the Sound Guy:

It's a Kitty be kitty world in there..
