"Sprout some wheatgrass for me or at least let me out in the back yard!"
- da boo

da Boo loves raw food recipes!...mainly freshly picked grass and catnip served ala carte.

Summer can be a little hot for da Boo! He stays where it's cool on the lowest levels! I can sleep until the Fall.

Lemon Grass from the herb garden is da boo's latest delicacy. He prefer's to hang out there and guard the plants now.
