This is Smo (usuall pronounced schmoe) Kateri's Guinea
Pig (Cavy). This was in October 1996 when she was just a little rodent.
She's just as cute now but a lot bigger.
Smo in June 1997. These pictures were part of Kateri's science fair
project, which showed how Smo could learn to negotiate a a maze, which
she learned in 10 minutes.
Jim, Marieke and her friend Rocky try to take out Notorious B.I.G., our
1998 Christmas tree. Jan-Luc and Kateri picked it out and insisted the
bigger the tree the better the Christmas. It had a 6 inch diameter trunk
and took up half the living room. We had to hack it into pieces to get
it out. It WAS a good Christmas.
