Sam and Frodo are brothers, but we got Gizmo only a month ago, so I don't know about him. He was in the paper....we are his third, but forever, home. Him and Frodo aren't the best of friends...they're still going through the domineering phase, but no blood, no poopy, no foul to paraphrase Kim Schilling!
LOL....Ikea flooring. We might just do the whole house in it....we currently have berber carpet, and I am sure you are experienced in the "scratch-scratch-scratch-pull-and-destroy-carpeting-game".
I am a member of another forum as well...Ferret City. They are an awesome bunch over there.
