BROWNIE BEATRIX SQUIGGLY (the big one) joined the FML family in the spring of 2011. The new babies arrived in July of 2015 and are named CINNAMON SUGAR PANCAKE (the brown one) and COCONUT MARSHMALLOW CUPCAKE (the white and tan one).

They are all girls and like to snack on all sorts of healthy things like Italian parsley, green beans, dark lettuce, spinach, carrots and carrot tops, and apples that people bring them. Please no celery or peppers.
