They need feeding, clothing (I've resorted to using old curtains and magazines to make their clothes), exercising, mental stimulation - as we just couldn't cope if they became any more stupid - and bathing. Many of the younger Redshirts also need hand-rearing, but we've managed to rope Beaky and his extended family in to do that.
We also think that they're breeding somewhere as, despite all our care and attention, we keep finding dead Redshirts (in the tumble dryer, down the back of the sofa, behind the hot water tank, lodged up the chimney etc.) but their numbers never seem to diminish!
Look, we've got to go - I can hear them bickering about whose turn it is to wash the toaster and I don't think my sciatica can cope with digging yet another grave...
