    I’ve had Carolina Wrens and House Sparrows in my library, plus some bunnies were stored in my office one afternoon. Oh, and chicks. And puppies. In my office. Does any of that count as shenanigans?

    I would say those are definitely shenanigans! The question is, are they shenanigans perpetrated by staff, or shenanigans perpetrated by animals? And, do you have any pictures?
