The Month in Review

Can you believe its the end of May already? Let's recap the critter month...

Nigel - we left him for a long weekend this month - his first time without me. All in all he did well. He struggled with skin issues and had to take antibiotics for a week - he was very good about taking them for me and they seem to have worked. And - he has gotten somewhat used to getting his toes cut. Pretty busy month for this little guy.

Clooney found himself in all sorts of mischief - as I type this he is wrestling with Oliver making his little happy noise. They say that male ferrets get more and more affectionate as they get older. I think this is true - he loves to be held and petted more and more each day. Ferret owners are always happy to have a quiet ferret month! :)

Phoebe has continued in her naughty phase - pushing the boundaries as much as she can to see what the consequences will be. I should clarify that her levels of naughty are relative to her and don't hold a candle to some other boy kitty who shall remain nameless.

Oliver my ornery boy - he didn't let me down this month. He is my cute boy - lucky for him. Some days that is the only thing that saves him. That and the fact that he is so darn sweet. He is so affectionate. It was a pretty run of the mill month for the boy.

Emma - she had a busy month. She stayed with my parents while we were away. She had many play dates with my parents dog Quincy. She spent a good bit of time outdoors - which normally she hates - while I did yard work.

Zoey has pretty much spent the month doing what she does which is lounging about with occasional bursts of playtime. Not much to report here...

Agatha - she continues to want to interface with us more and more which we love. Pretty uneventful month for her as well.

When you have 7 critters - uneventful months are all good - we will take them!
