The Month in Review - June

Can you believe another month has passed us by?  Where does the time go?

June was a pretty uneventful critter month - we like that!

Nigel - he continues to do well - his skin issues appear to have gone away and we have started back on a bath routine - once every 3 weeks or so.  We continue to make progress on tameness and we are spending lots of time each day outside of the cage.

Clooney - the little ferret continues to entertain.  He becomes more and more affectionate each day spending time curled up with his humans getting pets.  He is such a sweet boy.  Nothing exciting (which with a ferret would equate to an emergency) to report for him this month.

Phoebe - she continues to be in her naughty phase - pushing the limits to see how far she can go.  I have noticed that she is becoming more of a lap cat - spending time laying on me each day.  She continues to try to be the boss of the house, playing lots with Oliver and Clooney and tattling on her other siblings.  Still no love for the Aggie cat - sigh - maybe someday.

Oliver - Mr Ornery did not disappoint this month - geez.  He does keep us on our toes.  He is affectionate in addition to ornery and he is so darn cute that you can't stay mad at him.  He has had a pretty good month.  No major time outs required.

Zoey - she seems to have gotten past her extreme clingy phase from last month - thank goodness.  She is spending lots of time with us but not requiring being on us - its all good.

Aggie - continues to engage more and more with us and the other critters.  She is doing very well - no complaints here.

And last but certainly not least - the Divine Miss Em - she has had a busy month.  She sadly said goodbye to Quincy my parents dog as they hit the road in their RV.  She has spent a good bit of time outside this month - playing on the porch with her siblings, playing in the yard with a toy, etc.  She is still doing well with not running off - we will keep working on it.

Healthy and happy - that's the way we like it around here.  I can't believe we are heading into July - CRAZY!!!
