Our Sensitive Babies

My little one's are so in tune with the humans in their lives.  They really pick up on any sort of stress in the household.  They are also very intuitive when their humans are not feeling well.

Phoebe is very sensitive to loud, animated conversations.  She assumes she is in trouble and runs and hides.  Clooney flops down on the floor in pout mode when he thinks he is in trouble.  All of them kind of keep their distance if they sense that one of us is angry.

If we are sick - that's a different story.  They are all right there - glued to you.  This is actually quite comforting - except in the case of Clooney - whom we have to be very careful with as he can actually catch flu and cold from us so there is no ferret loves when one of us is under the weather.  Thankfully - neither of us get sick very often so its not a major issue.

Its interesting to watch them respond to the tone in the household.....
