What's New at the Zoo??

In a word - nada....

Nigel's toes are all good - he is running on his wheel and is no worse for the wear it seems.  He has been spending his days with me outside his cage sleeping and he seems to be doing great.  Whew!

Madison is her wild and crazy self.  She continues to grow - I think she will be bigger than Clooney.  She loves Oliver to pieces, plays like a wild child and is starting to like getting loves and pets.  She seems to be doing fantastic.  Since I have had her for 63 days I was able to enroll her on the insurance policy earlier this week.  The first 60 days you are on your own so the insurance company can feel good that you didn't get a sickly little creature.  So far she seems very healthy and the vet has actually seen her while she was boarding.....not an official appointment but if there was something funky going on they would have seen it.

Clooney is doing well.  He seems completely over his virus episode and is active and interactive.  He hangs out with us regularly.  He still chases Madison and tries to bully her but now that she is almost the same size as he is the "fight" often ends in him running away because Madison gives him a piece of her mind.  I am happy that he seems to be out of his funk and appears to be a content little guy once again.

Kitties - Not much to report here - kitties are all doing well.  They are loving the spring weather and the fact that we have had the windows wide open for days.

Emma - The pup extraordinaire seems to be doing well.  She has enjoyed some walks and play time outside.  Still not loving the camera - she is a bit neurotic.  All in all she seems to be doing great as well.

So - long story short - not much to report here.  With 8 critters - no news is good news.....
