What's Happening???

How about a general update on the zoo?  Things here are good.

Madison is doing well - running around like crazy and being a very happy girl.  She is very social and likes when visitors come by the house.  Nigel is doing great.  He passed his physical with flying colors last week.  He is also really enjoying the new tent setup.  The little guy loves outside and he has been exploring and napping on the deck each day.  Clooney is doing very well.  He went to the vet last week as well and is fine.  He is a little on the skinny side so I decided to give him his old cat food.  Low and behold he pigged out yesterday.  I think perhaps his weight loss is related to not liking the cat food all that much.  I have p ut the old food out for him and he has visited 4 or 5 times already.  There is nothing wrong with his appetite.

Kitties are well.  They are funny about the tent outside.  Zoey has no desire to go anywhere so I can let her out there and leave her, just checking on her every few minutes.  She lays out there happy and content for hours.  Oliver has figure out how to break out of the tent so he requires constant supervision.  I have been letting him play in the garage instead which is one of his favorite things.  He goes out there and lays on the cars - not sure why he likes that.  Aggie came outside once to check out the tent but then she heard the garbage truck so she ran for the safety of indoors.  Phoebe has not even ventured out there once.  She is a fraidy kitty when it comes to outside.

Emma dog is doing well.  She is happy her friend Quincy (my parents dog) is in town.  She has been spending some of her time under the bed as we have had rainy weather the last few days.  She kinda likes the tent but she is totally an inside dog so she doesn't want to hang out outside for very long.  Emma also had a quick check up when she was boarded last week - I thought she might have a touch of a urinary tract infection but thankfully she came back normal.

All in all things are pretty happy and healthy at the zoo!!!
