A Good Saturday...

Today has been a delightful day - the weather is beautiful, I crossed some chores off the to do list, and the critters had a good day as well.

The ferrets were quite active - they are all feeling good and into mischief.  The hubs is unfortunately a bit under the weather - not sure if its a cold or just allergies but just to be safe he is steering clear and not having close contact with the weasels.  They were out and about for quite a bit of time today with little interest in the piglet. This evening as I type I can hear them downstairs harassing Oliver and having some dinner.

The kitties had a good day full of snoozing in the sun - they love that.  They all seem quite happy and healthy.  Zoey slept with me last night - she goes through phases where she is all about spending time with people and then she goes to the other side of the spectrum back to antisocial.

Emma is great - she had a good day today - weather was clear and she had her pal Winston to play with.  The only issue we seem to be having is that she has been flashed by the pen from Men in Black and she has forgotten everything she ever knew about being potty trained.  Sigh - just when we are making progress with Winston we are going backwards with the dog.  Fun times.

And that leaves the piglet - who - today was really quite good.  He did great with the litter box today. He was very obedient and good natured.  He and Emma did well while we were out running errands this afternoon and  when we came up to bed he went right in his without being asked and let me tuck him in.  Not sure what's up with him but I will take it.

Theo, Ollie and Phoebe - my seasonal allergy sufferers - have been sneezing like crazy the last two days along with the humans.  Not sure what has us all going but the critters got a shot of colloidal silver in their water today which for some reason always seems to help.

Tomorrow - perhaps more of the same  - chores and such.  Hopefully the hubs will be feeling fine and the piglet will have another awesome behavior day.  I love the weekend....
