Let's start with Harlow - she is a beautiful coppery, latte, creamy ferret - she is built similarly to Madison. She is very, very interested in toys and has already started to make a pile in the closet. Tabitha looks much like Violet did when Vi was a baby. She is creamy white in her under coat with gray, black and silver in her top coat. She is similar to Violet in that she doesn't love to be held and is pretty independent. Kai is a big crazy boy - he is the same creamy butterscotch color as Theo but his legs, a patch by his shoulders and his tail (all but the tip) are a darker brown. Kai is quite the leaper and he is obsessed with feet - he likes to stand on them and check out your toes.
Bringing them into the family has not been challenging at all - I think the gang is used to it now. The other ferrets were fine - there has been no squabbling and Violet settled in for a nap with the new babies shortly after they arrived. Ollie and Phoebe have already been playing with them, Emma has introduced herself and the babies are not afraid of either the dog or the cats. Zoey and Aggie are in denial that we even have ferrets....Winston doesn't get access to the ferrets - with his pokey hooves and his size I think its too dangerous for him to be around them - I am afraid he will step on them and injure them so we just have ferret land upstairs and piggy land downstairs and kitties and dog who float between the two.
All in all I am thrilled that Theo has a brother, that we kept the three together, that Maddie has new babies - she is the matriarch and that my husband is a saint. We are officially the Grant dozen - wow!
