Pen - itentiary
Since we went on our weekend trip he has been much more interested in staying downstairs so I think we will try changing up our routine a bit.
Current routine looks something like this:
Piggy wake up between 3 - 6 am
Downstairs with pig - ferrets upstairs
Pig downstairs all day - upstairs around 5
Ferrets downstairs around 5 with free run until the morning
Rinse and repeat
I think we till change it up a bit to something like this:
Before we go to bed - ferrets upstairs and piglet downstairs
Piggy downstairs for the night - I will move his bed I think
Piggy downstairs for the day until around 3
Pig upstairs and ferrets downstairs from around 3 - 10 or so which should give them ample time to run off some energy and play
Last night we sort of did this - I let him downstairs around midnight. Once I got to sleep it was nice to sleep straight through until the morning until the alarm. We will see how it goes - would be great to get the pen out of our room and the ferrets seem quite content in there - even with free run of the house they spend all their time in there with us anyway. We have the downstairs camera set up so I can look in on them when I have to be in the office - I may set up the other two so we can check on Winston during the night without having to get up - ahhhhh - technology!
