Holiday Time

Holiday prep is in full swing here at the zoo - it should be interesting over the next few days to see how it goes - especially with the piglet.

Emma is going to take a trip to hang out with her BFF Quincy for a few days.  She will leave tonight and we will pick her up on Christmas morning.  She loves hanging out with Quincy and gets spoiled by her grandparents in the process.  I figured that since many of our friends had never met Winston - he will likely be the center of attention and I didn't want her to be jealous.  Additionally - she is just noisy - barking at the doorbell and such.  So - off to Grandma's she goes.

Ferrets will be on lock down in their upstairs rooms - they don't have to be on lockdown in our room but they definitely will be kept upstairs - lots of feet and little ferrets don't mix.  Kitties will go upstairs as well - Oliver loves parties but I think we will put them in with the ferrets as well just so we don't have any escapes.  Phoebe and Aggie hate parties so they will be happy to have a place to hide.

And then there is Winston.  He will hang out in the guest room with his food and water and potty spot for part of the party - we need to give folks a chance to eat without the crazy boy around.  At some point we will let him down.  He has been around a few people at a  time but never this many at once so it should be an adventure seeing how he behaves.

Wish me luck....  :)
