A Day in the Life of a Zookeeper
Ever wonder what its like to share your world with a bunch of crazy critters? Tune in to find out!

We have had those little baby ferrets for 22 days.  This means we are likely in the clear for ECE for the other ferrets - its typically a 21 day thing.  Woohoo!  Additionally - we have had a chance to get to know them a bit and learn more about their personalities.

Let's start with Harlow.  She is so sweet!  She is a very mellow and go with the flow kind of girl - much like Madison.  Harlow is a bit shy - she loves to play with toys and she and Tabitha can often be found wrestling and playing.  She is happy hanging out with the gang or off by herself.  She is such a cutie.

Tabitha is much like Violet in that she is quite independent.  Tabitha is quite fun - gets very excited when she is playing and is good and keeping up with the boys is no challenge for her.  She is not a huge fan of being held and loved on - also much like Violet.  She is obsessed with water - she gets drenched in the shower and is not afraid to join me in the tub.  She has quite the personality!

Lastly - the wild and crazy Kai.  He is so gregarious and outgoing.  He is a leaper, jumping at everything and everyone.  Kai is fearless - jumps from high up spots without a thought.  He also loves water and when I am in the tub he joins me - sitting on my stomach splashing and playing.  He is the inspector - looking up your nose like Finn used to do - but with much more GUSTO!  Kai truly has two modes - sleeping and wild.  He is a very sweet and very affectionate ferret.

The three elder ferrets are loving having the babies around and the 6 of them get along quite well.  Bringing these new guys into the family has gone well and we adore the whole business...
