Pet Peeves - 2015 Editions

I have decided to resurrect the Pet Peeves posts for this year because lets face it - there are some pretty annoying things that happen when you live with twelve critters...

1.  Posting about pet peeves at 6:30 am on my last day of vacation courtesy of Oliver.  He is not a fan of being shut out of bedroom at night so he breaks in by sliding the room divider and hopping over the gate.  This annoys me for a couple of reasons - first I worry that we will have a ferret escape with the room divider out of place and second - Oliver is just obnoxious when he gets in our room getting onto and into things he shouldn't.  So - as a result I am up incredibly early.

2.  New and improved ways to get into trouble by Mr. Piglet.  He is so smart that he discovers new and annoying ways to get into trouble.  Lately he has decided that it is a necessity to splash water ALL OVER the kitchen by shoving his water dish.  This makes the kitchen rugs quite soggy...  Additionally he is now obsessed with the gate that keeps him downstairs - he is quite strong so we are having issues with keeping it closed.  So frustrating....

Of course - as I type this both Oliver and Winston are curled up sleeping angelically now that I am awake... sigh!
