The State of the Business - a 6 Ferret Update

My crazy ferret brood is doing so great - I am very pleased!  Violet and Madison - the eldest girls are doing just great - they are part of the shenanigans at times but also content to be off by themselves where it is a bit less rambunctious.  They have totally accepted the new babies and they truly are one big happy family.

Kai and Theo are wild boys - they adore each other and are pretty much inseparable.  Where one goes the other is close to follow.  The two play so rough and really love hanging out together....  Healthwise the two are doing fantastic - healthy appetites and outputs and both are at a perfect weight.

Harlow and Tabby are amazing!  They are playful and engaged and seem to be fully settled in.  Harlow is much less timid and he personality is starting to shine through.  She is still a very mellow and sweet ferret but she is starting to play and is much less frightened by the humans and their noises.  Tabs is just about one of the boys - by far the most rough and tumble of the girls.  Both of these babies love their toys.  Their health is also great - no issues to report.

I am hoping that between today and tomorrow I can work on the junk/craft/ferret playroom and get their play area set up - I am excited for them to have it.  Sadly there is alot of work to get there so I will need to catch a motivation bug for that to happen - wish me luck....
