Week in Review

Whew - we made it to Friday - it was a short work week that felt like it was 100 years long.  It was a pretty good critter week around here...

Winston had a good week - he was a pretty well behaved piglet for the bulk of the week.  He is happy that we are back to a normal cadence and spends his days playing and snoozing....the rough life of a pig.

Emma had a good week as well - no inclement weather driving her under the bed.  She spends a lot of time playing and arguing with the piglet - they are funny to watch.  She is a good girl for the most part...

The ferrets are all doing fantastic.  They spent their week playing and snoozing and the all seem quite happy and healthy.  The 50 foot tunnel is still a big hit and gets used multiple times each day. Wednesday was flea and tick medicine application day.  The ferrets REALLY hate this except for Tabitha who did not seem to care.  They are protected for another month so a few seconds of discomfort is worth it.

Kitties also go flea and tick meds - but they don't care so much when you put it on.  They are doing quite well.  We went through quite a pukey period for some reason - all three of my thyroid kitties were effected.  Not sure if there was a mild bug they shared or if maybe the vial of thyroid medication wasn't full strength but what ever was going on has resolved itself and we have been good to go - thank goodness.  I hate it when my babies are sick and let's be honest - its messy to clean up as well.

All in all - it was a pretty good week for the humans and the critters.  Looking forward to the weekend!
