Critter Weekend Recap

It was a fairly uneventful weekend here in critter land.  Emma went for 2 very long and very cold walks with the humans.  Winston went on one very long piggy stroll around grandmas place on Saturday.

The kitties are all well - causing trouble - wanting to have constant lap time which at times is rather inconvenient.  The ferrets are good - lots of time spent playing with them this weekend in an effort to wear them out.  Sometimes it works and sometimes not so much.

The one spot of excitement we did have was a power outage on Saturday night.  50 mile per hour winds did a number on the power for lots of people.  We spent a bit of time brainstorming about how we would get the ferrets downstairs to the warmth of the fire if the outage was extended.  Thankfully it only lasted a couple of hours and the temperature inside the house never dropped so no action needed.  It's a good plan to have however - because we are expecting all sorts of crappy weather Monday/Tuesday of this week and I wouldn't be surprised if we have another outage.

This evening has been a bit challenging - I think the gang has a bit of cabin fever.  It's very cold and they are misbehaving for sure.  I think all the kitties but Aggie have been in trouble at some point this afternoon. Winston has quite frankly been a pain in the rump and Emma as well.  Not sure what the deal is but hopefully it is a short lived phase.

All in all - a pretty low key weekend.  This week all four kitties go to the vet...ugh - Zoey and the vet...should be interesting....
