It's Been a Few Days...

I haven't blogged for a few days.  Things have been busy for the humans but mostly its because things have been pretty status quo.  I am actually quite thankful for a few easy, uneventful days.  So what has been happening around here?

Well - Emma has been enjoying daily 5 mile jaunts with the humans.  We logged over 40 miles last week!  With the exception of her continued, somewhat obsessive carpet scratching she has been pretty well behaved.

Winston has been doing great and he has been a well behaved pig.  He is quite engaged and seems happy.  We will be going for a piglet outing this weekend so he can burn off some energy.  I also ordered him an agility kit.  He loves to learn new things so we will give that a whirl.  I think Emma will like it as well.

Kitties are well - hanging out in all stages of laziness.  They have been enjoying our spring weather - laying in the sun and hanging out in the open window sills.  They all seem to be doing well.  Ollie, Zoey and Aggie spend the sleeping hours downstairs and Phoebe typically bunks with us.  She is fairly easy going and not a bed hog.  Her worst habit is "styling" her hair with her teeth and tongue.

Ferrets are just great - happy and active.  Kai continues to settle down bit by bit - he is becoming quite affectionate and frequently dishes out kisses.  He and Theo have been up to mischief as usual.  The girls are doing well - playing and hanging out.  I love that they seem to pair up in different combinations.  No favorites it seems.  This morning Maddie and Harlow were playing and Vi and Tabby were sacked out behind the TV cabinet.  Later in the day Maddie and Tabby were curled up on the bed and Violet and Harlow were sharing the dresser drawer.  They truly are one big, integrated family.

Other than status quo not a lot to report.  The new vacuum arrived and I love it!  I found sweet potato fry dog treats that both the pig and the dog are crazy about and I decided to switch back to pine litter from pine bedding.  Even though the bedding is cheaper and works well - wow - is it messy.
