Weekend Overview

It was a fairly uneventful weekend at the zoo...the critters are all well - safe and sound out of the cold weather and seemingly healthy.  This weather is for the birds.  Cold, rain, freezing rain - really we are VERY ready for spring.

Emma had a bit of outside time with a 5 mile walk yesterday but today she opted to stay home under the bed rather than walk in the rain.  Winston has had no outside time because it has been way too cold and way too mucky outside.  We have been trying to give him some inside exercise by using his pig bowling ball - he will spend hours pushing that thing around - so long as there is pig food in there he will play with it.

The kitties are doing well - Oliver's squinty eye is fully healed and back to normal.  The girls are as lazy as ever.  The ferrets are also doing just great.  Today Harlow and Maddie were playing like crazy.  Kai is still nippy - working on it and he is getting better...oh little boy ferrets are especially bitey.  Tabitha nips at the hubs but never at me for some reason.  Theo is my lovey boy - so sweet and gentle.

All in all we left February and started March with little hooplah.  I can't believe it's time for the work week to start all over again.  Weekends are too short!
