Injury Obsession

It amazes me that the critters are so in tune with the humans in the household.  A few days ago when I was out for our daily walk I managed to get a giant blister on my foot.  The next day I was sitting on the couch and Winston came up and popped it with his snout.  Ouch!  He is totally obsessed with it now - he checks it multiple times a day.  The ferrets are obsessed with it as well and I get frequent inspections.

Yesterday Bash accidentally scratched my eyelid (the dangers of having critters) and it left a mark - they are constantly monitoring that as well - how do they know?  They are funny - if we have to wear anything like a bandaid or an ace bandage they are adamant about trying to take it off.  The only thing allowed is a ring and sometimes they bite on that as well and Kai does nose and ear inspections on a regular basis.  Silly little furry doctors....
