Stories of the Day

Ahhh - the stories of the day - let's see....

Ferrets were up bright and early this morning.  We had some play time and they all willingly had a bit of colloidal silver and water to combat any allergy symptoms as they are really in full swing here.  Everyone is happy and seems to be in fantastic health - no signs of any viruses or icky things brought in by the new babies.  Phoebe also got a dose of silver - she is by far my worst allergy sufferer - poor kitty.

We headed downstairs for chores, work, etc.  Today was littler box cleanout day - fun times!  The pig box is getting used less and less as Winston is getting really good about putting on his harness and going outside to potty with Emma.  Emma had a bit of a stressful day as rain showers moved through and she decided hiding under the guest room bed was the way to go.

Kitties didn't accomplish much today - lots of lounging.  Winston is working on a new trick - I am trying to get him to take a plastic ring from me.  He gets it but is quite a stubborn little piggy.  A few more days and he will have it down pat.

Tonight will include tricks and treats for Winston and Emma, ear meds for the kitties, ferret play time, perhaps a bath which makes the ferrets happy - they love bath time - and then some rest for the humans.
