A Day in the Life of a Zookeeper

A Day in the Life of a Zookeeper
Ever wonder what its like to share your world with a bunch of crazy critters? Tune in to find out!

Spring has brought not only an icky coating of pollen but some very loud and crazy thunderstorms.  Last night we had a bunch of nervous nellies around here:

Of course Emma was freaked out - she spent all evening under the guest room bed and she was so scared that when we went to bed she wouldn't even switch rooms so she ended up sleeping in there as well.  She is happier this morning with the sun out for sure!

Winston wasn't a fan of the storms either and he spent the evening under  multiple layers of covers in his bed. He did not seem particularly scared but just a bit uncomfortable.  He is full of energy this morning wreaking havoc by getting in the garbage and pushing furniture around.

The ferrets tend to be sleepy when its rainy - but Harlow was up and quite frightened by the thunder - it would crash and she would run and hide behind the dresser.  Then when it was quiet she would run and get in my lap.  Fiona was also up and she just wanted to be held the whole time.

Zoey and Aggie are old pros - neither one cared much about the storm - Ollie and Phoebe on the other hand - under the bed with Emma.  Oliver in particular was quite unhappy.

All in all we fared the storms just fine.  Emma and Winston have been out exploring for their morning potty. Unfortunately - we are in for more storms this evening so it might be a repeat of last night.
