You Know Its A Good Critter Weekend When....

1.  The dog is sacked out by 8 pm because she has been on 2 back to back 8 mile walks.
2.  The pig smells like a giant coconut because he has been outside so much he needs multiple applications of sunscreen.
3.  The seven ferrets in the general population all seem to be quite happy and show no signs of illness - even though Theo did have one icky output on Friday night that made me panic.
4.  The little baby ferret Harlow - while still sequestered from her siblings - seems to be holding her own.  She hasn't gained much weight - but she hasn't lost any either.  She is eating quite well, showing no side effects from her new medication and was caught in the act of playing and investigating several times this weekend.
5.  The kitties all seem to be doing just great - no hairballs, no thyroid related symptoms - just happy, LAZY kitties.

All in all this weekend was good.  While there is constant worry about Harlow and how she is doing and feeling - she seems to be a fairly happy and content little critter.  So far so good.

It's already time to head back to work tomorrow.  This week is full of busy days..... weekends are just too short!
