Stories of the Day

There is not too much to share today really - the humans had a busy work day today and as a result the critters had to entertain themselves.

Kitties are all doing well - Zoey is shedding like crazy so its furry downstairs.  Aggie is my go with the flow girl - she spent some lap time with me this morning.  Oliver and Phoebe are hanging upstairs with us tonight - begging for people food.

Emma had a rough start to her day - we had quite the thunderstorm move through around 4 am.  She hid under the bed and didn't come out til almost 11.  The rest of her day was better - a short walk, lots of trips outside, playtime with Winston, cookies and now she is snoozing in the bedroom with us.

The ferrets are all doing well.  As I type the wild boys are up - Kai, Theo and Bash.  They have been playing and racing through their tunnel.  Madison and Violet are playing in the covers of our bed and Fiona and Tabby are wrestling in the bathtub.  I will give them their evening gravy in a bit.  Harlow is doing fantastic - after  busy day breaking out of her cage and taking flying leaps off the furniture she is snoozing - I need to head downstairs to give her some gravy and her medication.

And last but not least - Mr. Winston - days like today are tough on him - its hard for a piglet to be good while I talk on the phone for 6 hours of conference calls.  He had some outside time, cookies, lots of trips outside for potties and grass munching and lots of cookies.  Right now he is snoozing in his bed - he will get lovies and cookies when I go down to take care of Harlow and the kitties.

All in all an okay day - tomorrow is crazy busy again - so they will have more of the same - poor critters.....
