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!

Sunday, November 15, 2015


Today we had lots of visitors - two different sets.  Visitors are received differently by the different critters....


Aggie and Phoebe aren't big on visitors.  They will hide out - under the bed, in the closet, etc.  They did come out for the a bit and Aggie actually let a stranger touch her.  That is almost unheard of!  Zoey is indifferent to visitors so long as they don't bug her.  Then there is Oliver who must be the center of attention at all times no matter what.


The ferrets love visitors - all of them!  They are very social and they love it when new people come over.  They are happy to be held, scratched, etc and they climb all over guests.  Prepare to be loved on if you come for a visit!


Emma likes visitors but she is quite noisy when they first arrive - barking like a crazy dog.  Once they get in the door she settles down.  She likes when people are around and often tries to get extra pets and attention from guests.


Well - he is still a big pink turd.... he did not do great with visitors today.  For the most part we didn't give him the opportunity to interface with them but we did have one person who wanted to meet him. Winston was nice while our visitor was giving him cookies but once those ran out - he tried to bite - turd....he got in big trouble and went to his bed....sigh

It's been a busy day for them and for the humans....ready to relax and take it easy for the rest of the evening.
