A Lovely Saturday

Today was a lovely Saturday.  The morning started as it always does with Winston.  He wakes up early and wants a cookie and a drink.  He gets closed in his smaller area and goes back to bed.  Then a few hours later he wakes again and asks for his breakfast.

Winston and Emma went outside to play.  I took care of the little critters.  The kitties were fine - happy and doing well this morning.  The ferrets we doing well too!  There were some questionable looking outputs that occurred overnight.  This is concerning for a couple of reasons.  First - someone might not be feeling well and second - with seven ferrets - its really hard to narrow it down to who is feeling bad.  The good news is that whomever was having issues seems to be fine because over the course of the day there have been no more concerning deposits.

Mid morning we took Emma and Winston for a walk down to the mailbox.  They did well and had fun.  Then Winston spent the bulk of the day outside rooting and sunbathing - he does love his outside time.

Everyone is inside now and napping.  Tonight there will be dinner - canned cat food for the kitties, gravy for the ferrets, pellets and maybe a lettuce ball for the piglet and good old Biljack for the dog. It's been a lovely day so far - looking forward to spending more time with them this evening!

PS - Winston likes fennel - he was a but unsure at first - I think he thought it was celery which he hates.  Once he got started he liked it though.  I will add some to his lettuce ball this week....
