No News is Good News

The day is wrapping up and as I think about what to write about - there really is no news - and that's good.  Bash is feeling great - he is happy and active and his pee is no longer red.  These are all good things.  He is back with his brothers and sisters and other than his antibiotic 2 times a day everything is back to normal.  The rest of the weasel bunch is doing just great!

The kitties had a regular day of lounging, eating and being lazy - they have such a rough life. Everyone seems to be feeling good.  Their box is scooped and their bellies are full of canned cat food and kitty treats from their Christmas stockings.  Ollie, Zoey and Phoebe have had their meds and they have settled in for the evening.

Emma and Winston both had a good day but they were indoors for most of it - it was C O L D out there today!  Winston enjoyed a kale, fennel, cherry tomato and iceberg lettuce ball this afternoon.  I also got him a new toy for Christmas - its shaped like a stump and has holes in the sides.  There are three stuffed squirrels that fit snugly inside.  I tuck a few cookies in there and he has to root around to find them - he likes it!  Winston likes to help with the laundry as well - as you know he shuts the doors to the machines but he also likes it when you use his back as a folding table.  He stands very still and lets you do your folding.  I think he likes the warm clothes on his back.  Silly pig.  Emma has been playing with toys from her stocking and she was happy when the postman stopped by for a visit to deliver some boxes.  He is very nice to her.  Both of them have braved the elements and gone out for their last potty break and they are both snoozing in their beds.

All in all it was just a regular day.  This post is sort of like a Seinfield episode - a lot about nothing!
