Emma is well - right now as I type she is hiding under the bed as its a rainy day and it thundered earlier. She is always good company when I am not feeling well - she is happy just to hang out with me. She had a good weekend - a long walk on Sunday with her dad.
Winston is doing great. There is a break in the rain so he is outside rooting in the mud and checking under the bird feeder for any goodies. He has been pretty well behaved. I don't like to get too close to him when I am feeling icky as pigs can catch human germs and get sick as well. He has had plenty of outside time which is good. Hopefully the rain will hold off for a bit longer today so he can continue to play.
The kitties are all well - hanging out and seemingly happy and healthy. Zoey is still a bit thinner than I would like but I do think she has put a little bit of weight back on. They didn't get as much attention as they deserved over the last few days but I did make sure they got their feedings, meds and morning and evening loves each day.
Ferrets are all doing great as well! I steer clear of them as well when I am feeling bad as they can also catch human germs and with them being so little it can cause issues. Better safe than sorry. We did a head count each morning and evening and some pets but no hugs and kisses for them. Now that I am feeling better I will spend the bulk of the day with them. I miss those interactions.
The exterminator comes today - he sprays inside and out but we are very careful as to where. I don't let him spray critter land or any of the doorways that lead to critter land and I don't let him spray Winston's area or his doors either. So far it seems to work pretty well - no creepy crawlies in either area and it makes me feel good knowing that they are not exposed to the chemicals even though they are supposedly pet friendly.
All in all - the zoo crew is doing well - no complaints. Hopefully now that I am feeling better I can get some photos posted soon....
