Stories of the Day

There hasn't been a lot to write about the last few days.  The critters are all doing great but there haven't been doing anything all that noteworthy.

The ferrets got some playtime in the shower in their bathroom - they love it and I try to let them have time to explore and play in the water once every 10 days or so.  I don't want them to do it too often as the water can dry out their skin - its a fine line....

The kitties have been being quite well behaved - Oliver has quit wailing at the door and has settled into a nice routine.  Aggie seems quite happy - full of icky hairballs but happy.  Phoebe is well - still acting like a bully - naughty girl.

Emma has been being a pretty good pup other than scratching the carpet - grrrr.  Even bigger grrrr - scratching the carpet at 2:45 am.  Fun times!  She had one day of extreme tummy upset but once she took an antacid she was fine.  Not sure what made her belly so unhappy.  Since then she has been the picture of health.

Winston has been being a pretty good little piglet.  He is getting up way earlier than I would like so I am on the quest to keep him up later.  Last night I opened the door between his room and ours.  He came in and investigated, got some belly rubs and then promptly went back to his bed.  Lazy piglet....

All in all - no complaints....going to let the piglet out now - he has had his dinner and he can play outside until it gets dark....  :)
