May - Month in Review

Here we are - already at the end of May - cripes!!

May was a pretty darn good critter month for us.  No major health issues - only one scary moment when Kai was choking.  Other than that everyone has been feeling good!

May was quite busy - new toys for the little critters from Auntie Laurie were a big hit - and still are.  New flooring in the critter area was the big happening this month and I can't express in words how much better things are down there.  Cleanup is a breeze - I am really loving it!

The other big May happening was the 8 critter vet visit which confirmed that the ferrets are all in good health. We did find ear mites which they have already had their first treatment for.  Other than that they are healthy little weasels.  We also did Winston's annual maintenance - physical, dew claws, blood work, tusk trim and vaccinations.  He is a healthy pig - who no longer has a heart murmur I might add!!  Woot!

I can't believe we are almost half way through 2016.... fingers crossed for a healthy and uneventful critter June.
