General Updates

Here it is - September the 3rd and I haven't blogged at all this month.  August was a terrible blogging month - just too much going on.  Life gets in the way sometimes.

So - a quick look back at August -  it was a pretty good month.  Critter health was great this month - everyone is feeling good!  Woot!  We traveled in August which is always a bit stressful for the critter mom mostly.  Winston did pretty well - once he figured out I was gone and he was relying on someone else for food and cookies he was a pretty nice boy.  Emma was well behaved but melancholy while we were gone - she hates it when we are away from her.  The ferrets were great - very social.  The kitties did well too - Phoebe, who hid every time we tried to practice giving meds, decided that once I was gone she was going to be the pet sitter's BFF.  All in all things went well.

As we look at September - its gearing up to be a crazy critter month.  My BFF is coming to town today.  The critters love their Auntie so they will be very excited once she gets here.  We will have a nice leisurely week this week.  I am traveling for business later this month - not looking forward to being away from my babies again.  Hubs will be here so he can take the morning and evening shifts and pet sitter will be in throughout the day to let the dog and pig out for playtime and potty breaks.  I still haven't gotten the kitties in for their annual check ups - I have to get those scheduled but it will likely have to wait for my business travel to wrap up.  They are all doing well so its not super pressing.

All in all - August was good - and September will be too!
