Recap of Our Week
So - updates:
Winston - he did so well with his Auntie - he still tried to be a pink turd but she was having none of it. It really goes to show that if someone takes a dominant stand with him he can be well behaved. He has had some lovely cooler days so lots of outside time. All in all - the piglet is doing just great.
Emma - she loves her Auntie as well and she got to see her grandma (my mom) and her pup Quincy as well. She had lots of play time, attention and treats - spoiled pup! She is tucked into her bed tonight and happy and worn out pup.
Kitties - All the kitties are doing just great - still needing to get them into the vet. Soon I promise! Everyone is happy and healthy and doing well. They have been enjoying the outside playspace.
Ferrets are doing great as well - just one small area of concern... Miss Madison is having a bit of hair loss. It's a fairly bare tummy and very thin on her sides. I am kind of leaning towards a significant coat change - we had some major changes in the boys when they went from winter coats to summer coats. It's that time of year again and I think (at least I am hopeful) that she is shedding her coat in prep for her winter coat. I did, however, make her an appointment to see the vet on Tuesday. There is a disease called Adrenal disease that is quite common in ferrets. It can be treated with medication or surgically and is very treatable if caught early. Seeing that Maddie just had a full blood workup about 7 weeks ago it would be very early. Either way I just want to be sure. I have to travel later in the month and I want to be sure she is fine so I don't have to worry even more than I already will.... I will keep you posted on what we find out. She has none of the other symptoms of Adrenal disease so I am really hoping she is good to go....pet parenthood is hard sometimes.
So - this week has been great - critters enjoyed the extra attention! Tomorrow it's back to work and back to our regular routines. There is something kind of comfortable about that somehow.
