September Month in Review

I really cannot believe that it is October.  How crazy is that?

September was a pretty good.  From a health perspective:

Ferrets - everyone is doing well.  Madison went in for her vet visit due to hair loss.  Ended up being a bit of a coat change and a bit of the symptoms for adrenal disease so we gave her an implant to treat the adrenal parts and we are still losing hair due to the coat change.  She is one naked baby!  Other than the funky hair - she is quite happy and active and seems to be feeling just great.  The others have started their coat changes as well - nothing anywhere near what Maddie is doing.

Kitties are good - I am going to try to get them in for annual vet appointments in the next couple of weeks. They are all feeling good but I need to get Ollie and Phoebe in for a blood draw so we can check thyroid levels and renew their prescriptions.  Aggie - well, at almost 18 she is just going with the flow....  crazy cat.

Emma is well - she has not enjoyed the abundance of rain we have had in September.... but - I think she is feeling good and is doing just great.

Piglet is fantastic.  He is happy and doing well - he loved having his Auntie come for a visit early in the month.  For the most part of his month he got to stick to his regular schedule which makes him a very happy piggy.

Business travel occurred this month for both of the humans.  Lots of travel for the hubs - only a few days for me but unfortunately they overlapped.  Thankfully our pet sitter was able to step in and cover our crazy schedules.  They all did great with her.  Little critters were cooperative.  Kitties let her do their meds, ferrets "helped" her with chores, Winston was a good boy and did not misbehave and Emma did well - she hates it when her herd is incomplete.

All in all - it was a good month - it just flew by way too fast.  Thankfully I think I am done traveling for the year.  Now its time to go heads down in prep for the holidays.
