Well, the Special ED crew and I are all doing quite fine. We've had a few recent additions to our numbers, however, in the rather lengthy respite I seem to have taken from LJ.
Did I mention we have ferrets?
5 of them, to be exact. They are as follows:
Babooshka. ("Baboo" for shorts...)
And last but certainly not least, The Dread Pirate Roberts.
I have always wanted a ferret. Hank grew up with ferrets. So, naturally he was quite alright with the decision to get some. They are wonderfully entertaining. Our small room off the kitchen has been converted into their 'play room' in which they romp a good 4-6 hours a day. It is filled to the bring with odds and ends for them to crawl through burrow under, dig into, or climb on...not to mention the wide assortment of toys for them to tackle. They're living it up, here.
I know what you're thinking. 5 ferrets!? Thats a LOT of FERRET! ...Well, if it weren't for the room we had set aside for them, then no, it would not be so easy, I'd imagine. But being able to just open their cage doors and let them out into the ferret room to play their little hearts out while we go do our thing is a godsend. I scoop their litter once a day when I get home. Their bedding is washed once a week. Hank feeds them and checks their water before heading off to work in the morning. Its our system, interlaced with the care of our other critters.
The ferrets are certainly OK with it. And so are we. :D
We've been getting regular updates on Hank's puppy. He is a roly-poly 6 weeks, now! 2 more weekends until we are due to pick him up!
He is one of these, we just don't know which yet:
Gah, the CUTE.
That will effectively make:
...In the Special ED household. Are we nuts, or what?
