Celebratory posting is in order, I think
I just want to say thanks for all the kind words and positive thoughts directed our way. Everyone's doing great (my niece is back home and playing and healing wonderfully). I was also able to talk with E. (after he was able to get over the shock and fear) about Ben, and he said he would be okay with Ben being separated from the girls, and that he wouldn't ask for my dog's euthanization. Animal Control said the same thing. So, all's clear now.
As for The Triad: they've been extremely sweet with me. Every one, even Miss Pix, has been cuddly and pretty low-key, actually (for ferrets, anyway). The Twins did manage to get into a pretty serious squabble over their CGH pieces (Sian actually tried to bite Yogi on the neck), so I was forced to chase the both of them around (while they were playing tug of war over the RMB) and try to separate them. I finally managed it, and got Yogi in the cage away from Sian with his own piece. It took a bit (and he did try to thief Pixie's once) but he finally settled down.
I think part of his problem is his shed. It's making him slightly grouchy and even hungrier, so he wants everybody's food and he'll fight to get it. Also? He's losing all his guard hairs first, so he's a skinny, woolly/frizzy fert who's now chocolate on his head and chest and tail and cream everywhere else. It's annoying him, now, and he'll stretch out on the bed while I pluck the tufts of hair out, because he's given up trying to groom the hair off.
So, that's about it, for now. After this past week, I have to say that life for us is pretty darn good and I couldn't ask for more :)
