oh, don't worry; that's completely natural
New picture--and a [sorta] group photo. For anyone that's confused, from left: Pixie, Sian, Yogi. You can kinda see in this photo, but does Yogi look...greasy to anyone else? I honestly don't know if it's my imagination or if it's fact, but to me he's kinda oily-looking (compared to The Girls, anyway).
In preparation of moving [yes, we did buy the VA house, and we are now in the process of doing some renov.s], I've been washing ferret bedding. I was so proud of myself--thinking that I had washed everything of theirs. I mean, I have a completely filled clothes hamper [almost as high as my waist]. I was chortling about it, because I finished just as the detergent ran out, when what do I see walking back to Teh Ferreet Room [as my nieces say]? Mmm, that's right; another completely filled box of dirty ferret bedding [that included their charcoal bed, which I need and can't believe I didn't miss the first time around].
And I've learned something else. Those Aunt Jeni's cartons do leak. So much so that it almost dissolves the darn cardboard in places [ewwwwwwwwwwww]. Also, The Triad love the juice from the raw meat, and now that the container soaks it up, it leaves them with barely any. When I warm it up [never try to serve a ferret cold raw meat. It's an insult, I've learned. Makes sense, too--if they were hunting, the carcass and all it's....goodies would be warm], it releases some more juice, but it's not the lovely mini-lakes like before, and believe me, The Triad noticed.
Observant little buggers.
Oh! And here's one last thing before I go. I'm putting this up, because these are the things that I find funny [No, I don't know why, either]:
Those are Pixie's feet, by the way [how d'ya like the one longer nail? Nice, huh?]. I dunno, I cracked up when I saw that on the bottom of the cage. The taz reminded me of two scenarios with my Triad: 1) wardancing, and 2) ferret-y tantrums when someone stole or is in the process of stealing someone's toy or RMB.
Yep. That's it for now :)
