Chaos, the not so fuzzy

Poor little guy...he was out exploring the hallway this morning, though. Life isn't completely gone out of him yet.

Loki makes me laugh.

Loki found a dish of vinegar on the floor that I'd been using for cleaning. He dipped his nose in it and then backed up and shook it off. Then he tried it again from the other side and came away shaking his nose, looking rather disgusted. Chaos had a similar experience and so did Fuzzball. I guess ferrets need to be sure that their senses aren't deceiving them!

And then I called Loki a bit later with the squeaky toy. He was in the kitchen by the fridge and I was by the cage. He came racing around the stove, but didn't quite make the turn. His little feet went out from under him on the linoleum. I laughed so hard and have been laughing again every time I think of his little ferret exploits this morning. Schadenfreude.

Ferret Adventures

Loki once again found the door on the cage that I forgot to close this morning. The little guy was out exploring the apartment when I got home. He was quite the busy bee. He got a paper towel out of the bathroom trash and dragged the plunger and the toilet brush to the bathroom door. I hope that he has developed enough anti-bodies to survive such adventures! He seemed to be one happy little camper. (During all this, both of the other two were apparently still sleeping in the hammock in the cage.)

Lately, I've been wearing pants with rather wide legs. Enkidu keeps trying to climb up inside them. Very cute; not very effective.

Chaos is still trucking along.

Progress on the Fuzzy Front

When I got home this evening, I found both Loki and Enkidu in the same bed in the ferret cage. This gives me hope that they will soon tolerate each other well.

Enkidu is currently curled up in the ferret condo and Loki is making happy ferret noises in the crinkly tube.

Chaos is less than fuzzy.

Choas is not nearly as fuzzy as he used to be and has become rather emaciated on the front end and full of tumors in the back end.

All voted.

I just got home from voting a bit ago. There were 3 people ahead of me in line; pretty painless, considering that some folks have been waiting hours to vote. There is something wrong with a system that makes voting that difficult.

Anyway, I voted for the Democrat ticket, school funding, and universal health-care.

I almost missed the two referendum questions, but fortunately, when I asked the clerk if I only had to mark one thing if I marked the party, she reminded me about the two yes/no questions at the bottom.
