 Little Simba is going for a pre neuter exam

On the 19th! I'm nervous but its just a wellness check. They are probably going to tell me to feed him more, he's a scrawny boy.

 I just don't get it

All these people are talking about how bad ferrets smell and what methods they use to control the smell but my gandalf doesn't smell at all and we don't use any odor eliminator. When we first got him he smelled horrible like the pet store and Tim bought this raspberry spray conditioning stuff but I've never used it and I've only given him two baths with soap since I've had him.

He really doesn't smell and definitely doesn't smell as bad as the gliders. He's a lot cleaner than the gliders too. If I could do it all over again I'd probably not have gliders and just have ferrets.

 Shut it Stimpy

Last night Stimpy was barking.... then i got him to stop and Trinity started. Even the little babies sat perfectly still and so did ren and leia in the other cage.

It's all very strange.

 Nappy time

So I checked on Trinity and she crawled in my shirt and we slept on the couch together.

On the couch I can't roll over on her and she slept the entire time along with me. I would wake up and check on her but her little ears were laid down and she was sleeping away. She was very sweet and got lots of treats though.

My little trin-trin. She's such a sweetie pie (sometimes)

 barking update

So a couple nights ago stimpy was barking up a storm. Really odd for Stimpy since he's usually very quite. Ren, Leia, Trinity and Serenity all froze but while Stimpy was barking he was running around the cage. I've never seen any glider do that, normally they all sit perfectly still when one barks. I find it so funny even Ren and Leia do it. Obviously its instinct because Serenity froze too! My gliders bark about once a week on average but it is almost always the females and usually Trinity at that. I'm glad to know STimpy's voice box still works, aside from chattering I haven't heard him bark or crab for a while. :D

 Ren and Leia sagas

Ren and Leia fight over food like crazy. It's insane how they do it. Leia will grab a piece of food and run around the cage crabbing until she finds somewhere to eat it so after our vacation I'm going to make her a little room out of an oatmeal container or something and see if that helps.

I'm also putting them on ensure again. I feed them a lot more than I feed Stimpy and Trinity (same foods too). I feed them more because while Leia is going on her crabbing fits she drops a lot of the food, but when I watch they eat all of it. They pull the food through the cracks and eat it. I've never seen a pet gorge themselves so much. Leia and ren will eat so much their belly will be three times the normal size. So I'm going to start giving them ensure since when I did they didn't fight.

I'm going to look for other drinks like ensure with less iron. It seems all the diets (Ensure, BML, maybe HPW) have high iron content in them. I can assume piedasure will have more in it, and it might come down to us having to make some for them. We have wheat germ and I can make something similar to the BML with more natural sugars and less iron (Which is taking out the baby cereal and yogurts). But what would I mix, I know someone went around preaching about wheat germ but that was all pulled out of his butt from what I actually read when i did my own researching.

I'll be sure to post more as I continue on.

 Last night

Last night at like 3 am whenever I went to bed, dead tired I saw Trinity, she was hanging on the side of her cage closest to my bed and I just watched her for at least half an hour eat little bits of hamburger meat, I suppose she senses what kinds of vitamins she needs being preggo.

I saw her lumps moved and watched them for a while, it looks like two little babies wriggling around, her belly waved as if it were a sea, I finally moved the blanket around her cage down when I noticed she was grooming her babies and fell asleep.

Good times.

 The day I got Neo posted in my livejournal.

I told Timothy about sugar gliders the other day,a nd we started searching for one. No pet shop in Jackson or Memphis had one, so we finally found a website that had one, this lady lived in Eagleville...she said that another woman who worked for her could come bring it to us next weekend, but we are going to be camping, so we offered to drive... she said it would be quicker to go to the Nashville state fair, where they were selling them. So I drove to Nashville with very little guidance from my significant other. It was fun, I was scared to, but it wasn't half as bad as Louiseville. So, now we have a beautiful little sugar glider, and until we live together, Timothy has primary custody- when he goes out of town, and when Tim stays the night with me, I'll have him. We named him Neo after the Matrix, we were going to name him Constantine, but it was just such a large name for such a little dude. He's so cute He was crawling on the edge of the cage and I handed him a bit of apple about the size of his paw, and he took it out of my hand with one of his, and hung on the cage and ate it one handed.
