We've had company!

Neighbor Peggy has had a lot of work done on her house lately-a new roof, newly glazed windows, repainted exterior trim. The biggest project of all, however, has been the repair and refinishing of her hardwood floors-upstairs and down. You can imagine what an ordeal this has been.

So for the past week plus, Peggy and most of her fur babies have been bunking in with me and Maisy. Her dog Bandit has enjoyed his own retreat elsewhere with an energetic 5th grader.

Mugsy was not real sure of the whole situation upon arrival last Wednesday morning. He decided his best vantage point was from the end of the bed in the guest room.

Ferrets Taz and Ringo, on the otherhand, have enjoyed all the comings and goings next to the back door in the kitchen.

They are either very active

or very asleep.

They are very quick to follow you, especially if you have a camera.

Most of my attempts to photograph them have resulted in "nose" shots.

Mugsy has finally ventured into the rest of the house and drinks from Maisy's water bowl. That green in the placemat sure brings out his big green eyes.

Maisy likes that the ferrets toss food out of the cage.
She is happy to clean up after them.

All in all, everyone has gotten along quite well, including the humans.

Peggy has great looking floors now. The furniture is all back in the house and everyone will head home when the fumes die down a bit.

I'm hoping Maisy won't have too much withdrawal.
