This weekend our cousins, Tonks, Chandler Bing and Ripley, came to visit and spend a few days with us! We LOVE it when they come over. They came over in their "visiting" Grandma cages which are much smaller than the ones they have at home with Aunt Melissa and Aunt Dana. Like I said before, we love them to visit. Hu-mom puts chairs in front of the ferret cage so we can talk and visit with them.
Ripley, the African Gray Parrot, is a lot of fun to watch, too, but she has a VERY sharp beak and knows how to use it, so we don't get too close to her. She also is very talkative and is fun to listen to.

Fast forward to this morning about 6:30AM.
Hu-mom was awakened by Mack barking out the front window. She commenced to do her regular AM chores in the kitchen. All of a sudden, there I was hopping around at the sliding glass doors in the breakfast room! Hu-mom let out a shriek and realized that she never let me in last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To her amazement, I was really happy and gobbled down my breakfast and was very playful. I forgave her! I guess I need to learn to bark to come in like Mack does. It was also nice out last night, being in the low 70's and it didn't rain or thunder. Hu-mom thought I wouldn't want to ever go back into the back yard again. But she snapped this photo of me this morning wanting to play fetch with my mini tennis ball.
Note from hu-mom: I am so sorry Minnie! This will never happen again, I promise. You are a brave girl to stay outside, by yourself, all night and not make a racket. We have lots of neighborhood wildlife and I'm really surprised that Minnie did not bark once all night! It's almost 8AM and she has crashed on our bed for, what I believe, will be a very loooong morning nap!
The weather here has finally started to cool down, so Mack and I hope to have some adventures!
Minnie : )
