Super Cooper never stops trying to be cute. lol This photo, I just found, is of him last year. You can see his rat-tail that he had, we thought Adrenal Disease and took him to the vet. That's all back now, wasn't adrenal. In fact I'm positive it was the ferretvite and possibly the diet)8in1 went from pretty good to le'suck). Changed them to a partial raw diet, switched food nice and slow, removed ferretvite from their treat system...added in some duk soup, and it grew back quick, lush and soft. Though it is blonde now...blonde on his black and grey bum looks odd. lol
Mmm, eggs. Keeps down hairballs, they get one egg a week. Two during the molting seasons. Usually just the yolk which is the best part for them. Also helps keep their skin and coats healthy and has a healthy dose of protein! :3 Sometimes I make my own version of Duk Soup for them which is the egg, a tablespoon of hot water, large pinch(maybe a teaspoon or half of one) of Uncle Jim's Dry Duk Soup Mix, a quick squirt of ferretone...that alone or I add in chopped up raw chicken for them. Yum. This was taken last Friday.
Sometimes Cooper gets it on his chin and tries to lick it off. You can see how well THAT turns out. Haha. Don't worry, I wipe them down after. :3 If I don't they use the nearest cat, dog, person or rug...Yes, see Coopers lovely, fluffy tail. It's not as blonde as it was before, it's going to white. During Winter he usually gets a white ring around his butt. xD That doesn't happen now though, it's too much white to be a ring. He used to be SO dark in color! This is their Summer coat, by the way. Cooper usually gets in sorta a black bolero(jacket, whatever, vest...ma calls it a bolero) during the summer, but I don't think it's coming this year. He's gotten lighter every year, Ren has gotten darker.
Ren was trying to slowly sneak over to Alanna and lay down with her. She likes to be near them, but she doesn't like to be smacked. The cats don't hurt them, but the ferrets know claws are supposed to be there and are jumpy about it(Benni used to be a butt, he learned the hard way that if he bullies them they bully back double time...and he's not such a jerk anymore but they remember). Alanna has never done anything mean to them though(aside from kicking them out of her bed, though Cooper usually kicks her out). The cats often slap them for getting too nosy or close. They never hurt them though.
Speaking of being smacked, my other cat was beating up Alanna the other day(he bullies her, doesn't hurt her. He just makes everyone else angry with him, her and the weasels included. She's just a noisy female and doesn't like him anywhere near,which is typical of female cats. He is used to cats cuddling and playing and keeeeps on trying anyways), Cooper heard it and BLASTED over and bit Benni on his fat butt. Well, his back leg, and then ran him up the stairs and came back to check on Alanna. Made a big mess too, knocked over his box of toys shooting out the way he did. I never expected that from the bullying, but cowardly and sweet Cooper. Benni was not harmed, Cooper just bullied him up the stairs. lol But he did bite him, I had to give him a good looking over, he's never bitten anyone like that before so I was worried, they can break bones with them jaws. He was unharmed, didn't even lose fur.
And no, he didn't have peanut butter, I don't let him have it. But he still tries. He smells it and he's after you, you better sit on a table somewhere. Always makes him hiccup which is funny, but yeah, too much sugar. Don't want him getting insulinoma so I've cut sweets completely out of their diets forever ago. This is just him giving me attitude because I wouldn't let him on my desk to steal my fish net and turkey baster! :3
