Meet Skunky and Domino

No, he's not named Skunky because he stinks (his glands were removed - so he won't be stinky). He just has a black stripe down his back and tail. I mentioned to Patti in the pet store that he looked like a skunk and she said "he's skunky" and it stuck. I never ever thought I'd own a ferret.... but, after having him for a week, he grows on you. He really is great with the kids... he and Patti play chase around the house and he even snuggles with Patti while she watches tv. Cal's still a little scared... yes, my fearless child turns out not to be so fearless. But, that's okay with me.... he needs some type of cautiousness in his life.

So, meet our 'frat', Skunky (nickname given to him by Uncle Mike Mike).....



Here's Domino. He's a very sweet bunny... he lets Patti cradle him like a baby. He's not a fun as Skunky, but he soft and cute.

Here's Patti taking the duo on a shopping trip. Not sure I like her getting them out whenever she pleases.... we'll have to work on that.

Oh my goodness Jenny. They're cute. Kellen isn't much of a fan of real-life animals, either. Your kids are so cute.

Great...now how am I supposed to explain to Norah why Patti and Cal can have two pets, and she can't have any?! You're such a fun mom!
