Brief update.

It's been crazy around here! I haven't had time to get photo updates but I'm working on it!

The 3 little kids Outlaw, Charger and Button are all moved into the small side of the big boys pen and loving it! Eating and climbing won't be long before they can have the run of the whole pen, including the 10ft. high section. Outlaws abscesses are healed up, just hoping another doesn't mysteriously pop up.

Roxy got her staples out today and the incision looks great! The dress will be off very soon and I don't think it will be long before she is able to go into the big pen and start climbing around again.

While working on the opossum cage at Mary's house this past weekend I took a peek out back to see if any more of the releases were around and was happy to see Stormy had made her way back there. I was worried about her after her traumatic trip a mile or so down the road where her sister was killed, but she's doing great and has hopefully learned a very valuable lesson about roads! Seeker was also out there with Oakey, Sugar, Meeko, Bear and Winny.

The 6 older boys Tosser, Mohican, Stinky, Nosey, Rollo and Quinny are all out back in the big release pen for the winter and loving it.

This weekend myself, Mary and Laurie are heading to the New York state wildlife conference at Niagra. It was touch and go for a while there with so many staying this winter and one injured girl back in, but thank God for Joanne! She is unable to go with us, but will be able to pop over to my place to take care of the gang. Roxy will probably go home with her so she can keep a closer eye on her. Thank you Joanne....I know they are safe in your hands!

My released gang out back are doing great. It's that time of year.....they are eating up a storm and packing on weight. All the pics from the cooncam show a very crowded feeding platform and amazingly they all appear to be getting along very well.
