The Little Boys Have Met the Big Boys

Sorry for no updates in so long! The month of May is always hectic. We went to NY for vacation a couple weeks ago (don’t worry, my brother rat-sitted), then this long weekend was spent on the Indy 500 and the surrounding festivities.

Well the big boys and little boys are still living separately, but hopefully not for long. They’re almost big enough to go in the Big Boy Cage. They do get to play together almost every day though. Here’s a video of them playing:

Hue’s all better!

He had his final vet check today and the vet said he was fully recovered. She massaged his trachea and tickled his nose trying to get the mucous to move around and make him sneeze. But there were no sneezes! Then she listened to his lungs with a stethoscope and didn’t hear anything. She said he could come off the meds, because she didn’t want him to become resistant to them. So I decided to bring the little guys home today. :D They had been at the office for 2 1/2 weeks and now that they are totally better I thought it was time they came home where I can give them lots more attention. 

I held each of them up to Pixel through the cage bars so they could sniff each other too.  I think they’re going to be great friends. Pixel sniffed each one for a couple seconds then tried to groom their faces. I haven’t tried it w/ Pica yet though since he’s so dominate. I don’t want to stress the little guys out after their big move home. The new boys are still babies practically, so I don’t think there’s going to be any issue with introductions. They’re still too small to go in the cage with the big boys though. So they’ll only get to play together for now.
