Ferrets as Pets

Posted by admin on Apr-18-2006

Ferrets make wonderful pets, but they aren’t recommended for homes with small children. This isn’t because the ferret is a danger to the child, but visa versa. The sheer exuberance in their play – children and ferrets – can make for some dangerous situations for the ferret, who hasn’t sense enough to avoid it.

Our ferret has lived through many close calls with our 3 year old. I swear that ferret has had more lives than a cat, and he still loves to play with her. He’s been held underwater during her bath so she can wash him, he’s been stuffed inside a plastic bag, he’s been stuck head first in a boot and almost suffocated…

I would suggest that anybody who is considering getting a ferret should wait until the youngest child in the family is at least 6. Old enough to understand that ferrets are not teddy bears, but are real, breathing creatures.

For older children, ferrets are almost an ideal pet. They interract with us, they play, and they will go back to their cages for a nap when we need them to. There is a forum about Ferrets, for anyone who is interested in learning more about these wonderful pets.

My new Grandson

Posted by admin on Mar-21-2006

Last Monday at 3:00 in the morning the phone rang. It was my 38 week pregnant daughter calling. I had already been awake for a few minutes. “What’s up?”, I asked. “What do you think!!”. I don’t know where my head was, what other reason would she be calling me early in the morning. The baby was on the way.

Luckily, my other daughter was spending the night at my house, so the expectant parents loaded up their 1 year old and drove him over so Joc could babysit him and my 3.5 year old daughter, while I rushed to the hospital with them. I consider myself a very lucky woman that they both wanted me in the delivery room again this time.

Little Michael, 8 pounds and 6 ounces, and a full head of dark hair, was born after a fast and smooth labour at 6:50 in the morning.

My other daughter is expecting a baby in June. I can hardly wait!
