yikes!!! I check my guinea's feet daily for anything. plus, I need to trim her nails... they're getting long and very...sharp...

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Ooo lol!! I know, they love being outside. I cannot wait for spring when I can have the guineas outside. Summer'll be stifling hot.... Not sure what I'll do then. I am buying a crate/kennel fan for the guineas because I know if it is 45 (celsius) outside, it's bound to be 55 inside -.- we have NO fans. or A/C.

Lol, she really just likes any excuse to be mean
At my parents house I used to have a pen set up outside for guineas, rabbits or ferrets to run (play) I had to watch them while they were there (my street was full of nosy kids and you already know how curious ferrets are, lol)
NO fans OR AC!?!?!?!? I would SO die, lol, I don't know how you live with that

I moved here in December x.x I don't know HOW I will survive lol However I have a higher tolerance for hot weather. (no wonder I like bettas...I'd fry goldfish by accident in our hot summers!!) I don't do well in the cold.

A little story on Ferrets...

There was one ferret I took home a few years ago, random stop at a pet store 6 hours from home and I decided to buy a ferret. I named her Hali, she was a full grown female in with a bunch of babies. The store said she had been there for a year. I can't even find a picture that looks like her, but she was fluffy and white with little black tips on her fur. So unique. Anyways, I took her home and she was a savage. She would bite (not nip) through the bars, she couldn't be handled. I had experience with ferrets (my first was an abuse case that was deaf, she bit a lot) but not a healthy ferret. Anyways, everything I tried wouldn't work. I was doomed.

One night I was sitting on the sofa, the ferret cage was in the hallway to the bedrooms. I heard screaming. Those with ferrets understand the "screaming" I speak of. I ran to check and poor Hali got her leg stuck in a bar on her cage. She was spitting and biting. I had to have 15 stitches done at the hospital. But when I finally got her free, I held her so close and cried. It broke my heart to hear her in that much pain. I kissed her and spoke to her and snuggled her... and I would NOT let her leave my side. It wasn't until 3 days later that I realized, she stopped biting me when I went to the cage. Poor Hali was so grateful, and saw the human I actually was. She was the sweetest ferret after that, one of my favorites actually. Sadly, she crossed over the rainbow bridge in my arms a few months later after loosing her battle with cancer. I miss her.

My other story? My Noelle... a little half size ferret I stole from a crack house in 2006 on Christmas Eve. Friend of mine called me to come over and check out the ferret, and the owner was too out of it to notice I was there. Seeing as I was helping with rescue, the concerned people called me. I told them she was sick, I told them she wasn't going to make it and I would take her and have her humanely put down. No, she was actually in a ferret sleep and was very much the picture of health just very hyper from never being out of her cage. Best choice I ever made was taking her out of that house! Noelle never had a cage with me, she slept on my bed with the cats and rode around in my sweater hood during the day. I would call for the cats and she would come running too. She was my absolute favorite!! I miss her to this day.

Ferret can be amazing pets... I don't own them because they stink lol
