|Parakeets aka Budgies|
|Give me a break. I'm running as fast as I can!|

Today we went to Pensacola to a pet store to buy ferret food. "Why not buy some at the local Wal-Mart?" you might ask. Good question. Ferrets are very picky about their food. They like the flavor of whatever they were raised on, and ours were raised by the breeders on an expensive brand from the pet store, naturally. One of our rescue ferrets, Baby Bear, was used to eating the cheaper food, and we hoped that the others would try it and like it. No way. Not only did they not like his, he didn't like theirs. So we had to continue buying both kinds of food as long as he was alive. It isn't impossible to change what ferrets eat, but it's difficult and time consuming, according to the books we've read, so we just keep giving them what they're used to.
Anyway, I was hoping to bring you some nice pictures of a business of ferrets from the pet store (yes; a group or bunch of ferrets is called a "business," and if you ever saw them running and playing together, you'd know why), but they were completely out! In the 4 years we've been going there, they've never been sold out of ferrets. I can only conclude that the reason is because I wanted to take some pictures for you and cuddle adorable ferrets that I can't take home.
The bunny was sweet, but he didn't tug at my heartstrings and make me want to take him home--today.

Hope you had a glorious spring-like day, too!
