So, it’s not over yet, but Christmas 2009 has not been so bad. It’s not perfect- there wouldn’t be much to say if it was. I got in around 6:30, and slept pretty well so that’s a plus from previous years. There is heat in the building, which is excellent because there were some issues yesterday. I go to check on Nimbus, and she seems well. She takes her meds pretty well but leaves a present on my pants, as seen below.
I get the rest of the treatments ready- lots of ferret meds and opossum stuff to get ready. I got more of the efa cap oil for the opossums on my sweatshirt than in the opossum food. I pull two more pills out to actually get some for the opossums…I believe my sweatshirt is ruined though.
Around 7:30 volunteer Ashlyn and her family show up to help before they hit the road to visit family in South Carolina for Christmas. (She emailed me yesterday and asked if I wanted her to come in and do the education animal holding rooms). I missed the shot of her husband inside the rabbit cage, and you cannot see her daughter locked in the cages with the ferrets. Ashlyn is laughing because she hasn’t dropped and broken the dishes yet (usually I break dishes, but not this year- thanks Ashlyn for covering me on this one).
