August 13, 2014

I am so tired. I've been getting woke up early for over a month ... My mom is so noisy. 'oh, did I wake you up?' No duh ... It's starting to get to me.

But, at least I am home today. Almost time to start on the cages. I already have the boys and Kayla out on the deck.

And, I have to figure out something for the hamsters' water. Both Zihna and Cassia pulled their new bottles down and half their bedding is soaked. It's good I'm cleaning today!

Ugh. We've got tooooo much STUFF! Just did some more rearranging. I think my office is good, now. I have room in the Critters' Room now for the new hamster when he arrives next week and to set up the old puppy playpen for the other rabbit when I decide on one. Hopefully, by the end of the month. That will be all the animals coming in until births start.

I need to research critter-safe spray paint. I have 4 cages I want to paint, but can't until I am sure the coating is safe enough if they chew the bars ...

Huh. Found some good answers for the cage-painting. Rust-O-Leum or marine-grade paint for above the waterline. Now, to decide on colors. I think we'll most likely go with white.

Loong day tomorrow. Gotta go to the farm for milk. Then, four stores to service. I also have to meet the gal that is going to pick up the hamster in Redding for me.

Yay! The gal that I'm meeting messaged me and says she will be going up for the hamster on Saturday!
