OFS meeting on May 10

It's Mother's Day! And the Mother's Day festivities got a great start at the Oregon Ferret Shelter meeting when there was a raffle for the infamous Climb-n-Sail, a highly sought-after and discontinued ferret toy.

I was introduced to the Climb-n-Sail a few months ago, when someone put one into our group playpen during a meeting. My tiny ferret, Darkpaw, who never expresses serious interest in anything, immediately dove into the ship and wouldn't come out for the rest of the night. We had to forcibly extricate her by shaking the thing upside-down.

Since that time, I have been on a quest to find one. I came SO CLOSE last night to winning. I put in $20, but I was DENIED! ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! CRUEL FATE!

I will have a Climb-n-Sail someday, for my little fert. This I swear. In the meantime, I shall simply hold my little D.P., with her newly grown tail fur, and whisper comforting things to her.

Poor leetle fuzz, with her tiny feets and her broken heart.
