Welcome to the blog for the Oregon Ferret Shelter! Ideally, this will be a nice venue for friends of the shelter to get information about what is going on with the shelter. Or maybe just to view some funny gifs.

I joined Fab.com and found the pEi Pod

So I joined Fab.com. They have lots of gorgeous modern furniture and stuff that has crazy funky designs. I read it because I never know what will inspire me to do good art for the ferrets.

So what do I see today? The PRECIOUS PRECIOUS egg pet bed! They are adorable! They come in various colors and animals seem to love them.

What's the catch? The price. They retail for $129. Fab.com has them on sale for $79. But even at that significantly discounted price, I still can't justify buying one. I just think of all the homeless furry faces and how that $129 can buy more than a week's worth of food for the almost 200 ferrets at the Oregon Ferret Shelter.

So, no pEi Pod (the cool name for the egg-shaped bed) for my furkids. But I hope whoever gets one is happy with their purchase. Here is the link for their products http://www.peipod.com. Enjoy!

Oh, and here is the link for our donations (in case I guilted you just enough to give a few bucks): http://www.oregonferretshelter.org/donations.htm

Halloween Costume Contest Fun!

Aperture Science: We do what we must because we can

And what we can do is make a Companion Cube costume for our ferret!

Our little girl, Millie, may have cataracts and be blind, and she also may have no tail (it had a chordoma and had to be removed), but she makes an excellent companion. And how better to showcase her companion-y talents than to make her a Companion Cube to cuddle in.

Millie thoroughly enjoyed her turn at the Oregon Ferret Shelter's annual Costume Contest. Even though she didn't win or place, she still had a wonderful time in her custom-made snuggler.

While every other ferret fought to get out of their costume (no matter how adorable they looked!), Millie curled right up in hers and fell asleep. In fact, she had to be woken up a total of four times for the judging. Apparently, I made it TOO comfortable.

More pictures of the event, including pictures of the ferrets who actually won the event, will be up on our website soon after I resolve some technical difficulties. I found out that Slide.com will be closing down, and I have to find another place for our photo slideshows to be hosted. It's always somethin', eh?

In the meantime, Happy Halloween!
