As I tweeted a few moments ago, we have arrived safely at home with our new vermin.
Two ferrets join the Smith household, newly dubbed Jango and Boba (male, neutered, and — thank you — descented). In fact, as I type Ferretopolis is being constructed downstairs as a wonderful new home for the critters. Early in our marriage, my Beautiful Wife and I were interested in getting some ferrets but never did. I suspect I was the footdragger in that. I’m not sure what pushed us over the edge this time, but over the edge we did indeed go.
I will try and take some pictures and post them later (I’m sure you’re thrilled!). The kids, needless to say, are deliriously happy. The cat — not so much so.
Once al the dust has settled this evening, I am planning a little Bible study for the kiddos to go along with their new “charge” to talk about being a steward, what we can learn about God when we have a life to care for, etc. (with verses such as Deueronomy 22:6-7, et al.).
Like it or not, I’m sure I will post more news and some photos in the near future. Unless they eat me first. (The ferrets, not the kids.)
