    A happy and sad day...

    I just had a wonderful, joint baby shower with several of my coworkers. We ate, laughed, and had a great time. At 4:30, I'm expected at my superintendent's office. I will be picking up my notice that I am losing my job next year due to a reduction in force. It's hard to be excited knowing...

    Guess what I've been doing...

    ... GROWING A BABY!!!! I've been bursting to tell people, but we wanted to wait until I was three months along (it's been REALLY hard!). The husband and I are very excited, and I am due on June 9, which, since I'm a teacher, is a very good time. This is my first baby, and everything so far...

    One of my girls has a naked butt! :(

    I came home from a trip the other day, and when I checked on the girls, I saw that Daisy was missing a HUGE strip of fur (about 3 inches wide and an inch high) from her back end! It was GONE - down to the skin, so I don't think it was chewing. I was gone for one day, and my husband was home...

    Bloat and GI Stasis?

    It was a very bad day today, though all of my girls are fine. I fostered two boys last year for a few weeks and then they went to live with one of my coworkers who had always wanted a chinchilla. They were doing really well, and her husband and little girl had completely fallen for them...

    Maybe I'm just being a baby...

    My husband lost his job in December, and he's been working as a temporary worker for another company since the beginning of April. He had always worked first shift, we left the house at the same time, got home around the same time, and were able to eat supper and spend the evening together most...

    Soxie's Drama

    Last year at our old house, two stray cats showed up. They were both very sweet, and they were both VERY pregnant. We kept them in our garage until they had their kittens (9 in total), and then we moved them with us to our new house this past summer. They were both spayed as well. One of the...

    What the heck IS this?!

    When I refilled food and checked the cages this morning, I found this sitting in my quad's cage. I have NO idea what it is! I have seven girls, but two of the girls who live in the quad cage are Arlington chins, so I'm hoping to God this isn't some indicator of pregnancy. I put my finger up...

    How to Train Your Dragon

    I saw this movie tonight, and I LOVED IT!!! It was so cute! Anybody else see it? It was more than just a cute movie; I think it taught a good lesson as well, though not in a preachy way.

    Explain this to me, if you would

    OK, so today has not been the best of days (except for the fact that I got to clean my cages). This is kind of long, so please bear with me! I'm a seventh grade English teacher at a school in Southern Indiana. I coach, and I chaperone dances. I have regular contact with both students and...

    Yay! A successful Quad (so far)

    We introduced our two Arlington chinnies to our two standard girls. We did the cage-within-a-cage method for almost a week (more out of being overly cautious than their not getting along). Friday afternoon, after they had a complete day and night of getting along, we set up their FN142 cage...

    Shipping Companies?

    I'm trying to sell some homemade supplies, and I was wondering if anyone had an affordable option for shipping to Canada. I like including the shipping with my prices, but the shipping to Canada is so expensive it's ridiculous!

    Pygmies!

    In trying to find a pet for my students and I to enjoy, I found these little guys... Meet, Henry, Katherin, Anne, and Jane, members of Rhampholeon brevicaudata, otherwise known as pygmy bearded leaf chameleons. I adopted them from a vet tech at an exotics center, and before I adopted them, I...

    Dealing with kids

    For those who don't know, I'm a seventh grade English teacher. I deal with 12 - 13-year-olds every day, not to mention the fact that I coach the 8th grade basketball team. I wanted to ask you parents out there a question: how does dealing with your own kids differ from dealing with other...

    We lost Apollo

    Apollo, our Ambilobe panther chameleon, died this past Friday. He hadn't been looking too well since we moved this summer, but it got really bad within the past two weeks. It's sad because he was such a little guy, but he wasn't in good shape when we got him, and he really seemed like he was...

    African Bush Rat? HELP!

    One of my students came in saying she traded her cat for a chinchilla. She said the chinchilla looked sick, and that it looked more like a rat than what my pictures of my babies look like. I pulled up a picture of a degu, and she said it looked kind of like that. She left me a note the...

    We adopted two dogs, and now...

    After moving to a newer, bigger house, my husband wanted to realize his dream of owning a dog. We decided the best thing we could do would be to go to the animal shelter and choose a grateful soul rather than a puppy from a breeder (nothing against breeders, though!) We went to our local...

    Wish me luck - taking two very unhappy cats for spaying tomorrow!!

    Well, the big day is finally here! Tomorrow Momma Cat and Soxie get spayed up at the FACE clinic in Indianapolis!! They are both currently hanging out in their temporary "apartment" - our half bath, and they are not very happy about it! Kittens will be ready for their new homes in a week...

    So I have to vent about this...

    I work in a school as a teacher. We are winding down for summer, and we have a work day today. I was sitting in my room, doing some paperwork, and another teacher comes in and asks if I can take care of the chins that the Ag teacher uses as a "project" for his students for the summer. I...

    Going to be fostering for a few weeks... what do I need to know?

    Our local pet store has us pegged. A few weeks ago, one of the workers who has chins himself asked us if we wanted three more (mother and two kits). We told him that we can't keep them, but we would be willing to foster until the kits are old enough to adopt out. Last night we got a phone...

    What would you do?

    Every day, I drive to work. On my way, I pass by a house that is only about 10 minutes away from home. For a long time, there has been a dog outside that house in the back yard, chained to a tree. This dog looks to be some sort of pit or boxer mix, is very pretty, and seems very timid...
