Separate Engagement/Wedding Blog?

I have so many little things I want to talk about but don’t want to lose some of my very few followers on here :P mushy lovey stuff can get annoying. we’ll see P:

My sister suggested I use one of my ferrets to be my ring bearer… HOW DO I JUST CHOOSE ONE?! xD </3 The fattest would be the common response. Aristaeus isn’t shy about cameras and isn’t crazy so he’ll just about go where you want him but that means I leave out my other babies. That and my wedding and reception will more than likely all be outdoors. What if it’s too hot for him? :( I can’t put him under that stress. I can’t put ME under the stress of him being stressed. P: It’s not like my critters will know they missed my wedding right? lol

oi…

had a minishoot with the ferrets

and now that my arms and chest are all clawed up because I have neglected to cut their nails (I hate doing it) and I smell to the high heavens of ferret (they also need to be bathed! what a great parent I am!)…. I’ve got a few good shots with all 4 of my babies <3

Archer being crushed by my girls. OK fine he was just yawning&#8230; BUT yawning looks like screaming sometimes.

I looked up ways to cool a ferret down and one idea was to freeze water bottles, wrap them in towels so when they melt the towels will catch the water and they can have something cool to lay on. Well, my ferrets unwrapped them and decided to play with them instead.

Frozen water bottles are a great way to keep your ferrets cool during the summer, even if they do unwrap them and choose to play with them!  Remember, ferrets cannot sweat so they cannot cool down on their own.  Temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit can cause health problems while temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit can be fatal for ferrets.  Heat stroke can kill a ferret within minutes. So if you are in the northern hemisphere at this time of the year, keep an eye on your ferrets as temperatures begin to climb!  Keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
Lethargic, lying flat on the floor.
Mouth open.
Nose and gums darker pink (white if going into shock).
Panting.
Salivating
Body is limp
Red food pads.
SEVERE SIGNS OF HEATSTROKE INCLUDE MUCUS COMING FROM MOUTH/NOSE, COLLAPSE, SEIZURE, COMA.
If your ferrets begin to show symptoms of heat stress or heat stroke, STAY CALM and steadily lower the ferrets body temperature.  Quickly lowering the ferret’s body temperature is dangerous as you could lower the temperature too far.  There are a couple of ways to slowly and safely lower the body temperature of  ferret.  These include providing the ferret water through a syringe (only if conscious), wipe or wrap the ferret in a cool towel, and applying rubbing alcohol to the foot pads (and only the foot pads!).  The goal is to manage your ferret’s rectal temperature (yes, you need to take your ferrets rectal temperature) down to 103 degrees Fahrenheit, thus stabilizing your ferret.  Once you have stabilized the ferret, take them to a vet IMMEDIATELY.  Your ferret may need further treatment.  Furthermore, there is a chance your ferret will go into shock hours after a heat stroke.  Therefore, you cannot skip a trip to the vet.  
However, you can still have fun with your ferrets in the summer!  Although my ferrets hate baths, they love going outside and playing in a stationary water sprinkler (not the ones that move or rotate) when it is warm outside.
