The ferret show I was talking about last month is on saturday. So the boys will be getting their monthly groom (which they do not enjoy at all)… I started the operation yesterday with the nailclippers and cotton swabs. Of course NutriPlus gel was present the whole time. :)
Grooming Day feat. Justus, Immu and NutriPlus.
As you can see from the pic they are hoarding the gel like there is no tomorrow.
Immu is our dirty paw. The others groom themselves and keep their paws pretty and clean, but not Immu. I bet he is thinking “Why should I clean my paws. My pethumans will do that for me eventually.”
Today or tomorrow I will clean their ears, today I will bath and brush them (which they hate! Brushes are their worst enemies.. dunno why..) And at saturday we will be leaving at 5:00-6:00 am to the Lempäälä where the show is. So exciting!! Actually I have a lot of mixed feelings but it’s so much fun to meet other ferret owners that I don’t care about anything else.. Ranking probably won’t be that good but at least it is an experience.
Root for us!
13th of October I’m taking Justus and Immu to the Finnish Ferret Festival, our first ever show to participate. First I was gonna take Kiivi with me too, but then I decided that it wasn’t a good idea because of their non-cooperation. And the ride there won’t be that spacious so one carriage box is better option.
So anyway, I’m nervous of how the boys will act. I know the flaws that Justus has so he won’t be bringing gold home, but Immu hasn’t been ever evaluated before so I have no idea how he’s gonna do.
Before the show we still have a lot to do. Boys will be needing their vaccinations and their anti-parasite treatments. Not that they have any (hopefully) but that’s normal procedure. Better make that phone call tomorrow so I won’t be forgetting it.

Also bought a new shampoo for them so hopefully they will be smelling good (if they even can). A lot of brushing and grooming which they love (not!). At least they get their vitamins, like today when we were cleaning Immu’s paws and ears.
