Stasi, from Terrapin Hedgehogs, was visiting me for the past few days. So you can blame her for the recent lack of blog entries. Stasi, it’s all your fault!
But seriously, things have been busy here in the Hollow. We had the gathering to get ready for, we’re still in the process of moving in and getting organized, and the hedgehogs demand the majority of my time. Between answering customer emails, answering Hedgehog World forum questions, and answering emails from random people who got hedgehogs elsewhere, I don’t always have a lot of spare computer time. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing it. But it takes a lot of time out of my day, so I don’t always update as often as I would like to.
Anyway, it was fun having Stasi here for a few days. We got a lot done with the hedgehogs, but there wasn’t nearly enough time to get ourselves into trouble. Sean, Stasi, and I were completely burnt out after the gathering. I think we spent the next day staring blankly at each other and willing ourselves to move. It was a good time, and I am very pleased with how things turned out.
Stasi also helped me clean cages and change some of the moms and babies into larger cages. Then we mixed and packed food; Hamor Hollow’s special mix. We also shopped for food for the gathering and spent some time at Walmart playing with foofy lotions and bath stuff. I heart bath stuff. Oils and salts are my favorite; I love herbal and fruity scents.
