Opps Management Error - one of the first chores as soon as the sun is up is to hose off the walks and porches - cus the chickens and goats and some of us poo there. Well when it's well below freezing .......... Forgot to include WAIT till noon and it's warmer to hose things off in the winter !!!! Two legged creatures better really watch their step!!!! Bet you'd rather step on the poo then the sheet of ice !!!

Come on!!  Sing along with me!!!

Somebody asked why I was famous and so I had to give an interview!

On the Seventh Day of Christmas, 
look what came to Rikki’s,
seven guinea fowl freeloading,
six lizards a lazing,
five guinea pigs a gnawing,
four elderly equines,
three burly bossy bovines,
two rabbits a mating,
and a chukar in a cherry tree.

Someone pointed out to me the other day that there are ads that pop up on the side of facebook.  I guess I’d sort of seen them, but never paid any attention.  And then one really caught my eye today and so I kept glancing at them.  Here’s some real dousies that’ll put a smile on your face!!

Here’s the best ad ever.
Oh yeah, why not, let's make my pillow more available! Let's make kitty run for it with hind legs crossed! Why not just throw it out? You kitty can think of all kinds of creative places to leave the poo. Not a problem, we can think of places YOU never though of!!!! Don't you love surprises! Just hide my box!! Actually this is what they're talking about!!!

And then I got Custom Survival Bracelets -  I guess this is for the owner who hid kittiy's litterbox - huh??? If any of you know if these really work, let me know, I could get quite a few for some brofurs and sisfurs I'd like to see survive for a long long time to come.    http://www.survivalstraps.com/

I'm sorry, I can't help it !!! " WEAR IT – UNRAVEL IT – SURVIVE IT”  We build SurvivalStraps with enough paracord that in an emergency situation you can actually unravel them and deploy the paracord for use." Do you think the parachute is sold separately?

And before my head fell off from too much laughing I got

Vincent’s Very own 25 Days of Christmas
On the seventh day of Christmas, Rikki’s received
seven guinea pig garages,
six hours of warm and wonderful heat,
five gentle, soothing, healing musical CDs,
four lights to help us see all the creatures at night,
three nummy cans food for each of the doggies,
two snuggy pads to keep us comfee,
and me eating FANCY FEAST ....

The guinea pigs would love to use this as a shelter – especially when we stuff it with straw!  Yes, we know the product says it is a covered cat litter box, but we get used to thinking “outside the box”.  You see the nice little stairs and the cozy compartment inside?

Deborah Ailman: Take a Look At This! « Optimistforever's Blog
Positive thought counseling makes a great gift! Many people get depressed during the holidays because they are alone, have to work, etc. And sometimes they get upset because they will be seeing family members with whom they may have some differences. 

From Rene Luther
If you look to the left of the open sign, you can see my "forecast flurries" sign inside Sherri's Shoppe. This has always been a dream of mine... Either selling my own things or having them in a gift shop. How cool is that?  Husband took this picture off his cell phone driving by.

Rene started her career as an artist by painting murals at Rikki’s !!!!  Now she donates a portion of her income to help the animals!!! 

Shop local this season. Rene Luther has her Christmas signs for sale at Sherri's Shoppe in downtown Orange.  Proceeds of her sales go to Rikki’s Refuge.
