"Hi Linda! It's been a while since our last chat but I still go on your website to read your beautiful posts :) I was wondering if you could ask the Holy Spirit a question for me? Since the departure of my beloved ferret, Cocotte, it took some time to open my heart to another. But now, my home is full of joy again, full of games and love from my new baby ferrets. I have taken three rescues to save their lives from different awful conditions of life. Now they enjoy themselves and play and sleep all day long! I know that a bit of my heart will go every time one of them crosses over; but I can't help myself. There are so many animals in need of a real home and I just can't close my eyes and heart over it. But my question is : yesterday was the first time I relocated one of these babies, my little Princess, and I'm wondering if that was a good move, or if she was better with me? I found her the best home that I could. In the future, I plan to have a Refuge of my own help rescue animals to become pets. I think I have found my purpose in this life! Honestly I just want to know what you and the Holy Spirit thought about that? I wish you both a wonderful day, and I hope to hear from you soon ! Claudine Boissonnault" Oh my Holy Spirit! Claudine has found her purpose in life. How do You feel about that? "Oh My God! We are laughing Up Here! We love it when people take the initiative to move beyond their own kind, within their own affairs and then help another species. Ferrets are not helpless but when they try to exist within a human level, they don't have all the elements to live a wild life and they do need help. Particularly, if they have lost their mother too young. So, yes, Claudine, go for this new and fascinating purpose of yours! But, here's my advice to you: Gain complete confidence in yourself! Do not fret over each adoption. You will be able to train these new owners and can stay ready to offer advice to them. It's not Rocket Science, as you say there on Earth! Much of Pet Ownership is learned along the way, just as Human Parenthood is. But, because ferrets are not known by most people, you could help to introduce the public in any way that you can dream up: newspaper articles, radio interviews, or simply lots of photographs, for instance. Stop taking baby steps and realize your dreams concerning these sweet animals!" Good luck, Claudine! From now on, YOU will be the advice-giver!
