I love the corner of Nebraska Humane Society where all the warm fuzzies are! Mr. Snuggles lives there. So did Dennis the Budgie (I heard he may have been adopted yesterday – yay!) Just past those guys is a small room with the rodents. They are all super cute. I only got good pictures of the gerbils, so I will show you those guys. Also there are mice, rats and sometimes hamsters. Leda Frost, who volunteers in the small pet corner, offered some tips and fun facts about the little pets!
Pet tips from Leda, NHS Small Pet Volunteer…
- Freezing bedding for 24 hours before use kills mites.
- Pine and aspen bedding should never be used – irritates the sensitive respiratory systems of small pets.
- Be extremely careful when handling rabbits because of their easily hurt backs.
- Hiccups and reverse sneezes are not uncommon for ferrets.
Be sure to tell Leda “hello” if you go to see the small pets! I know she spends extra time socializing and handling and loving them during their time at Nebraska Humane Society.
