How to Attract Kittens

Who doesn’t love a visit from one of our favorites, the Kitten! These little cuties are easy to attract and fun to watch!


Start by getting a cow from your local farmer or garden shop, then fill it with milk. Let the milk warm up while you sit on your favorite block of wood.

Keep up the great Flashback Friday submissions, peeps! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the memories!


“This is my Nana when she was around 16 or 17, in the late 1930s. This was taken while she was growing up in Germany and had to do an obligatory  “Landfrauenjahr” (year of land service). Usually girls were sent to work on a farm – hence the animals! She hated her year there, but found joy in looking after the animals. She survived WWII and emigrated to Canada, where I’m writing this from! I love your website – it makes me so happy inside!” -Britt.

The Flashback Friday submishe inbox is hopping lately! We always knew CO peeps were AWW-some.

“Since the Spring of 2000″, Motor City Ferrets nose a thing, or thousand, about rescuing ferrets…

But it all really started back in 1978…. :::waves magical wayback wand:::

1978 Summer
“That’s me in the photo, with the first ferret I ever met on a trip to Colorado. We stopped at a rest stop and the baby ferret and it’s owners were enjoying a rest on a lovely summer day. As I always did whenever a furry critters was nearby, I ran in for a snuggle – and of course my Dad was ready with the camera! I totally forgot about the encounter until my Dad presented me with the photo, enlarged and framed, about a year after I opened a ferret shelter (2001). Today I’m 42, and over the past 14 years I’ve rescued nearly 1000 ferrets.” -Nanci F.
