Default New firsts for Gemma - harness and bike ride!

Gemma had a big day today. I ordered a hamster/ferret harness for her last week and it was just too small around the chest, and so today I decided I may as well try and alter it rather than let it go to waste (I have NO sewing skills whatsoever). But, I successfully removed and reattached the velcro and made the strap about 1.5 inches longer with some terrible hand sewing! Woohoo! Go me! Lol.

I was so happy that I got the harness to fit, because then we could take her outside on the leash with it and also use it to strap her in for her first bike ride, which she really enjoyed! She's so well behaved in her basket. Here are some pics:







We rode all the way to my boyfriend's mother's where Gemma met her two cats. She seemed to be really interested in them, but they ran from her, lol. She still doesn't like walking on the leash very much, but she's improving. I can't really walk her a lot since she hasn't had her second vaccines yet. But I put her down for a few minutes on the grass yard behind the apartments to give her a taste of walking on the harness. She did so much better than when I tried to walk her on her collar.

Sorry for my super long post. We had such a great day! Now she's totally wiped out and sleeping on the couch next to me.

That bike basket with gem a is the cutest thing she looks so comfy in it. Way to go fixing that harrness so it would fit was genius. It looks really nice on her and it looks like it fits her perfectly good for you way to go mom. Wow in the picture of her in the basket you can really see the blue in her she has allot of it maybe she will end up being blue when she grows up they do change color that's for sure Charlie used to be so dark with tons of Sableing and now he's more fawn he still has quite a bit but not nearly as much as he had when I first got him Gemma seems to be getting more blue as she gets older.

It's awesome that they are so good in their baskets! I really thought she was going to try to jump out or she'd be terrified, but she was totally calm. She actually got excited whenever we started going down a hill. It was so cute. Going to have to make it a daily thing for Gemma too!

She was surprisingly comfy and calm. She really loved it.

Thank you! I didn't think I'd be able to do it but figured it was worth a shot anyways! I haven't sewn in so many years, not since I was really young, like 14.

Yeah, I know! She does look very blue. I love seeing how she changes. Glad I'm taking lots of pics to document it!
