Changes and more changes still

Ok ... again, I am sorry for slacking on daily posts. There is a LOT going on.

I have been working on getting the names to match across google with the registeted business name. Google seems to be having issues with the change .... too recently changed .... dumb typo ... oh well, it will get sorted yet.

More meetings have gone on .... and hopefully that means we are getting closer to the needed funding. We have been told to submit fpr the smaller amount aka "event funding" so we can be covered for immediate needs, like the 2 needed terrariums and stuff for them, lighting, and the upcoming expo, as well as gecko food and supplies and more. It involves a lot of paperwork, and a lot of time. Hopefully it will pan out and Katt's Kritters can be one more step closer to reality.

The fun (so to speak) right now is budgeting ... bills .... and finding a larger space to live in that we can afford. Now thats the trick .... I need to find a way to pull in more revenue so we can do that.

Well fans, errands and more paperwork tomorrow .... watch for the GECKO GURU posts and pics .... check the sales ... enter the contest .... and watch for a survey soon too!

September 19 2016

Once again, I failed to keep up the daily blogs. I will get better ... promise!

Lets see .... so far I have gotten 3 females for the upcoming breeding season, assuming the males are ready too. I do still want to get a dark chocolate colored female but that will wait. Once I get a full and complete weight check of all the cresties, I can start to plan who gets paired with who. Of course I do still need 2 more full sized tanks ... Ruby and Lily are in desperate need of proper space.

On the paperwork for the biz side of things, that is takimg its toll on me. I am getting stressed out over trying to get it all done, which then triggers my anxiety and negative self-talk.  I will get through it though .... am too stubborn and determined to make this a reality.

I am not expecting it to be my main income, but I am not gettimg the time I need to get Poser projects done. That too will happen when things get sorted. We have 2 meetings tomorrow, so hopefully some funding will come soon ....

Sweet dreams!

September 13 2016

Wow ... sorry ... dropped the ball on the daily posts ... but things HAVE been crazy.

Well the start-up funding came in, and enabled the business to become a  fully registered business, and get female geckos for the upcoming breeding season.

On the trip to the Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo in Mississauga, I got to meet up with a few folks I had only talked with online, and Northern Gecko (my FAVE store for needed stuff and awesome geckos) was having a buy one get one .... so when I picked up the gecko they had been holding for me, I also got another. Looks like she also has a full pinstripe and dark coloring.  So there we go ... all set for the upcoming season, as long as we can control the heat and humidity better.

The next business meeting will be on Wed the 14th, so hopefully a bit more fundimg for covering the costs of getting a table at expos. We shall see ... more to post after...

Love to all from Katt's Kritters!

Sept 3 2016

Well ... here we are again ....

I sold Alex today to a young woman who was seeking a red gecko. She had a loupe and was able to help ID the gender on a few of the babies, which was cool. I really need to get one of those loupes .... maybe at the CRBE next weekend.

Not a lot to post ... long day ... and back is hurting .... def going to be an early night .... company tomorrow before noon ....

September 2 2016

Looks like I missed a couple days .... sorry ....

Let's see .... today's biz fun was getting a separate account set up at the bank that will strictly be used for Katt's Kritters activity. Such fun being an adult ... right?

I updated a bunch of the pages with some progression pics for the babies. It was interesting to learn what photos I had in one place but not in the place I needed them to be in ... LOL That was quickly remedied. I will try to get to more of the pages tomorrow.

From now until the end of day on Sept 15th, all listed babies are $15 off ... so I will see if that helps get the ball rolling.

I will be picking up Lana (female) on the 10th ... and I am so excited. She should make for some nice babies.

Well it;s been a long day (again - might be why I missed posting a couple days there) ... so that's about all I got for this ...

Luv to all from the Kritter zoo!
