oysters down to a Science

 Violet looked down at her best engineer, who was doing the finishing touches on his latest project” so Fergus your sure this will work?”

the little Ferret looked up, grabbing his spectacles as they tried to slide off his slender muzzle “yes miss, as long as the water in the tanks is kept circulating, those oysters will do just fine, well that and the salinity is kept right, and the proper amount of food is provided, and….”

Violet raised a paw ” yes,yes Fergus i know, I’ve read your little manual, all 316 pages of it “

the ferret tugged on his muzzle, blurring the line where grease and mask met ” just being careful miss, if you want these oysters to keep,and continue to taste like Owl Harbor oysters, then everything has to be kept at that standard,your still getting sea water from the shoals there?”

the Rabbit Moreau nodded “yes Fergus we pump up 5,000 gallons of it every time we arrive at the harbor,as well you know, the locals think we use it as ballast,”

Fergus waved his paws ‘yes,yes, i know miss, but you know me cautious to a fault, and i hate failure ” the ferret turned back to the tanks ” well Miss give them a week and they’ll be ready to sell “

violet laced her fingers together “perfect”

      They go from about 3″ to 14″ inches.  So unless you’re a very small animal


      (And, yes, I know that I just opened myself up to a lawsuit from the A. A. Milne estate.)
