These two are sooooo sweet. Bella is just adorable. She trots around the house with her fat little belly. She stands in front of the kitchen to let me know she wants soup. If she hears me in the ferret room, she’ll crawl out of bed and look up at me to beg for a treat. It’s just the cutest thing. She loves to be held and have her head rubbed.
Margot loves to wrestle with your hand. Her favorite thing is to hide stuffed toys in her special places around the house. She must have 20 toys hidden around the house. She gets so excited when she finds a toy to hide. Sometimes she gets so excited that she shakes it really hard, like she’s in the wild and trying to kill it! It just makes your heart melt.
It’s best they go to a home with no young children, loud noise, or active dogs.
Bella is a little over five years old. She has adrenal disease, which is very common in ferrets. It is not contagious. She has received a Deselorelin implant as treatment, which is good for a year. Other than that, she is a happy, healthy girl.
Margot is almost five. She has lymphoma, which is a type of cancer. It is not an aggressive lymphoma and she can easily live another two years. Sometimes her sinuses act up when she gets stressed. If that happens, she gets one drop of medicine in each nostril twice a day. It’s very easy to do and doesn’t have to be done very often.
These two deserve a wonderful home in their twilight years. They come with a cage that will need to be returned when you’re no longer fostering. They also come with soup they are used to eating every day, along with toys they like to play with and hammocks/bedding with their scent on it. The foster family will need to plan to buy food and some supplies for them to get started.
