Roman is super playful with other ferrets and with humans. He will chase you around the house. He loves to wrestle with your hand and arm. He must go to a home with another ferret. He must be let out of the cage at least twice a day and have at least five hours of play time each day.
Roman has adrenal disease, which 75% of ferrets will get in their lifetimes. It is not life threatening if treated. He has received a melatonin implant as treatment, which is good for four months. After that, he will need another implant ($40 at the rescue). Otherwise, he is very healthy. He has had both distemper vaccinations and been treated for fleas and ear mites. (Pet store ferrets still need two distemper vaccinations.)
Free to adopt. He does not come with a cage. The rescue has cages for sale from $40 and up, as well as nearly any ferret supplies you may need, including: food, water bottles, litter boxes, leashes, harnesses, shampoo, Ferretone, books, nail trimmers, toys, hammocks, sleep sacks, litter, flea supplies, deodorizing spray, cleaning supplies, and much more! Buying supplies from the rescue helps pay for rescue food and vet bills. ((He must go home with one month of food, so plan on buying food with the adoption, as well as any other supplies you may need.)
