Hello! My name is Izzy
I am housetrained, not good with kids, and not good with small animals.
For adoption through Kindness Matters Ferret Rescue - Izzy is a silver female ferret, approx. four years old, litter trained, descented, spayed. She is a teeny little ferret. Preference will be given to a home where she does not have to be confined to a cage much or at all.
Izzy is very active and loves to check out everything. She has a great little personality. She loves to sleep curled up in a big blanket. She also loves to play in the tubes.
She is in good health, other than having the beginning stages of adrenal disease. This is when a tumor grows on the adrenal gland. Most ferrets will get this in their lifetimes. This is not deadly for the ferret unless left untreated. Treatment is a melatonin implant every four months. She got one in December and will need the next one in April. I do the implants for $45. She can also have adrenal surgery, which is $258 through the rescue at Bartow County Animal Hospital in Cartersville. This removes the adrenal gland and the problem. I will pay $90 of the surgery cost.
Izzy's a little on the thin side. That's probably from being so active. I feed her a soup mixture twice a day to keep weight on her.
She can be a little aggressive with other ferrets sometimes, more out of fear because she's so small. So, she's better off in a home without other ferrets. She's also better in a home without young children.
Adoption fee $20. Adoption fees help pay rescue vet and food bills. She does NOT come with a cage. I have cages for sale for pretty cheap. She does come with enough food and soup for two weeks, sleep sack, Ferretone and ear wash. Other ferret supplies for sale cheap: water bottles, harnesses, sleep sacks, hammocks, litter pans, Ferretone, ferret food, and much more.
I'm all about ferret education. I want every ferret owner to know as much as they can and every potential ferret owner to know enough to help them decide if this is the right pet for them.
