I got a phone call early this morning from my next door neighbour about a ferret in her garden. Apparently the poor girl had been in the garden since 5.30am being chased by the neighbours westie and she couldn't catch it because she's in a wheelchair.
Well.... this ferret is the sweetest thing ever We just got her back from the vets. She is apparently only about 3-4 months old and is very small and sweet but very healthy. She must have been used to being handled as she's very friendly and tame and begs for our attention!
We've had her scanned for a chip (no luck) but we let all the vets and rescue centres in the area know we've found her, so if someone's missing her they'll hopefully be able to trace her. But in the meantime, what should I do with her?? I have set up a big cage for her with lots of things to do and given her some kitten food (only thing we had in!) and water. What type of things do ferrets need?? I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all as I never imagined I'd have to take care of a ferret
