Coco Puff entered the shelter as a local Animal Control transfer back in May ’16. She was collected as “found at large” in an apartment parking lot. AC had been there prior after receiving an earlier report of someone seeing a ferret outside but were not able to locate said ferret. I can only hope that Coco Puff is the same ferret and there wasn’t another one out roaming around. No owner came forth to claim her so she entered our adoptable group.
She is a dark sable baby girl around a year old. I swear she has rubber bands for little legs! And true to her mustelid family tree, is a lover of water. She can dig out all the water in the bowl in under 5 minutes!
Ferrets love to play. Ferrets love to sleep. Ferrets love to eat.
