Odie, aka Uncle Grandpa, is an elderly fellow with adrenal disease & Insulinoma, and a cataract in his left eye. We estimate he’s around 6 yrs old & has the hutzpah of a little kid! He’s a champagne boy with a canine attitude. His name suits him as he will follow you around just like a dog, tail straight up in the air as he trots along. I’ve seen him in the shower snorkeling in the water dish. He is such a goof ball & is so lovable!
Ferrets love to play. Ferrets love to sleep. Ferrets love to eat.
