Little Sage came in as a transfer from Rockbridge SPCA in September ’16. She was very scared in the beginning & while she never bit, she stayed in her sleepy sack not wanting to play. Luckily she has gotten over that & now enjoys the companionship of ferrets, cats, & human alike. Sage is a Blaze Sable with the sweetest face ever! We guesstimate her age as around 8 months. She has started being more outgoing & playful. She has a chipped canine that our Veterinarian has determined does need to be removed. That will be scheduled as soon as funds are available.
Ferrets love to play. Ferrets love to sleep. Ferrets love to eat.
