Sweet Slinkey, also known as Stinky ferret came in as a trio of ferrets. We lost his brother over the summer to a mass in his abdomen, and his third cage mate tends to prefer other ferrets to his company so he has been put in with a couple of other ferrets who all get along great together and help keep each other warm and cozy. He is a very smart fuzzy who tends to listen closely for the door to open so he can quickly try and make his escape from the cage. The other ferrets may also try and make a run for it but he is almost always first. He is a super Playful, enjoying scooting and hiding the toys that he has around the room in little hidey holes. He also really likes to scoot empty water bottles around the room he will go round and round with them until he gets too tired to play any more. He does have an occasional tendency to like to sleep in his litter pan, along with Betsy and gets bathed a bit more often than I would prefer but he sometimes gets poo stuck on him!
Brought in having been eating Wal-mart food and without any treats, toys or bedding to call his own has now completely made himself at home here. He loves nap-sack type hammocks he can crawl into as well as blankies and the like, he will eat most treats and enjoys a daily dose of duck soup as well.
The items we can use most are the everyday items,
Paper towels (we go through tons of these)
laundry soap & fabric softner (again we use a lot with all the bedding)
Treats - N-bones & Bandits
Probiotic paste/gel (Drs. Foster and Smith, 30g equine)
Wood stove pellets (or a gift card so I can buy these from Menards or Lowes)
ferret lax for hairballs
chicken & turkey baby food
Poopin Pumpkin or cans of pure pumpkin
Any kind of high quality ferret or cat food, we make up a large mix of foods on a regular basis!
Gift cards to Ferret.com, Dr's Foster & Smith, Totally Ferret, Wal-mart, Sams & Menards
Basic supplies like food, litter and cleaning supplies and soup ingredients are most desperately needed right now. Funds are extremely short as my husband just had to undergo brain surgery. He was ill and out of work all November and will be out of work for several months leaving little money right now for the basic supplies we need most on a daily basis.
Slinkey has a Santa.
