This is Oscar! Oscar and his partner in crime Max arrived at the shelter with a little sister as well Due to the fact that they were teasing and torturing her until she cried for mercy we made the decision to try separating them. Keeping them in a cage next to her so they were close but keeping them from hurting her seemed to be the best option for everyone. Max and Oscar moved on with their lives and now seem content to play rough and tumble together while little Lucy has a couple of girls to play with that do not treat her badly. Oscar is a super friendly affectionate fuzzy, loving to beg for attention and time to play with you. At just a little over 2 years of age Oscar is fat, sassy and sweet. Unfortunately their love of attention and perhaps their desire to dig and destroy cage bedding accounts for their original owners giving the up to us. Driving them in to us in a cardboard box they arrived with nothing but each other to remind them of home. Adjusting quickly however we quickly found that Oscar loves people and loves attention! He is bright eyed and prepared to beg for attention at a moments notice.
These 2 are caged together and could use a few big hammocks in their cage. I have a couple bigger ones but with washings and the way they like to dig in the hammocks the extras would be welcome.
Eating cheap cat food or Walmart food was what these guys have been eating all of their lives.
Oscar will hide N-bones and eat a few Bandit treats and he likes Purina one kitten and Marshalls food.
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.
Oscar has a Santa.
