This pretty ball of white fluff is Aurora. She is a lovely dark eyed white also with a biting problem. She tends to do a grab, shake and hold for attention, which definitely hurts! Not surprisingly Aurora and Betsy enjoy being together and sharing stories of biting the people that handle them. . Aurora come in with another ferret who we lost to adrenal cancer, Fortunately she is a very friendly ferret who seems to fit in with any and all ferrets so she was not too lonely when her buddy went to the bridge.
She came here when her original owner was moving out of his parents home and because Aurora had a tendency to bite his mom she was not allowed to stay there any longer. Interestingly enough he is one of the rare few who checks back on the ferrets still. Even though he cannot have them he truly does miss them. Very loved ferrets, they had plenty of love but not a lot of other items. A couple of very dirty hammys in their cage along with pine shavings and inexpensive ferret food rounded out their belongings.
Aurora will sleep in blankets, hammy's and round doughnut beds, It does get chilly in the winter here, so warm materials are a plus. Not a picky eater, she eats a mix of ferrets foods, soup and really likes N-bones.
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.
Aurora has a Santa.
