8653-Deuce-crop-300Deuce came in with Karma and it would be nice if he could stay with his sister. Deuce is a lively boy, eternally underfoot. He wants to be right there, whatever you are doing. We have to be very careful not to step on him because he tends to run right under your foot as you are taking a step. He’s very curious and wants to see what you are doing.

Deuce originally came into the shelter in October 2011. He and his sister, Karma, were surrendered because the owner had very bad allergies to the ferrets. They’d originally been owned by someone else who would never let them out of the cage. So this person took them and discovered they were allergic. Three days later they were adopted. This owner kept them until this January (2013) when she brought them back (along with three other ferrets) because of a serious depression that was making it impossible to care for the ferrets.


Despite being neglected in his early life, Deuce is an extremely sweet and loving ferret. His wide-eyed innocence is amazing; he seems to think the world is just a perfectly wonderful place. In his last home, he played with the owner’s small dog, and especially enjoyed the tunnels and rice dig box. He likes N-bones and Peanut Butter flavored Bandit treats. He’s been known to nip a little when he’s very excited, but you can tell he isn’t being mean, just a little too enthusiastic.

8624-Kringle-crop-300Kringle came in with Kisses (can you tell they were Christmas presents?). He is small for a male, but his personality and determination make up for it. He’s almost as small as some females, but you won’t notice as he’s flying through the air, stealing toys, and running around like a maniac. So far he seems delighted to play with any other ferret we try him with but stands up for himself and won’t take any guff.

His mom had to give him up due to a personal illness making her unable to care for the ferrets. It would be nice if he could stay with his buddy, but he does get along with other ferrets. Kringle will sometimes nip when he’s excited and playing. He just needs a little gentle training and lots of time outside the cage. He was well cared for and fed the best food, so he may be healthier in the long run than some ferrets. He was introduced to frozen rodents (whole prey) and will eat kibble, raw, Wysong Archetype-1 and whole prey. [Whole prey is a little inconvenient to feed, but it does wonders for keeping their teeth clean and raw is actually better for them. Most ferrets won’t eat whole prey unless they’d been introduced to it as a baby. Feeding whole prey will actually help cut down on nipping because it gives them an approved outlet for chomping on things.]

At the shelter he is eating mostly EVO dog little bites (don’t have a heart attack — it is a SUPER high quality food with 42% protein, 22% fat and the first five ingredients are turkey, chicken, turkey meal, chicken meal and potato with NO grains). Sometimes we mix in a little Marshall’s or 8in1 when it is donated, but the biggest part of the mix is the EVO. EVO recently had a recall due to salmonella (which is more dangerous to the people handling the food than it is to ferrets), and it might be hard to find. We do have some for sale at the shelter, at least for now.

Other good foods are Orijen kitten, Blue Wilderness, Wellness CORE … look for high protein with meat in the first few ingredients with little or no grains (corn, wheat, soy). (And of course frozen mice, Wysong Epigen-90, and Wysong Archetype-1)

8617-Kisses-crop-300Kisses came in with Kringle (can you tell they were Christmas presents?). She is a boisterous little girl who loves playing with other ferrets, pouncing on ferrets, humans and toys alike, and running through the tubes. Her mom had to give her up due to a personal illness making her unable to care for the ferrets. It would be nice if she could stay with her buddy, but she does get along with other ferrets.

She has a cute little light-colored patch of fur on the top of her head that likes to stand up a bit. It sort of makes a natural “mohawk”.
