Mild mannered and curious little boy - having trouble integrating into a larger group of ferrets largely because he just doesn't know how to stand up to the rougher guys. Really likes people and is easily bored in his cage (which results in some vigorous re-arranging of contents). Needs someone who lots of time and attention to give.

This precious pair are full of energy and ferrety mischief. Not the tidiest with the litter box (they like to roll it) but endlessly amusing and very sweet. Integrate well with other ferrets and pets.

Matrix

Matrix is a typical young ferret - full of energy and curiosity. She gets easily depressed if confined to her cage for long stretches of time and needs a loving and patient person (and business) to teach her the ropes about interacting politely with humans and other ferrets. We are working on some nipping issues with her and hope to integrate with her with some of the new kids who arrived on the same weekend. Perfectly capable of very sweet kisses - particularly if ferretone is involved!

If it doesn't involve running it isn't worth doing!!! The only way to keep him still long enough for a picture was to pop him in the sink with some ferretone to distract him. This baby boy is in perpetual motion - he runs, he jumps, he wrestles - hard to catch him with his feet on the ground and he dooks and dances up a storm. Surrendered with his little sister Ginger who is just as sweet and lively this pair must be adopted together.

This trio must stay together - Eddie the eldest(light sable male) loves human attention and really wants to engage people in his play time. Spike the second male (dark sable)is a little more independent but also a supper sweet boy - he likes people. Leeloo - the little girl is of course the adventurer in the group more likely to strike out on her won to explore and less concerned about what her brothers are doing.

Transfer in from Gatineau SPCA - this little girl is super sweet and has the most exquisite manners. She hates to be untidy and stops whatever she is doing to groom herself if she gets messy. Severely underweight - we will use her time in quarantine to get her back to a healthy weight.

Stevie is a sensitive little guy - sometimes overwhelmed by the more boisterous boys in the group. He loves people and has strong potential for being a lap ferret. Loves his outside of cage time and checks in frequently to see what the humans are up to as he goes about his "ferrety" business.

Missy

 
 
  Missy
 
 
Transfer in from Ontario Ferret Rescue - Missy is reported to have biting issues. She seems nervous around people and is very tense when picked up or handled but we are working with her and so far no bites. She is healthy, curious and alert and dooks happily to herself when she is out playing. She likes stashing toys and is probably frustrated by the limited spaces currently available in the quarantine area.

This super sweet boy may just mature into a serious cuddlebug lap ferret. Sweet and playful he seems to enjoy the company of people more than other ferrets. Currently out with our gentle group without any conflicts.

Fanny is an intrepid explorer and absolutely fearless. She actually wandered into someone's home through an open and introduced herself by climbing unto the head of the sleeping homeowner. Fanny loves, loves, loves to be out of her cage and in motion. She also seems to have a fondness for stuffed toys. We are trying to teach her some ferret manners like be gentle when nipping toes (and fingers); poop in the litter box (don't sleep in it) and not on the floor.

Sweet little girl found wandering in someone's backyard and turned into SPCA. Hallie was frightened and withdrawn when she arrived but changed completely on Woody's arrival. Given that they were picked up within 24 hours of each other in the same area we suspect the introduction was really a reunion and these two must stay together. Hallie has the softest coat and the most lovely ruby eyes. She is playful and energetic - loves stuffie toys and is a serial stasher. A little issue with toe nibbling but we are working on it. She makes up for it by being very, very tidy with her litter habits.
