Unfortunately lastnight one of our ferrets got outside, we have been doing everything we can think of to try to find him.

We posted a lost report on Humane Society's site (under cat O.o since there isn't a better option).  We put up posters, and have also brought his sister all around our building hoping he would smell her and come out.

If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions as to how we may find him, please let us know, we are pretty devistated

Thank you so much.

I have tried squeeky toys that he loves... We are right near Bayshore shopping center... He is mostly white/yellowish, with sable paws, heind end and tail... fairly large guy, he answers to Buddy, he's very friendly, but probably pretty scared and i'm guessing hiding.
I also just thought of putting some Furotone all along our balcony (1st floor) hope he smells that and comes back.

Thank you again

Thanks so much to Tamara from Ferret Rescue Society for all of your help!!!  Because of you we have our baby back Smiley
The people that had him saw one of the flyers she put up for us called and sure enough it was him!!!

Sorry to hear about your lost baby.  Have you tried using squeeky toys to lure him out?  I would suggest you bring your posters to all the vets and pet stores in your area.  I sent a message to the Ferret Rescue board so they are aware.  Can you let us know what part of town he was lost in and what colour he is so we can send out a broadcast message?

Additional ideas:

Post Lost Ferret ads on free Ottawa advertising sites such as:

http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/

http://usedottawa.com/

http://ottawa.en.craigslist.ca/

May be try to put some peanut butter everywhere in your backyard. Ferrets can smell that from far!  

Put some ads in gaz station and all very public places. Ask all of your neighbors everybody have to know that you lost a ferret. When I got my ferret back, I was walcking on the street with him and people I didn't know was stoping me to say "hey, is it the ferret that was lost?!"

Also, check on kijiji in the lost/found section and put an ad there if nobody have reported him yet. Check also if he is not on sale... that's how I found mine...

Good luck
