"In march of this past year, I became owned by a ferret. My best friend, who had two, called me one day and asked if I wanted a ferret. A friend of his, also with two of her own, had found one under a car in the parking lot. It had been snowing for a full week off and on (which is the harshest weather I have seen in my 5 years here) and the poor thing was cold and frightened. I said that I would of course take it in, and look after it untill an owner stepped foreward, or untill a week passed by and i officially adopted it. Dani'el brought me a scrawney, scraggly little girl, who was badly dehydrated. The first thing she did was walk right through the bars of the cage she was so thin! I have another friend with two elderly ferrets, and the little one I dubbed Koto looked just like Bandit, the older of the two. I assumed that Koto was an older ferret, and an escapee. I tried not to get attatched. Koto grew on me, and every day I had her she improved vastly, leading me to believe that her prior home had been neglecting her. Posters were put up, advertising her discovery, but no one stepped foreward. I cut my week short when I realized that not only would it hurt to part with her, but that I could not in good conscience let her go back to any home that would allow her to loose half her body weight through neglect! She was sweet, and well behaved, and I was hooked. I bought her all sorts of things and made her a vet apointment right away, still fearing that my time with her would be short. My wonderful vet told me, after her exam, that not only was Koto in perfect health, but she was less than a year old! I was overjoyed. And she has not only gained weight, but has actually grown longer. I do not know what could posess someone to neglect and abandon so sweet and young a pet, but I am glad she came to me. She now leads the life of an only ferret, though with three human pets and one big, sweet dog, and two little carpet snakes just her age living down the street, I'd say she has it pretty good. A tip for anyone who has a free roaming weasel like my Koto: if it picks a corner too small for a box (Koto picks the area behind doors) those disposible baking pans that you can get at the dollar store can be bent and shaped to fit anywhere. Koto actually prefurs my makeshift litter pans to the store bought ones because they have a shorter lip on them for easy backing up.A few dollars worth of baking dishes (or some take and bake deep dish pizzas) and a little spray paint and you can make a box to fit anywhere in your home!"
