Our AC has been having problems today and Farrah does NOT like it at all. Thankfully I was able to stay home and keep her downstairs where it’s cooler because the downstairs AC unit is functioning fine, but it just scares me to think that what if I wasn’t home? Farrah probably would’ve died…
OH NO! I hope Farrah is doing better. I like to freeze water bottles and slip and slip them into socks and put them in the cage during the summer for the ferrets. I also like putting ice cubes in their water bowl, so they have a nice cold water, which seems to help too.
That’s a great idea, thanks! I’ll go do that right now :) Our AC is finally fixed so I won’t have to worry about it breaking down anytime soon. Whew.

Farrah probably would’ve died because of the heat since the AC broke so unexpectedly. D:
I’m just so thankful that I caught it just in time. Farrah is safe in her cage downstairs soaking up all of the cool air conditioning while Jordan and I get to suffer in the heat upstairs. Haha. She’s a spoiled little princess, that’s for sure.
I just hate thinking about those ferrets that are forced to sleep in cages outside. I remember when I was about 12, I had a friend that had 2 ferrets that stayed outside. Her dad didn’t like them so they eventually died probably due to weather. It’s just so upsetting to me. I hope nobody keeps their babies outside in the heat this summer. If you can’t keep them indoors and spoil them, don’t have them at all.
Just thought I would rant about my extreme scared-ness today.
I hope everyone’s fuzzies are doing great! And keep those less fortunate in your thoughts.
Kayla looks so sweet! She’s an adult female with adrenal that’s being treated with a deslorelin implant. I’ve looked at her before but I’m sure that’s why she’s unfortunately not been adopted out yet. Poor baby. I would be able to give her a perfect home, I’m just hoping that Farrah isn’t too rowdy for her D: I guess we’ll find out this weekend!
Sorry my first post seemed so frantic. Haha. I was worried!
Unfortunately, I can’t leave a whole room for her to roam around by herself all day at the moment. But I’m going to work on that this weekend.
Also, I think I’ve decided that for the next couple weekends I’m going to go down to the Carolina Pet Rescue and bring Farrah so she can meet and play with a new fuzzy, and if they get along I’ll adopt! I say next couple weekends because I don’t think she’ll get a connection with one on the first visit. Oh geez, I sound like one of those obsessive ferret ladies. xD But until then, her cage will be filled with toys and hopefully all will be well tomorrow. She’s just a little brat and she won’t be too happy that she’s not getting her way :(
On Friday I’ll be doing a “working interview” at our local veterinary office to see if I make the cut as a kennel tech. However I’m almost positive I’ll get it, the manager told me to be very confident so I think that’s a sign :) The only problem I have is that Farrah, who’s so used to being free all day long until bedtime will have to go from 7:30-5pm in her cage almost every day now. I’m a little worried because this will be a huge change for her. I’m considering getting another little ferret for her to keep her company but I NEED them to get along right away. Ahhh I’m so stressed out ;-; There is 100% no chance that I’ll give her away. I will MAKE something work out! I know there are plenty of ferret owners who have full time jobs, right? D:
I tried to send her back to the breeder on the grounds of “she’s deaf, deaf ferrets are hard to sell” but since the breeder (Marshall) doesn’t do hearing tests on their ferrets, there was “no proof” so I wasn’t able to make those “assumptions”.
I bought Farrah the cutest little pink cupcake collar the day we got her because I couldn’t wait until she was big enough to wear it. And she really needs it since she moves so silently around the room.
But as soon as I put that thing on her she flips out, shakes it off, and then proceeds to “kill” it. Maybe I can hold her still long enough to take a picture with her in it because she looks so cute!
But anyways, does anyone here regularly keep a collar on their babies? And if you do, how did you get them to keep it on in the first place?
