Adrenal Ferrets at the Shelter

Posted by Donna Carlsen on August 23, 2015 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)

8/23/2015 ... There are seven ferrets who are currently ailing from adrenal disease. Three of them are currently receiving monthly Lupron shots - Luna, (who just lost her cagemate Aquilo), Gracie, and Sugar (the California rescue). The others are waiting for funds to purchase more of the medication. Ozzy is waiting for a donation of Lupron, as he is next in line to receive the injections. A tiny little girl named Loki came in, she is about 5 years old and is completely bald and is in dire nee...

Isis

Jules update on Isis:

Last night October 23, 2012 Isis passed away in her sleep.  She will be very missed.  We initially got her as a playmate for Aquilo.  But she spent most of her time yelling at him for being naughty.  He was always teasing her and play fighting when she just wanted to hang out and look at stuff.  It wasn't until Luna was brought into the mix that Isis really showed her personality.  Isis and Luna loved to play fight.  And Aquilo fi...

Garage Sale

Held another garage sale.  This time I only brought in $43.  I do my best to make every penny count.    ~Donna~

Garage Sale

Posted by Jules on October 8, 2012 at 3:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I figured since the sun isn't too hot that maybe I'd do better with a garage sale today.  Kinda bummed...only made $40.

I got on my sewing machine to try to make some ferret products and that went on the fritz too. 

I have hope.  I repainted the floor in the ferret's room and it is so pretty!  It is a lighter color, much harder to keep clean now!!  Messy ferrets...but I wanted to keep busy and I have a lot of projects waiting for me.    ~Do...

Luna

August 3, 2012:  A group of 5 ferrets came in dropped off by Matt & Jules.  Their names are Aquilo, Isis, Brigit, Orion and Luna.

September 19, 2012:  Luna went missing yesterday, but I found her sleeping underneath the linoleum in their cage!  It was hilarious, she popped her head outa nd scared me to death.  I thought that was so funny.  I don't know why she did that.  Maybe she was just being silly, or was trying to play hide and seek with me.&#...

Sistah Momma

September 18, 2012:  I noticed that my Sistah Momma has sudden hair loss, but she is pushing 8 years old now and is doing very well.  Her hair loss was sudden.  She's always been aggressive towards other ferrets but a sweetheart towards me.  Adrenal is so common in ferrets it makes my heart sick.    ~Donna~

Brigit

August 3, 2012:  A group of 5 ferrets came in dropped off by Matt & Jules.  Their names are Aquilo, Isis, Brigit, Orion and Luna.


September 17, 2012:  I spent some time with Brigit last night, and she was such a happy, playful bundle of ferret it was so funny.  She and Isis both enjoyed a bowl of soupy and had a great time playing.  No biting, no problems.  Brigit was a happy playful girl, jumping about and doing the ferret dance.  She ...

Runako

My Runako is balding with adrenal but he still gives me kisses and hasn't gotten aggressive with me or any of the other ferrets yet.  It's a case by case thing with these guys.  I love those kisses!    ~Donna~

Friend went to the rainbow bridge

Posted by Jules on September 7, 2012 at 2:35 PM Comments comments (0)

September 7, 2012:  I found Friend laying dead in his cage last night.  I had no idea.  Don't know what happened.  He was happy, healthy, no sign of anything wrong with him.  He just up and died.  I was so upset.  I was poking around and getting ready to let his group out (as I do every day) and noticed he was on the bottom which was so unlike him.  When I went to pick him up I was horrified.  It is so terrible that these little guys don't live ver...

Garage Sale

The garage sale brought in $110. A nice lady had donated things for this garage sale.  I will be planning another garage sale very soon, so will be taking more donations for that.  I will wait until the weather cools down a few more degrees.  It was way too hot and I was all by myself.     ~Donna~

On August 24, 2012 Casper had her surgery.  It cost $210.  The shelter continues to have a negative balance. Casper is doing great!  She healed fantastically and she is so happy that her tumor is gone!  And she's happy to have her stitches out!    ~Donna~

Computer Troubles

Well, my computer is fried.

I was putting a mailing list together with a flyer, was trying to plan a Flash Mob Dance fundraiser for the ferrets, a Halloween event and thinking of maybe even having a ferret Santa again this year. Now I will have to re-install my operating system but so much of my data will be erased.  I had been working on a nice new pamphlet too! And my printer is out of ink. We will survive.  It's all about the ferrets and we can figure out how to keep them h...
