Peanut is a beautiful cinnamon coated big boy with a healty appetite. He and his sister Sweetie came in to the shelter together. At over 3 lbs he towers over dainty little Sweetie. When his previous family dropped them off it was obvious that they had been well treated and well fed, as his coat gleamed and there was no lack of fat on this boy! Unfortunately he has been in the shelter for a couple of years, he suffers from re-occuring bladder infections and has to be watched and treated when they occur.
Recently his tail has gone naked and there are some thinning patches of hair accross his back and shoulders. Currently an itchy and scratchy fella we have started him on lupron shots and he is due to get an implant soon as we are able to order a new batch.
Peanut is free roam in the ferret room, he plays in tubes and play mats as long as they are a fairly good diameter, as these shoulders need some room to move! He sleeps a lot in speep sacks, and occasionally a open cat size bed. nHe does enjoy romping through crackle sacks and things that make noise, like jingle balls or crochet eggs.
He likes most treats and food, not a picky eater at all!
Thanks for looking at Peanut, he will enjoy all that you choose to send.
