Amarette Hi, I am what they call a "special needs" ferret. I have something wrong with me in a neurological sense. The vet thinks I had a concussion when I was small and that's the reason I'm like this. Shelter mom says I look like I'm prancing when I walk because my right foot goes up really high every time I take a step. If someone surprises me, my legs get stiff, my head pulls to the side and I fall down. I don't know why i do this and I can't stop myself from doing it. But I get right up and go back to playing. I am feeling better since I have been getting better food and loving care at the Hide-E-Hole. I really love the hard plastic "cat tunnel" toy and crinkly things.

In my photo, I am doing my best zombie immitation.

Please do not require a signature for package delivery as shelter mom has to be at work during the day. We have a locking bench where items can be secured. Dr. Wagner requests that monetary donations be sent directly to the shelter because his practice takes a cut. The shelter can always use food (Orijen Cat/Kitten Chicken, EVO Dog Little Bites, EVO Ferret, Wysong Archetype I, Wysong Epigen 90), gift cards for Giant Eagle (to buy paper towels, chicken to make soupies, laundry detergent, bleach, etc.), donations via PayPal ( and gift cards to Home Depot (where we get the stove pellet fuel we use for litter). We have enough sleep sacks but are low on hammocks and baby blankets (we had some "goat ferrets" here for a while who ate them…we have no idea why the hammocks tasted better than the sleep sacks).
