My name is Winston.
I know it's a funny name for a ferret but everyone says it suits me so I am happy with it.
The Foster Mom who picked me up when I was surrendered had driven right out to get me as soon as she had heard that I was living in an outdoor chicken coop and that I was not allowed in the house even for a little while.
I always wondered why they even brought me home from the store if no one was going to cuddle with me or play games with me. The kids would come out to the chicken coop to play for awhile but after a few weeks the only time I ever saw anyone was when they would bring me food and water and clean up a bit. I tried so hard to make them laugh when they came out in hopes that they might stay and play with me but they always had something else they had to do. After a while I just got used to the way things were and kinda just gave up.
When they told me that they had to get rid of me I was really scared but after the lady who picked me up took me to her home and actually took me in the house I was so excited that I forgot all about being scared. I stayed with her for about a week, until I was cleared for adoption.
That was when my new Foster Pop came and took me home with him. I prayed all the way there that I would be allowed in his house too. When I got there I couldn't believe my eyes. He had some ferrets of his own. Also there was a cage for me that had alot of stuff in it to cuddle up in. And guess what? Yep! It was inside his house with his ferrets.
That is where I am at now. I really like my Foster Pop. He likes to snuggle as much as I do. Also, he plays with me all the time. I think he feels bad for the life I had lived before now and is trying to make up for it.
I don't really need too much for Christmas, but what I would really like are some soft, cuddly sleepsacks of my very own to cuddle and sleep in until Foster Pop gets home from work.
Since coming here to stay with my Foster Pop and the other kids I have found out how much fun it is to play fetch the little jingle balls. I haven't quite gotten the knack of bringing them back to Foster Pop yet though.It's alot more fun to run with them and hide them from him.
I have just one more thing on my list that Foster Pop had me write. It is a bottle of Ferretone. It is so yummy.
Okay, well that's all I could think of that I want for Christmas.
