Nicholas
 
Nicholas Arriving at the shelter in April ’13 with the name “Cage”, we quickly learned he would prefer to be called “Nicholas”. Who were we to argue?
Nicholas will turn 3 in Feb ’14. He is a beautiful chocolate boy that was a bit of a brute in the beginning but has learned his *Miss Manners* lessons very well. He loves to play, enjoys life and will often cuddle with his human. He is a 'puppy dog' and will follow his human from room to room. When you rub him he starts getting 'fuzzy tail' and starts to war dance, first in one spot then like a hot air balloon that's had its tether cut, then off he bounces, fuzzy tail straight up in the air dooking loudly the entire time!
Nicholas has a wonderful appetite and enjoys eating a mixture of Totally Ferret Active, Drs. Foster & Smith Signature Series Premium Ferret Diet, Zupreem (not the grain free), 8in1 Crunchy Ultimate, Natural Gold Hi-Pro Lo-Carb Ferret food, & Chicken Soup for the Kitten Lovers Soul. He LOVES FerreTone, Vivify, & N-bones. A gift of any of those or a gift certificate to any of the following online stores would be greatly appreciated: Dr.s Foster & Smith, the Ferret Depot, or Ferret dot com.

Donations toward Nicholas’ continuing medical care & vaccine updates can be made directly to our Veterinarians at the Roanoke Animal Hospital, 2814 Franklin Rd., Roanoke, VA 24014. We are also an S.O.S. member shelter and tax deductible donations can be made thru them to us (http://www.supportourshelters.org/SOS1.html).

The BLFSH has been serving the SW & portions of Central VA since 2005. We network with other shelters that may be geographically closer to the ferret in need than us. The same holds true for adoption requests
We're see a large number of Insulinomic ferrets coming into the shelter. Our Veterinarian, Dr. Mark Finkler is very active in looking for proactive treatment for ferrets and we are hoping to see some new advances in Insulinoma treatment as what has been found in Adrenal treatments.
Vet Bills Can Be Paid At:
Dr. Bridget Hickman & Dr. Mark Finkler

Nicholas has a Santa.
