This is Miss Jazzy a quiet, calm and patient little girl who is the biggest sweetie around. She has a habit of sleeping so deeply she is extremely hard to find in a room full of other ferrets. She also has been blessed with a lovely expressive face that is very hard to resist.
Not long after arriving at the shelter we came to the realization that she is deaf. Which is part of why it is so hard to find her sometimes, she just does not hear us calling to her. That, combined with her deep sleep habits, means you pretty much have to tear the room apart to find her to give her medicine if she is sound asleep.
This beautiful little girl came to us on a cold winter day, when we arrived to pick her up in the pet store parking lot her owners actually handed her still wet little body out the car window and proceeded to try to drive away as quickly as possible!!!!!! I could not get my coat open fast enough to stuff this little girl inside where it was warm. She proceeded to snuggle into my coat soaking up my body heat and she proceeded to totally and completely steal my heart.
Jazzy is a permanent resident here as we do not usually adopt out ferrets. She is currently taking lupron shots as she does have adrenal disease, and has had urinary tract problems, which are being treated with some all natural meds to keep it from happening again.
Jazzy is free roam in a penned off room and gets along reasonably well with other ferrets. She eats soup, most ferret foods but turns her nose up at treats other than N-bones. She happily runs and plays in tubes, tunnels and playmats. She is seems to be on her own schedule, and no one will wake her up until she is darn good and ready
