My name is Willow, I'm the darkest one in the front. That is my very bestest friend Chyna laying beside me. I really didn't care for any of the other kids here until I met Chyna. We discovered right away that we had so much in common that we became the bestest friends ever.
I came to HOFA when I was just a baby straight from the pet store. I know that isn't the way it usually works but in my case there was no other way. Read on and I will try to explain as best I can.
I was a tiny baby who hadn't been at the pet store very long so I was still pretty scared. I also had not been handled very much yet either. I will admit that I was kinda nippy but I didn't mean to hurt nobody, honest.
Anyhow one of the young boys who worked there decided to hold me for some reason, I'm not sure why. I guess he didn't know ferrets very well and wasn't expecting it when I nipped him. It wasn't hard but I must have scared him because he threw me against a wall. The store had me see the vet because after he thew me I couldn't move my back legs. I heard the vet say that I had a broken back and I
should be put to sleep because I would never walk again. I tried to tell them that I wasn't sleepy yet! But before I could, one of HOFAs foster parents who worked there said if they would let him, that he would take me to HOFA to care
Well, they finally said okay. WHEW!
So after taking me home with him he called HOFA right away and they came and got me. After going through a couple steps I came here to live with my Foster Mommy.
I am so thankful that he was there that day because my Foster Mommy loves me so much. She even found Chyna so that I would have a bestest friend all my very own.
I owe her so much that what I would like for Christmas are things that will make it easier for her to care for me.I try so hard to make it to my potty box but sometimes I will be playing with my friend and forget until it's too late. So I think puppy pads or a gift card to get them with would be a great gift. Don't you?
She also has to stop and wash my bedding all the time. It would be nice if I could have a couple more hammocks and/or sleepy sacks so she doesn't have to work so hard.
Chyna really thinks that Ferretone is yummy. Could you please maybe put in a bottle of it for her? I mean if it's not too much? Oh and a few toys that we could play with together? We really like small soft cuddly things too.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you.
They called me Willow because Willows bend but they don't break. Because even though my back is broke, Nothing will ever break my spirit.
