Sugar and Spice came to the rescue in August 2012. My friend Amy owns a pet supplies store. (no animal sales what so ever! Just supplies) A coupe came in and asked her if she wanted two ferrets. She said no but got their info in case she found someone who did want the ferrets. So in comes our friend Brenda and Amy tells her about it. Brenda e-mails me and asks me if I have room. I say yes and we make plans of her taking the ferrets and me coming to get them as soon as I was able. Brenda lives over 2 hours away.. She made contact with the previous owners and got the ferrets that day. Now I don't know all the details but from my understanding the people were weird an knew nothing about ferrets. These people inherited the ferrets from a passing relative but also have ferrets of their own. These people were shocked that Brenda put her fingers through the bars of the cages. They were shocked to see a ferret playing outside of the cage. Remember I said these people have ferrets of their own! Brenda talked more with the people getting as much info she could without showing how upset she was over the condition of the ferrets they brought her. It was said these 2 girls were not pretty enough for the former owners to keep! :( Brenda and her hubby brought me the girls a few days later. She felt they needed to be with me sooner. When I first saw the girls I quickly found out why. I started crying but quickly composed myself. The former owner said the girls names are Beauty and Beast. Later named Sugar and Spice.
Sugar has adrenal adrenal disease and had you nasty gross growth on her face hence why she was named Beast. The growth was cancerous but our vet feels she removed it all. Sugar is currently on Lupron shots.
Her cage mate Spice is clearly adrenal with bald spots and thinning fur as well as a swollen vulva. She had a very bad urinary tract infection upon arrival. She also is currently on Lupron shots.
Both girls are now doing very well and would love to get deslorelin implants as soon as they can be afforded.
