Peek A Boo… I see you! Pet Finder's Less Adoptable Pet's Week

 

Well I guess having a name is better than a number but really what kind of name is Peek A Boo   for a boy?

So I can only say that I am playing the game Peek-A-Boo for now in Pittsburgh, PA and I would really like a good boy’s name along with a forever home.

I know there isn’t much about me okay there isn’t anything about me on the site and my picture isn’t the best.

I am sure all you ferret hooman recognize the maneuver that I am doing. Hey when ya gotta go ya gotta go.

So are you the hooman for me to play great games with like hide the sock, where’s the carpet shark, and hide and seek? I promise I’ll let you win once in awhile and reward you with lots of ferrety kisses.

I’ll also entertain you with my special weasel war dance moves that are designed to make you laugh.

If you or someone you know is looking for a special little boy to love in or around the Pittsburgh area won’t you let them know about me?

Thanks

Pet Finder Less Adoptable Pet Week: A Girl For All Seasons


Hi My name is Summer   and I am a 2 year old Dark Eyed White (DEW) girl. Right now I am calling New Arlington, NJ home until we can find the right forever hooman for me.

You see I need to find just the right hooman this time cause my first hooman spoiled me wif all these yummy sweet snacks and now I have something called Insulinoma. Once I was diagnosed wif this my first hooman took me to diz scary place called Animal Control and left me there.

I was lucky there was this really nice man there took the time to find my foster hooman’s place and she came and got me right away and while I love my foster hooman we both know I would be better off with just the right hooman of my own.

I have a sunny personality and a need for medication everyday for the rest of my life. So the perfect hooman for me knows about insulinoma and knows how to test my blood sugar so that I have a good record for the vet.

This hooman will also know how to give me my medication everyday and won’t be tricked into giving me those yummy snacks I crave.

I maybe little and have a medical condition but I have a lot of love to give to the perfect hooman. Are you that hooman?

Note: Summer is most likely on Prednisone and will need vet care more often than a ferret without insulinoma.

While Prednisone isn’t expensive finding a pharmacy that will fill a vet prescription can be time consuming. Ask your vet for a pharmacy they have dealt with before.

Insulinoma is a type of cancer that can shorten the lives of ferrets. With that said Summer is part of this weeks less adoptable pets because 1. She is a ferret and 2. She is considered special needs. Those two items would make her harder to place with the right person but I know the right one is out there just looking for a fuzzy to love.

Pet Finder's Less Adoptable Pet Week: Bennie and the Jet


Hi all I am Jet and my buddy is Ben and he doesn’t talk much.

Sorry there aren’t any cute photos of us just of what our feet looked like when we first came to Ferrets Unlimited Rescue better known as FURS.

Our first hooman abandoned us in an apartment in Windham,OH with an iguana.

We were stuck in our cage for such a long time that we were left standing in feces.

The person who first rescued us though that it was just caked on our feet so bad then when she tried peeling some off of Ben’s feet it left them bleeding.

Ben: It hurt a lot and my feet were really swollen.

Jet: Our first rescuer realized that our care was going to be more than they could handle so they brought us here to these nice people. After being examined it was determined that it wasn’t caked on poop it was these nasty little parasites called Scabies.

Well we were immediately put on antibiotics, inflammatory meds, and pain meds, and daily soaks in a antibacterial soap.

Well Ben got the pain meds because his feet were so bad. Because of this ordeal we weren’t up for adoption until now.

We are recovered from the scabies and we’re told that ferrets don’t get them often so we shouldn’t get them again ever.

I am a bit more out going then Ben here. He is a huge fraidy cat about being out of his cage and likes to find places to hide so he can let his bottle brush tail relax.

So we need a hooman that is understanding of Ben’s fears and help him work through them.

I am a fat boy who is all ferret.

So are you the right hooman for us or know someone gentle, soft spoken, and able to deal with high energy and a trembling ball of fur? Won’t you come check out the adoption process at Ferrets Unlimited and see if we can’t come home with you.

Ben: Please?

Note: Scabies is a parasite that burrows under the skin causing extreme itching and is more common in humans. With the right treatment the reoccurrence is almost never depending on living conditions.

Disclosure: I did pick these two because of the injustice done to them while in the care of an unkind human and the fact that they have survived what had to be a very painful ordeal means they have a lot to give to the right human.

I am getting no compensation other than the fact that I may be able to help them find a forever home.

I get no compensation for featuring ferrets on my blog from Pet Finder or the shelter that has the featured ferret.

Please pass the link on about these guys to anyone that might be interested and is the right kind of person to be their new hooman thank you.

Have a Chittering Good Day,

Jo

To those that have enjoyed posting Anomys. those days are over. I am now requireing that you at least have a name that I can respond to if the need should arise.

In references to the pictures that are on this blog this week. I am copying the url from the site its self so if the pictures are stock or owned by someone else I wouldn't know it.

With both things said. I must say that I blog about ferrets because they are my passion and those that have met me in real life know that is the truth. I am not an expert on ferrets just an owner that loves doing research to gain more knowledge that can be passed on to other.
I do reviews on different things and the opinions are always my own and at this time I get no monetary compensation for anything that is on my blog unless otherwise noted.

Pet Finder's Less Adoptable Pet Week: A Star in the Making


Hello Darlings I am Marilyn   from Missoula, MT and no there is no relation to Monroe that I know of.

I am considered one of the less adoptable pets by many because of my long sleek body and my pointed nose.

But then they do say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I am looking for the right hooman to be my personal assistant.

Just like Monroe I am a beautiful girl with one little flaw my tail has lost its hair but I am sure with the right treatment from a specialist it will grow back to match my fur coat.

Won’t you help me land the role of a lifetime: Queen of Hooman’s Heart? I am not a prima Dona I love cardboard boxes of all kinds and any bag that crinkles.

I’ll eat almost any snack as long as I get plenty of exercise to run off the calories. Okay I am very particular about where I sleep but then a star has to have her beauty rest.

Won’t you apply to be my personal assistant as I am sure we would be a perfect match.

Note: Marilyn’s hairless tail maybe an indication of Adrenal Disease and should be checked out by a licensed Ferret Vet. I am not a vet but one of the symptoms of Adrenal Disease is hair loss.

Country Boy

 

Hi all I am Garth and right now I am calling Mason City, IA home until I can wiggle my way into the right forever hooman’s heart. I isn’t big on cats and dogs and really would prefer der wasn’t any in my new farmstead.

I knows there isn’t a lot of information about me listed other than I am a boy and I don’t care for cats and dogs but I think that is because the hoomans here are just too busy with all dem other critters to sit down and write up something about me.

At least you can see how cute I am. I maybe just a hay seed to some but I know there has to be a hooman out there that needs the complete innocence I can provide while checking out every inch of my new forever farmstead. Won’t you let them hoomans know I am waiting right here for them.

Jumping Jack Flash

 

Hi there my name is Jack and I am living in Stewartville, MN and I am now looking for a forever home with someone who understands a ferret who has gone through major surgery to remove an adrenal gland.

My tail is still working on getting its hair back but I am sure it will be back to being full soon.

I am easy going so I would like to be in a home where there is one or two other mellow ferrets that I could cuddle up with when I get tired from all the jumping and running I am catching up on.

The right hooman would know just I need to stay healthy and know the perfect vet to take me to when I need a checkup.

With having the diagnosis of Adrenal I really should see the vet more often than once a year just to make sure I am not having a relapse or something else show up that could become really bad fast.

Are you the right hooman for me or know the perfect one then please come/send them to check me out and see if we are the perfect match.

Note: Jack wasn’t available for adoption until after his surgery. Because he is an adrenal survivor he is listed as special needs. Ideally he should be adopted by someone who has dealt with this disease and knows the reality of his survival rate could be lessened because of the chance he could develop tumors on his remaining adrenal gland.

Texan Looking For Love

 

Howdy all! I am JJ from Austin, TX. I am looking for a new homestead to call my own as my previous hooman made a mistake of not checking with her landlord before bringing me home to live with her. Before one of ya’ll decide I am just the gal for ya’ll please make sure I can live with you without the same problem.

Now if you own your own homestead and are ready to have a rodeo of a good time then I might just be the furry gal for you. I am a small barrel racer in the disguise of a long sleek young body and I have more energy packed inside of me than a raging bull.

I just know the right cowpoke for me is out there won’t you come check me out and see if we can raise the roof together with laughter?

Before adopting/buying a ferret make sure he/she will be a welcome guest where you live so that others don’t have the same fate as JJ here. Know if there is an extra deposit for pets and just what pets are allowed where you live.

Nurturing Paws Review




I received Nurturing Paws in the mail. This slim book is full of poems and essays written from the hearts of those who have had the opportunity to have animals in their lives.

Each of these poems and essays resonated in me as I read them. At the time I thought it might have been because of the nasty head cold I had along with my reaction to the cold medicine. Then after I read it a second and a third time I decided that it wasn’t the cold or medicine but the fact the words came from affection for each pet from the individual writers were true and they conveyed them well.

Many of the poems and essays are dedicated to dogs, cats, and birds but there are many other animals not represented such as rodents, reptiles, and of course my obsession, ferrets but that didn’t distract from my enjoyment of this book.

I read different poems to Manny and Marcuz and while Marcuz might not have heard the words he sat with his head against my throat while I read and Manny curled up in my lap and looked like he was reading along with me.

I’ve read to them before and if it isn’t interesting to them they get down and go play. So to me it was a good sign that they also were enjoying the book. We pet parents are allowed to believe what we want about our fur kids.

Nurturing Paws is a nice book to give as a gift to the pet lover, rescuer, caregiver, or anyone that loves poetry. The book is easy to read and you can start anywhere within the book. With each passage you will smile, cry, or get angry but in the end you feel that the writer’s emotion is genuine. Nurturing Paws can be found at Whispering Angel Books

Paw Rating: 5 a ferret’s treasure.

Disclosure: I was given a free copy of Nurturing Paws to review and received no other compensation. The opinion here is my own and may or may not be the same as yours.

Homeless Family of Four

We are a family four ferrets looking for a new forever home where love is in abundance and a hooman that understands what we need, want, and can give us the care and reassurance we need.

We are homeless because our previous hooman didn’t understand what it fully takes to deal with us so he left us behind in his old apartment when he moved. Thankfully the super found us before we starved to death. For the moment we have taken shelter at the MT. Vernon Animal shelter home in N.Y.

While the staff here is enjoyable and the shelter is nice we all know that we would be better off with someone that wants and needs our love and kisses along with having the time to play with us.

We are grateful that the staff here has made time for us and took pictures of two of us to post here on Pet Finder in hopes that we might be able to find our newest home with the best hooman ever. Help us find a reason to smile again by opening your home or letting someone who could be our hooman know that we are here waiting for them.

Disclosure: I receive no compensation from Pet Finder or the shelter featured here. I randomly pick ferrets from the new additions to the site and promote their adoption here on my blog and through twitter and facebook.

I believe that all animals deserve a forever home and Pet Finder is one great resource for finding both the right forever home for the animal and the right animal for the person looking.

Have a Chittering Good Day,

Jo

P.S. please drop me a line if you do adopt one of these featured fuzzy as Enlightened Ferret may do a follow up on those adopted because of them being a featured fuzzy.

The perfect crime duo

 

Bonnie and Clyde are perfect names for these two stinky little thieves. Not that ferrets are really stinky if they have been descented and aren’t bathed every day. Unfortunately it is unknown what their previous owner taught them to do as the owner is now incarcerated him/herself but the look on these two is more than mischievous it is the look of pure delight and careful planning.

Bonnie and Clyde are holed up in the humane society of Lackawanna in Clarks Summit, PA. Are you the one to help rehabilitate these two from their criminal past with lots of love and attention or know someone who is well versed in the filching habits of two master mind furry slinkys?

Let’s break these two out of Jail and into the perfect forever hide-out.

Disclosure: I get no compensation for posting adoptable ferrets from Pet Finder other than the satisfaction that I may help one or more ferret find his/her newest forever home.

Pet finder has been on the web for 15 years and has helped over 17 million animals get adopted. Before you buy give Pet finder a look your new best friend may be looking for you there.

Nemo Tuesday's Adoptable Ferret

 

Today’s adoptable ferret is Nemo  

 

This older Dark eyed White gentleman is residing in Bristol, TN

Nemo is full of energy even for a 5 yr old ferret and would love to bound and frolic into your home or someone you know that understands older ferrets. 

Nemo would do well with other older ferrets or on his own with a lot of out of cage time. 

Let’s give this guy a gift of love and a forever home.

Note: Nemo has a bald spot on his back from either a flea allergy or rubbing it a lot while in his cage it is expected to fill in when he gets his new coat.

Normally I would make a note that it could be a sign of adrenal but Nemo is residing with a ferret awareness group who would recognize the signs.

Still at the age of 5 it is recommended that he see a vet every 6 months.

Disclosure: I get no compensation for promoting these guys off of Pet Finder other than the hope that maybe one will get adopted into a forever home.

Pet Finder is a website dedicated to helping dogs, cats, small animals, and farm animals find forever homes and has been doing so for over 15 years. 

Before you buy give Pet Finder a look you might find your new best friend there.

Have a Chittering Good Day,

Jo

First Look: New Buddies Movie

As you know the boys and I were able to attend Blog Paws. What a fun event that was made even more wonderful with the first showing of the new Buddies movie from Disney. 

SpookyBuddiesLogo

Those with younger kids might know who the Buddies are but for the rest of us the Buddies stem from a movie called Air Bud that featured a golden retriever who was into sports.

He and Molly had five puppies (Rosebud, Mudbud, Budderball, B-Dawg, Buddah) who are always finding adventure. This newest film is no exception.

We are given a glimpse into the past on Halloween night when Warwick tries to summon the Howlloween Hound by using the souls of five blood related beagle puppies but is interrupted by the sheriff and one puppy’s( Pip) boy (Joseph). Only problem is pip’s soul is stuck in limbo and young Joseph is left with a stone statue of his beloved pip.

Fast forward 75 years. Where a Halloween crazy teacher who takes the kids on a school trip to the creepy mansion and tells the story of Warwick and the Howlloween Hound.

The buddies listen to the story and B-Dawg is goaded into stepping paws into the mansion where he meets Pip and mistakes him for the Howlloween Hound.

With the help of the Buddies new friends, Pip, Zelda the Mystic, Hoot the owl, they are able to bring Pip and Joseph back together while getting rid of the Howlloween Hound and Warwick for good.

Butterball’s secret weapon comes in handy to help defeat the Howlloween Hound but it is quick thinking B-Dawg’s idea.

This is a fun film for kids and adults will get a giggle out of the antics that follow the buddies and the kids on Halloween night. The Buddies costumes are adorable.

Spooky Buddies releases on DVD and Blueray September 20th and needs to magically appear in your DVD collection.

 SpookyBuddies_BlurayComboPackShot

 

Disclosure: I was given the opportunity to view this film for free during the Blog Paws conference. The review is my opinion only.

What other Buddies Movies have you seen and/or own?

Jo
