    Since i rehomed wally i have been thinking that five is a very bad number of ferrets.....hanna and maggie sleep all day and poor salomai has to put up with the rather boisterous munchkin and woody...so when next door offered me their laszt little polecat girl...how could i resist :D :D :D

    will be picking her up later today but i cant decide if she should go straight outside with the others or stay in until she is a mite bigger, opinions please :)

    awww she is super cute. how are your others with her? it maybe worth treating her with stuff for ticks before she gets to meet your lot so you know if they did get anymore she isnt the reason.

    shes eating a diddy bit, iv soaked some biscuits in cat milk for her and that seems to being going down ok, i will be buying some meat from the butchers on monday, she came as a surprise as i was told that next door had already rehomed them all.

    she was kept outside before with her siblings, but when i saw her she was shivering non stop :(

    not really, i have only see her take a few mouthfuls, im about to embark on mission scrambled egg lol

    she is so different to muchkin at her age, all he did is eat sleep poop and eat lol she is nosey and into everything.

    she is still shaking a fair bit though, she has plenty of bedding which she is curled up in, im thinking its just nerves being in a strange place.

    could you not bring solomia in? shes only a kit isnt she? it could be shes missing other ferrets for company so is scared. I am sure after a few days she will be fine.

    I'm sure they'll be fine, Kits rarely if ever fight. Its good really in a way as Bubbles and Solo (hope you dont mind that lol) can keep one another company now.

    I would quarantine her from your others for a while, treat for mites and check poos for worms.

    If shes used to being outside it will be quite a shock to her system to come inside. How about a snuggle safe disc over night? the temps have suddenly got cold.

    She beautiful she does look super tiny too
