We decided to try fostering a couple of ferrets, as the rescue here is overwhelmed. Meet Zeus and Athena:
Zeus and Watson:
Sleeping Athena(almost the only time I can get a decent pic of her!)
Athena and Watson:
If you're wondering why the only pics with kitties are with Watson, he's the only one willing to go around them right now
Zeus and Athena were adopted out by the rescue foundation here. They were reapprehended a month later during a home visit. When you adopt from the ferret rescue here, you sign a contract that allows them a visit to decide how the ferret is being looked after. They have the right to reapprehend the frret on that visit.
Beofre this, they were real sweethearts. Zeus still "feeds" Athena, by bringing her kibbles to put in her mouth, but Athena has changed from before.You see, prior to the adoption, she was a real lovey cuddlebug. Now, she's a biter. I have deep bite marks on my arm, and so does hubby. She bites from fear. When I scruffed her(the most accepted and efficient way to discipline a ferret- they generally relax their bodies, and yawn to indicate submission), she started trembling and shaking. She was really frightened by what I may do to her while scruffing. Needless to say, after giving her the "NO BITE", she got cuddles and kisses til she calmed down.
