Sad Tidings.... Diesel

Diesel, the elder and mascot at the Ferret Inn, has crossed over the bridge. He came to us in Jan 2006 at 6 years old, sick and with only a few sprouts of white hair and that distinctive black nose. Diesel had two adrenal/insulinoma surgeries while here at the Inn, which left him with a stunning white coat and a new lease on life. In his younger days, he was our ambassador and would frequent outings and ferret education days with us. He had since retired and had found our carpeted bed room to be most comfortable, at which he had time and time again left his mark on as most seniors do.
Up till his passing he received regular acupuncture treatments to keep him comfortable and well balanced.
Diesel was a favorite with all who treated him, the visitors and the volunteers. Until we meet again my Diese…

New arrival: more Black Jacks!

Five new fitches were delivered today from the same research facility that brought us the 21 Black Jacks! When it come to good fortune, The Ferret Inn has been privileged to receive these newcomers.

Twelve Black Jacks remain from the original group of 21. The 5 newcomers have already taken a liking to their friends with very familiar faces. And even though they have been provided with some enrichment, they have had limited human interaction. So we are always amazed at what wonderful companions these girls make.
