She had a vet appointment over Memorial Day weekend for a checkup and also for her final distemper shot. She luckily didn’t have any reaction to the vaccine which is common in ferrets. We noticed that sometimes when she was really playing, that her hind leg would give out on her and her hind quarters would fall to one side. The vet checked this out and it appears that she has an old injury to one of her hind feet. It doesn’t seem to be hurting her though which is a good thing.
She was pretty subdued when I first brought her home. She wasn’t used to kisses and cuddles at first but now will climb up to wherever I’m at to receive them. I am always willing, too. Where she came from a shelter and then previous to that, a home where the owner no longer had time for her, I don’t think she got a lot of attention.
I really couldn’t ask for a better pet. She uses her litter box pretty consistently and has had few accidents. She’s pretty low key and easy going. Hubby seems to be taking a liking to her as well which is a huge plus. While reading on Sunday in my room, Hubby walked by the door and was completely unaware that he was being followed by a weasel who was dancing behind him as if she were dodging fire crackers. He walked by again and there she was dancing and bouncing behind him still. How could I not laugh at that?
