The Ferrets ( part 3 )
When I took the ferrets for their checkup the vet asked me if I would consider adopting another ferret. A previous client had moved away and left the ferret with the vet. I was told that the poor ferret had been living in a cage in the back of the vet’s office for quite awhile. I said I would consider adopting the ferret if he was compatible with Freddy T and Jennifer.
The ferret was a beautiful sable male a little larger than Freddy T. When introduced, the three ferrets greeted each other like long lost friends. Sooo, “Anthony”, became part of our family.
The next morning I was awakened by three gleeful ferrets bouncing around on my bed. They pounced on each other and wrestled, then tunneled through the covers chasing each other. I found their happiness contagious.
Jen was the ringleader, and Freddy was Mr. happy go lucky. Anthony was more laid back and liked to study things a bit before jumping in.
Coming home from work and finding my socks and underwear in the middle of the front room, and the toilet bowl brush behind the gas stove had become part of our daily routine. Although sometimes they hid things under the couch...keys, wallet, mail, banana. Life with ferrets is an endless adventure.
These beautiful, intelligent little souls taught me more about love, and having fun and living in the moment than I can put into words.
I will be forever grateful to Jennifer, Freddy T. and Anthony for having blessed my life.
