Baby Nutty Bath time ! A few days after introducing Rocky to Nutty My baby boy.

I was never really interested in ferrets until I saw this little guy (a sable mitt). He was with one other ferret (a black eyed white) and I ended up taking him home with me. I couldn't afford the both of them unfortunately but Nutty has became the love of my life. He was such a burst of energy when I first had him home. Hence how he got his name. He would get into everything and ruin it, from paper towels, to shoes, to his litter in his litter pan. The litter wouldn't be in the litter pan but all over the bottom of his cage. After a few months he did grow out of that and he finally was able to be let out of his cage overnight until it came to a point that the cage was barely in use anymore. He became such a lazy ferret and was very cuddly. He would always want attention. There were some nights that he even came and slept on my bed with me. I began to wonder if he was just bored and wanted company so I decided to get another ferret (Rocky is his name) and very quickly they became the best of brothers even though he did get beat up a lot he still had a load of love for Rocky. He was a very picky ferret, he didn't like certain foods and treats. He also wouldn't want to eat out of the same bowl as Rocky for the fact that Rocky somehow always dumped most of his water into his food dish and the food became soft. Certain toys of his were his and NO ONE else's. (not even the one who gave him it). Outside was one of his favorite places to be. Chasing cars and digging holes were his favorite. His death came very suddenly and out of no where. I took him to the vet the second I saw blood in his stool. He was sent home with medication and day by day his health was just decreasing. Until 4 days later, his last night, I was able to pay for an overnight stay in another vet and the next morning I got the call that he passed away. Till this day I wonder what could have caused his death because the vets didn't know without further examining him. Unfortunately I couldn't afford it at the time. I just hope he still know that he's still thought about each and everyday. I thank him for being such a great ferret and for introducing me to the lovely animals. Nutty was born on May 5th, 2010 and passed away March 8th, 2011. Although he didn't live such a long life, he did have a happy one.
