Slinky - she may look tiny but she plays hard
(Gainesville, Florida, USA)
Slinky (Links, Stinkels, Linky-poo)
This is Slinky. She is the only girl in our ferret business of three. A dainty walker and a finicky eater, Slinky roams the house as if she owns the place. Strutting along her usual path to investigate the latest happenings in the house. She won our hearts from the moment we picked her up from her previous human friend. Her tail was hairless then and we were worried that she might be getting sick so we took her to the vet and had some testing done. The vet thinks it may have been the stress of her previous home. She was made to stay in the two story cage in a "Florida room" under the Florida sun. The house was a mess (probably due to moving) and the four large dogs roaming around could have made any small animal nervous.
Thankfully the vet has since given her a clean bill of health! She is now a free roam ferret (while we are in the house) with at least a dozen different bed spots (upstairs and downstairs) to choose from. Most hours you can find her curled up with the boys and her favorite teenie beenie.
