See the picture of that cute little stinker?
That's the reason I'll be washing and ironing Papa's shirts at home a little longer!
A couple of days ago Guppy 1 noticed that her ferret, Rum, wasn't eating much. This progressed to refusing to eat any kibble at all and my subsequent spoon feeding the rascal Gerber baby food (Turkey to be exact) every couple of hours. On the plus side, I got to relive the glory days of wearing baby food on my clothes! (haha!)
Yesterday I called the vet to get their thoughts and....
I brought the ferret in today at 10:30 for a quick check up to be sure all was well and there wasn't any physical reason for the refusal to eat.
So, the good news is that Rum is fine....just being a finicky ferret! I guess it's common for ferrets to stop "liking" the brand of ferret food I used. Imagine that?
Here's the real plot twist....
Rum isn't the little boy we thought he was...
He is a SHE!
I guess that explains why SHE is so tiny! Haha!
Anyway, the new food was purchased and Rum seems very interested in what I was putting in her bowl! I am hopeful that spoon feeding her the baby food (which by the way the vet referred to as "ferret crack") is over and she will like the new stuff!
But, at least we know she is healthy and just being picky.
The whole endeavor (including the baby food & new ferret food) ended up costing us right under $90....
That equals a whole lot of ironing for me, doesn't it?
That's okay though. I'll gladly do it for the peace of mind of knowing that our cute littlest furball is okay!
What's a few more months of ironing after doing it for over 20 years after all?
