||Three years old|
is an older male ferret who was rescued from an exotic animal
auction. When he came to me he was very afraid of humans and
especially human hands. Rusty has a physically damaged right eye from
human abuse. His eye is enlarged and blind. Even though Rusty's first
years were of abuse and neglect, he is now a very loving special
ferret. Each morning he gets up to greet me as I do morning chores.
He will come over to me, put his little paws around my ankle to get
my attention then he'll lay down on his back to ask for me to pet his
belly. He checks on me several times throughout the evening as well -
I guess he wants to make sure I'm still there and I'm o.k. Rusty is
so very gentle and his loving joyful nature makes him a welcome part
of our family. My heart aches for his past life and all those that
still face abuse/neglect. I am so thankful that Rusty is with us.
