About Us
Heidi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Heidi
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Ferret
Home: Lambertville, New Jersey, USA
   Heidi is the oldest of our five ferrets and we grow to love her more every day. She was our first adopted (not store bought) ferret and the only one with her scent glands intact. (They are routinely removed by most large breeders). That is how she got her nickname 'Stinkerbell'! :-) She loves to visit her grammie's house. We used to live there before moving next door and she loved to go downstairs and eat the cat's food. Soon after we moved we started to make almost daily trips over. Now, Heidi will wait for us either at the front door or in her travel cage (see photo), to take her next door for her daily dose of kitty food. She has actually trained the other four ferrets to wait in the travel cage, too!

    Heidi is showing some beginning stages of adrenal disease but has just started her Lupron injections. We are already seeing great progress in the treatments and hope to have little 'Tink' with us for a long time to come.
