   Hi everyone!

   My name is Maya and, let's be honest, I'm probably the world's cutest ferret! Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I'm a "second-hand pet", that is to say that I come from a special ferret rescue center. When I was eight months old, a nice lady found me wandering alone in the street. I had been there for days and I was completely starved and dehydrated. However, after a lot of TLC at the shelter, I quickly put on some weight and perked up. That's when my future owner came to visit me at the shelter in search of a furry friend. Despite knowing nothing about my past, he still fell in love with my sweet face and decided he wanted to take me home!

   The first few moments were quite difficult because we still had to get to know each other and I had to learn everything, like not to bite everything that moved and to wear my harness without throwing a massive tantrum every time, but hey, we got through! And don't worry, my owner still has all of his fingers...just! I was a feisty little thing, to put it mildly!

   Now, everything is rosy, we spend hours playing together and going on little walks in the garden, so many interesting things to sniff! I've also calmed down and matured, if I may say so myself, and I've learned to love cuddles and being handled. I've also recently started clicker training, which is fun, because I can earn tasty treats! My owner thinks I should be honored, because I'm a one of a kind ferret!

   Lots of love and ferret snuffles,
