||One year old|
is a young male ferret who came into my hands at two and a half months old. When I
first observed him, he was underweight and you could feel his bones whenever
you laid your hands on him. He was lethargic and unhappy, anyone would have
noticed. Many people would have avoided him; after all, purchasing a sick
animal from a pet store isn't the smartest choice. When I personally held him
in my arms, I immediately knew this kit would grow into an amazing adult.
Despite the pleas that escaped from my peers' mouths, I purchased this little
fellow and took him home with me.
Through proper care and handling, Ramsey gained weight and grew into a
handsome, young male with a wonderful temperament. Even his coat is luxurious
and smooth; people who pet him always comment on how soft his coat is. He is
one of the sweetest ferrets you could ever meet: gentle, calm, and docile. Of
course, he does have his ferrety traits, such as stealing things and hiding
them, but he loves cuddles with people more than anything. He prefers to be
by your side at all times! Like any other ferret, he is curious and
adventurous, but never once has he ever shown any signs of aggression. Even
though he was neglected as a kit and handled roughly, he is always gentle
with everyone. I have never experienced any behavioral issues; he didn't even
have teething problems! He has grown into such a gorgeous ferret, he's a star
wherever he goes.
Ramsey today loves to chase things, especially brooms. He has a habit of
stealing things; such as earphones, pencil cases, keys, plastic bags, and of
course, socks! Not to mention, he has a habit of sticking his tongue out
whenever he sleeps. He loves to lie and sleep in people's arms or soft fabric
and wrestling. Not only is he a sweetheart, but incredibly smart as well. He
was fully potty trained within two weeks, learned to roll over in two days,
and is now constantly learning new tricks. Despite the unfortunate past that
he had experienced, he has matured into a fantastic ferret whom I couldn't
love more or more proudly call my own.
Jada Lee is a friend of mine and always accompanies me whenever I take him
outdoors, so she's the one who took these photos. Ramsey sure is a funny one,
I always look forward to seeing him whenever I come home. Just like a dog, he
waits for me in his cage and always greets me by war dancing around my feet
whenever I let him out. He really is a bundle of joy!
