A telephone call from a friend from work resulted in Jerry. I was asked do I still keep ferrets, the answer being yes. His daughter, a veterinary nurse, practice where she worked had a stray ferret that had not been claimed that required a home.
I duly collected a large albino Hob ferret, very tame, that had kindly been castrated for me in early June 2019, he was a bit smelly, but obviously had been well cared for and fetched him home.
As of November, he has a magnificent winter coat.
