Ferrets Who Found Homes in 2001

The following are the ferrets who passed through the Cascade Ferret Network and found homes in 2001!

Name: Winston Sex: M Age: 6 years Color: silver
Died: December
Winston was owned by the same person his entire life, but when his owner went through a divorce, he was forced to find a new home for his pet. Winston likes playing with dogs and enjoys going for walks. We aren't sure what he thinks of other ferrets, he sometimes seems overjoyed when he realizes there is another ferret in the room (he has cataracts and can't see very well), but other times he seems scared if a ferret tries playing with him.

Winston died after a long struggle with illness, but with lots of supportive care and love from his foster parents. He is missed dearly.

Name: Miles Sex: M Age: 5 months Color: albino
Placed: December
Miles was added to an established pair of ferrets, Allegro and Sonnet, just prior to being relinquished to the CFN. Miles is a very beautiful and fluffy albino who is gentle and has been around cats, dogs, and kids. Miles is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Habanero Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: blaze
Name: Jalapeno Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: blaze
Placed: December
These spicy boys were abandoned in a rental when the occupant moved out. The manager was good enough to contact us and meet us halfway to transfer them from Corollas. Habernaro and Jalapeno are overflowing with energy and enthusiasm for life and love to chase other ferrets and human feet. We are willing to place these boys in separate homes since they are young enough to adjust well to new circumstances, but we would like to see them in a home with other ferrets. These two boys are neutered, but not descented, and they give lots of kisses!

Both of these boys have been blood donors for ferrets in need. What great kids!

Name: Pedro Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable mitt
Placed: December
What a cutie! Pedro is small and his face looks like a kit, but we were told he is more than 1 year of age. His large white bib and mitts are striking against his dark coat. Pedro is very gentle and likes other ferrets and playing with people. Pedro is from Ruby Fur Farm.
Name: Belle Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: silver
Name: Boo Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: albino
Placed: December
Belle is a beautiful silver girl with an interesting pigment pattern on her nose. Boo is an adorable albino boy with a bobbed tail. Belle was adopted from CFN a couple years ago, but had to returned when her owner's living arrangements made it impossible for her to keep her ferrets. Boo has been living with Belle for about a year. Not much is known about his background, but he is a very happy and energetic guy. Belle is from Marshall Farms, Boo's origins are unknown.
Name: Picante Sex: M Age: 3 months Color: butterscotch
Placed: December
This cute little dumpling didn't last two weeks in his new home after being purchased from a pet store as a companion for a human baby. Idiots! At least they brought him to a shelter instead of returning him to the pet store where he would likely end up somewhere just as inappropriate the next time. Picante was lucky to be adopted into a very special ferret household where he will be cherished.
Name: Perry Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: dark eyed white
Name: Pongo Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: butterscotch
Name: Pepita Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: sable
Placed: December
These three sweet ferrets arrived with Perry obviously ill. Despite vet care, Perry died of liver failure November. Pongo and Pepita at least had each other, and found a home in December.
Name: Juniper Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: November
This petite young sweetheart was found at a park on Vancouver Lake and was never claimed. Initially Juniper wasn't too sure about playing with other ferrets, but she has now gotten over her shyness and enjoys roughhousing with other ferrets. She has put on weight since arriving, so may not be full grown yet. Juniper is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Twiggy Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Name: Piccolo Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: November
These darling ferrets arrived as virtual skeletons. Their former "caretaker" (and we use that term loosely) didn't know why they were getting so skinny, a contagious health issue of some sort was feared, but it was sadly obvious what the problem was when the pair fought over the food that was place in their cage. They have been plugged into the food bowl ever since arriving and are now chubby little butterballs that don't live up to their names anymore (Twiggy gained 300 grams in less than 2 weeks!). Twiggy and Piccolo love people and other gentle ferrets and are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Macaroon Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: albino
Placed: November
This guy is so sweet and fluffy that all you need is a piece of chocolate, some graham crackers and a campfire to make your very own ferret smore. Macaroon is delighted to do anything that involves playing with people or other ferrets. Macaroon is very good about using his litterbox when playing outside of his cage. He was adopted but had to return because of allergy issues. Macaroon is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Brazil Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: October
Ferrets don't get any better than this! Brazil is totally gentle with people and other ferrets and loads of fun to play with, a happy well adjusted guy just waiting for a responsible new owner to come into his life. Brazil is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Tinker Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: chocolate
Placed: October
Tinker is small for a male and a bit insecure around other ferrets. He was rescued after being attacked by a dog, and since he had the misfortune to live in California, he shared a flight up to Portland with some other refuges from the less then golden state. He has some thin patches of fur from his incident, but seems to have recovered nicely. Tinker loves batting around jingly balls and chuckles quite a bit when out to play. Tinker is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Rocky Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: sable
Placed: October
Rocky was adopted from the CFN into a good home about a year ago to be the companion of an older spoiled ferret. Rocky loved his new buddy, but sadly his new friend had a terminal illness which he recently succumbed to. Rocky tried to help his sick cagemate by bringing him mouthfuls of food, but it didn't help. The people that had adopted Rocky felt he really needed another ferret playmate to be happy and they couldn't deal with getting another ferret after the despair of loosing Rocky's friend. Rocky is having a great time with his new ferret buddies here and is hoping to find a home soon with at least one playful companion he can take care of. Rocky is from Triple F.

Rocky recently donated blood to help a ferret in desperate need of a transfusion. Way to go Rocky!

Name: Chip Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Mitzy Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: October
Chip and Mitzy arrived in a closed cardboard box on a hot afternoon after spending a long time in a car without air conditioning when their previous owners had to make a big detour to dispose of them after having them for only a few months. Chip and Mitzy were limp and covered in feces with the driest coats we've ever come across. The current owners had acquired them from someone else that didn't want them anymore, a typical story for even young shelter kids. As is also typical, they are total sweethearts (with humans and other ferrets), despite having had less than adequate care. Mitzy's coat is soft and luxurious now and Chip's is slowly improving. They are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Clyde Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: October
Clyde was found wondering the parking lot of a huge apartment complex that didn't allow pets. He was thin for his size and had fleas and ear mites. When placed next to other ferrets, Clyde looks like a big draft horse next to normal-sized horses, which is what inspired his name, short for Clydesdale. He is a real cuddle bunny and needs humans for security when other ferrets are in the same play area with him, but he is gaining confidence. Clyde is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Rosalindia Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: silver
Placed: October
This bundle of energy is almost too cute to tolerate! She is a dark-eyed white with a silver tail and stripe down her back. She behaves as if she is still a kit, so she probably has a little bit of growing to do. Rosalindia was found as a stray and was never claimed. We are certain she is deaf, but that doesn't dampen her spirits in the least! Rosalindia is from Marshall Farms.
Name: ChaChi Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: sable
Placed: September
It was hard to believe ChaChi could be left behind, but his irresponsible owner has never returned to claim him. ChaChi didn't have a cage and was shut into a cupboard under the sink when he needed to be kept enclosed. ChaChi's enthusiasm for life has not been diminished by his careless upbringing and he was soon adopted to be the lifelong friend of a spoiled sprite.
Name: Rufus Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Name: Whoobus Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Placed: September
This pair is looking for a new home because of a human relationship that broke up. Whoobus is very sweet and gives kisses even to strangers. She doesn't really have full white mitts, just white toes on all four feet. Rufus is very talkative and energetic. Rufus is from Triple F and Whoobus is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Cypress Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: silver
Placed: September
Cypress was found in a very weakened state, starved and dehydrated. The Good Samaritan that found him nursed him for a week before turning him over to us to find a new home. He was a sorry looking guy with ear mites, fleas, and a scruffy coat. Cypress is a very gentle soul and quickly won the devotion of a CFN volunteer and was adopted despite his need of adrenal surgery in the near future. Cypress is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Blizzard Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: albino
Placed: September
Even albino bigots would fall in love with this little sweetie if they met her, but too late, she has already been adopted by someone waiting especially for an albino girl. Blizzard loves people and ferrets, but somehow ended up as a stray that was never claimed. Her only problem was two odd looking bulges on her abdomen which turned out to be fat bulging through a hernia in her abdominal wall. The openings were sutured up and she has made a full recovery. Blizzard is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Feather Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: pale silver
Placed: September
When Feather arrived she was a skeleton with huge black eyes and covered with coarse white fur. She didn't seem to weigh much more than a feather. She was found wondering in her condition and was brought to us soon after. Despite Feather's frail condition, she was very alert and eager to take ferretone from us, but seemed to have difficulty licking a swallowing it. We checked her mouth and saw she had something wedged on the roof of her mouth. We pried it out and were surprised to find it was a cherry pit! We don't know if she was unable to eat because of it or if she ate it because she found it on the ground and was starving. She has had a tremendous appetite since then, eating an amazing amount of soup in one sitting. She is very active and seems to play well with other ferrets. Feather is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Sunny Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Placed: September
Sunny is hoping to find a new home, again. It is his second time through the shelter, but not because of any personality faults, mostly bad luck. Sunny has recovered from his recent adrenal surgery, which his previous owners were unable to provide for him, and is his happy-go-chuckley self again. He is loving all the attention he is getting in his foster home, but seems unwilling to accept any new ferret playmates, instead, Sunny enjoys playing with the cat. He also enjoys the bathtub, killing the vacuum cleaner, ambushing humans on the stairs, and pulling himself through tubes upside-down. Sunny is from Triple F.
Name: Benny Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Name: Joon Sex: F Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Placed: August
This super pair of ferrets came to us under strange circumstances. They had been left behind with the mother when the daughter and son that owned them moved out on their own. She dutifully took care of them, but her heart definitely wasn't in it. When mom had to leave town, the ferrets were left in the daughter's care. We got a call from the daughter saying someone had left a pair of ferrets and their cage in the yard of her residence. We found out the full story when the mother returned, found our brochure, but no ferrets, and called us. Very odd. Even if Benny and Joon came from a dysfunctional family, this pair of ferrets is very well adjusted, happy, and in no need of therapy. They love to play with humans and other ferrets and have lots of energy. Benny and Joon are from Marshall Farms.
Name: Chewbacca Sex: M Age: 3 months Color: cinnamon
Placed: August
In our opinion, Chewie is at the cutest ferret age ever, but apparently pet store customers prefer those squirmy, wormy 6 week old ferrets that lack a developed personality, so Chewbacca was sent back to his distributor in exchange for younger, easier to sell stock. This youngster has a lot to make up for since he hasn't been handled much or gotten to explore outside of his cage up until now. Chewie is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Mamushka Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: August
Mamushka is another one of those teddy bear ferrets that you just can't resist picking up and hugging. Not that Mamushka would mind, this compact little boy reminds us more of a tiny dwarf bear than a ferret. Mamushka arrived whole and in season, and was only recently neutered, so he smells bad and is aggressive towards other ferrets, and a little nippy to people. His odor will fade in time, as will his general nippiness (this boy likes playing with people), and we're hoping the decrease in hormones will increase his tolerance of other ferrets.

Mamushka is calming down and is good with people and okay with other ferrets that can handle his rough housing. Did we mention how cute he is?

Name: Nanki-Poo Sex: M Age: 3-4 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Yum-Yum Sex: F Age: 3-4 years Color: dark sable
Placed: August
This pair's first owners couldn't keep them because of allergies. Their second owners (who are Gilbert and Sullivan fans and gave the pair their current names from the opera Mikado) had them only four months before they had to move across country and felt they couldn't take the duo with them. Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum have done great with cats, dogs and kids. Yum-Yum has had some past injuries that have resulted in her being blind in one eye. She arrived with a luxated patella (slipped kneecap) which appears to have fixed successfully through surgery. She also appears to be developing a cataract in remaining good eye. Despite all these issues she is a terribly sweet girl that likes to be cuddled and interacts well with other ferrets. Nanki-Poo is a good natured, fun loving dynamo of activity that enjoys athletic play activities with other ferret friends. These guys would be good for first time owners. Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum are both from Marshall Farms.

Yum-Yum passed away unexpectedly in late June.

Name: Atlas Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Name: Athena Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Placed: August
This cute pair of kids has been through at least 3 homes in less than two years. Athena has had some biting issues with their last owners, but we feel it was because of lack of attention and out of cage time rather than a personality fault. She has been a sweet girl with all the volunteers that have played with her. Atlas is a total love. The pair has lived with other ferrets in the past. Atlas is from Marshall Farms, Athena has no tattoos, but has been descented.
Name: Raspberry Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: champagne
Placed: August
Raspberry is a gorgeous girl with a lush coat of beautifully colored fur. She has a feisty fun loving personality and would probably do best in an experienced home with other ferret companions to rough house with. She is from Triple F. Raspberry is calming down quite a bit in her foster home, and allowing her loving personality to shine through more often than not, although she should still go to an experienced ferret home.
Name: Friday Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: pale cinnamon
Name: Chelsea Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: sable
Friday and Chelsea have lived with Fury and Jasper their entire lives. They both like to give kisses and get attention from humans. Friday and Chelsea are both from Marshall Farms. Friday has since had adrenal surgery and no longer looks as scruffy as his photo shows.

Chelsea died from diabetes in early July, 2001. Near the end of July Friday underwent surgery to remove 3 hairballs. While Friday did make it through surgery, he had developed other health problems and died during another surgical procedure. Both are missed by their foster parents.

Name: Jules Sex: M Age: 5 years Color: silver-mitt
Name: Vern Sex: M Age: 5 years Color: sable
The owner of this pair of ferrets admitted he was "a poor ferret caretaker". This was painfully evident when the "skinny" boys were found to actually be skeletal. Vern was less than 1.5 lb.. when he arrived, filthy and covered with fleas. Both dove on the food bowl, devouring its contents for a solid 10 minutes. The boys have gained weight steadily since they arrived, putting on half a pound each in one week! Both Jules and Vern are very sweet despite their unfortunate background. Jules is especially adorable with a single black hind leg with a white sock. Vern is being treated for a bad bladder infection and Jules has a heart condition that may prevent him from undergoing the adrenal surgery he should have, so these guys really need a special home where they can get used to being the center of attention. They are both from Marshall Farms.

These two boys have been CFN ferrets for a very long time, and have resided at the central facility for quite a while. We've gotten to know them well, and when both were diagnosed with lymphoma, we began to let them up into the house, and take Vern out on walks. Vern has always been the sweetest of ferrets, and his happy go lucky attitude has been a joy to watch. Unfortunately Vern began to decline rapidly over the past few days, and completely crashed today (May 20). He lost his battle with lymphoma less than an hour ago, and we will miss the wistful expressions on his face and his spunky outlook on life. Jules is still eating well on his own, but is not very active. We'll make sure he gets a little extra attention each day now that his buddy has gone.

Jules passed away quietly near the end of June. The wonderful vets at Southwest Animal Hospital volunteered their time and the clinic's resources to perform an operation to remove a massive tumor and extend Jules' life, and while Jules survived the surgery and woke up some time afterwards, he slipped away a short while later to rejoin his life long buddy, Vern, over the Rainbow Bridge.

Name: Opie Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: July
Opie is a gentle giant of a ferret, unfortunately after being rescued from neglect by a Good Samaritan, he was unable to win over his savior's female ferret and had to be relinquished to CFN to find a new place to call home. This guy is a lover and excels at finding really adorable positions to sleep with his legs spread out and his belly exposed. Opie is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Gazelle Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: cinnamon
Placed: July
Gazelle's huge dark eyes, long whiskers and lashes, and luxurious coat make her appear glamorous enough for a Modern Ferret centerfold photo shoot. She was relinquished by her owner when he had to move to California, where ferrets are still treated like fugitives. Gazelle is still somewhat aloof with other ferrets, as if it is beneath her dignity to roll around on the floor with them, but she plays the happy silly ferret when interacting with humans. Gazelle is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Persephone Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: July
Every now and then we take in a ferret that makes us wonder about humans and weep for all those who suffer from our thoughtless actions, or in Persephone's case, inaction. Persephone was purchased from a pet store and kept in a small glass aquarium for almost all of her life. Persephone was seldom let out from her glass prison, and even then not handled because her owners were afraid of her. During her last few months of confinement Persephone was not let out at all, nor was her aquarium cleaned. When we first saw her she was a ragged bundle of skin and bones sitting on top of an inch thick layer of ferret shit. She had no food, and only a handful of Cheerio scattered about the cage sitting on top of her waste. She had urine burns on her paws and was unresponsive. In short her life was a living hell.

We put Persephone in a clean cage with food and water and offered her soup, which she eagerly accepted. Within a day Persephone was up and about, but she had no strength in her hind quarters and would frequently fall over. Worse yet, Persephone's long confinement had taken a toll on her mental health, and she continuously circled her cage and play areas without taking notice of anyone or anything. Persephone ate well, and began to take notice of us when we fed her, and when we interacted with her at play times.

Slowly but surely a friendly and inquisitive ferret emerged as this shy girl opened up and began to notice and interact with her surroundings. Persephone now actively plays with people and gets along well with other ferrets. Persephone still restlessly paces about her cage and play area, but these periods are becoming less and less frequent as time goes by. This girl loves people and will give kisses, but she is from Triple F, and when she plays with people she does nip a little too hard, but we're working with her on that.

Persephone went to a wonderful home with other ferret playmates.

Name: Pascal Sex: F Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Placed: June
Pascal is a chubby, well-adjusted jill. She was well cared for by her previous owners with regular vet exams and vaccinations. She has lived with children, but has not been around other animals. Pascal is looking for a new home because her family is moving to a place that doesn't allow pets. Since her arrival, Pascal has acquired ferret playmates and enjoys hissing. Pascal is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Maya Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: June
Maya is one of those ferrets you can't help feeling is special even though she isn't especially noteworthy. She absolutely lights up when humans are interacting with her, but she will make do with ferret playmates. She is very cute with just a few white toes on one of her front feet. She was abandoned by her former owner and her temporary caretaker was unable to take Maya with him when he moved even though he gotten very attached to her. Maya is from marshall Farms.
Name: Jack Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Name: Jill Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: silver mitt
Placed: June
They don't get any sweeter than this! Pretty, plump, and pleasant personalities. It's sure not their fault they have been owned by two different families in their short lives. Jack and Jill get along with cats and other ferrets and have been handled by kids. Other than having ear mites these two are a practically perfect pair. Jack and Jill are from Marshall Farms.
Name: Blanco Sex: M Age: 8 months Color: silver
Placed: June
This big beautiful guy was rescued from an abusive home by a good Samaritan. He had a reputation for unexpectedly biting, but we think his problem is that no one realized he is deaf. Blanco loves playing with other ferrets and people and has lived with cats before coming to CFN. He needs to be treated for ear mites, but otherwise was updated on his vaccinations by his rescuer. Blanco is reported to be from a breeder in Canada.

Blanco is proof that somewhere out there is a human for every ferret. Coon is also fostering at Blanco's new home!

Name: Venus Sex: F Age: 4-5 years Color: silver
Placed: June
Venus is an older girl that deserves a higher quality and safer home than she came from. She is recovering from a bite wound and needs to have adrenal surgery, but she is full of spunk and loves human attention. She seems to tolerate other gentle ferrets, but doesn't put up with any guff from them and can scream like a pro if they don't respect her authority. Venus is very people oriented, and responds with affection when given attention. She has put on weight and is now a chunky, healthy, playful ferret who would do great in a home where she would receive a lot of one on one attention from her humans. Venus is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Ferris Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: sable mitt
Placed: June
Ferris has a beautiful white bib, mitts, and kneecaps and a rich yellowish undercoat which makes him a visually stunning ferret. He has lived in the same home his entire life and is somewhat stressed at being in the shelter. Ferris is a sweet but anxious boy who has a hard time relaxing and always wants to climb up or out. He has been slowly calming down, and really loves human attention, but we're not yet introduced him to other ferrets. He is very athletic and leaps from objects with no chance of hitting his target. He is very generous with kisses and has lived with cats and dogs in the past. Ferris is from Triple F.
Name: Ria Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: cinnamon mitt
Placed: May
Ria is another ferret left with a caretaker and never retrieved. She is stunning in appearance and very gentle when playing. She plays well with other gentle ferrets and has been around cats and kids without problems. Ria does not sport and ear tattoos, but she has been spayed and descented.
Name: Titania Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: silver
Placed: May
Titania is very vocal and flies through the air like a fairy whenever she gets the chance to leap from something. She has huge beautiful black eyes and a pale silvery coat. Her owners were forced to give her up when they were evicted from their home. She has a magical personality. Titania is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Poppy Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: dark sable
Placed: May
Poppy was left behind by her former owners who never returned to claim her. She is very quick and seems to startle easily, but plays well with humans and other ferrets. She also played with the cat were she lived before coming to the shelter. Poppy is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Koby Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: badger
Placed: April
Koby is a very petite male with unique facial markings. He has lived with other ferrets and does well with kids, but hates dogs according to his previous owner. Koby is reported to love baths and playing in the water in general. Koby is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Olympia Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Placed: April
This beauty was turned over to us because her owner was concerned that her son would harm them on purpose. It didn't sound like a good situation, so we made arrangements to bring her (and her two cage mates, Pandora and Frankie) back from Olympia as soon as possible. Olympia was saved from a horrible pet store situation and is beautiful and sweet and likes playing with other ferrets. Pandora and Frankie have already been placed together, but Olympia can go to a home with another ferret. Olympia is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Couscous Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon mitt
Placed: April
This is one gorgeous ferret! He seems very good natured despite living in horrible conditions. This fully grown whole male has been living in a tiny hamster cage for more than a year. The bottom of the cage was filled with cumping litter and he was feed the "cheapest cat food available" according to his previous owner. Couscous needs to be neutered, treated for ear mites, and have his complete vaccine series. He should be smelling significantly less a month after his surgery and then we can see how well he does with other ferrets. Couscous had quite a list of people who wanted him, and as expected, this teddy bear found a home in no time.
Name: Twitter Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: sable
Name: Wicket Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: sable
Placed: April
These girls were tearfully turned over to us when their owners unexpectedly found out the reality of ferret veterinary care. Wicket has adrenal disease and needs surgery and Twitter contracted ECE from some recently purchased pet store kits. The future vet care burden was too much for them so they were grateful to turn them over to the CFN where they were assured the pair would get the vet care they need to thrive. These two are sweet hearts with lots of personality. Twitter is from Triple F and Wicket is from Canada.

These two girls went to a great home in Washington, where they're actively being spoiled by a great ferret experienced family.

Name: Cassie Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: sable
Name: Booboo Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: April
These two plump girls have been well loved, but had the misfortune to be owned by a teenager who has left for college and the parents could not give the girls the attention they need. Cassie and Booboo are total sweethearts that readily give kisses and get along well with other pets and children. The girls are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Macaroon Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: albino
Placed: March
This guy is so sweet and fluffy that all you need is a piece of chocolate, some graham crackers and a campfire to make your very own ferret smore. Macaroon is delighted to do anything that involves playing with people. We suspect he will be just as happy with other ferrets, but he hasn't had the opportunity to interact with any yet. Macaroon is very good about using his litterbox when playing outside of his cage. He was turned in as a stray and is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Bunky Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: dark silver mitt
Placed: March
Bunky was lucky to be owned by a young man mature enough to realize he wasn't able to give the ferret the attention he deserved. He visited the shelter before surrendering the ferret to make sure Bunky was going to a good tempoary home. It was a pleasure to watch Bunky's personality unfold before us, and he soon found a good home.
Name: Othello Sex: M Age: 2 to 3 years Color: sable
Name: Lightening Sex: M Age: 4 to 5 years Color: badger
Placed: March
Othello and Lightening have been buddies since they were adopted about a year ago. Their former owner was unable to give them the daily attention we require they get, and she felt they were suffering because of it. Lightening also has some health issues that were going to be hard for her to afford dealing with. He underwent adrenal surgery earlier this year, but not all the abnormal tissue was removed, and another surgery will be needed in the future. He has also been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease which needs medication and monitoring in the future. Othello is a feisty boy that talks incessantly as he chases his ferret friends around. He is a small boy, but has very large feet. Lightning is from Marshall Farms and Othello is from a local breeder and is not descented.
Name: Scarlett Sex: F Age: 8 months Color: cinnamon
Placed: March
This youngster has a vivaious personality and is just plain adorable. It's hard to imagine who could abandon a sweetheart like this, but that's what happened to Scarlett. She was left in the care of the owner's roommates and her owner never returned. She is thrilled to get human interaction, but needs to finish ear mite treatment before we can see how she gets along with other ferrets. Scarlett is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Pandora Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Name: Frankie Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Placed: March
These two beauties were turned over to us because their owner was concerned that her son would harm them on purpose. It didn't sound like a good situation, so we made arrangements to bring them (and their cagemate Olympia) back from Olympia as soon as possible. Frankie was purchased as a bay from a pet store and they found later (after she was named) that the ferret was a female. Pandora was living in a pet store and labeled as a "biter", which means her future was not bright. Luckily she was taken home and given lots of attention and does not live up to her former reputation. They are beautiful and sweet and like playing with other ferrets. Pandora and Frankie must were placed together, but Olympia will go to a home with another ferret. Pandora and Frankie are from Triple F.
Name: Chomper Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Missy Sex: F Age: 2.5 years Color: dark sable
Placed: March
We usually alter the names of ferrets that refer to any type of biting behavior, but we were told that Chomper is named after a dinosaur character in the movie Land of the Lost. Chomper has had her name for a long time and is a total sweetheart so we will make an exception for in her case. Missy is a beautiful black sable with a loving disposition. They have been well taken care of their entire lives, but were tearfully relinquished because of allergy problems with thier owner's family. They have lived with young children and dogs and get along well with other ferrets. They are both from Marshall Farms.

These sweet girls went to a great home, but they were here for so long that we really miss them.

Name: Snoopy Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: albino
Name: Mandy Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: sable
Placed: February
We never got a clear picture of exactly why their owners decided Snoopy and Mandy needed to find a new home, the story never quite made sense, but it was clear immediately that Mandy was suffering from adrenal disease which required surgery. This pair of sweethearts are very gentle and would be a great choice for a family with children or a first time owner. Snoopy and Mandy are both from Marshall Farms. They were adopted soon after Mandy recovered from surgery and are very happy in their new home.
Name: Sundance Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Moonshadow Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: silver
Placed: February
This gorgeous pair of boys had the misfortune to be owned by the irresponsible son of an exasperated father. The father gratefully turned the pathetic guys over to the CFN where they could be sure of always having a full food bowl, a warm clean place to sleep, and a chance to play everyday. They were both very underweight on their arrival (the weight of a small female) but had a healthy population of ear mites. Sundance is a beautiful rich cinnamon color with a golden undercoat and Moonshadow has huge dark eyes in a shimmering silver body. Moonshadow is from Marshall Farms, Sundance doesn't have any tattoos, but has been neutered and descented.
Name: Marina Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Zoe Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: February
Marina and Zoe need to find a new home because of a change in lifestyle of their owners (birth of baby). In addition to being very pretty, these two are definitely cuddlebunnies. They like playing with other ferrets and would be a great pair of ferrets for first time owners. Marina and Zoe are from Marshall Farms.
Name: Boris Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: February
Boris tried to fit into his new home, but things just didn't work out and he is back looking for another try at being a part of a human family. He developed a problem with biting, which we are evaluating, and was having problems socializing with the other ferrets in the home. Boris is a Triple F ferret.
Name: Puff Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: sable
Puff was living a life of neglect in Astoria until a friend of our Astoria outpost volunteers convinced his teenage owner to turn him over to the CFN to find a better life. This poor guy is almost totally bald and in need of a lot of TLC before and after he undergoes adrenal surgery. Puff is devouring the attention his foster parents are lavishing on him and is on the road to being rehabilitated into a happy healthy gib ready for a new home. Puff is from Marshall Farms.

Puff developed diabetes and died in February. This poor boy was much fussed over by his foster parent, and died in her arms. Puff is missed.

Name: Lydia Sex: F Age: 8 years Color: silver
This old lady was owned by the same person her whole life, but lived longer than her college-bound owner was counting on, so at 8 years of age she is competing with younger, cuter, healthier ferrets for a special place to live out the rest of her life.

Lydia died in her foster parent's arms early in 2001. She spent the last several months of her life pampered and loved, and passed away quietly early one morning, before the sun rose. She is missed.

Name: Flick Sex: M Age: 9 months Color: sable
Name: Niblet Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: sable
Placed: January
These guys are adorable. They were relinquished because of their owner's pregnancy problems. Flick and Niblet liked playing with the cat they used to live with and are enjoying their new ferret friends. They are being treated for ear mites, but are very happy and healthy otherwise. They are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Névé Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: albino
Placed: January
Névé is a large, beautiful girl. She was named after a term that refers to a field of granular snow because of her handsome white coat. We were worried about Névé because she was not eating. We finally tried some Marshalls ferret food (not a food we usually offer), and she started chowing down. She loves to wrestle and "corn cob" human hands, but doesn't like other ferrets at all. Névé is a great ferret who will lavish her owners with love and ferret kisses. We've become quite fond of her here at the shelter and can't understand why she hasn't found a home yet. Névé is from Marshall Farms, and her name rhymes with "away".

We are thrilled with Névé's placement: this special girl will live in a classroom of sixth grade students at an elementary school. On the weekends she'll go home with the teacher or a very responsible student, and on holidays she'll come visit with us.

Name: Ashley Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: silver
Placed: January
This beautiful girl was a stray that came north from the land of ferret persecution (CA). She is a very lively sprite, as is the norm for a 6 month old, but she managed to acquire a green fracture of her front leg during a play session and has been forced to endure more cage rest than she would like. The fracture seems to be healing well and by the time Ashley finishes her distemper series and ear mite treatment, she should be completely healed and ready for action. Ashley is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Gremlin Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: January
Gremlin has been abandoned by more than one owner in his short life. He has spent the last month of his life living under a cabin near Sandy, Oregon. The kind hearted couple living in the cabin had been feeding Gremlin every evening when he came out of his hiding place. They hoped his owners (who they knew) would reclaim and capture him, but after a month of waiting and worrying about the little guy getting eaten by the plentiful predators in the area (including cougars), having their boots turn up missing off the porch, finding "presents" left by the ferret thanking them for the food, they decided to take action. They called the CFN just when the weather started to get nasty. They assured us the ferret came out every night like clockwork and wasn't afraid of them (the main reason they hadn't captured him was they were a little bit afraid of him), so he should have been easy for us to catch. We'd heard that story before and knew better, so we brought a live trap to leave in case the ferret did not behave as predicted, which he didn't. Luckily, Gremlin went into the trap shortly after we left the site. Other than smelling slightly of skunk, he is in good shape with no fleas, but a bad case of ear mites. He is very gentle with people and seems a bit intimidated with other ferrets so far. Gremlin is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Arwen Sex: F Age: 4-5 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: January
Arwen's most recent owners were not caring or responsible humans. They left Arwen in a crate without food or water at a gas station, and by the time someone finally noticed her she was almost dead. Arwen weighed less than 3/4 of a pound, could barely stand, had black tarry diarrhea, and a bruised and bloody vulva. Arwen is a fighter and had a strong will to survive. She bounced back quickly with the help of hand feedings and medications. Within a few short weeks she doubled her weight and transformed from a pathetic skeleton curled into a tight ball into a bright eyed, bushy tailed girl with a lot of personality and a deficit of lost cuddle and play time to make up for in the rest of her life. Arwen deserves to be pampered as much as possible for the rest of her life. She seems to interact well with gentle ferrets. Arwen is from Marshall Farms.

Arwen went home with a super family who have adopted CFN ferrets in the past, and she now plays with her new ferret friends (including Critter and Fern) and lavishes kisses upon her humans. She is a healthy, happy, chunky bundle of joy.

Name: Wilbur Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: January
Wilbur is a chubby, good natured boy that hitched a ride from California with a group of 5 other ferrets. We don't know much about him other than his name and age. He loves playing with humans and other ferrets and is just the right size for hugging. Wilbur is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Chianti Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: dark silver mitt
Name: Beaujolais Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: dark silver mitt
Placed: January
This pair of husky boys are a joy to be around. It is hard to resist cuddling them and rubbing their big bellies, which they endure with good natured tolerance. Chianti and Beaujolais have been through several homes, but don't seem worse for the wear. They play well with other ferrets and would be great for a first time owner. Chianti is from Triple F and Beaujolais is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Blitzen Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: January
Blitzen is gorgeous and readily gives kisses to anyone that asks for them. He is the sweetest ferret from Triple F we have yet to meet. He is a stray that had a healthy flea and ear mite population when he arrived. Blitzen loves playing with Cody and humans and he is very gentle.
Name: Cody Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: albino
Placed: January
Cody arrived absolutely crawling with blood-sucking fleas. His coat looks terrible right now, but we hope it will grow in again soon now that the fleas are gone and he is getting a high quality diet. In addition to the fleas, he was also infested with ear mites. He has a great attitude though! He positively LOVES playing with people and other ferrets, a very sweet boy. Cody is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Aspen Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: silver mitt
Placed: January
This beautiful gib was dropped off at the Southwest Washington Humane Society after spending a week in a pet carrier on the porch while his owners were moving. It didn't look like they bothered to make sure he had food since he arrived emaciated and the staff at the Humane Society said the carrier was absolutely filthy. Aspen is putting on weight and regaining his strength quickly and is a beautiful creamy color. He is from Marshall Farms and might be deaf.
Name: Faith Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: January
Faith was fortunate to be found by someone that cared and gave her the best care they could until a move to their new home prevented them from continuing to care for her. She was emaciated and covered with fleas when they found her, but they got rid of her fleas and she dug into the food they gave her and she is now a normal weight. Faith is hoping someone else will take her into their home and care for her for the rest of her life. Faith is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Pooka Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: cinnamon
Name: Pipit Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: cinnamon
Name: Indigo Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: silver mitt
Placed: January
Triple the pleasure, triple the fun! This trio of girls just want to have fun and they know how. Pooka and Pipit are almost identical and Indigo is a stunning dark silver with white mitts, bib, and kneepads. They have been well taken care of, but had to be left behind when their owner moved out of state. They have lived with a cat and play well with other ferrets. Pipit could be placed separately in a home with another ferrets playmate. Indigo and Pipit are from Marshall Farms, Pooka does not have any tattoos.

Indigo and Pooka went home together, and soon after Pipit found an established ferret home of her own.

Name: Cornelius Sex: M Age: 1 - 2 years Color: sable
Died: January
Cornelius is a sweet gentle boy who was found by the side of the road by a good samaritan, who noticed he couldn't use his hind quarters. At first we though Cornelius had escaped from his home and was paralyzed after he was hit by a car, but tests xrays, and examinations from specialists revealed that this poor little boy has a rare disease. The disease is working its way up from his back legs to his front legs, and there is no cure or procedure to help him. Cornelius is a doll, and loves playing and interacting with people, but he goes through periods where he is in pain, and we are monitoring him constantly to see when these periods become so frequent and long that his life is more misery than joy.

Cornelius was helped over the Rainbow Bridge in early January of 2001. He was a sweet boy whom all the shelter staff miss.
