The year in review:

Ferrets that arrived: 121
Ferrets placed or ruinited with their owners: 125
Ferrets that died: 20

The following are the ferrets who passed through the Cascade Ferret Network and found homes in 2002!

Name: Raisin Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: sable
Name: Currant Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: sable
Arrived: September 24, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
These lucky girls were found abandoned on a bike path off of hiway 205 while two other less lucky ferrets were seen running away as their rescuers approached. They coaxed the girls into their packs and rode home with them on their bikes. The girls were scawny and one had scabs around her neck possibly from a collar that had gotten too tight. The rescuers took good care of them for a month before they decided ferrets were not a good pet for them to have. Both Raisin and Currant have a great time with other ferrets. Raisin is smaller and darker with a black nose and Currant is larger and paler with a pink nose. They are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Teva sponsored Sex: M Age: 4.5 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
Teva is a hefty happy go lucky gib that was forced into a situation where he had to find a new home on the double or face the alternative solution proposed by his owner's housemate: a food source for the owner's python (who was not forced out of his home). Apparently Teva smelled a lot more than the python and the house mate wasn't willing to share the room with him. Teva didn't smell, but his cage sure did! Teva is now enjoying a lot more attention and playtime with a happy group of ferret friends.
Name:Flavia Sex: F Age: 1-2 years Color: dark sable
Arrived: November 17, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Flavia was found as a stray in SE Portland. She may have been in a basement for several days. She was covered with fleas upon arrival. She has a scar on her left eye from unknown causes. We will try her with other ferrets soon! She is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Sugar Pie sponsored Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
Sugar Pie was owned by a young woman torn between lifestyle changes (going off to college) and the well-being of her beloved pet. After several months of research and careful consideration, she decided to turn her over to CFN to find a new home. It was immediately clear to us that Sugar Pie had been living with a case of undiagnosed insulinoma. She had daily episodes of drooling while crouching motionless and staring into space. Her blood test confirmed that her glucose level was way below normal and surgery was recommended. She is recovering from her procedure and is gaining strength and energy daily. She is open to new ferret playmates as long as they are very gentle. Sugar Pie is from Marshall Farms.
Name:Grace Sex: F Age: 1-2 years Color: albino
Arrived: December 14, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Grace was dumped in her cage overnight at a local Goodwill drop off box. While she was fairly shy when she first arrived she loved to be handled and played with, and she quickly found a home with a family that was specifically looking for a sweet albino girl.
Name: Daria Sex: F Age: 3.5 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
Daria has the build of an east German weight lifter. This girl is buff! She is the product of a local breeder who had to make room for her new breeders so she was turned in to a shelter. Makes sense to me, NOT! If you breed them you are responsible for finding them good quality homes, period, or stop producing more! Daria arrived with fleas, ear mites, and an attitude. We've taken care of the first two, but have some work to do on attitude adjustment. We hope to convince her to stop biting, but don't think we will be able to convince her to like other ferrets. Daria still needs to be spayed, but won't be descented.
Name: Picara Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: shetland
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
Picara is a Spanish word used for a mischievious female rogue, a perfect name for this scruffy stray sprite. She arrived with fleas and ear mites and a plump body, but a sparse coat. We hope Picara's coat will improve now that the fleas have been eliminated. Picara is one of those ferrets that become tense when they are picked up and she has tried to bite when being reached for to be handled. We have been rewarding her with ferretone whenever she is handled and she seems to be settling down. She is also very happy to be able to play with other ferrets now that her ear mites are under control. Picara has a green tattoo in her ear that we've seen before, but don't know the origin of.
Name:Terra Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: November 2, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Pluto, Terra and Nova are a happy trio who like other ferrets. Their last owner had them 2 months and they were acquired from a family friend. They were relenquished because they "require too much attention." They have been around children of all ages. Terra and Nova are from Marshall Farms.

Terra found a happy home on her own.

Name: Lenore Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: chocolate
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
Lenore arrived as a skinny little rescue girl with no name or history. She was probably used as a breeder and still needs to be sterilized. Lenore has spent a lot of time at the food bowl since her arrival and has gained a fair amount of weight. She is still a small girl, but has a lovely chocolate colored coat.
Name: Bob Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: Silver
Name: Jay Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: Siamese Sable
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
These two boys arrived from Montanna recently with their owner, who then found he had to move yet again, but this time to Costa Rica, where the hot steamy weather and minimal vet care prevented him from taking these kids along. Bob and Jay are very sweet, and Jay shows signs of deafness. We'll try them out with other ferrets soon. Each have what appears to be the letter H tattood in his ear.
Name: Hershey Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Arrived: September 4, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Hershey was purchased as a pet for a youngster that soon ignored him. He was turned over to a relative who wanted to do the right thing for him, but couldn't deal with his odor. She felt he smelled really bad (his name was Stinky), but we were not able to discern any stronger odor than your average healthy ferret normally has. We didn't want him labelled with the name "stinky" and since he is so darn sweet and gives lots of kisses, his name was changed to Hershey. Hershey likes rides and enjoys going out and looking at the world from the safety of a carry bag. His favorite games are hide-n-seek and peek-a-boo.
Name: Scooby-Doo Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: pale silver
Name: Shaggy Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: panda
Arrived: 2001
Placed: December, 2002
This lanky pair of lads have more energy than is good for them: a ferret-proofing challenge! They are also very fond of using their mouths when playing, so probably aren't a good choice for first time owners. They have been a bit aggressive with other ferrets, but as long as the other ferret doesn't get too upset, they eventually discontinue the bully behavior. Scooby has big beautiful eyes and is more silvery on his hindquarters than Shaggy. Shaggy has the look of Wardenberg's syndrome with small wide-set eyes, and may be deaf, but these guys operate as such a pair, it is hard to tell how much Shaggy is picking up from Scooby's reactions. Shaggy continues to be under observation to determine whether or not he is deaf. Scooby-Doo and Shaggy are from Triple F.
Name:Bud Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: sable/cinnamon
Name:Mika Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: sable
Arrived: October 21, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Bud's and Mika's second owner had them for 2 years, but they were originally acquired in New Mexico. They are ok with cats and kids. They were relenquished because a job commitments allowed no time to give them attention. Bud is from Marshall Farms and appears to have symptoms of adrenal disease.
Name: Spumoni Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: September 3, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Spumoni arrived as a stray through Multnomah County Animal Control. He had several lumps on his skin that I though were mast cell tumors after a quick look, which are very common. A second stray arrived shortly thereafter and had a huge lump under her skin that was unmistakable as the larvae of Cuterebra, a type of fly. You could see its breathing hole and it was the size of a marble. I was horrified to realize later that what I had thought were mast cell tumors on Spumoni were really smaller larvae. Poor Spumoni had three larvae removed and had to have the wounds the maggots created flushed and packed with antibiotic ointment twice a day. He is doing great, but looks rediculous with shaved spots here and there on his body. He is a very mellow ferret and appreciates a good back scratch. He gets along ok with other ferrets. Spumoni is from Marshall Farms.
Name:Hagrid Sex: M Age: less than 1 year Color: chocolate
Arrived: November 16, 2002
Placed: December, 2002
Hagrid is so cute and adorable that the employees at Southwest Washington Humane Society in Vancouver, where he was turned in as a stray, didn't want to see him go. Hagrid is a big, happy, healthy cute boy who is destined to break hearts. Hagrid is from Marshall Farms. Have we mentioned just how cute he is?
Name: Erwin Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Arrived: July 27, 2002
Placed: December 2002
Erwin was purchased from Petco and is from Marshall Farms. This seetheart does great with kids and cats, but his previous owners couldn't take care of him. Erwin enjoys the company of other ferrets.
Name: Denali Sex: M Age: 4.5 years Color: dark eyed white
Name: Saki Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: silver
Arrived: September 1, 2002
Placed: December 2002
Denali originally came to the CFN in January of 1999 after being found in the walls of an empty apartment. He was adopted by a family with another ferret, but was returned to the CFN later. He was adopted again along with the rest of his current family, but again returned to the CFN through no fault of his own. Denali has a gorgeous white coat with a few black patches and huge black eyes. He is from a Canadian breeder. Saki was a petite sweetie who loves playing with people and other ferrets and deserves to be the center of attention for a change, since she wasn't the "favorite" of her former owner, primarily because of her less than exemplary litterbox values. Saki died just after surgery in September 2002. Saki was from Marshall Farms.
Name:Zorro Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: sable/cinnamon
Arrived: October 13, 2002
Placed: November, 2002
Zorro was purchased from Gresham Petco. He likes cats and is good with kids. He likes the outdoors and going for walks. He was relenquished because of a drastic change in the owner's living situation. He was quickly adopted to become a friend for another CFN ferret.
Name: Rain Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: silver
Arrived: July 16, 2002
Rain is beautiful, but prefers the company of people over that of other ferrets. She was a stray and is from Marshall Farms.
Name:Fabio Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: albino
Arrived: October 19, 2002
Placed: November 30, 2002
This stray from Hillsboro wandered into a good samaratin's garage and he called the CFN. This big, fluffy, happy boy gets along with anything that moves. Fabio is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Geoffrey Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: dark sable
Arrived: August 11, 2002
Placed: November, 2002
Geoffrey is a stray from the Vancouver area. He arrived with a bad case of ear mites, but now that they are gone, he can enjoy his playtime interacting with other ferrets. Geoffrey has a sweet face with a very black nose. He is from Marshall Farms and like most ferrets from them, he is very gentle and would be a good choice for a first-time owner.
Name:Brigit Sex: F Age: 1-2 years Color: sable mitt with roaning
Arrived: November 6, 2002
Placed: November, 2002
Brigit was a stray and turned into Multnomal County Animal Control in Gresham. She was adopted so fast that we didn't even get a photo for her!
Name: Brandywine Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: August 5, 2002
Placed: November 2002
Brandywine is a stunning cinnamon who loves to play with people and other ferrets. She was found as a stray and is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Maxie Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2002
Placed: November 2002
Maxie is a refugee from Nevada. She has a common story: ferret's owner goes off to college and can't take the ferret with them, parents don't want to take care of it. Luckily for Maxie, a relative from Oregon took her in, but their situation was precarious since they were not allowed to have pets. They noticed she was going bald and after several trips to different vets they found out she would need adrenal surgery. This news caused them to turn to CFN for help. Maxie is very sweet, but doesn't really like other ferrets much. She will be undergoing surgery to remove her left adrenal gland in the near future. Maxie is from Marshall Farms.

Maxie's surgery was a success, and her coat is stunning. This friendly little would love to spice up your home with her fiesty attitude and inquisative nature.

Name: Curmudgeon sponsored Sex: M Age: 4-5 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2001
Curmudgeon was not a pretty sight when he arrived as a stray and it wasn't a surprise when no one claimed the grizzled old guy. He was scrawny with scraggly hair and fleas. He even sported a couple of wart like protuberances. His appearance and urination behavior pointed to the need for adrenal surgery in his near future. The surgery was difficult with both the right and left glands removed, but he recovered quickly and has been laying on the fat layers and filling in his thin fur for winter. Curmudgeon prefers his own company and the company of humans more than other ferrets. He tolerates other ferrets, but doesn't enjoy their companionship.

Curmudgeon died at the end of November: this sweet boy was a shelter favorite and will be missed.

Name: Emma Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Arrived: 2002
Placed: October 2002
Not much is known about Emma. She was turned over to CFN by a vet tech working at a clinic where Emma had been left to be euthanized since they didn't have money to give her vet care. She was emaciated, dehydrated, and had loose stool. The vet tech had given her supportive care until she was stable enough to be turned over to us. Emma has steadily continued to gain weight and doesn't appear to have anything wrong with her health to have caused her to be in such a debilitated condition. She is a wonderful sprite that gets along well with others and often has an adorable expression on her face with her mouth hanging open. Emma is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Juniper Sex: F Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Arrived: September 1, 2002
Placed: October, 2002
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. Juniper is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Malcom Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: badger/blaze
Name: MacDuff Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: panda/blaze
Arrived: September 15, 2002
Placed: October, 2002
These boys both came from Petco and were relinquished with the lame excuse of "moving". These guys are so cute it hurts, and it seems unfair for them to have cornered the market on cute: we wish we could bottle it and spread it around to the less fortunate ferrets. Malcom and Macduff are both from Marshall Farms and both are deaf.
Name: Peabody Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: silver
Arrived: August 26, 2002
Placed: October, 2002
Peabody is a very laid back pudgy guy. He arrived as a stray and was never claimed. He made lots of ferrets friends before he was adopted along with Winnie in October. Peabody is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Winnie Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: silver mitt
Arrived: September 3, 2002
Placed: October, 2002
A very cute and playful young sprite, Winnie was rescued by a good samaratin from living outdoors scavenging for leftovers at a trailer park in Winlock, WA. Apparently she had been living on her own for several months, and was thin, infested with fleas and ear mites as well as the larvae of Cuterebra flies under her skin. Winnie hasn't let her spell of bad times influence her outlook on life. She has rebounded quickly gaining weight and energy and she does a dance of joy that puts a smile on the face anyone that sees her. Winnie is from Marshall Farms. Winnie was adopted with Peabody in October.
Name: Sheba Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: silver
Arrived: 2001
Sheba has very soft, honey-colored fur and behaves as if she is blind. She lost her lifelong cagemate a few months ago. The group home were she lived had been trying to find her a new home after her cagemate died since the only person that had really cared about them was no longer living at the facility and Sheba wasn't getting any human interaction. Sheba is from Marshall Farms. Sheba passed away in September.
Name: Razmataz Sex: F Age: 3.5 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: September 1, 2002
Placed: September, 2002
Razmataz has no identifying tattos, but she is a doll and loves her cagemates dearly. We'll soon have a photo of her available.
Name: Buster Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: sable
Arrived: July 12, 2002
Placed: September, 2002
Buster is a darling boy who lived in California until his parents no longer cared for him. He was then flown up to Portland and to the CFN where he's waiting for his special someone. Buster is from Marshall Farms. More info coming soon.
Name: Thunder Sex: M Age: 3.5 years Color: sable
Name: Dodger Sex: M Age: 3.5 years Color: butterscotch
Arrived: May, 2002
Placed: September, 2002
In brief: the 3rd owner of this pair had them for only 6 months before they were unable to keep them because of being evicted from their living quarters and having to move into a camper. Thunder has a cataract in one eye. They play well with other ferrets. Look like they may be from a local breeder.
Name: Calypso Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Name: Cousteau Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Arrived: June 30, 2002
Placed: September, 2002
Calypso and Cousteau had to be given up because the mother of the family had died and the husband was having to move and be a single parent to their two kids. Calypso and Cousteau have lived with kids and get along with other ferrets. Calypso may be deaf. Calypso and Cousteau are both from Marshall Farms.

Name: Howard Sex: M Age: < 1 year Color: sable
Name: Macy Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Arrived: August 7, 2002
Placed: September, 2002
Howard and Macy are an unassuming but sweet pair of ferrets who quickly found a home!
Name: Benny Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: sable
Name: Jerry Sex: F Age: 6 months Color: sable
Arrived: July 7, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
This pair of sweethearts had to be relinquished soon after they were purchased from Petco because of allergy issues. They have been well taken care of and the owners insisted they be placed together even though they have only been together since April. They have been around dogs and have not gotten to play with other ferrets yet because of ear mites. Benny and Jerry are from Marshall Farms
Name: Sam Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: silver
Arrived: August 8, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Sam was given to the Cowlitz County Humane Society because of poor litterpan use (and lazy owners). Sam does as well as the average ferret with the litter pan, and he loves people and other ferrets. Sam is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Skippy Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: butterscotch
Arrived: July, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Skippy arrived at the CFN in rough shape, with a host of fleas and earmites, and a bare patch of fur between his shoulders. Sippy is now clean and loves to romp with other ferrets, and thinks people are great sport too!
Name: Chomper Sex: F Age: 4.5 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Missy Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: dark sable
Arrived: 2000
Placed: August 2002
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 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 their first owner's family. They have lived with young children and dogs and get along well with other ferrets. Missy and Chomper were adopted in March of 2001, but came back to the shelter when their new owners decided to move to Hawaii. They are both from Marshall Farms.

Name: Harry Potter Sex: M Age: < 1 year Color: sable
Arrived: July 21, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Harry is an adorable youngster who loves to be held and cuddled, but even more than that he loves to play with people and with ferrets. Harry quickly found a home with a nice family and a slightly spoiled princess ferret who still isn't completely thrilled with the idea of having to share her family's attention with someone else -- even someone as cute as Harry. Harry is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Cookie Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Arrived: July 16, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Cookie was turned into the humane society because she had killed a second litter of kittens (or so they were told), and thus she was seperated from her life long cage mate. And yet we have found that Cookie does great with kids, cats and dogs (and probably other ferrets too). Cookie is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Abigail Sex: F Age: 3.5 years Color: albino
Name: Max Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: silver mitt
Arrived: May, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
This pair arrived with two pages of hand written biographical information detailing their daily routine and the timing of every corn puff and lick of ferrettone throughout the day. They obviously trained their human well. It is hard to believe these well loved pets were surrendered to CFN, but the retired couple could not afford to give Abigail the adrenal surgery they found out she needed and were also going to be traveling around the country and didn't feel they could take the ferrets with them. They were both rescued from situations of neglect in the past. Abigail is deaf but is very affectionate with humans and is getting along with other ferrets. Max has been very slow to adapt to his new situation and is still getting used to his new environment. Their former owners did not think the pair were very bonded to each other, so they can go to separate homes with other ferret companions. Abigail is from Triple F and Max is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Sebastian Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Sebastian was abandoned by former roommate, and is a very playful and fun ferret. THis boy has been around a dog and a cat, but has no tattoos.
Name: Bernard Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: butterscotch
Arrived: May, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
In brief: second owner unable to keep because of lack of time. Handsome, likes other ferrets. Bernard hated being in his cage, and now he finally has a home of his own where he can run around and play until he's ready to go back up. Bernard is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Tatonka Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Sequoia Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: June 15, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Tatonka and Sequoia been together most of their lives, and have been around cats and kids in their first home. They get along with other ferrets and love human interraction. These two boys were relinquished because of their owners' of lack of time to give them attention -- we've heard that before. Tatonka and Sequoia are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Muppet Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Arrived: June 24, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Muppet arrived as a stray and was never claimed. He is mostly fluffy fur, with a sweet and gentle personality. Muppet loves other ferrets and people. Muppet is from Marshall Farms
Name: Newt Sex: F Age: 3 months Color: badger/blaze
Arrived: June 26, 2002
Placed: August, 2002
Newt is cute with a capital "C". It is hard to believe a kit this young could manage to escape from her home and that no one would be looking for her. She wondered into someone's back yard and was luckily found before a predator got her or the heat took its toll on her little body. Newt was dehydrated and skinny, but she enjoys life to the fullest. She likes wrestling with other ferrets, playing with people, and attacking clover flower heads when she gets the chance. Newt is totally deaf, which is not uncommon with ferrets that have a stripe on their head. Newt is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Coon Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2000
Coon and Rascal were well fed by their former owner, but were starving for attention. Both have done well with kids and dogs as playmates. Coon is an explosive player and it is hard to believe she is a four year old. She has exhibited Olympic jumping capabilities since she arrived. They are both descented.

These sweet kids found a home, but came back when their new owners moved to California. Rascal now lives in a foster home, and Coon lives and plays with a large group of ferrets.

Coon passed away in August of 2002 and has rejoined Rascal.

Name: Neville Sex: M Age: 5 months Color: sable with roaning
Arrived: May, 2002
Placed: July, 2002
A severely emaciated stray found with fleas and earmites, this affectionate little guy is eating (and pooping) to make up for lost opportunities. Although he is probably a month older than Rowland, who weighed 860 grams when he arrived, Neville barely tipped the scales at 500 grams, but he's doing his best to catch up. Neville is very sweet. From Marshall Farms.

Neville is now a chunky big boy who plays great with people and ferrets!

Name: Shrek Sex: M Age: 6 months Color: sable
Name: Pangeo Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: sark silver
Arrived: 2001
Placed: July 2002
Pangeo was sold as a female with biting issues that had been returned to the pet store. His current owners purchased him when he was 1 year of age, having lived most of his life in the pet store (not a nice pet store I might add, we've had several rescues that came from them). Pangeo has a cataract and may also be deaf. The owners were having a very hard time dealing with his biting until they got Shrek. Pangeo's personality made a complete turn around when he got his little buddy. Shrek was just a little guy when he met Pangeo, but he had a huge impact on Pangeo's quality of life. Now Pangeo is very happy and chuckles loudly when playing with his large group of ferret friends. Like the character he is named after, Shrek is a burly guy with a heart of gold. He still seems to be growing heavier and sweeter every day. He loves other ferrets and people. Shrek and Pangeo were relinquished because of finances and an unplanned pregnancy. Shrek is from Marshall Farms and Pangeo was probably bred at the pet store he was purchased from, but he has been neutered and descented. cute.
Name: Budah Sex: F Age: ~1 year Color: sable
Arrived: July 2002
Budah was found wandering the streets near the CFN's primary veterinarian. Budah was a small but very chunky girl who obviously had been cared for very well, and so signs were put up and an ad placed in the newspaper to try and find her owner. While at the CFN Budah displayed a very Zen like attitude towards life and all the attention we lavished upon her (honestly, she moves like a wind up toy). One of the volunteers began to call her Budah, and the name stuck. Shortly there after Budah was reunited with her owner, where she is once again lives happily.
Name: Rebel Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: sable
Name: Regis Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: 2002
Placed: July 2002
Rebel is a dark sable with freckles on his nose and the tiniest rim of white fur on the edges of his black feet. Regis is a sinuous cinnamon-colored boy with a lot of energy. These guys had to be given up by their second owner because of the owner's precarious health. Regis and Rebel have lived with other ferrets and dogs. They are currently being treated for ear mites. Rebel is from Marshall Farms and Regis is from Triple F.
Name: Boots Sex: M Age: 7 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Bandit Sex: F Age: 7 years Color: silver
Arrived: 2000
This pair of old timers still have some good times left in them after living a good life with their first owners, who "out grew" them. They were acquired as kits and were neutered and descented by their owners. Boots has a very coarse coat and a bare naked tail we hope will improve with an higher quality diet. Boots has the potential to be a lap ferret and doesn't mind sharing his playtime with other ferrets. Bandit isn't as friendly with other ferrets and so far has attacked the ferrets she has met.

These two kids are doing just great in their foster home, receiving all sorts of TLC, gaining weight, and being more active than ever before.

Boots died in early January from lymphoma. His last months were spent in a great foster home where he was pampered, loved, and held until the very end. Bandit is still hanging in there, with the help of her foster mom.

Bandit joined Boots over the Rainbow Bridge in July of 2002. In her last few months Bandit amazingly made friends with Alex, another special needs ferret owned by her foster mom. All of us miss Bandit.

Name: China Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: silver mitt
Arrived: June 10, 2002
Placed: July 12, 2002
China was a scraggly stray that arrived with an ulcerated bald patch on each of her haunches. The only thing that we could imagine could have caused that was urine burns from laying in filth. We will never know, but she has gained 200 grams since she arrived and the fur has started to grow in nicely already. China is a beautiful very well adjusted gentle ferret from Marshall Farms.
Name: Coco Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2002
Placed: July, 2002
Coco is a beautiful rich chestnut color and has a very affectionate personality. She was given excellent care by her former owners who had to find her a new home when they decided to move to Hawaii where ferrets are illegal. Coco gets along well with other ferrets and has lived with children. Coco is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Fury Sex: F Age: 6 years Color: sable
Name: Jasper sponsored Sex: M Age: 6 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2000
This darling pair of old-timers have had the same owner their entire lives. Sadly, they were relinquished to the Cascade Ferret Network because they no longer fit into their owner's lifestyle and were not getting the attention they should. Fury and Jasper both love to give kisses. Fury has a very distinctive face, her nose and upper mandible are somewhat twisted to the side. Both are from Marshall Farms.

Fury died in 2001 and Jasper passed away in July of 2002.

Name: Penny Sue Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Ginger May Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: 2001
Placed: June, 2002
These good natured girls have lived with the same person until now. They have been well taken care of, but were given up for adoption after some lifestyle changes resulted in a lack of time to give them the attention all ferrets need. They get along well with other ferrets and have lived with cats. Penny Sue and Ginger May are from Marshall Farms.
Name: Rowland Sex: M Age: 4 months Color: butterscotch
Arrived: May, 2002
Placed: June, 2002
In brief: Stray covered in burrs and infested with fleas and ear mites. Very gentle loves playing with people and other ferrets. Too cute for words (there ought to be a law). From Marshall Farms.

This boy quickly grew into a large happy chunky kind of guy, and he found a home down in Southern Oregon.

Name: Estelle Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable
Arrived: 2002
Placed: June, 2002
Estelle is very playful, gentle, affectionate, and friendly with humans and other ferrets. Estelle is a great choice for a first time ferret owner. She is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Shalimar sponsored Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: cinnamon
Arrived: 2002
Shalimar arrived with Shariff: this couple's current caretakers rescued them from a situation of neglect where they were infested with fleas and ear mites, given poor quality food and allowed no play time. The rescuers were unable to keep Shalimar and Shariff because of changing living arrangements. Shalimar has various health issues and was not particularly happy to share her cage with anyone, and so Shariff was paired up with another shelter ferret. Shalimar is from Marshall Farms.

Shalimar crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in June of 2002.

Name: Butters Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: June
Arrived: May, 2002
This guy is so animated, you have to see him to believe how happy and excited one roly-poly guy can be -- he is very talkative, very stocky, and carries his tail held up in the air as he bounces around. Butters loves any interaction with people or other ferrets, and as far as he's concerned everything is just swell. You have to meet him in person to fully appreciate all of his buttery goodness. Butters arrived as a stray and was never claimed, but it's hard to believe no one was missing this super cute boy. Butters looks like he is from a local breeder.

As expected, Butters was so popular he actually had a waiting list of people who wanted him, and so he found a wonderful new home very quickly.

Name: Huggers Sex: M Age: 6 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Abby Normal Sex: F Age: 4 years Color: silver
Placed: June
Huggers and Abby are real sweethearts who were purchased for a teenager from Petco, who then ignored them for more than a year. The teenager's parent's weren't taking good enough care of them, and so relatives stepped in to help get the ferrets into a better environment. Abby's lower left canine protrudes outward (hence her unusual name). Both have been around cats, and both play like youngsters.

Huggers and Abby went to the same wonderful home as Bart and Lisa!

Name: Bart Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Lisa Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: butterscotch
Placed: May
This duo was given to the former owner as a birthday present and were given up after a year because the owner needed to lighten the pet load in the home. According to him, they just got into too much trouble whenever they were allowed to play out side their cage (prison). Bart is a big burly boy and Lisa is a petite girl. Bart and Lisa lived with dogs, cats and kids in their former home. Lisa is from Marshall Farms, but Bart does not have any tattoos to identify his origin.

Bart and Lisa went to the same great home as Huggers and Abby.

Name: Tiffany sponsored Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: sable
Died: May 24, 2002
Tiffany is the casualty of a divorce. Because of her owner's situation, her signs of adrenal disease were not attended to. She arrived looking as if someone had played a cruel joke on her by trying to make her look like a recently groomed poodle: her entire body was totally bald, but she has normal fur on her head, legs and the last half of her tail. Maybe her embarrassing appearance explains her lack of patience when having to endure anything she doesn't enjoy. Tiffany is not shy about letting humans know when she isn't happy about something they are doing, a swift nip is the result. Tiffany is a talker who seems to enjoy roughhousing with ferret buddies and is never short on energy. She recently underwent adrenal surgery and we are anxious to see how she will look and behave once the over active secretions from the removed gland dissipate. Tiffany is from a breeder in Canada.

Tiffany exudes confidence and attitude, and she's a joy to be around, as long as you're human!

Tiffany was more to us than just another furry face -- we took her into our home as a foster ferret, but she became one of the family. Tiffany loved getting out for walks and hand wrestling with her people, and she had enough attitude for any five normal ferrets. We lost our dear little Tiffy quite unexpectedly near the end of May. Her activity level and appetite had dropped suddenly, and a trip to the vet resulted in blood tests that indicated lymphoma. Less than two weeks later our little sweetheart was gone. While the loss of any of our pets is hard, losing a loner, like Tiffany, who needed us the most and gave us the most back in return has been almost unbearable. We still expect Tiffany to be ready to come out to play after our other pets have gone back to sleep, we catch ourselves making up her medications in the evening, and we still can't believe our Tiffer Toes has left us.

Name: Nico Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: albino
Placed: May
Nico's owner was moving across country and couldn't take this sweet boy with him. Nico has a veterinary insurance policy. Nico gets along with other ferrets and has been around a kitten. Nico is from Marshall Farms (via Petco).
Name: Pumpkin Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: butterscotch
Name: Acorn Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: dark sable
Placed: May
Pumpkin and Acorn are looking for a new home because the work schedule of their owner left them alone for days at a time and they were not getting any human interaction. Acorn was previously owned by an acquaintance of the current owner and Pumpkin was purchased to help keep Acorn company when they were left alone. The owner felt their current situation was unacceptable and she arranged to have them transported to CFN. Unfortunately she was apparently unaware that Acorn had a huge abdominal tumor that should have been addressed long ago. We rushed Acorn to the vet to be evaluated for surgery to remove the growth. The vet thought it was a left adrenal gland, but it turned out to be her left kidney that was swollen with urine because of a blocked ureter. The surgery went well and she is doing great with her remaining kidney. Pumpkin and Acorn are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Ferdinand Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: May
Ferdinand seems insecure despite his enormous size. He was found as an unneutered stray and was never claimed. Ferdinand hates being in a cage and has thrown a tremendous tantrum since arriving, repeatedly unhooking his hammock, dumping his litterpan, and even banged so hard and long at his cage mesh that he caused the cage to shimmy off the table! We put up barriers to prevent the cage from moving and finally found a hammock attachment that he couldn't destroy. He has calmed down a lot since being neutered in early March.

Ferdinand is quite the sweat-heart: he adores people and loves all other ferrets (so much so that he now shares a cage with Bethwyn). Ferdinand has obviously spent his entire life couped up in a cage, and is just now learning how to play, but he's proving himself to be a gentle giant. Ferdinand has great balance and frequently stands up on his hind legs to peer about, looking like a small river otter.

Name: Topaz Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: sable mitt
Placed: May
This beautiful sprite couldn't live up to the expectations of the person that adopted her as a buddy for her first ferret. Topaz didn't turn out to be as "perfect" as the original pet: she didn't use the litterpan 100%, "smelled", and would nip people other than her owner. She must be on her best behavior since coming back because we haven't had any issues with her and she is a wonderful playmate with other ferrets. Topaz is from a local breeder and has not been descented.
Name: Archer Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: butterscotch
Placed: May
Archer was found as a flea ridden stray. Since coming to us she has found that she enjoys the company of other ferrets and adores cheweasels. Archer may be a candidate for adrenal surgery. She is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Sinjin Sex: F Age: 3.5 years Color: sable
Name: Pele Sex: M Age: 3.5 years Color: sable
Placed: May
This gentle and friendly pair of ferrets started out on the wrong foot with humans: their previous owners kept them for only four days before deciding they didn't like ferrets. It took almost that long for Pele and Sinjin to find a new permanent home with doting a doting family to pamper them as is befitting ferrets. Relinquished from a good home because the owner developed severe allergies to ferrets. Sinjin has shown symptoms of adrenal disease in the past, but is currently not exhibiting any signs of the problem. This pair is from Marshall Farms.

Sinjin died unexpectedly the night after adrenal surgery in early May. Mercifully Pele found a home with another friendly ferret a short time later.

Name: Sassy Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: pewter mitt
Name: Sadie Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: May
This pair of rambunctious sprites can be placed separately as long as the homes have other ferrets. Sassy and Sadie have lived with other ferrets and dogs. These girls had to be given up by their second owner because of the owner's precarious health. They are currently being treated for ear mites. Sassy and Sadie were bred by Two Pole Pumpkin and were spayed and descented by their current owner when they were physically mature.
Name: Sprint Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Placed: April
Sprint is an adorable little silver girl who loves human attention, and who tolerates other ferrets who are nice to her. Sprint is not shy about showing appreciation for the time spent playing with her, and she's more than happy to snuggle and give dainty kisses. Sprint is deaf, but it doesn't affect her desire to talk, and you can hear her chuckle with enthusiasm during play time. Currently Sprint comes out to play in the house of Network Coordinator with her pet ferret Venus, another silver female ferret with a similar personality.

Sprint went to a home in southern Oregon!

Name: Zenith Sex: F Age: 3 years Color: silver
Placed: April
It is pretty sad what some people think is adequate care for their ferret. This ferret was found and the family was delighted to keep her since their son had wanted a ferret, but they didn't want to pay the cost of getting one from a pet store. They had no idea how old Zenith was and she given no vaccines or vet care while she lived with them. The son moved out of state to live with another relative and the ferret had to be left behind and was brought to CFN. Zenith arrived thin with a very sparse coat of fur and loaded with fleas. She was also living with a very healthy population of ear mites. They were very proud of the cage they had bought for her, but it had nothing in it except one of those cheap nylon hammocks. Not all ferrets are happy to arrive in a shelter, but I think Zenith has benefited from it. She is much happier without the fleas and ear mites, eating a higher quality food, and enjoying the multiple fleece lined hammocks and sleep sacks in her cage. Zenith is from Marshall Farms.

Zenith went home with her cage-mate, Shariff!

Name: Shariff Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: silver
Placed: April
Shariff arrived with Shalimar, both of whom were rescued from a life of neglect. The rescuers were unable to keep Shalimar and Shariff because of changing living arrangements. Shariff loves to rough house with all other ferrets, and is very fond of people too. Shariff is from Triple F.

Shariff found a home with his cage-mate Zenith.

Name: Felix Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: April
Felix is unable to use his hind legs normally, probably because of some sort of physical injury sustained in his past. He can move his legs, but cannot support his body, and ends up dragging his hindquarters. Because of his injury he does not have control over his bowels and must have his bladder evacuated manually. In addition to his paralysis, Felix also has a chordoma at the end of his tail which needs to be surgically removed. Felix's current owner was unable to afford medical care for him. Despite his handicap, Felix is very playful and gives loads of kisses. He likes other ferrets and has lived with cats. Felix is from Marshall Farms
Name: Babette Sex: F Age: 8 months Color: cinnamon mitt
Placed: April
Babette was owned by a person who lost his job and was living in his car. An acquaintance tried to be her caretaker until the owner could get back on his feet, but her dog was not compatible. Babette is a sweet and beautiful sprite who plays well with other ferrets. Babette is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Jacques Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: sable
Placed: April
Jacques has a bewildered look on his face and it is difficult not to imagine him wondering why he is here instead of at home with his family. Jacques is looking for a new home because he no longer fit into his family's household once the human offspring became a toddler. Jacques gets along with other ferrets and has been around cats and dogs, but plays too rough with young children. Jacques is from Triple F.
Name: Luna Sex: F Age: 5.5 years Color: sterling silver
Died: April
Luna is the oldest but sweetest ferret of he group of retired breeders. She is much more petite than the others and seems to have a much better attitude toward being handled. She looks like a giant teddy bear hamster.

Sweet little Luna died during surgery in early April. Luna had a variety of health problems, not the least of which was lymphoma, although she put up a brave fight while she was with us. We will certainly miss her gentle nature.

Name: Muffin Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable
Reunited: March
Muffin was found wandering around for nearly a week before she was captured and transported to CFN. Muffin arrived loaded with fleas and ear mites. Despite almost week on her own, she is very chubby and is an outrageously sweet cuddle bunny (MST3K fans should consider her equivalent to Nummy Muffins Cocool Butter on the cute scale). Muffin is from Marshall Farms (Nummy Muffins Cocool Butter is from Deep 13).

Muffin (who's real name is Baby) was reunited with her owners!

Name: Maconey Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: dark sable
Placed: March
Maconey is a pretty little sprite that is dark sable with a black nose. Maconey was abandoned by her original owner and has been eking out an existence from former acquaintances of her past owner. She was rescued from her situation by a CFN volunteer that knew her predicament and arranged to bring her to us to find a better living arrangement. Unfortunately Maconey reserves all her playtime exclusively for humans, no ferrets allowed! She is the perfect single ferret companion for the first time owner. Maconey is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Kodiak Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: March
Kodiak is a gorgeous bear of a boy that arrived as an unneutered stray. He is an avid chuckler when playing and is very talented with ping-pong balls. He was neutered February 20th and has not completely eliminated the testosterone from his system yet. We are waiting for another week or so before we introduce him to other ferrets (he's been in with other ferrets for short sessions already, and he is amazingly gentle with them, although his obsessive need to hold other ferrets down and groom them isn't appreciated by everyone).

Kodiak has calmed down a great deal and now plays with a large group of ferrets (including Ferdinand). Kodiak is very active and is always found frolicing with a ferret friend, or on his own.

Name: Zephyr Sex: F Age: 9 months Color: sable
Name: Flurry Sex: F Age: 9 months Color: albino
Placed: March
It is hard to believe anyone would willingly give up such a sweet and gentle pair of ferrets. These two are very well adjusted happy lasses that get along well with other ferrets. The perfect pair for first time owners. Zephyr and Flurry are from Marshall Farms. This wonderful pair briefly had a home in July, but the family's little boy developed a severe allergic reaction to them, and so they tearfully returned these two sweethearts, who are once again looking for a good home.
Name: Strider Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: March
Strider is one super sweet ferret. He loves people and tolerates other ferrets even if they aren't very nice to him. Strider wandered into a community center swimming pool area and was never claimed. He is named after the character in The Fellowship of the Ring ("All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost..."), and he would make a wonderful companion for any home. Strider is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Escher Sex: M Age: 3 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: March
Escher is a fun loving ferret with a few special needs. Escher loves to give kisses, but has a heart condition and has adrenal disease (he'll have surgery soon). While he doesn't do particularly well with other ferrets, Escher has fit in with large, easy going ferrets who can handle some fussing and mild aggression as he settles in.
Name: Frosty Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: dark eyed white
Name: Angel Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: March
Frosty and Angel are a scrawny pair of sprites that were left at a Petco on their owner's way out of the state. A sympathetic employee took them home, but was unable to keep them where she lives and after a few months they ended up here looking for a permanent position in a loving home. They lived with a kitten and toddler in their temporary home. Frosty is from Marshall Farms and may be deaf, and Angel is from Triple F. Angel isn't very fond of other ferrets and would be happiest in a home with just Frosty as a ferret companion.
Name: Jonas Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Chester Sex: M Age: 2.5 years Color: cinnamon
Placed: March
These two guys are a very well adjusted pair of ferrets that like other ferrets and would be good for a first time owner. They have had regular vet care and need to stay on a special diet that their former owner found works best for them. They had to be relinquished because of their owner's allergy issues. Jonas is from Triple F and Chester is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Nigel sponsored Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Placed: March
Nigel is definitely a special needs ferret. He has health issues that give him a questionable future. Nigel has been through more than one home and the history of his condition is unclear. He is unable to use his hind legs normally, but he can walk and gets around even on slick surfaces if he goes slowly. His biggest problem is he seems to have no control over his bowel or urinary tract. Luckily he has a great attitude and loves to play with people and other ferrets. Nigel is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Sapphire Sex: F Age: 4 to 5 years Color: pale silver
Placed: March
Sapphire is a beautiful sprite with burgundy eyes and a soft coat of white fur touched with pearly gray on the shoulders and a few spots on her head. She is thrilled to have ferret friends to play with her even though she has been without companions in the past. Sapphire came to us when her owner was evicted from his home as was living on the street. Sapphire was left behind on the porch and when her water ran out, we got a call from her temporary caretaker who was physically unable to get her more water because of mobility problems. We rushed over to retrieve her from a cage full of feces with empty food and water containers. Luckily she was in good condition except for a small population of fleas which she was soon rid of. Sapphire is probably from a private breeder, she has been descented.

Sapphire went home with Minerva.

Name: Minerva Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: sable
Placed: March
Minerva is a stately female that enjoys the company of other ferrets. She looks like she is from a local breeder, but we don't know anything about her because she arrived as a stray. Minerva seems to have a good attitude and enjoys leading an active lifestyle (no cuddling allowed). Minerva seems to be fine with cats, dogs and kids.

Minerva went home with Sapphire.

Name: Zinger Sex: M Age: 8 months Color: dark sable
Placed: March
Zinger was found hanging around a dumpster by a very excited little boy. He appeared very young and healthy, but no one claimed him, so he is available for adoption. He is your typical very energetic young boy that plays very hard and heavy with any other ferret that can tolerate his energy level. Zinger is from Marshall Farms
Name: Fivel Sex: M Age: 8 months Color: cinnamon with mitts and blaze
Placed: March
A clueless person purchased Fivel without exploring whether or not ferrets were a good match for them as a pet. They soon decided they didn't like the odor and dumped the responsibility of caring for the ferret onto a relative. The relative couldn't keep Fivel and brought him to us to be a more educated and prepared persons best buddy. In the short time he was owned, Fivel has been around a two year old and cats. He is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Jasmine Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: silver
Placed: March
This sweet girl was loved by her former owners. Sadly, Jasmine started showing undeniable signs of adrenal disease about 6 months ago and her owners wanted to do the right thing for her, but they could not figure out a way to come up with the hundreds of dollars necessary to do the surgery so they decided to turn her over to us where they knew she would get the medical care she needed. They were Jasmine's second owners and have enjoyed her companionship for 3 years. Jasmine was given regular vet care and vaccinations and fed high quality food. She is from Marshall Farms.
Name: Griffin Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: chocolate sable mitt
Name: Recon Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: February
Griffin is a very attractive and active girl with white mitts, bib, and kneepads. Recon (short for reconnaissance) is extremely athletic, jumping and scaling things to thoroughly explore his environment. They have been well taken care of, but are victim of the common malady of being owned by a minor that lost interest in them as they matured. They play well with people and other animals (including other ferrets). They are both from Triple F.
Name: Casper Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: albino
Name: Gypsy Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: February
Casper and Gypsy were rescued by some good Samaritans after being abandoned by their former owners a few months ago. Unfortunately the new home the good Samaritans found for them didn't work out, so the pair ended up coming here to find a new home. They are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Katie Sex: F Age: 4.5 years Color: albino
Placed: February
This retired breeder tolerates other ferrets and seems to be more trustworthy as far as nipping than some of the other ferrets from the same breeder. Katie has a beautiful coat and a solid body.

Katie went with Smike to a home and joined two other ferret playmates.

Name: Smike Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed February
Smike had the misfortune to be owned by a totally irresponsible pet owner who left him in his cage in the rain next to a dumpster without food, water or any shelter. Smike escaped from his cage and went wondering around the dumpster area before a neighbor noticed him and called us. Luckily Smike was still in the area by the time we got there to rescue him. Smike plugged into the food bowl as soon as he got here and has put on some weight. He moves abnormally in the hindquarters which may be because of muscle atrophy from being cage bound. Smike has a great personality despite his unfortunate history and seems to like other ferrets. He is from Marshall Farms.

Smike went with Katie to a home and joined two other ferret playmates.

Name: Sassafras Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Sasparillo Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: cinnamon
Placed: February
This beautiful duo was owned by the same person since they were kits. Sassafras and Sasparillo have been around kids and dogs in their past home.

Name: Marcelle Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: butterscotch
Name: Colette Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable mitt
Placed: February
These two make a very stylish pair and have really wonderful personalities. Collette is black with a dark nose, white toes, and big ears. She begs for human attention, but gets along well with other ferrets. Marcelle is a beautiful caramel color with facial markings that make him look like he is in mime make-up. They lived with cats in their former home and are looking for a new home because of their owner's "lack of time" (the number one excuse for given for why ferrets end up here). Marcelle and Collette are both from Marshall Farms.
Name: Rascal sponsored Sex: M Age: 4 years Color: dirty butterscotch
Died: Mid February
Coon and Rascal two were well fed by their former owner, but were starving for attention. Both have done well with kids and dogs as playmates. Rascal acts his age and is descented.

These sweet kids found a home, but came back when their new owners moved to California. Rascal now lives in a foster home, and Coon lives and plays with a large group of ferrets.

Rascal died after a very long struggle with ADV. His foster mom poured attention, love, and constant care upon this boy until the very end. Rascal will not be forgotten.

Name: Pebbles Sex: F Age: 1 year Color: sable
Name: BamBam Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: silver
Placed: February
BamBam and Pebbles were acquired through impulse pet store purchases and ended up in the custody of a person that was responsible enough to know he did not have the resources to take proper care of the pair even though he had become very attached to them after they had been abandoned by an acquaintance. BamBam and Pebbles have been around cats and dogs and get along with other ferrets. Pebbles is from Marshall Farms and BamBam's origin is unknown.
Name: Allegro Sex: M Age: 1.5 years Color: cinnamon
Name: Sonnet Sex: F Age: 1.5 years Color: sable
Placed: February
Allegro and Sonnet have been in three homes in their short life, mostly because of ignorant owners that made an impulse decision about owning a ferret. Their current owner has had them for about 6 months, but is now moving to California. She commented that they have always been skinny and they definitely arrived very under weight. They had been kept outside "up in the mountains" and fed a poor quality diet. Luckily their under weight condition was easily remedied with continuous access to a high quality diet. They have both been eating (and pooping) almost non stop since they got here! Miles was added just prior to their coming to the CFN and he was placed separately. These ferrets are very gentle and have been around cats, dogs, and kids. Allegro and Sonnet are from Marshall Farms.
Name: Mustang Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Placed: January
Escher arrived at the CFN with his buddies Mustang and Sprint. Escher loves to give kisses, but has a heart condition and has adrenal disease (he'll have surgery soon), Mustang is a big sweet, happy boy who has something akin to cerebral palsey, and Sprint is a typical fiesty silver girl with a lot of spunk and attitude.

Name: Lena sponsored Sex: F Age: 5 years Color: sable
Name: Weeble Sex: F Age: 7 years Color: sable
Placed: January
You couldn't find a more charming threesome of sable girls anywhere. These ladies have lead the good life, being spoiled by their loving owner, but unfortunately they are victims of the illegal status of ferrets in California. The trio get along well with cats and dogs. Lena and Weeble like to go on walks. Bonnie and Weeble are thieves, stealing keys in particular. Lena and Weeble are both from Marshall Farms and Lena has had several surgeries for adrenals and insulinomas. We would like to see all three go together.

Bonnie passed away in her foster mother's loving arms in late April of 2001. We dearly miss this sweet old girl who gave so much to us all.

Weeble joined Bonnie beyond the Rainbow Bridge in mid June. Weeble loved to cuddle with people, and used to spend chilly mornings sleeping inside Leonard's bathrobe while he read email or ate breakfast. She passed away in the care of her devoted and loving foster mom.

Lena was basically adopted by her foster mom some time ago, but we've been slow to move her onto the adopted page, so she's listed now as having that wonderful home which she has enjoyed for quite some time now.

Name: Valentino Sex: M Age: 1 year Color: sable
Name: Eros Sex: M Age: 2 years Color: sable
Name: Aphrodite Sex: F Age: 2 years Color: silver
Placed: January
This trio was turned in to Multnomah County Animal Control as a group of strays, which is hard to believe was true. They arrived near Valentine's Day and the Eros asteroid landing was in the news, so we went with a love theme from naming the three. We don't know anything about their background and we are observing them to try to decide how attached they are to each other and how well they would tolerate going to different homes. They are still in quarantine, so we haven't found out how they react to other ferrets yet. Eros is a beautiful sable from Triple F, Aphrodite is a very attractive light silver with mitts from Marshall Farms. Valentino is a dark sable with an adorable large white bib; he doesn't have any tattoos.

All three of these kids were adopted into the same loving home!
