Arrived: August 22, 2006 Cyrano and Roxanne were turned over to a rescue organization
in Vancouver, Washington called Second Chance when their owner was
unable to find them a new home herself. She had been given the pair 9 months
before and they are several years old, so they must have been through
several owners at this point. Second Chance does not have much experience
with ferrets so they turned the pair over to CFN to find them a new home.
The pair is a little on the thin side, but are very gentle and playful with
humans and other ferrets. Cyrano is especially sweet to humans, and he
gives kisses all the time. Roxanne is quite lively and a tail wagger in
the tubes. They are both from Marshall Farms.
Cyrano was finally helped over the rainbow bridge on December 21 after a
long struggle with Inflammatory Bowel disease. He was a sweetheart who will
be greatly missed by his foster parent and his lifelong cagemate, Roxanne.
Roxanne passed away in 2010 to join her friend Cyrano.
Arrived: July 12, 2007 Adopted: 2010 Jules is very lucky to be alive. He was rescued by a Good Samaritan
that found him in the middle of a busy road during a very hot stretch of
weather in July. Not only was he thin and very dehydrated, he was also
unable to use his hind legs normally. An x-ray showed a fractured pelvis.
Jules was also lucky to be fostered by an experienced ferret owner who is
very capable of dealing with his special requirements. He needed
supplemental fluids and feedings, special medications and physical therapy.
He has improved greatly, but may always be disabled and need special care.
He has a wonderful personality and has bonded with one of the pets owned by
the foster parent. The foster parent says: "He is a doll. He and Annie
really like each other. She grooms him; he plays with her. This guy hasn't
an aggressive bone towards ferrets in his body. And he will lay on my
chest and lick my face for eons." Jules is from Marshall Farms
