Raja - A Friendly Ferret
That Loves to Cuddle
Susan Daffron talks to Christine Mathis from the Oregon Ferret Shelter about a four-year old female ferret named Raja. Sadly, Raja's former owner had to give her up because she couldn't afford Raja's veterinary expenses. The folks at the shelter took in Raja, and she had surgery for an adrenal tumor. She now is healthy and doing great. Raja actually would be great "first ferret" for someone because of her age and personality.
Unlike some ferrets, Raja is not a biter and loves being around people. Plus, although like any ferret, she does like to explore, she is not as high-energy as some ferrets. Because ferrets have special feeding and care requirements, Christine recommends that prospective owners get a copy of a book like Ferrets for Dummies before they adopt or purchase a pet ferret. The Oregon Ferret Shelter Web site also has a lot of great information on ferrets for those who may be considering sharing their home with one of these cute, playful critters.
