We’ve slacked off on informing everyone that we’ve a new ferret — Polgara (Pole-Gar-Ah), whom we just call Gara (Gar-Ah). Her original name was “Chilly” and we adopted her from a local family a couple of months back. Due to her quarantine and some human health issues, we simply haven’t gotten around to getting pictures of her on here yet, for which I apologize.

While pogle was sitting in the playroom — poking ferrets with a felt-covered stick, causing joy and vexation all around — he apparently witnessed Gara climbing up onto the sick cage and leaping from the top (it’s about 2-3 feet off the ground). Down she goes…straight into the cornstarch peanut bin. He said she then repeated the action, quite deliberately. Crafty little minx!

Everyone is healthy, and they all have deslorelin implants to help prevent adrenal disease! (Minsc already had one, but got it refreshed; the others got their first implant.)

Pogle is working on recovering our stash of ferret photos off of our dead backup server; once that is done, we’ll get retrospective posts up for Minion and Zoe.

Until then, be comforted knowing that the other four are keeping us busy: *someferret* is stashing pogle’s boxers in the play tube. 😛

Zoe finally lost her fight with what was most likely lymphoma — and fight she did! Never have I met a stronger, more stubborn ferret than Zo-Zo Bean. She’ll be missed greatly by her mom Sydney in Ireland, and our little business is now so much smaller.
