Subject: Sleeping-Not-Dead-Syndrome

>>I went to pick zoe up from the cage, and when I got her, she
was completely limp. I shook her lightly with no response. I placed her
on the floor where she just lay there. I tried to stand her up and it was
like she was dead. she had no muscle response at all, normally a sleeping
ferret will stretch or something. I could see her breathing but it seemed

somewhat slow. then all of a sudden she perked up and was fine.<<
