Sukie -

Go to your local pharmacy and get a couple of the flavors - they cost
about $3.50 at our local CVS - there are about thirty or so now. You
get about 8 drops per bottle - they are really potent. I don't know
what Warp likes, but you can put a drop of each on a plate and see
which one he goes for.

We've had to do this with Connor a couple of times - the ferrets are
less fussy.
