Subject: Re: Change in behavior-for those who responded

I wanted to thank all of those who took the time to respond. I really
apprieciate it!

Everything said is logical and worth checking out. Hub and I did come
up with another thing to be checked out as well. We went and pulled
her out to let her run around a bit this morning, to see how she
behaved out of the cage. She was very active, but we noticed a VERY
slight limp to her walk...that is when we both remembered a VERY loud
thump the other night while downstairs [coming from the ferret room].
We thought nothing of it, maybe a full water bottle fell. Well the
next day, there was no water bottle to be found nor anything else out
of place. I am so dence, it didn't even phase me that a ferret could
of fell off the top ramp of their cage [the cages are semi tall-all
though it's pretty protected, it is possible to fall if the ferret
was wild enough].

All though, this is all speculation right now, we now feel we at
least have something to tell the vet [as well as getting some large
hammocks to break a fall just in case this is what happened]. As
well, as having all the other suggestions checked out-I want to ask
the vet if a x-ray would reveal any injuries she could have from a
*possible fall.

Anyhow, thank you again EVERYONE who so kindly responded and for
those who emailed me privatly-thank you too! I feel I have a lot more
to go on now.

Thank you and Please Take Care,
