Subject: RE: [Ferret-Health-list] Intro

She is 5 y/o not very big, I think she is 2 lbs. (Sorry I am at work
and can't remember anything). I am wondering if there is something I
should be doing for her. I have slowly changed her food, she now gets
iams and totally ferret. She still has all of her cage mates. I know
that the other mom and her were real close but I finally have her
coming to me for attention. She gets plenty of time out. . Anybody
have any suggestions?
Lydia and the crew

I also have one that has off and on poop problems, which I blame on stress.
He has a hearing problem, and not well liked by the rest of the crew. He
also has very sharp teeth, and nips us when playing. He doesn't try to hurt
us, it just does. I use a towel, etc. when playing with him. The poops
usually show up in the cage litter box, and I know he gets chased out of his
chosen sleep bag when someone else wants it or gets to it first. He doesn't
hear certain tones, and one of those seems to be the others cry when they
have had enough of his play, so they just avoid him when they are all out
for play.

So if anyone has any good suggestions on a wide variety of colored poop,
please post to the list.
