Subject: [Ferret-Health-list] drinking urine?

Mayhaps I shoudl give some more background...
This is the first time I have ever seen MaCleane drink his own
pee. He is only seven months old. No other changes, health
or behavior have been noticed. I got him at a pet supermarket
and he is a marshall farm baby.
He had peed on the floor of the cage and was licking it up
when I walked by the cage this evening.

This evening, I found MaCleane happily lapping ay a puddle
of his own urine in his cage. I know someone had posted
about this before but it has been awahile. Can anyone please
advise me on what this may indicate or why he is doing this?
