Description: 
This is Swiper Dark-Eyed-White SoupSlurper (you can't get much more specifically descriptive than that for a name that describes the fur-person! :) He may be a 6 year old, but since he's been at this Sanctuary, he's given himself a new lease on living (it up) with the help of a little kindly human attention and three bowls of our home-made Ferrets' Get-Well Soup every day. You'd never know him, nowadays, from the painfully thin, scared-slow ferret who was first turned in. He's put on some healthy weight, showing an active interest in ferreting things out and swiping toy-stashes of other ferrets', and is much more alert and active. Now that he's recovered from his original malnourishment and dehydration, we think he's got several good years of living to enjoy, not the few weeks his former owner was afraid of. (the third picture, I had just awakened a still-sleepy Swiper for a great Xmas photo next to a hand-crocheted plastic ball i was working on.) This fellow doesn't care for the company of most other ferrets, though, so he would be adopted as a special-needs (you have just Got to let Swiper have his home-made warmed-up soup three times a day! ) older 'single' ferret. His adoption fee is $75.00
