Ferret in Greensboro, NC***Needs help****
« on: November 03, 2009, 09:08:24 AM »
I don't know if this is the right place to put this or not so sorry if it isn't. I was browsing my local area CL and came across this ad:

http://greensboro.craigslist.org/pet/1449261896.html

I don't know if anyone on here can help this poor guy or not but thought I would give it a shot. He is in a small bird cage!! This is NOT my ferret and I do not own any ferrets but I do know they are way to big and active to be kept like this. I just thought I would post it here hoping someone could help this guy.

Any questions about the ferret please respond to the CL ad...I am in no way affiliated with this person...I just came across the ad and thought he needed help.

Oh God. I'm in Greensboro, but I can't have any pets! It kills me! If I could I'd take him in a heartbeat!

I think his cage is sitting on top of a rabbit or guinea pig cage...the kind that is on rollers. I emailed them and from her reply she sounds desperate to get rid of him. She has emailed me back 2x's asking me if I want him.

I just don't know anything about ferrets and I don't have a cage for him either. The only thing I could do for him is house him in a huge dog crate for now. I have one that is for an adult Great Dane that's just sitting in my den collecting dust. I wonder if he could stay in that for a while or at least until I could find someone that would want him. I'm not really a ferret person but I hate to see him like that.

Poor boy.

Jen I dont see why he couldnt use that dog crate, put a bunch of hammocks and stuff in there and it would be a mansion compared to what he is in, and if you decide you really like him Ferret rescue here will sell you a super pet ferret cage (the purple one with tubes) for a donation!

I emailed her to see if she would meet me somewhere...she hasn't replied. I'll drive all the way if necessary but I wish she would meet me in the middle.

I need a ferret like I need a hole in the head! But I really hate to see him living in a bird cage...what is wrong with people??

If someone on here wanted him I don't mind holding him for someone *hint*hint*  :cheeky:

She emailed me back and said she had someone coming to pick him up. Hopefully the do and hopefully he will be going to a better situation.

I told her if they do not pick him up let me know and I will take him.
