Do ferrets get moody?
No, it’s not a trick question I seriously wonder if they do!
My Mojo has totally broken the mould I had for albino ferrets. I always considered them to be wonderfully smoochy, loving little things, then along came Mojo!
I’ve never known a ferret to be such a Jekyll and Hyde She’ll cover my face with kisses some days and play with me like I’m her best buddy. Then, in a matter of moments, she’ll change. If I pick her up to get her to kiss me again, she’ll turn her face away and that’ll be that. No more kisses from the little madam.
Other times we’ve had fun playing then I come to the sitting room and flop in my chair to watch TV or use the laptop, she’ll come to me, jump up and sink her teeth into my inner elbow then run away.
What’s with the attitude, I wonder?
Like I tell people, “The more I know ferrets, the more I know I don’t know!”
Sounds like a statement Donald Rumsfeld would make, doesn’t it, but boy, does it apply to Mojo
However, back to my albino girl.
I wrote about my concern that she might have adrenal disease last month. After noticing that hair was missing from the underside of her tail, I then noticed that she was losing hair on her belly …
It reminded me of how Seamus’ tail looked last year and, as the ultrasound and biopsy didn’t find anything to worry about for him, I decided to not take Mojo to my vet and see how she went.
She still has about an inch of no hair on the underside of her tail but I’m relieved to see that the fur on her stomach has grown back, so it can’t be anything connected to her adrenal glands.
I guess it could be seasonal and – who knows – maybe she’s moody because she’s annoyed about what her hair looks like LOL!
