6 Ferret Vet Visit

So - the little ferrets had their annual check up today.  I have to say that a 6 ferret vet visit is way easier than a 4 kitty vet visit for sure.  The babies were very well behaved - they all hung out together in Winston's carrier and were great in the car.

Once we got there they piled out - kind of like a cute ferret clown car.  They all hopped out to explore.  Madison went first, then Theo, Violet, Harlow, Tabitha and last but not least Kai.  Weights were all stable or up just a smidge.  No signs of ear mites, teeth, eyes and ears looked great - all in all quite healthy little babies.

Harlow, Violet and Madison




The vet is EXHAUSTING - so - that's Harlow on the left, Tabitha laying in the opposite direction, Violet, Theo at the bottom of the pile you can only see his head and tail, and Madison.  The one face that is missing is Kai - his body is at the top next to Harlow.  They voluntarily got in the carrier and went to sleep after their examinations.
