On March 20, 2009, Melmin & Roy joined the family At Zoo`s Ferret
Sanctuary. Both appeared to be around four years old.
The beautiful champagne boy, Melmin, had been mauled by a dog, several
months before, when he belonged to another owner, who was supposed to
protect him. He had lost an eye, and his shoulder, leg, and paw were
broken, as well. It healed badly, but Melmin`s attitude was very
courageous. He walked on three legs.
Melmin`s cagemate Roy had belonged to the fiance of the woman who
surrendered them both to us. Roy was one of the longest ferrets I had
ever seen!!! and a bit on the thin side. His bloodwork wasn`t good when
he had his first exam--but he has straightened out now, & is doing
Our site has sat, untouched for nearly a year now--so we weren`t able
to get Melmin & Roy up before now.
As of now, January 16, 2010, Roy has filled out beautifully, and has a
plush sable winter coat. He has developed into such a love...
Melmin is such a happy little spirit. He realizes that he has limitations
--but he`s a bit like the energizer bunny, and he does the best that he
can. As long as I am alive, no one will ever hurt him again--I promised
Our deepest thanks, gratitude, and love to April, who sponsors these two--
and who will become their mommy, if anything happens to me.
