  Jax found himself in trouble yesterday. I had Raine behind the gate in the upstairs bathroom. I know Jax jumps the gate but I figured I had time enough to get the gate up at the top of the stairs. I set him down in the kitchen he ran up the stairs jumped the gate. He is usually the one that torments the other ferrets, this time he got his comeuppance.
  He got over the gate, Raine jumped on him and had him down! He found out that there are ferrets that can take him out! By the time I got up here to get him out of the bathroom he had gotten away and was trying to hid from her. She may just have cured him from jumping gates, only time will tell.

  Raine, found Tic she beat the snot out of him. When I tried to break them up she bit me, I have several punctures in my right thumb, blood splattered all over while I tried to get Tic away from her. I ran my hand under cold water, wrapped my thumb with a paper towel, then took Tic to his cage. Raine would not back off when I tried to separate them.

  Tina and I got coroplast attached between Raine, Bane and Silky cage, Raine kept taking their blanket from their hammock and pulling it into her cage. She can't do that anymore.

  Raine is up here now but I am not sure she can be trusted up here while I am sleeping. This is her first night being up all night, she is now in the rotation.

  I think I found the reason Rain is so nippy, she is a Path Valley kid. PV kids are notorious for being nippy and sometimes downright mean. We have had a few over the years. Rain and I were playing this morning the best way to play with her is with covered hands she gets rough but part of that is being a kit.
  This morning when I opened her cage she was ready to get up, actually walked out onto my hands and allowed me to love on her for a bit.


Initial Contact, Owner, August 16, 2016:
  I am writing you in the hopes that you can help. My mom owns two ferrets, one of which is very sick, and I am looking to have them surrendered over. I read online what your requirements are for intakes & sadly these ferrets do not meet them. If someone does not take them though, I am afraid that the sickly one will die very soon. I apologize if this is seemingly a burden upon you, but I cannot sit back & watch her die. My sister and I have taken her to a vet who disclaimed they had never seen a ferret in real life before after charging us for various random tests. I cannot afford to take her back & get her the proper care she needs & my mother (her owner) does not think it to be a financial priority. If you could take both of them it would be greatly appreciated as I fear that if something were to happen to the other one, the outcome of it all would be no different. If you cannot take in these ferrets, please can you help me find someone who can. It is heartbreaking watching this ferret wither away. She does still drink fluids, but is lethargic & loosing weight. Please, please help in any way that you can. I am sorry I ever bought my mom these ferrets.
  I can be reached at . My name is Skye & thank you in advance for any help you can give.
