Hi! My name is Skippy.

I am a Ferret from Grand Forks.

4 years old

Female

skipper, skip skip, skippums, skipper doodle



in my cage, in the living room, moms bed, petco, the park, in my back yard, my sleep sack.

She always gives me lots of love. When I am sick she gets up every two hours to feed me special food and gives me my medicine. She takes me for play dates and spoils me roten.

Playing with my sister, a ferret named snowball, and the family dogs.

I love to play with feet, chase the dogs and play in plastic bags.

Myself, there is no bigger celebrity.

SNEEZING!

  Hi Skippy sweet girl
Ok, my name. It is an Indian name. My Dad likes this old show from the 60's called Daniel Boone, and Daniel's best friend was a Cherokee Indian/English, educated at Oxford come back to America as an Indian dude. He was cool, so Dad named me Mingo, cause he liked the name and thought it would be good for a ferret like me. Only problem is, it sounds like Bingo, but I'm not a dog or a game, but I'd gladly steal either. Ha Ha. Left you a vote my beauty! MINGO

I am so happy to hear how your hair is growing back that is so great! I'm glad your Mom got to see that when she got back from her vacation. I bet you missed her! She was wondering if your hair would grow back, and it did! I am happy you are getting well. You had a very important surgery and it's good that you are looking at it from the past now. I told Snowball about the party Fri, come if you can, OK? take care and I will talk tomorrow! Your good bud, MINGO

  Hi Skippy
I am very pleased that you visited me and more pleased that you are playing and feeling better! Your Mom must be so happy. I'm glad she has Omi to watch you and Snow while she is on her trip. A brother? sounds like that should be interesting. He can stay in Snowball's house right? Did your hair grow back on your belly yet? You were very brave and got through all the medical stuff really well, you should be proud. Know what? It's OK that if you want to sleep alot right now, cause it's good for you still. I will miss ya, and I'll drop by everyday to vote for ya. Stay sweet and don't share your house with anyone! Your fuzzy friend, Mingo

I was just about to write you and you left me a blog. I am so happy to hear that you like the new linens, and hopefully you won't be sneezing anymore really soon! yeah My Mom put up some really embarrasing pictures. Why do those HOOMANS like to take pictures of us when we are sleeping? Any how My Mom is also happy you might be somewhat better. I know I like fleece and flannel, and lingere that is in one of my Mom's drawers. I have the one drawer that my Mom took the picture in and then there's another with silky stuff, and I found my Mom's bra makes a nice pillow. Ha Ha now I embarrassed her! Take care and we will talk later! your Pal, Mingo

  Hey Skippy!
No more sneezing! Ya Hear, or I'll come to Grand Forks and steal your favorite toy!!!! Hey, Have you tried the Marshall litter, it's like Yesterday's news for cats, or you could use that too, but it's real good. It doesn't smell, and it's soft but good. Your Mom works really hard, and then she comes home and works really hard for you and Snow, so try real hard to get well cause there's so much yet to do! I hope you like the new soft bedding your Mom worked hard to get for ya. Hey, this mmorning is so nice here, and Mom took me out and I dug a little in her flowers, and then I got hot, and ran to the screen door and tried to open it myself! then Mom took the leash off and I dooked alot cause I like the bell on it and Mom and I played catch the bell! Whew Saturdays are good cause my Mom & Dad are usually home in the Mornings with me. I started off the Morining early waking my MOM at 2:30, so she got up and fixed me some soup (that's what I wanted, I'm pretty spoiled) and then I went back to sleep until around 8 and then got yelled at for diggin at the underside of the bed, I've got a diggin monkey on my back. So after going to my "house" for about an hour, Dad let me out and then Mom played with me. I'm going to go to My Dresser now to take some ZZZZs, cause I'm worn out now. Feel better, Please? Talk Later! YO HO MINGO

That's what Dad said when he stuck his head in our penthouse yesterday. He's usually good at keeping it spic n' span but we decided that the potty pan was too messy & found a couple new corners. Dad was not pleased. He'll probably play the game again of placing food in those corners to discourage us! We'll see. And when the pan's real fresh, Pretzel sometimes thinks it's a new digging spot or comfy bedding. It's fun to watch Dad's reactions. We did make it out yesterday in the 'hood which was quite fun until the sprinklers came on & Dad took us home. What's a little water? Yes, Peanut did manage to crawl up Dad's pant leg again until he got past his sock which was not well tolerated. We heard that Dad's sis will be in town soon so that means we're gonna get that full "salon treatment" & our furniture washed. Don't know why, we LIKE the smell. The bath & swimming sure is fun but drying off is another story. And the "ear & nail thing", eww! Hope you're having a great week. Dook! Thanks for visiting us & for your votes. Always appreciated. Happy adventures... Your buds, ~ P & P

  Just dropping by to say hi!
We just wanted to drop by and say hi. How have things been going? Life is good here. Mommy's been busy with work, she had to go out of town this week so she hasn't let us play too much on here. She did get us a new cage in the mail though. Mommy thinks that we need a bigger cage now that there are two of us here. From the picture this cage looks cool it got four layers, tubes, a slide and a new hammy. Mommy said she's not sure though if it's what she wants, she is so particular. Now she may want to just buy the extension for the cage we already have, who knows? Honestly, we'd rather be out of the cage anyways running and playing through the house. Freedom is so much fun! We haven't been able to dig holes in the yard lately though because it just keeps raining here. Daddy's planning another photo shoot so we should have new pictures up soon. Mommy told him that Pumpkin is growing so fast that we need to do photo sessions very often, just like human babies. Stop by and visit us soon, we look forward to hearing from you! We left you a vote with our note!

My Mom thought that it must have been adrenal from the looks of the shavin' they did! Now, it took Sneeki's hair on her tail about 4 months to come back, and even though it came back, it didn't ever get super fluffy, but we're all different. My Mom says make sure that she watches you really close and loves you a bunch, cause you are special. I think it's nice that your Mom loves you so much. Yeah, the pet stores have us on the same bedding that the hamsters get, but when you get home, we ferrets like soft things. We use a litter box, so we don't need the cedar bedding stuff, and Make sure your Mom doesn't mind washing, cause If you do go outside your box, then the towels and soft stuff needs it. That's why they use that cedar bedding at the pet stores, but we ferrets are special.

Talk Later to you, your buddy Mingo

  Hi Skippy!
Thanks for your visit! What kind of surgery did you have? Listen, my Mom said to tell ya, don't be surprised that when the hair starts to grow back, your tummy may look like it's kinda a darkish blue color. If you were white, it would be orange. My Mom said that when my sister Sneeki had her adrenal and then her insulinoma surgeries, she had the blue belly. The blue is the color the skin looks like when the dark hair is growing back under the skin. The bluer it is, the closer you are to getting your hair! Tell your Mom not to be too sad! The only bedding my Mom uses is lots of towels and flannel fabric, so everything is soft. I,m pretty tough tho. I hope you feel better soon, cause your Mom loves you so!

Stay Sweet! Mingo, here's a vote

Thanks for visiting us, your comment & vote. (Don't forget my sib Pretzel once in a while.) Actually, our weird humans did use our main pics in a winter holiday card last year. You should have seen our Dad struggle on his own to get that perfect pic of us dressed up balanced in one hand & camera in the other. We were on the balcony and neighbors stopped, stared, pointed at us and laughed. It was pretty humiliating. We figured it was worth putting up with it briefly since we're so loved & spoiled. What kind of embarrassing costumes did your humans pick out for you? We see that you have a "kitty-cube" too! We love ours. Dad brings it with us when we go to the park. Here's a vote for ya, cutie. Happy adventures to you... ~ P & P

  Hi Skippy!
Thanks very much for the visit and vote yesterday, I have a whole bunch of critters to thank! When my Mommy brought the little sis home, I wouldn't let her stay in my cage either! It took almost 2 week of playing together before I let her move in. Maybe with some time you might change your mind? Here's a vote for ya!

  Hello Skippy, Snowball & Family!
DOOK! Hope you're feeling better. Hi! My name is PEANUT and I want to introduce myself and my roomie PRETZEL to you. We discovered this meeting place just a few weeks ago when we pounced onto our Dad's keyboard while he was asleep. We're having fun here and would love to meet other critters of all species. We come from a loving family that has had a variety of creatures both large and small but we are the first 2 ferrets in this home. Check out our descriptive profiles and pics and if you feel that we are cute and loveable enough, perhaps you could give us a vote. Over time, we will be adding new photos and updating our blog to share our lives with you. We'll be back here at least on a weekly basis while Dad's asleep. We look forward to meeting you and having you visit us! Thanks. {{{HUGz}}} Peanut & Pretzel (& Ken)

  Hi Skippy
I hope you are getting stronger everyday. My sister Sneeki,(she's and angel now) who looks like you by the way had her some adrenal surgery and she did fine for two years, she was very playful, pretty and sweet. The best thing you can do is make sure you let your Mom take good care of you so you and your sister can be together for a long time, and continue to give tons of grief to those dogs. Bite their ankles, my Collie used to love it (yeah right ;)) DOOK DOOK.

I came from Petco, my Mom said I was the only one awake, and I was looking right at her. I like to socialize, so it got me a good home! Now that I have trained my Hoomans, we are happy together.

  my health struggles
Just recently I was diagnosed with Adrenal Gland Disease and it was slowing down my heartbeat. My mom and Omi got me the surgery to make me better but instead I took a turn for the worst afterwards. As it turns out after the surgery my body needed steroid shots. I wasn't eating so my mom had to get up every two hours and feed me this food mix my doctor calls "beefcake". I recieved many shots over a week but it turns out that wasn't my only health problem. I was sneezing a lot and not getting a whole lot better. My doctor said that she thought I had aspirated during surgery. I was getting shots of medicine in my legs until they started making my legs so sore that I couldn't walk. Now my mom has to give them to me twice a day in my mouth, she mixes it with the beefcake which is good but doesn't really help the taste of the baytrol very much. I still have a few more days of medicine before my next checkup, but I'm putting up a good fight, mom calls me her tough little girl.

My mom got me from our local Petco as a baby and brought me into a home with more love than i ever dreamed of having. I have enjoyed three almost four years of happiness and love. My Omi (german for grandma, that's right i speak two languages) was affraid of ferrets at first but I changed her mind on that.
