Friendly ferrets are looking for their forever home. Can you help?
The RSPCA in Martlesham has more than 10 of the furry little characters, and is looking for owners who can give them the love and attention they need. Ferrets have become popular family pets over recent years because of their fun and playful nature.
Two male ferrets, Ian and Gary, came into the care of the RSPCA after being abandoned. This pair love running around and getting into mischief.
The RSPCA says: "They are super lively boys who are looking for an experienced home with no young children, as they can be very over the top at times."
Poppy and Belle came to the centre because their owners could no longer keep them, and are looking for a home that has the time to continue socialising them as they can still be a little shy around people. They are a devoted pair, so need a home together.
Another friendly ferret, Ruby, was found as a stray. She is an older girl who loves relaxing in her cosy bed and having company from humans. The RSPCA is looking for a home where she could be with another older or calmer ferret.
Because ferrets are sociable animals, they always make sure they have at least two living together, but larger groups will often also live together happily.
The RSPCA also has a number of other ferrets. For full details, phone the centre on 0300 999 7321 or visit the website.
