Thanks a lot for your thoughts. I appreciate your time. I don't know why he's
paranoid. He's always been happy, plays with us, we've had him for about 6
months now and he was very playful, ***, gets into everything, suddenly the
last a few days, he's a different person, or ferret. Why would something like
this happen to him, I am sure there's no abuse because we handle him with love
and care every minute, they're the only thing I have to care about. He gets a
long with Sheeba, my other ferret, real well, but lately he doesn't seem to
play with her, in fact he tries to keep her away from him when she wants to
play, it breaks my heart to see them like that. I try to calm him down, try to
play with him but all he does is ignore me and go to hide. Sometime, when we
used to go out and he's home, as soon as he hears the door he comes running to
me wanting to be hugged and picked up. Now, he runs to hide! It's worrying me
I do appreciate your thoughts, thank you so much. If you have any other
thoughts please let me know.
Muna, Caesar and Sheeba
