Hi, my name is Thor and I'm a cinnamon boy. I'm really attached to my sister, Sif. We are both about 2.5 years old. I am a very hyper boy and love wrestling and playing. I like nibbling your toes but I'm a good-natured boy. I really love my sister even though she's got some troubles. Sif has issues dealing with people, and tends to lash out and bite them. And the more we get cooped up, the more she wants to act out. Since she hates being locked away, she has even become an expert cage escape artist. Because of all this, we will need to be adopted to a patient, ferret-knowledgeable home, and one without children. We've been bounced around a lot in our short lives, and we deserve somewhere to call our forever home. It sounds like a lot to take on, but I just know there is a place for us, and a family who will love us and know how to work with my sister and teach her better behaviors, and that humans are not out to hurt her. We are current on our distemper vaccinations. The adoption fee is $100 for us both.

We are staying with our foster dad, Bill in Xenia, OH. He can be reached by text message to set up a meeting. The number is 937-532-5665.
