Hi there- my name is Lightning, and this is my brother, Snow. We are both 4 years old, so we aren't kits anymore but we still have plenty of love and laughter to give to a new family. I am an albino girl and my brother is a dark-eyed white so it can be hard to tell us apart in our photos, but you will be able to tell us apart in person for sure; while my brother has a full coat, I have hair loss on my backside. This is because I have adrenal disease, a fairly common disorder in older ferrets.I just got a melatonin implant to help control the symptoms- but because this is a life-long disorder, I am considered a special needs ferret. Despite my baldy bum, you would never know I'm different, because I'm still a wild and playful girl! My brother is more of a cuddler. We are full of fun and deserve a loving home to live out our golden years. We are current on our distemper vaccinations. Since we are older ferrets, the adoption fee is only $50 for the 2 of us.
