Tinker, the ferret is over 1 year old. We read on freecycle.org that someone was looking for a suitable home for a ferret. The person had taken it from someone else, who had found the ferret too hard to care for. We were chosen, so we went to get her.
Tinker loves to play in water with her feet and jump. She play bites too hard, which we are working on, and she gives endless kisses. Chortling is an activity she likes to do. She does it so loud. We always startle when we hear it and wonder what it is at first. She is a joy and a sweetheart.
She came to us with a lot of behavior issues, but she has gotten through all of them with flying colors. Tinker is so happy. At first, we thought she might be deaf, but it turned out she is not. She has a habit of stealing and stashing shoes, especially flip flops. She has the nickname "Shoe Monster."

Tinker is a ferret We got her from freecycle.org, and also the cage. Someone had rescued her and yet they didn't have the ability to keep her.
She is always either doing one of these things: Hiding shoes, biting toes and hands for fun, doing backward pratfalls off the bed, jumping up high and landing on her back, ( I think she does this to try to get laughs) or eating or sleeping.
She sleeps in the sock drawer when she is out and in a nice bundle of fur coats or a hammock when she is in her house. She loves to make people laugh, the way she acts is so funny. I tell everyone not to laugh if she does anything inappropriate. She is a great joy to us, and we are happy we have her in our lives.
