So long story short, a ferret i was only supposed to foster for a few days turned out to be in dire condition and the person who was supposed to claim her backed out upon finding out about her emerging health issues, so i find myself in possession of an adorable but ill ferret named Rosie. Instead of passing her off to another possibly careless owner I've decided to care for her myself. I got her into a vet and have figured out her medical issues (insulinomia, a type of diabetes) but it'll be a bit before i can save up enough to get her the meds she needs.
I've created a small wishlist of supplies that will help her and me here:
Or if you prefer to help with her medicine directly we have an account set up just for that
Clarification: I was sick through the week of 6/20, and isolated at home. My symptoms are nearly gone, but that doesn't change the fact that, on Sunday, when I tested again, it was positive.
