This female ferret was found wandering around a backyard in town and was brought to the shelter. Ferrets are illegal in California so it is not clear what will happen to it. Nor is it clear why it lost over half the fur on its body.
It sort of has that hairless rat look about it now. It seemed pretty calm about having its picture taking, but I couldn't tell if it was shaking from being nervous about the camera or just cold from no fur. Go figure.
