Napoleon and Josephine need a ferret-friendly home

Tucked in a back office at PAWS is an airy, roomy cage; home to two of the sweetest animals at PAWS. Napoleon and Josephine are two abandoned sable ferrets living and playing at PAWS. And they need a home.

"Someone left them in a box at the Lynnwood Park and Ride with a 'free' sign," says Vicki Nelson, who runs PAWS Rescue Program for domesticated animals that are not dogs, cats, or birds.

Vicki has been caring for them in her office for several months now while she tries to line up an appropriate rescue family. Vicki has been able to find homes for turtles, snakes, sugar gliders, and other exotic animals that have come into PAWS, but so far she has had no luck placing Napoleon and Josephine.

"The are very sweet and inquisitive," says Vicki. "People fall in love with them after they meet them."

Napoleon and Josephine both have adrenal tumors which require monthly hormone shots to control.

People interested in being Napoleon and Josephine's rescue home are encouraged to contact Vicki Nelson at (425) 787- 2500, ext. 231. Applicants must have prior experience with ferrets.
