We have moved the ferret cage in the living room. Well Boo (who tec. is a panda but is almost totally white with a half black tail and occasional black spots on her back when she changes coats) was laying on the bottem of the cage sleeoing with her eyes open. I know I should be used to her doing this by now, but it still freaks me out. I called at her to wake her up, she didnt move. I freak and get her out of the cage, she is breathing fine and warm, but still limp. I start rubbing kind ruff on her back to stimulate if its breathing or any thing well Boo is a heavy sleeper, she wakes up and looks at me like WHAT!. We noticed that she had a couple fleas so it was bath time (I HATE fleas). I walked into the kitchen with her right as Logan turned on the garbage disposal and she never turned her head. So we tested Logan stood behind her and yelled her name, I clapped and snaped my finguers behind her, nothing. So the reason she didnt react in the cage, she has lost her hearing. My poor little girl. We have worried about this happining since we got her. She is just over a year. But atleast it exspains why her and Andre' suddenly started getting into tiffs. She didnt know he was behind her and it scared her.
