Flood of ferrets looking for homes
A 10-week-old female ferret found in Kelty has become the latest of the furry animals flooding the Scottish SCPCA's rescue centres.
The animal welfare charity currently cares for 35 ferrets and staff are desperate to find them permanent homes. Baby Petal was the latest to be added to the bunch after being found weak and hungry by a member of the public in Kelty.
Scottish SPCA Superintendent Sharon Comrie said, "A ferret might not be the first animal you'd think of when considering a new pet, but in our experience they are fantastic little creatures who can bring a great deal of enjoyment to their owners.
"Some people think ferrets are wild animals but they're not. They're domesticated pets that cannot survive outdoors on their own."
Potential owners should call the charity's helpline on 03000 999999.
