Better not leave the door open, I will be through it in a flash was Frankie’s favorite thing to do!
He was forever sneaking outside, every chance that he had. There was one time that he did escape unnoticed and ended up being missing for 7 days, we thought that we would never see him again.
When we realized that we could not find him in his special sleeping spots outside of his cage, as a family, we all went outside in different directions calling his name but he never appeared. Every day from morning to night, when we could, we would all do our part going out and continuously calling him as we walked the property but being situated on a 12 acre property, he could be anywhere, Frankie was pretty fast and quite elusive when he wanted to be! When ferrets are sleeping, they are in a very deep sleep so us calling him would go unnoticed by him, so timing was very important.
As the days continued without any sign of him, we started to resign ourselves to the fact that we may never see Frankie again. This was during the month of October and it was getting colder at night, we all were pretty upset that Frankie might actually be gone for good.
On the 7th day which was a Friday night, my son and I decided we would go to Haugen’s restaurant in Port Perry to get takeout, we love the food there and thought this might help to cheer us up a little. Just as we arrived there, I received a call on my cell from home. When I answered, my husband quickly said, he’s back, we did not even have to ask who, we knew our little guy Frankie had returned, probably very hungry by this time! We were all so relieved!
When we arrived home with dinner, we discussed the details on how Frankie reappeared. Stay tuned for the details of Frankie's safe return home in my next blog. More details to follow, stay tuned!
