??? MY feret has been acting strange lately and shaking. a couple of days ago i felt she wasn't herself as when i looked in her cage she seemed really relaxed and still, as she would usually come straight to the the cage door to greet me in a way. I would hold her and i can feel her whole body shaking, but when my boyfriend was holding her after i raised the point of this, he said that she stopped shaking. Now every time i i go to see her, she still shaking over the past couple of days and some times very distant. But once she's out of her cage and had a quick walk round the house she's back to her normal self. I don't whether there's something wrong with her or not. My boyfriend thinks it just a routine change as for the last 2 weeks my work pattern has changed. This is our normal routine: mornings she gets a run round of the house from around 8 till 10.30ish then out again at about 4ish till 11ish. Then I had to run a chinese resturant for 2 weeks and having long hours and my boyfriends not being at home that much during those 2 weeks my ferrets only had about an hour or 2 during the evening when i get home. last night she also got quite hyper when she was out all day . is this normal??? i'm a bit worried but my boyfriend thinks there's nothing wrong with her. Any suggestions would be most grateful. Many thanks to anyone who tries to help.
