Friendly ferret found at Edinburgh train station
Pet insurance customers might understand the heartache felt when they lose a furry friend, so may sympathise with the unknown owners of a ferret found wandering around Haymarket train station in Edinburgh.
The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) was called in to collect the creature, which was discovered after the train from London arrived on March 21st.
While the creature may have wandered to the crowded transport hub from a nearby home, a Scottish SPCA representative suggested he might have been lost while travelling north with his owner.
Jenny Scott, senior inspector with the organisation, commented: “He’s very friendly so he is obviously someone’s pet.
“We’d love to return him to his owner as I’m sure they’ll be missing him a lot.”
According to the British Ferret Club, these mammals make excellent companions, can live up to 12 years and sometimes sleep for 22 hours each day.
