Earlier this week late on Tuesday evening a very kind gentleman spotted this little fella at the side of the road in the St Saviours area.

Andrea as staff have named him at only just over a month isn't even old enough to be away from his mother and is needing bottle feeding by Shelter staff at the GSPCA.

Andrea arrived late in the evening and GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne accepted the young ferret who was very cold, weak and quiet.

A pen was quickly set up with additional heating and Andrea thankfully pulled through the first night well.

Although he is starting to eat solids he has required bottle feeding which the staff have been giving which you can see in the video clips below.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'Andrea when he was brought in was very cold and could hardly move.'

'If the gentleman who found him hadn't rescued him and brought him in to the GSPCA he would certainly have perished over night as he was so weak.'

'Andrea is a real star and has stolen the hearts of the team at the Shelter.'

'He is very sweet and eating well and if the owner doesn't come forward then he will be up for adoption with the other ferrets we currently have when he is old enough.'

If you think that Andrea may belong to you please call the Shelter on 01481 257261 or pop into the Shelter with a picture of the little guy or some proof of ownership ideally between 9am to 5pm any day except Sunday.
