A wriggly little creature is on the look out for a new home after finding itself in a local rehoming centre.
Marlene the ferret is the Scottish SPCA’s Pet of the Week and hopes for new owners after her previous carer couldn’t look after her any longer.
She is described as “an absolutely adorable little girl” who loves human attention.
A spokeswoman for the SSPCA said: “While a lot of ferrets can be a bit nippy, Marlene hasn’t displayed any signs of this yet and is happy to be handled.
“We think that this girl would be an ideal starter ferret as she is so easy going and chilled out.
“She is also neutered so could potentially go to a new home with another ferret companion.
“If you can give Marlene the home she deserves then please contact our centre in Dundee on 03000 999 999.”
