An animal charity has launched a search for the owners of two ferrets who were discovered on the loose in Dundee nearly a week apart.
Steve and Merlin, both male ferrets, were found in the area of Millburn Gardens, Trottick.
They are now in the care of the Scottish SPCA centre at Petterden following their adventure.
It is not known whether or not they escaped from the same home.
The ferrets are both similar in colour – with white fur on their heads and black fur on their bodies.
Steve was found on Millburn Gardens on January 2 when a dog walker stumbled across him close to Trottick Ponds.
A Scottish SPCA officer managed to catch the furry creature.
Merlin was retrieved on Tuesday night and also taken into the charity’s care.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish SPCA said: “We can confirm two ferrets were discovered in the Millburn Gardens area. Steve was found on January 2 before Merlin was found on Tuesday.
“Both were very friendly and are in good condition.”
She said the charity was trying to trace the animals’ owners and confirmed the pair were recovering well.
The spokeswoman added that staff at the shelter were going to try to put the animals together, as they were of a similar size.
Facebook page Missing Pets, Dundee and Angus confirmed it had also been notified of ferrets being found.
The site also launched an appeal to try to track down the owners.
One poster on Facebook said it was “quite concerning” to hear that the animals had been on the loose.
Anyone who can help find the owners of the ferrets and get them back home, is asked to contact the Scottish SPCA on 0300 099 9999.
