Hey guys. 

I’m new to Riotact but I really need your help.

8 days ago a ferret named Jules went missing from Sid Barnes Cres in Gordon (right near the shops).

The chances of finding her alive are really really slim, I know that – but please if you see her, see anything that might help her be located please contact the Ferret Society of Canberra on 0428 7466 20 Her name is Jules.

She is a lovely sable (brown) ferret girl. She is very very small (approx 600g) and of lovely nature. She has a microchip.

We have contacted everyone we can possibly think of. You guys are my last hope. Please help!

Not knowing is just so terribly difficult!

Thanks all


UPDATED: prhhccd has commented that Jules has been found:

    Hey guys, you’re never going to believe this: Jules was found in Holder on Monday! She’s alive and well, only a bit shaken. Thank you all so much for your support and well wishes. We really appreciate it!
    Leanne (the owner) wanted me to post this:
    When you get a chance would you mind posting a thank you on RiotACT for me
    please for all the good wishes, sensible questions and overall care for
    Jussy’s safe return that people posted.

    So thank you all, we were so overwhelmed that Jules got back ok. Really unexpected after two weeks!

    Please remember that if you see a ferret walking the streets, it is someone’s pet (they cannot survive in the wild here for long), please pick it up and call the Ferret Society of Canberra. Thanks all!

I always knew all the ferrets resided in Holder..

I am so grateful to him (that’s all I know, it was a guy). May good karma pursue him whereever he goes.

Well, good on the folk who found her for pursuing it and finding the owner. Good karma to them, I think.

she’s getting a lot of those on Sunday! Trust me!

Granny Granny 1:49 pm 26 Nov 08

That is kind of unbearable, prhhcd. Just hold her close and give her a big, long hug for me.

Granny, interestingly enough, Jules is the biological sister to one of the ferrets tortured to death where the sentencing has recently been. Cooch looked exactly like her, just a little bigger. I know both animals well, and yes, it is very very real for me and it has made me more fearful and has certainly attacked my sense of security in terms of protecting my little guys.

I think someone picked her up in the Gordon area and took her to holder, sadly they did not check for a chip, this could have saved a lot of anguish. I don’t know the whole story yet. I will find out on the weekend when I meet up with the owner.

Granny Granny 1:35 pm 26 Nov 08

You know the more I look at that sweet little face, the more I can’t bear to think of anybody hurting a little animal like her. It just makes it more real somehow.

Prhhcd, do we know if Jules travelled all the way from Gordon to Holdern, or was it just someone from Holder who found the Ferret?

prhhcd prhhcd 1:23 pm 26 Nov 08

she ate lots when she got home! And then snuggled with her brothter and sister.

ant ant 1:21 pm 26 Nov 08

That’s really good news, it’s always amazing when a lost animal is found and returned to its people. What are the chances? I figure she’s licking her chops becuase she’s either just eaten something nice, or is planning to!

Oh, Ari!

Nah, but for some reason the thread a few months ago about the best massage in Canberra sprung to mind 😉

Did you get out on the wrong side of bed, Ari?

Granny Granny 1:04 pm 26 Nov 08

Thanks, prhhcd.

That’s fantastic! I will do that.

Granny, The FSOC is genrally happy to participate in these sorts of programs. We hold regular events for kids at the ACT public Libraries (next one at Kippax on Jan 27). Contact the FSOC if your daughter’s school is interested.

Granny Granny 12:57 pm 26 Nov 08

Thanks for the link, prhhcd.

They look like they would make marvellous ‘pets as therapy’. We used to have people bring in various animals to my daughter’s special school … you know, dogs, rabbits, lizards, birds … for the children to meet.

Some of them were really interested in the animals, and others just couldn’t be ‘reached’.
