Bumble escaped from her owner’s house in Lowestoft at around 7.30pm on Tuesday, May 15, before being found next door the following day at around 5pm.

Her owner, Jade Lindsay, said: “She’s a bit of an escape artist! She can climb abnormally high for a ferret.

“This was her first big escape, before it has just been her coming out to see me when I’ve been in the garden and looking at me like ‘oh hey mum! You took too long so I found a way to come to you!’

“She had fallen asleep in a neighbour’s garden so couldn’t hear us calling her. The next day she woke up and that is when we saw her playfully running around my neighbour’s garden trying to get my attention.

“We were so confused how she got out of our garden as it is totally ferret proof with no gaps under fences. She only manage to escape from my garden as she climbed our wall this time!”
