pat asked nick and i to ferret-sit “pookey” while he was gone for a week. he gave us a couple of books to read and i learned some interesting things. they are predatory and were originally used for hunting rodents. Queen Victoria gave away albino ferrets as gifts. (she kept them royally pampered) a city in ohio was nicknamed “ferretville” because around 40,000 ferrets per year were raised and shipped out.
they get so lonely so easily. and they need to be treated as a 2-yr-old child. and they are not as easy to take care of as, say, a dog or cat. there is a lot of work in taking in a ferret as a pet.
