I almost bought a ferret
I went to a pet store for dog food (Petco ) ... and one of the sales people there was walking around with a ferret wrapped on his neck. I'm such a sucker for animals ..... I thought "Charlie" looked so sweet . He was an albino ferret .
I know nothing about them. My friend's daughter had 6 of them - their cages took up the whole basement. She said when they were let out -- they played like kittens and were very smart. ( Then she asked me if I wanted to buy them ........hhhmmmm...) um ..... I don't think so .
I asked to hold Charlie ..... he just squirmed the whole time - never really looked at me - he was eyeing up the store to see where he could go. I knoww they LOVE to explore to the point of being a terror .
Are they good pets ? Does anyone have one ? I'd love to hear about their personalities and how much they interact with humans. Something tells me - they weren't meant to be pets.
