Description
Slinky, lightening fast, mischievous, and smarter than many people you know, ferrets, like their otter cousins, are the merry pranksters of the animal world. Ferrets are also inveterate thieves who'll steal just about anything that isn't nailed down and spirit it off to their hidey-holes. But, as most ferret owners will tell you, the thing those fuzzy little balls of energy are best at stealing is your heart. Hmm. cunning, mischievous, light-fingered - sounds like a recipe for disaster in a pet. And the truth is, coexisting with a ferret can be a challenge - one you'd better be certain you're up for, before you commit to bringing a ferret into your home.
