Adorable but stinky little buggers -- the odor is really terrible.
a ferret??? i vote for dog!
you'd probably enjoy steve, who seems to think he is one. one of his many names is ferret bueller.
Ferrets are amazing and they really don't stank too much. You can't bathe them more than once a month or it stimulates oil secretion, but if you clean their bedding every week they really dont smell awful......especially since all ferres are descented these days.Also be sure to get your ferret from a reputable source there are lots of horror stories about adrenal gland failure from poorly bred farms like marshalls... which retails at big pet store chains and mall pet stores.... also be sure to feed your ferret the ferret foods NOT cat food.They are awesome companions.
@kidchamp FERRET BUELLER
i guess i shouldn't be annoyed that lauren beat me to mentioning steve nash (i was going to suggest borrowing him) as he is *her* pet.
An old roommate of mine had a ferret. It constantly wiggled out of its cage and pooped in all corners of the apartment. Which I then had to clean because she didn't take care of it. And it smelled bad. (The ferret, I mean.)
I had a friend in college whose ferret would chill in the kitchen cabinet and hand you a cup when you opened the door
@nikki STOP. IT. now I really want a ferret.
Please. Do not do it. They are SO FREAKY. They stink to high heaven. In my dorm freshman year, we kept smelling this strange smell. Come to find out, the girl in the room next to us was smuggling a ferret. One day it got loose and no one could find it. My roomate opened her closet door and the damn thing jumped out on her. It was scary. We still talk about it. There was some major poop in that girl's dorm room. Ew.
No ferret, yes parrot
trotter was his first name? that's so cool.i always thought about getting a dog and calling it mao - the chinese word for cat. kinda fun, right?
So...moral of the story is don't get a ferret in college? Dude, *I* smelled bad in college. Why wouldn't my pet rodent smell bad too? GET ONE NOW.And for the record, though I love my dog TO PIECES, she never sits in the refrigerator waiting to hand out refreshments. FAILpuppy.
HAND YOU A CUP? they can DO that?
aren't these the things that bite you in your sleep and have creepy beady eyes?
ahahahaha, what a cutie!
I find my only objection to ferrets is that they are ferret-y. Which is obvious, undeniable and also sort of hard to argue. So, no ferrets for me. If you do get one, please for the love of god don't become one of those people who walk them around in public on leashes. Even weirder than having a cat on a leash.
I've got a ferret! Well, he's my sister's, but I live with him. His name is Zissou, and he's so stupidly cute, looks like a furry, walking slinky. But yes, he's smelly, and we even took out his smelly gland (they have a smelly gland that is almost always removed). So he gets his own room and it stinks and as someone else said, he poops in the corners like a poop machine, I have no idea how he can produce so much. But he's definitely adorable. They live to be almost 10 years old, however, so make sure you want one for a decade :)
i realize you are joking here, but have you seen FERRETS: THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE? it is a mesmerizing documentary by PBS that is mainly about ferret owners, and you can catch quite a bit of it on youtube. like here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pryEBiR35vc
i think ferrets are most likely out of any type pet to eat your face off if you die home alone.
