Here's our little Ferris peeking out of his little colorful ferret bed. He is just the cutest thing! He wakes up and looks around when you call his name. I thought I'd post some pictures of him here because someone on my Support4Homeschool yahoo group asked for suggestions of small pets. I recommended a ferret - he's the only "small" pet we have.
The upside of ferrets:
- they aren't demanding
- they don't bark
- they don't eat a lot
- they are pretty low maintenance
- they are funny and affectionate
The downside of ferrets:
- they smell kind of musky
- they tend to take small items and hide them under sofas and beds - Ferris likes to steal razors from the side of the tub and he loves any crackly paper or bags - those are hidden under the sofas
- you do have to clean the cage (well, *I* don't - that's a Stevie-boy job!)
Here's a picture of Ferris and Brooke's cat, Libby. Libby has always loved Ferris and will climb into his cage. They love to play together.
