I want another stinky weasel!
I've been trolling the shelter and breeder sites on and off for weeks. I can't believe how excited I get when I think of getting another ferret or two. AH! A baby kit of my own to raise to and train to torment Shannon by hiding his heart rate monitor and stealing all the chocolate and BBQ chips in the house... *heart swells*
There are several ferret breeders in Ohio, and we're going to be within 100 miles of at least 3 them on my birthday when we go to visit Mu and Mere.... I may have to make a quick detour on the way when Shannon's not looking....
I realize ferretses are not everyone's cup or tea, or, rather, mason jar lid of water.
Indeed, I have only met a handful of people who share my total adoration of these sneaky, stinky, mischievous little creatures, but, man, I do love 'em!
And as long as we live next door to The Screaming Banshee, aka, BC (Birth Control,) there's no chance of us having kids, so quiet pets it is. Holy God, for something so tiny and cute, that kid has the LOUDEST, most developed sustainable shriek I've ever heard. You'd think she was being flayed alive for hours every. Single. Day. Jamie Lee Curtis hears her and goes, "....Damn! I'm glad I wasn't up against you for the role of Laurie in Halloween - I'd have never been discovered!"
