My oldest son is trying to talk me into letting him get a ferret. Have you experienced these funny creatures? Our local pet store has them...and I'm not overly impressed with the look and smell of their waste! I don't think I could take it...'cause ya know - I'd be the one cleaning up after them. I think he's just gonna have to wait until he's out on his own. (Which won't be long...sniff, sniff) There is something about ferrets that I didn't know: they go into a dead sleep. Watch and observe...and have a great Tuesday!!
