An Outing with My Pet - Ferret Hilton a.k.a. Kaos

I am just back from the night market, with a couple of friends and my ferret. We left Kaos alone in the car as I bought 1.5 kg of gizzard (my fav part of the chicken after the heart) and my friends got some tasty food and drinks for our supper.

We took the foodstuf to a nearby recreational area, spread the food on a bench and took my ferret out from the car for him to roam (on a leash). And as his previous owner told me a long long time ago, a ferret is a chick / kid magnet. Boy, he was right.

Twenty one young boys and six girls touched my ferret tonight. Several more just watched from afar, either too scared or their parents wouldn't allow them to come nearer. And people do ask what animal was it. All of them never heard of a ferret, or its closest domestic cousin, the civet. I predicted that there are only four ferrets in this state. You see, ferrets are VERY costly here. Though they are exteremely cute and lovable, ferrets are not for beginners.

They need a lot of attention. Eat high quality cat food (expensive). Only a very huge cage is suitable. Two or three hours of playtime daily. Etc. A ferret is not a cat or a small dog. Our local vet admitted that he never held one before (so I NEED to pray my Kaos is always healthy).

Cons aside... this little mammal is the BEST pet I ever invested in. He's funny and cuddly, very active and curious. As I talked to my friends, Kaos never tire of sniffing around, padding towards children who were so fascinated with him. He might feel like Paris Hilton, amongst the paparazzi. Ha ha ha ha ha.

This is a very joyful evening for me and Kaos. The only thing that marred my happy feeling was when my friends telling me about a woman and her boyfriend who were walking behind me while I was playing with my ferret. She was the only person among many who made a disgusted face, complete with the "Eeeewww! Eeeewww!" soundtrack. My friends knew if I saw her, I'd spit fire and poison to the ignorant bitch and her poor excuse of a lover, so they kept quiet as the couple walked past behind me. They were right, I'd chase the stupid duo around town if I have to.

Anyway, here's a pic of me and Kaos before we return back. It's good to gloat once in a while, non?

What a sweet boy. I've never seen one in person, but I've known lots of people in the states who've had them for pets. I've heard their stinky?

Shadowthorne said...

SLC; They are not stinky. The word here is 'musky' because of the musk glands all over the body.

Seriously, they are not bad smelling (after neutering), a wet dog smell worse than a ferret.

Like I said, only special people get to love and have ferrets. :)

I don't think I'll fall into the 'eeew eeew' category but I'd surely be one of those cautious people who'll look at the civet's cousin and its owner suspiciously.

Mwahaahhahahahaaha...

Shadowthorne said...

Aizan; Why suspiciously? We did nothing wrong. Prejudiced you.

Hey there!
Stumbled here from a friend's blog.
I know what a ferret is though I have never seen one. They look adorable! & from your description of Kaos (what does that mean?) a cute pet...
Wishing Kaos good health & a long life:)
Cheers

KAOS=Kill All On Sight

Shadowthorne said...

Choco; Welcome! Somebody told me that they might be no ferrets in India because the weather is too warm and humid.

Kaos is a pun of 'Chaos', pronounced the same.

Do you have pets?

Shadowthorne said...

Tenchi; Wow! I haven't think of that!

Choco said...

No there are no ferrets in India. There are no skunks here either! Yes. It could be because of the tropical weather...
I used to have a cat. But don't have any now....

Choco said...

Kill all on sight!?! Lolzzz

Shadowthorne said...

Choco; You love cats. Why don't you get another?

SSQuo said...

I'd come by and ask if I could pet him, and slowly sneak in a 'can i hold him'! :)

Have you lost oodles of weight by any chance?

Shadowthorne said...

SSQuo; Oh yes, and I'd sneak the order to bite the little girl then. :)

How you know I lost weight?
