One Ferret Is Never Enough

I was always wondering when I can have another fuzzy to accompany Kaos, my pet ferret at home. Ferrets are cute, lovable and very very active. My Kaos for instance, always look forward for me to play with him, never bites and would be very bored if left alone for long.

I like male ferrets better, because they are bulkier, bigger than the females. And male ferrets looks more like cats too.

Anyway, this afternoon as I was lazing aroung in the laboratory waiting for students, the guy who gave me Kaos for adoption called. Firstly we talked about my ferret well being, such a responsible breeder he is. Then he asked if I was interested to adopt another male ferret, which is younger than Kaos, who is now 7 months old. He told me that they have 30 ferrets altogether and needed responsible people who know and love ferrets (moi) to care for them.

I jumped to the bait and said yes. Personally I love these fuzzballs and two ferrets is actually better than a lonely one. [Ferrets are so social. Happy ferrets live longer] So my new ferret will arrive this middle of September, somewhat near the Eid.

Will tell Kaos of his new roomie this evening. He'd be delighted to have a friend to brawl with. The cage is big enough for four fuzzies actually.

Ferrets owners / masters will tell you that these mammals are many times better than a cat or a dog in many ways (maybe except the pooping part). And I happily agree with them. :)

Something to think about; Ferrets are the 3rd most popular pets after cats and dogs in the US. But many people do not have any idea how to care for them well enough...

Aizan; O young apprentice. Love is infinite. We can love so many things at once. My PS3, my laptop, my car, my Gundams, my Transformers, my comics, my blog etc etc

Shadowthorne said...

Tenchi; Oi, shush! I never do that to cute little critters. Anyway, the new ferret is also a male. And he will be neutered too. Mwa ha ha ha ha. So no little ferrets for you.

Ferrets always make me think of Frank Burns from MASH...

And do you find the love amongst all the evil and scheming?

Radio N; Sometimes a Darklord needs to go home for some ol cuddlin' n lovin' too. They say pet therapy is good for high strung people (like evil me).

Just what the doctor ordered. :)
