Why we love ferrets

1) You don't have to take them for a walk, (Although it's fun if you do.)

2) You get lots of exercise chasing them and cleaning up after them.

3) They give the best kisses.

4) Their energy is contagious.

5) They are the only animal that can do the weasel war dance.

6) They love you no matter what.

7) They are like cats without the attitude.

8) When you’re looking for something they hid, you find something you didn’t know was missing.

10) You don’t have to worry about them holding a grudge.

11) Nothing enjoys life like a ferret — because of that, they spread smiles faster than any critter around.

12) When they kiss you, you get whiskers tickling you up your nose.

13) They love you more than any pet can.

14) They know the perfect place to hide your things so no one can find them — even you.

15) A wet ferret is the cutest ferret.

23) Ferrets are quiet, funny and act like youngsters ’til they die.

24) You’ll never see a mean one, and they don’t seem to have tempers likes cats and dogs.

25) They’re quieter than dogs.

27) They are as playful and entertaining as pups and kittens most of their lives. Perfect apartment pets.

28) They travel well.

29) They don’t have tempers and never hold a grudge.
