Owning a ferret is certainly a joy. A little furball can make you laugh when it does the Weasel War Dance or begs for treats. It can drive you crazy when it steals your cell phone, and it can weasel its way into your heart when it curls up on your lap to take a snooze.
With the fun, however, there also comes responsibility. On a daily basis, you need to provide food, water and plenty of playtime. And don’t forget the job we all love — cleaning out those litter boxes. On a weekly basis, there’s grooming and cage cleaning to be taken care of. And on a yearly basis, there’s the annual vet check to schedule.
If you’re taking all of these responsibilities seriously, you probably think you have all of your bases covered. But wait a minute. Have you thought about what will happen to your fuzzy if the unexpected occurs?
