Q: My daughter wants a ferret, but she would like to know how is his/her behavior around people. Are ferrets friendly? Do they like to stay with you? Etc.
A: A lot of what you ask depends on the individual ferret personality and age. Young ferrets tend to be more playful and independent while older ferrets are more snuggly. If you adopt a ferret from a ferret shelter, the shelter operator usually has an idea of the personality of each ferret and its level of playfulness, friendliness and independence.
