    I've had a lot of pets over the years (mostly a rather extensive collection of pampered felines) but Lily the albino ferret was definitely an interesting addition to the menagerie. I didn't know a great deal about ferrets when I got her, and in hindsight, it was a rather...

    There Is No Life Without Ferrets. <3

    I remember clearly the first time I saw a little woozel. I was 12 years old. I was begging my mom for one, but she thought they were disgusting. Fastfoward 4 years later, and on my sixteenth birthday, I finally convinced my mother to get me a ferret. Years of research and love...

    I really never had any thoughts of ferrets before, that is until three years ago. My daughter's boyfriend at the time got an albino baby ferret, named Gizmo, which by then she wanted one of her own, so she does. Hers was named Lil Devil. The two ferrets stayed at the boyfriends...

    Ah, the Beauty of Ferrets..

    My love for ferrets began about a month ago. I saw this video called "Ferrets" (youtube it - it's like a cartoon). I loved it. And then my friend got my a ferret frenzy on vacation calendar for Christmas. So, needless to say, I'm a ferret fanatic.
