i have two ferrets both are female some one had to get rid of them so i took them in. Gabby is six years old and Nina is five years old. gabby is very small she is the size of the baby ferrets in pet stores and i am not sure if it matters. nina is such a personality and love how they hope side ways when they play. they like to play with my sisters pug and the dog is more affraid of them. i cant even imagine what its like to not have them any more because they bring so much fun to the house.
