  • Many novice owners don't realize that smaller, exotic pets such as ferrets often require as much time and attention as a dog or cat
  • If you're thinking about adding a ferret to your household, the first thing you should so is ensure you can legally own one where you live
  • There are many other things to consider if you'll be a first-time ferret parent, for example, did you know these cute little creatures have a strong musky odor?
