Today.....was awesome because a guy let me hold his ferret.
Erm.....the small cute weasel-esque animal, in case you were wondering. LOL
We were out running errands today, and Jesse wanted to stop by a fish store ~ since he has had his fish tank sitting in my living room, empty......for a month or so by now. It'll be a saltwater tank, so he has to stretch out the whole water cycling busniess for longer than a regular tank.
On one side of the store is the fish and associated stuff......
........and on the other side, there are reptiles, birds, and ferrets, rats, mice, bunnies, chinchillas, etc...
When the sales dude saw me leaning over the rat cage, he asked if I wanted to play with one. Well, of course! There was this adorable hairless rat......who was a smidge too hyper for me...... but then I asked about the ferret (for sale - $110!). It was a babyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
So, I held the babyyyyyy and snuggled her....and played with her.....and she fell asleep on me.
If I thought my other pets would get along with a ferret, I'd get it. I was that much in love with her.
