Ferret merit

They’re soft, long, twee-faced, friendly, frisky, inquisitive, and downright irresistible. They live a heck of a lot longer than hamsters, guinea pigs or mice (up to 10 years or more). And they bond and interact with humans more closely than many other pets.

We’re talking, of course, about Mustela putorius furo—better known as the ferret. But despite making great pets, these critters often get overlooked by pet stores who choose not to offer them or their products.
