Mary Kate and Ashlee -
Two Ferrets Mean Twice as Much Fun
Susan Daffron talks to Kim Reynolds from the Oregon Ferret Shelter about two ferrets that are available for adoption. Mary Kate and Ashlee are 3-year old pure white spayed female ferrets. They are roommates and love to play together so the folks at the Oregon Ferret Shelter are hoping they can be adopted to the same home. Mary Kate and Ashlee are both social, playful, and sweet. Kim calls ferrets a great "working-person's pet" because they sleep about 20 hours per day.
Although ferrets don't require a lot of care, they do need to have about an hour of playtime every day with their humans. You also should be prepared to "ferret-proof" your house because they are very curious and like to explore. Ferrets require good quality food and can be susceptible to a type of tumor, so it's a good idea to be prepared for care and veterinary expenses, just as you would for any other pet such as a dog or cat. If you want to learn more about caring for ferrets, check out the Oregon Ferret Shelter Web site, which has lots of helpful information on keeping ferrets healthy and happy.
