Fish to Farret
by Skittles Mommy
So last weekend I decided to go to the Pet Store and get myself a fish, well I came home with a Ferret! As I'm standing in the living room watching my boyfriend set up the new cage, I'm thinking to myself "OMG what was I thinking" I don't have a clue how to take care of a ferret, what do they eat? do they need a litter box? will the ferret get along with my cats or vice versa?
Well I jumped on the internet and googled everything I could find about taking care of a ferret. I know what to feed her and how to litter train her, what all of her needs will be, but the best info about ferret training hasn't come from google or the internet or any books I've been reading......Skittles (that's my new babies name)has taught me so much, like where she wants to sleep in her cage, where she wants her litter box,that she prefers her water bowl upside down and her food at the bottom of the cage and not inside the bowl, what toys she wants to play with (like my new shoes) and what needs to be done to Skittle proof the house. It's not about training the ferret but about the ferret training me, sometimes I don't get things right the first time but Skittles is very patient with me. She insist I will be a good Mommy with practice.
Ive only been Skittles Mommy for a week but I'm so glad I came home with a ferret and not a fish as I'm sure the fish would not be as patient with me as Skittles is.
