My ferret, Penny, is very spunky. One time I was on the third floor of my house, I was looking for a movie, to watch with my boyfriend, and Penny must have followed us upstairs. I found a movie and turned around to see Penny at my feet. She began jumping backwards farther and farther. I heard a loud thump. I screamed and my boyfriend caught me from falling. We both ran to the bottom floor to see Penny happily jumping around. My jaw dropped in amazement to find an un-injured ferret who had just fell three stories. We took her to the vet and concluded that she was ok. Thank God!
