Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but one thing I highly suggest you consider if you get ferrets, is to not buy from a Pet store that sells Marshall's ferrets (AKA the majority of pet stores). I worked at a pet store for 4 years, knew lots of people that had ferrets, including my best friend/manager at the store, and many Marshall ferrets have health problems. Plus their "warranty" hardly covers anything. Instead, I would do lots of research on other breeders, because they are out there! I would love to have ferrets someday when I have kids, and I will for sure buy them from a breeder who I have researched thoroughly.
