My 8yo’s dream job is to work at PetCo.
And currently, she is obsessed with ferrets. We checked out three books on ferrets from the library. She leaves them lying open on chairs and couches. “Mom, if you have any questions on ferrets, you just let me know.”
She inserts facts on ferrets into all our conversations now. “8yo, could you please clean your room?” She giggles, “Yeah, I better get practice in cleaning so that when I have a ferret he doesn’t get lost in there! Did you know ferrets can squeeze into a 2×2 hole?”
I have no experience in ferrets. I have no idea if they’re good pets or not. I picked up the Animal Planet Guide to Ferrets today (I had to, it was on my chair) and read that you should crawl around on your hands and knees and look for all the holes your ferret could go into – like under the fridge or stove. !!
I don’t know. Seems scary. I think I’d rather go back to killing goldfish.
