How can the same person keep both ferrets and rats? Ferrets were domesticated specifically to kill rats!
The ferrets were at various points over the last 30 years or so. My first ferret was Silas, who I adopted on Feb 15, 1988 or 89. Little Bear, Shadow, Hudson, Charlie, and Ivan arrived over the years. Ivan passed around 2008.
The rats were a new thing for me. I didn't anticipate adopting them, it just sort of happened, but I'm really glad it did.
Thanks for the good vibes GM_Beernog! I'm kind of running on them at this point after Brin slipped her outfit last night, then slipped the wrap we tried, then slipped the new outfit I made as well. ugh. Why Brin, why!?! Basically, I have to just hope she heals without a cover, as I just don't know what else to do at this point. Yet another vet visit tomorrow, and I'm just trying to get through the next 20 hours.
