||Crow and Bungee
||Two years old, Nine months old|
||San Antonio, Texas, USA|
is a sable ferret (the lighter of the two in the photo). He
turned two years old in August. Bungee is a chocolate sable, and is
now nine months old.
Right now, ferrets are the current "fad" pet. Many people get them,
but don't know how to take care of them. Through a combination of
advice, information and humor, thousands of people have learned how
to better care for their pets. Crow and Bungee are the best of friends. Crow is more
docile and quiet than Bungee, and Bungee is playful and outgoing.
They always love to snuggle up (as you can see!) and sleep close.
Early in the mornings, the boys can roughhouse for hours. They love to
entince us to play with them.
Crow is a lovable two-year-old. A lot of people with ferrets find it
better to have more than one. Crow was very happy when he was an
"only ferret" with our cat, but with the addition of another ferret,
he completely blossomed. Bungee is larger than Crow is by almost a
full pound! He's also still growing and will be for another few
months. In the winter months, both boys put on weight to help get
them through the winter.
Tag is one of their favorite games. Both are much faster than we are
and love hiding under the bed. They also like crawling in
pillowcases, playing in their tube and pulling all the books off of
Bungee and Crow were co-founders of the very
first ferret club
at Yahoo!, as well as having
their own website
at - soon to be furryfaces.com. I'd recommend that anyone considering
getting ferrets as pets read up on them before they make any
adoptions. They are fabulous pets, but aren't for everyone!
