Anyone with Ferrets??

Hi, I have lots of ferrets (as pets, not for rabbiting) and I was wondering if anyone else on this forum has any?
Here are mine:

Wow your so lucky, I'd do anything to have a pet ferret.

I have a Ferret, her name is MissFit, and for short we call her Lil' Miss

Her Brother recently passed away. He got Cancer pretty badly, and ended up turning for the worse, so we took him to the Vet and they "Put him to sleep" for us.

His name was Rocky. His nick name was "Doodle"

I love ferrets. I'm considering getting two after my current trio of rats pass on. (I hate how short their life span is. :[ ) Can anyone tell me honestly how much ferrets smell and how easy they are to litter train? I hear back and forth arguments about whether or not they have a smell, and don't want anything too smelly because I live in an apartment with roommates and such.

Anyway, gorgeous ferrets! If I could afford another cage I'd probably already have them. My local humane society has two pretty girls right now for adoption.

Peppy, your Gypsy looks a lot like my now deceased girl, Penny.

Penny was almost 7 y/o when I lost her.

Gillian, they do have a musky scent, since they're part of the weasel family. I used to call Penny my stinky weasel.

You can easily potty train them, and they're smart as whips. However, they're balls of furious energy, and the best description I ever heard was that they're like kittens on crack.

They're either going full bore, or they're asleep. I've seen them fall asleep in midstride, and then it's like they're in a coma.

Interesting, funny, amazing little critters. I'd love to get another one or two eventually.

I am actually a first time ferret owner. There names are Bandit and Sally ( two little girls named them) I have never had soo much fun with them. They get along with my cat and its funny when they play...

Ferrets smell just like any other animal and a human does. My friend says her ferret smells like an apricot dumpling, to me my ferret smells like honey. Anyone thinking about getting a ferret and worrying about their smell should first visit somebody with one to see what it is like to them. I've heard about people who couldn't stand it, I don't really understand why but then again I can't really stand dogs.

I have a beautiful albino boy called Cocaine, he's a year and half, uncastrated and will never be as long as we don't have to do it for medical reasons. I had a little harlequin boy called Saki in past, he died 5 years ago due to a d*ck vet who vaccinated him some crap that is prohibited to vaccinate nowadays.

And the only photo of Saki I have
