At first, I was just going to go for the generic cat. But I've always wanted a ferret, and that's seeming more and more like what I want to go for. So my question(s) are for any ferret owners out there, or anyone who knows a lot about them.
What are the things you think someone should absolutely know before getting a ferret? How noisy are they? If I had only one, would it be lonely without another to play with? Do any of you know of any good ferret rescue organizations I could go through, especially around the Madison, WI area?
Thanks so much for any help you can give! I'd love to adopt a ferret or two, but I don't want to jump into it without knowing a whole lot about them.
