When/Why did ferrets get the rep as "ugly and icky" pets?

I've been looking into getting one, looking into their care, costs, etc and when I talk to people the majority reaction I get is "Ewwww, ferrets. Ugh, Ugly, disgusting, little vermin. Who'd want one of those?"

Personally I think they're really cute and can't see anything ugly or icky about them, so i'm wondering where all this ferret-hate came from.
