Ferrets! It’s not often that I feature ferrets in this here space, ’cause there aren’t usually of whole lot of the little buggers available for adoption – or at least not locally – and those who are, are usually listed through the Kansas City Ferret Hotline. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; not at all! I just like to highlight a wide variety of animal rescue groups, too.

Woozelnaree is currently staying at Wayside Waifs, which you probably know through its dog and cat rescue and educational activities. In the several years that I’ve been writing this column, Woozelnaree is the first ferret I’ve ever seen at Wayside. Here’s what they have to say about the little guy:

Hi, I’m Woozelnaree! I’m a very handsome guy looking for a home to call my own. I’m a very well mannered ferret, and I’m usually easy to handle. I love to explore my surroundings and watch everything going on around me. Of course, I always want to join in on all the fun and mischief.

Are you familiar with ferrets? If not, let me enlighten you with some ferret facts. According to a popular ferret website, we are “the third most common uncaged pets in North America today.” How cool is that? That means more and more people are “ferret proofing” their homes and letting us live cage free. Once we are litter boxed trained and you have ferret proofed your home, you can let your ferret roam free around him/her room. Of course, you’ll want to keep my living area free of debris that I could ingest! And you’ll want to watch where you step or move things, just to keep me out of harms way. I’m very gregarious, and I love meeting new people. Ferrets are very social pets, and we often do well with being kept with other ferrets. What is life without a best friend?

Now you should know that I do have my faults. I am a bit of a kleptomaniac! Sorry, but it’s true! I’ll take whatever I can fit in my mouth and make off with it as quickly as I can. Don’t be surprised while you’re cleaning if you find my stockpile of stolen things. Those things may or many not include your long forgotten missing sock, a dryer sheet, a cat toy, a roll of stamps, some of your childrens’ toys, a dog toy, and the drain stopper to your tub. Consider yourself warned! And sometimes, just sometimes, we ferrets get a little excited and will give you a love nip. It usually doesn’t hurt much, but it is one of the ways we explore our world and surroundings. So if you aren’t comfortable helping me learn good play manners, than I may not be the right pet for you. If I still sound like your perfect pet, come make me yours today! I can’t wait to meet you! Ask to meet me, Woozelnaree, today!
