I am owned by 3 ferrets. They are simply the best pets in the world. Ferrets are funny and curious and adorable. Just watching them helps to relax me. The way they play with each other is truly a laugh riot. Ferrets do something called a war dance where they leap in the air and twist around and bounce & roll - it's so fun to watch them.
Just having a pet is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I had always wanted a dog as a child, but I was allergic and my parents didn't let me get one. We did have a bird (Perry as in Perry Como), but you really couldn't play with him. I had a turtle and the usual goldfish, but again, you can't really interact with them. Ferrets, on the other hand, are great for interaction.
Chasing them around the house is fun, too. Also watching them steal the same things over & over again to hide in their hidey-holes, like socks or crocheted eggs.
I find myself much more relaxed ever since we adopted ferrets into our lives.
