I remember when I had my pet ferret.. His name was Rondo Wiggles. Yes, as in Rondo from the Celtics and now plays for the Dallas Mavericks. Taking care of a ferret was the hardest thing I had ever done. It was harder than taking care of a cat. It pooped every 20 minutes and even though it was small, the smell was very loud. The funniest thing about having a ferret is that when they sleep, they go into a dead sleep. Which is a sleep where you can move them, pick them up, etc. and they still will not wake up.
