Default i like the smell of ferrets

i also like the smell of shunk when you catch it on the wind while hunting or hiking (just not when it's all over the dog and he's trying to rub up on me).
my DW told me i am never allowed to say that in public.
what do you ladies here think?

I love the smell of my ferrets, though I cant say I like the smell of their litter box with six of them pooping in it

But the actual muskey smell of them I very much enjoy

I love a bit of ferret musk. Barrett was overwhelming when I first got him, though. Intact males are the WORST.

Now, both of mine have a very slight musk when you press your nose to their fur, and I love it. <3

I love it too. When I was looking for a ferret I'd go to the exotic pet store in town and handle a few of them, and for hours afterwards my hands would have that musky smell... and I loved it!

What do I think? Eww. That would be what I think. I really don't like the smell of a ferret, which would be why I don't own them anymore.

Ferrets have no smell really, unless you are shoving your nose right into them, or unless they are fed a crappy food, or not speutered.

I love the smell of skunk

Personally, I think kibble fed ferrets STINK! And intact hobs... Blehk!

I think my girls smell similar to grape soda... Murtagh's still I bit stinky, though
