We are going for a ferret. I feel this will be just as well for me as a psych dog. I'm really excited about this, just intimidated about where to go. Naturally, I would like a kit, but I cannot in good conscience pay for a marshall kit and don't know where else to go. I'm already on the hunt for a nice single-ferret cage. Even my dad said this would be good for me. He knows how attached I was to my first ferret, which he bought for me. I want a dog, still, so bad, but I understand this needs to wait. A ferret is much more acceptable and logical. Jess, I will be after you lots. Also looking to connect with other ferret owners.
