Good Morning! New member here We just picked up our new addition a few days ago. I'm estimating that she is approximately 4 months old. I have wanted a ferret for a very, very lonnnng time (as otters are my most favorite critters ever), but I wanted to wait until my kids were older and more responsible. Some day I'd love to have a younger baby, but this girl needed a home (she is still super skinny, all bones, and reeked of cigarette smoke when we picked her up).
