lol I think I responded to your dog post.
With ferrets they can make good family pets but also need training and can be trained almost like a dog. The young ones do go through a biting stage when they are teething. Also you will want to get it fixed and de-scented and some shots which is about 200 to 400 (depending on vet).
They can be stinky and even after being de-scented they still have a musky order. ALSO they love to steal things like keys, wallets out of purses, anything they can carry (which would really shock you to see what they can drag of) and they will stick them under couches and in closets and stuff. You can litter train them and let them run loose in the house.
They are very loving (but you can come across a mean one) and they are a crack up to watch their antics.
Just read up on them, with training. Their cages cost about 400 (though you can get deals on craigs list just wash the cage)
