Have you ever seen a ferret riding in a toy car? Well this my dear ferrety friends is your chance!
Rikki, is the beautiful fur baby of Euel and Connie Oliver. Here is what Euel had to say:
"Rikki is four years old and a healthy raw fed girl. My wife, Connie thought of putting her on the little car. Rikki's a laid back cuddle bug so we put her in first. I've got six others that'll get to ride tomorrow. lol ;)
We try to keep 'em happy. We take them to the bay twice a week and little Flake pretty much goes everywhere with my wife. My first ferret belonged to a co-worker that grew tired of him. I liked the little guy and scooped him up for fifty dollars. That was Longfellow, Ferris was about a month later under similar circumstances.
What I like most about them? What's not to like? lol
I've known no other living thing that embodies the simple joy of existence as they do, and they spread this joy to those that love them."
Please re-read how special and beautiful that last sentence is.
"I've known no other living thing that embodies the simple joy of existence as they do, and they spread this joy to those that love them."
Isn't that the truth!
Euel was also kind enough to send me a poem he wrote about ferrets. Read it below :)
Ferrets, by Euel Oliver
They are as the softly glowing stars against the gloaming, bringing wonder and the laughter of children catching fireflies.
Each one a sparkling jewel.
Each one a remembrance of a time when fairies danced amongst the dew laden ferns.
Enchanting as the dance of snowflakes, as the swirling of leaves in the autumn breeze.
They are caught up with those that love them, in the wonder and mystery of life.
You can really tell that Rikki and her siblings are loved and cared for very well :) Most importantly they are being mentally stimulated with lots of great activities!
