And all pet store ferrets are spayed and decented if they come from Hagen or Marshalls... but in the USA there are many who breed ferrets and sell them without both surgeries. In Canada, it's not commonly heard of to have unaltered ferrets.
The thing that makes me question if she's been altered or not is the fact that we don't have any pet shops of any kind (not even fish at Walmart) within an hour of our town in any direction.
We won't be keeping her, so I won't be investing in anything special for her, just Friskies and whatever else I can get her to eat. She woke up an hour ago and spent the first hour gobbling up food and water, the proceeded to explore the couch and my daughter's bedroom, with a LOT of supervision of course. We are not really prepared for a ferret, so nothing has been ferret proofed. :(
I have to get back to ferret sitting, she's so inquisitive! I'll post pictures in a little while! :)
