Ferrets will bite you but as young they are like puppies biting ferrets are not aggressive but do tend to smell do to a gland. But ferrets are cute and adorable.

Bathing just makes them smell worse, since it strips the skin of oils, then the skin oil glands go into overdrive.
Bathing ferrets is akin to bathing a cat anyway, so the less I have to do it, the better
It's really the skin oil glands that most people smell, not the "scent" (anal) gland like most think. "Descenting" a ferret actually does nothing.
Mine don't smell unless I leave the litterbox too long.

And yes, they are quite hyper

Myth: Betta fish hate correct spelling, capitalization, sentence structure and punctuation.

False! It makes it much harder for them to read anything, such as Betta forum posts, when what they're reading doesn't contain any of these things. Bettas need correctly written posts to be able to understand what the post is trying to say. Although minor mistakes are always forgiven because the Bettas understand that everyone misspells a word sometimes. They also know it's difficult to type with their tiny little pectoral fins, so whenever someone punches the wrong letter on the keyboard, it is also generally forgiven. But they do strongly suggest that other Bettas on the forum attempt correct grammar as much as possible. Otherwise, the Bettas will mostly disregard what the offending Betta writes, since they assume that any Betta typing that way has nothing of note to write.

the town i used to live in actually had a stable feral cat population. there were warrens of them all over, and they live just like any other wild animal, not disturbing anything or causing trouble to anyone. i honestly don't see the problem with letting a cat that's already wild just be wild, seeing as they retain so many of their original instincts and revert to them so easily.
