Please keep this in mind when rescuing or adopting a ferret

This is a story, author unknown, about shelter ferrets. Please keep this in mind if you plan on getting a ferret, and consider adopting rather than encouraging pet stores to flood the market with baby ferrets while some many wonderful older kits and adults go without, waiting for a home to call their own

Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed, all nicely tucked in my warm bed, I'd like to open my baggage Lest I forget, There is so much to carry- So much to regret.

Hmmm... Yes there it is, right on the top, Let's unpack Loneliness, heartache and loss, and there by my carrier hides Fear and Shame.

As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave- I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

I loved them, the others, the ones who left me, but I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.

Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack? Or will you just look at my things- and take me right back? Do you have the time to help me unpack?

To put away my baggage, To never repack? I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,

But I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?
