Hello, I’m “Under the Toronto Sun’s” guest blogger today. If I get lots of hits and possible comments, I might get a regular spot on this blog.
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Debbie and I’m a ferret. Yes, you read that right, a ferret.
If you think humans are the only bloggers, think again. Pets blog too, you could say they lead double lives.
When humans are around, they act like animals should: they meow, bark, they’re being cute or they make a nuisance of themselves. But when their owners go to sleep or leave the house to go to work, to school, or out to dinner, everything changes. When nobody’s watching, pets’ live get a lot more interesting. They watch TV, play music, or read books and magazines
Personally, I’ve developed an interest in computers. I’ve been doing a lot of research on ferrets and I’ve been blogging about them (and other animals) for the past three years. I even wrote a little children’s book that I named after me … “Debbie”.
I thought it might be a good idea to write about how I got adopted, went to live in a condo and what happened after that. There are many books available about cats and dogs and even rabbits, but not much is known about ferrets.
Ferrets are generally misunderstood. Many people think we’re like rats, which is absolutely ridiculous. I mean, look at the pictures below, one is of a rat, the other of a ferret. Those who can’t see the difference need to get their eyes checked.
We’re also a lot of fun, when we’re awake that is. Yes, we sleep a lot (sometimes 20 hours a day), but during the time that we're awake we’re always up to something. They don’t call certain species of ferrets “bandits” for nothing. Which is something you can read about in “Debbie”.
Okay, so that’s it for now. If you want to read more of my hand (paw) let me know and I’ll get right on it.
