I know all kinds of people who got cats during the lockdown but all of us decided to rescue a ferret instead.
I have always wanted a ferret but I know that they need a great deal of attention and I was never at the household long enough to give them any.
With the lockdown, I knew I would be working from my household for the foreseeable future. I thought that was perfect. So all of us ferret proofed our household and then went and picked up our new ferret! The people I was with and I named him Chica and she is a great deal of fun. However, our Heating and Air Conditioning device has not been working right ever since all of us brought Chica home. It is always incredibly freezing in the bedrooms and rather boiling in the family room and kitchen. I know this is because all of us leave the bedroom doors closed most of the day while Chica is out of her cage. That doesn’t create good enough air circulation. Because all of the rooms in the household get the same amount of cooled air, the small bedrooms are really cold and the greater portions of the household are warm. I learned that you can put up a baby gate to keep ferrets out of rooms and I tried that but Chica easily climbed right over the baby gates, so I might need to look into getting zone control for the household so all of us can keep the whole home entirely comfortable. I am planning on calling our Heating and Air Conditioning contractor to get a quote tomorrow. Either that, or I need to ferret proof every room in the household and I don’t know if that is possible.
