Ferrets and condos do not mix

So we got a ferret to join us in our little condo that we found on Craigs List.  Although it has had its scent glands removed, and the cage is freshly cleaned, the smell very quickly overtook our home, and we are looking for some family who is already accustomed to pets and their smell to take this sweet ferret home with them.

Lessons learned:
  1. Visit a potential pet in its current environment before officially adopting it. (i.e. don't have it delivered sight unseen).
  2. Ask for a grace period in which you can return it.
  3. Don't get a pet when you have just a little space for it, where the smell can build up.
