Denton, TX -- I'll move to Denton in a couple weeks. I have a ferret who will travel with me. Unfortunatelly I must spend a couple months (1 or 2) in the UK around September.

She loves new people and she has never bitten anybody. She sleeps twenty hours a day so you should just feed her, clean her litter box and play with her half an hour or an hour a day.
