Who lies behind Friendly Ferret?
At the beginning let me introduce myself. My name is Anja, I’m 26 years old and I am a civil engineering student. Yes, girls study that too. I live in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, for those who don’t know about Croatia, it is a country in Europe. I am a cheerful person who loves music and animals above everything.
What can I say about me? Well, I am Gemini, meaning I can’t just sit down and do nothing. I have to do or make something, so my room is filled with DIY things like bracelets, boxes, shelves…
Born in June in 1990, I am truly kid of the 90’s. I think that Pokémon is awesome, Disney cartoons are only cartoons worth looking over and over, Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls were far better idols than pop stars today and, of course, I think I had an awesome childhood.
The reason I started this blog is in 2013, you can easily say, my obsession with ferrets. In my opinion, they are the best animals in the world. If you have a ferret, your home is never boring, it is always filled with laughter, games, and positive energy.
I grew up watching movies with Silvester Stalone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis and somehow they are responsible for my love towards those little furballs. Why? Well, the first time I noticed this awesome animal was in a movie named ”Kindergarten Cop” ( starring, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger ) He plays a cop who has an undercover assignment as the kindergarten teacher, but he doesn’t know anything about children. In one scene he took beautiful ferret with him to kindergarten hoping children will be interested in it and stop yelling and running around. Of course, children were very interested in that little animal. And so was I. That one movie was my first encounter with ferrets and in the first second I knew I must and I will have this animal.
After a while, when I went to college I started to collect information about ferrets and I was disappointed in how ”unknown” they are as pets. There aren’t much information about them, so my goal with this blog is to show people what are ferrets and how are they like in real life. I am writing this blog for 3 years now and I have gone through a lot with Frida. We were teaching how to stop biting, how to walk on a leash, how to prevent heat stroke or what to do when you have a vet appointment. Now our family grew bigger and Frida got a younger brother, crazy Yoda who is a total opposite from Frida’s personality.
I started my blog from scratch, I knew very little about ferrets, but through 3 years I have gathered knowledge. There are posts on how to teach your ferret not to bite and there are posts on socializing two or more ferrets, which can be tricky.
For me, they are smart, kind, playful and above everything funny as hell.
I hope I will provide good and quality information about ferrets because they are extraordinary animals, but people are still suspicious about having them as pets and I want to assure them that there is nothing to worry about.
