Today the UK celebrates its second Ferret Day - an annual event held every May 5th to raise awareness about these exotic pets. These adorable animals have been working with humans (and sometimes against them by stealing chickens) for over 2500 years, and ferret racing is still prevalent in rural fairs.
The name "ferret" comes from the Latin furittus, meaning "little thief," probably because the playful pet is known to steal small objects. Today, trained ferrets are used to lead wires and cables in confined spaces. And although ferret care has some specifics to it, these cute pets are rapidly gaining their popularity.
