Ferret means thief
That is the translation of ferret. So why I am suprised when my ferret Tiffany, constantly steals my yarn to stash under the couch, I have no clue. Actually, taking the yarn under the couch isn't the worse part, the worse part is that her other favorite thing to snatch are my husbands worn socks. That is the worse part, my pristine yarn next to his smelly socks under the couch. BLECH!
