I sniff weasels

Sara wants pets. I’m allergic to cats, and dogs need a lot of walking. Lizards and birds aren’t cuddly. Spiders can be furry, but we need a pet I can stand to be within sight of. So, our attention has been converging on mustela furo, the domestic ferret. Of course, first I need to check I’m not allergic to ferrets. It has been known to happen. So tonight we went to an ‘exotic’ pet store, and I handled a ferret.
