Excellent story about the love and friendship that exists between a young boy & his ferret. A must see for all ferret folk! If you're an animal lover, watch this movie! Those who say animals can't love are so wrong. Jake & Jasper shows the loving bond between animal & human. It also shows that when you really need them, friends are all around you, in many shapes & sizes. It's wonderful to see ferrets portrayed in film. We need more great movies like this one. For fuzzy lovers everywhere, it shows how a ferret can steal your heart even when its breaking and help it mend. Family doesn't just mean human relatives. For true animal lovers, pets are family too!
