How One Ferret Can Make a Difference
5 February 2012 | by pickledferretSee all my reviews

This film depicts the real life relationships between family members and pets. The choreography and music are upbeat and keep things flowing. The actors were superb and played their parts with great emotion and excitement. I give the movie a ten star rating for depicting a ferret as a viable pet and important member of a family. Jasper bonds with Jake and the relationship flourishes. The pair soon become inseparable. And a love is fostered that really shows how well some pets, especially ferrets, make good therapy pets for young and old alike. The director owns a pet ferret and knows best how to portray their unique personalities. Please take the time to "learn" the truth about ferrets. They are such loving, whimsical, comical creatures with uninhibited exuberance!
