I just love this film!!!!
6 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

I have been waiting for this film for a long time, at last a film about a ferret. I am a little albino ferret, and my mummy is helping to write this review. When I first saw the forerunner with all the cardboard animals, I knew that I had to help, so I saved up my pennies and became a funder. How pleased I am that I did this, as Alison has done us proud with this film. Although it is only about half an hour long, it is still filled with love and compassion, and shows just how much we little ferrets can help people in times of need. Now I am hoping that a full length film will be made, as I am waiting to see what happens to the family now they have just found each other again, and little Jasper is now included as a valued member. A good family film, and a must for ferret lovers!!!
