WHAT!I CAN'T BELIVE THIS! Someone please tell me I am wrong

Postby Foxyjadda » Mon Jul 25, 2011 5:04 pm

I hate where I live I just hate it! :wall: :chair: :-x
My mother said I can have another pet soon so I got so excited :piggy: . I did a lot of research of ferret because they are good pet .I list of prices and every thing right when I am saving for this pet I read something telling me ferret are illegal where I live I am so mad there is no way out of this ban :icon-frown: . I wish I can move to long island where almost any exotic pet I like is allowed like fennecs and ferrets . I hate it here I just want to cry my eyes out :cry: ever thing I just did for a ferret won't come true

I will have to wait until I am old enough to move out into long island and buy me a ferret. "monkshock:



Please tell this is not true that new York city bans ferrets no matter what please tell it's not true :cry:

I'm sorry... I didn't know that ferrets were illegal in New York City. :cry: Not sure how much good it would do, but you could always talk to city hall about it.

Yea I know I can talk to city hall but what good would it do I am12 nobody listens to12 years olds
I would ask my mother to talk to them but I think she is happy with law

And It wouldn't change because the mayor say they are like tigers which.

Reminds me of a story of 5th graders in PA trying to legalize hedgehogs:

It wouldn't hurt to try.

This is why it's important to research before getting your hopes up. I would have imagined you'd see if they were legal in your state to own before deciding on getting one.

I was researching but I was researching on the ferret because just walking distans from my house is this petco that sells ferret so I thought they was allowed but once I found out they was banned I asked my mother and she told me that everyone knew that the petco was in long island

Why are ferrets banned from new York city. They are perfect for the city life, they are like a mixture of cat and dog but in a tiny body, they also dont bark and meow like cats and dog but yet they will snuggle and play fetch and you can teach them tricks.Thats why you should let ferrets be legal to own in new York city because they can be your companion with out the big or loud.

So yea thought you might wanted to read that i might try again or some what yea.
I wont give up! :peng:

I'd suggest cleaning your message up and adding some real facts in there about how ferrets are good as pets, and why legislation against them in your city is unwarranted.

Okay is this okay...

Ferrets are banned from New York City because "Ferrets are known for their unpredictable behavior, and they are prone to vicious, unprovoked attacks on humans." Some ferrets do not all attack ,yes they may play a little rough and the babies like to nip but if they are trained properly they can become a loving animal like a dog."In New York City's multiple dwelling residences, which are not natural habitats of ferrets, a ferret could crawl through holes in walls or travel along risers or ducts to other apartments, with potentially tragic consequences for the neighbor of a ferret owner." Maybe you could have them examine the pet owners house to make sure they dont have any holes ferrets can crawl through.Maybe you can check the cages of the ferret to make sure they are no escape proof.



Thats all I got done still thinking is it any good any changes?

That's a really stupid reason for banning them--they think they'll get into the walls? :roll:

Instead of suggesting a cage inspection, I would just emphasize in a courteous way how stupid that aspect of the ban is. Hamsters, mice, rats, snakes, lizards, and any other small pet could get into the walls with even more "disastrous" results. Don't put those animals in a bad light, just explain that these other animals are more than capable of finding smaller holes. So you could even say that encouraging someone to keep a ferret over a mouse would be a great benefit.
