We acquired Charlie and his sister Bonnie September 15, 1997 as 11 or 12 week old kits. During their first week with us we kept them under quarantine from the other ferrets, letting them play in a pen of boxes set up in the basement rather than the spare bedroom that is the usual ferret play room. This image dates from this period. The roll of carpet under Charlie (intended to eventually cut up for rugs to pave the ferret cages) was placed in the pen as a ferret toy.
