As embarrassing as it is to admit, I kind of just got Loki on a whim without really thinking about it because he's cute. Now that I really give it some actual thought, I can't honestly say I'm willing to put up with the smell or give the time and effort needed to train him and take care of him properly. The smell dominated my whole room even just overnight and now I smell like ferret too. I guess I forgot exactly how bad it is. Both the smell and the noise he made kept me up half the night. On top of that, I don't even know what I'd do with him in two years when I move out and get a dorm.
It's better for both me and the ferret if I just swallow my pride now and give him back to the pet store than it is for me to lie to myself and keep a pet that I don't REALLY want. The sooner I do that, the sooner he can get an owner who's really prepared for him.
In short, I knew what I was getting into, I just ended up not wanting to get into it.
