My name is Claire. I am nearly 13 and really really really want a ferret, but my parents won’t let me have one!
I’ve already got a dog and two gerbils but I really want a ferret to complete my pet family. I have done two powerpoints, written a two page long letter in size 12 font about why I should get a ferret, tried to talk to them, but they still won’t give in!
They told me I can’t have one because they are too much of a commitment and I won’t have time to care for it when I start studying for exams. They’re also saying that we have enough animals and don’t need more to look after, but I’m the one that does everything for the gerbils and I help out with the dog.
I have enough money to buy a ferret and everything it needs, and I get £20 a month pocket money, so I would be able to buy all the food and bedding every month. Please give me some advice!
