And this is his favorite ball. Ferrets are fond of anything rubber. They will steal to have it. They will hide it in places undisclosed. If you want it returned, you must search, and search, and search. Keep in mind, if you find that which you were looking for and return it to its proper place, as soon as possible it will be pilfered a second (or third time) and placed in the preferred hiding place. In this paraticular case, Woodstock likes to hide the ball in the dresser drawer.
