For the first time in more than 70 years, black-footed ferrets Mustela nigripes are now living wild on Canadian soil. The endangered species—once "probably the rarest mammals on Earth," according to the Black-Footed Ferret Recovery Program —disappeared from Canada in , and was thought to have gone completely extinct around About half of this batch of released ferrets were born in the Toronto Zoo's ferret breeding program, and then temporarily transferred to a similar facility in the U. It's been a long, dangerous few decades for the black-footed ferret. The chance discovery of the world's last population of around ferrets near Meeteetse, Wyo. It almost didn't happen. Soon after its discovery, the Meeteetse population was devastated by canine distemper and sylvatic plague that's a variation of bubonic plague, by the way.

Or how about this white fellow who enjoys taking a soapy bath. Absolutely adorable.
My partner and I are looking at getting two ferrets, but we are very conscious that we are hoping to move to Japan for a year or so in the next few years. Could you tell me if it is possible to take ferrets with you to Japan from the UK and vice versa? And also what kinds of costs are involved if this is possible? Many thanks, Jess. Thank you for your question.

I'm not married to a doctor, but have been with one through her training and early years 5 years - she's currently in her first year of speciality training as a paediatrician this is in the UK by the way. We are a welcoming community. What's NOT to like about being the wife of a medical doctor. I think Bob, the answer can be found in your comment. Unless you convert she won't marry you, plain and simple. Going along with her cult might feel fine when it is just you in her, but if you have kids, it will be very different. I know my husband appreciates me looking into it because he knows I am doing it to gain an understanding into the culture he was raised in. For reference we're both in our mids. If so that's a good sign.
But his absence in the spiritual side of my life, and that of my mother, was very hard. I think she sounds great but she won't be able to not bring it up. Plan on rolling your eyes A LOT at family get torturers together. Odds are majorly against this dude. The rest of it is all just the normal course of events for someone in this situation, but this isn't a good sign: If he were thinking about you, he'd contact you when he does have the rare free minute or two. Do you schedule time in to talk and see each other. Sometimes I think he is the man who shouldn't have had a family but just a career too late for that now though. You would be her back up plan in case she can't find a guy who is a returned missionary, preferably from a prominent LDS family. But it's the away rotations for months at a time that get really hard. Sadly, my ward shuns us.
