PETCO(TM) aims to educate guests about the ins and outs of ferret pet parenting during their monthly “Meet the Critters” event on September 3-4, 2011 from 1-2 p.m. Like cats, ferrets are generally clean, sleep a lot and can easily be trained to use a litter box. However, like dogs, ferrets have a playful side, are very intelligent and can be taught to rollover and fetch. This combination makes ferrets the perfect choice for both dog and cat lovers.
During the two-day, family-friendly Meet the Critters event, attendees can interact with ferrets, as well as learn diet, behavior and habitat information from one of PETCO trained employees. The free, monthly educational event allows guests of all ages to enjoy these hands-on activities while learning important information about responsible pet ownership.
For more information on the event please contact a local PETCO or go to PETCO.com/critters. Not all PETCO locations will feature the ferret. Those not featuring the ferret will instead focus on the guinea pig. For specific information on individual Meet the Critters events, please contact the local PETCO location.
