Just the Ticket: Ferret fury!

JUST THE TICKET:Ferret fury!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~

Edited by Felicity Perkins

* Ferret enthusiasts are furious over new EU legislation which could
make their favourite pets second class European citizens - behind rats and mice.

The fur is set to fly over plans by Euro-lawmakers to prevent
ferrets from having their own pet passports which enable animals to
travel in and out of Britain with their owners.

Pet passports - until now the preserve of cats and dogs - are set to
be extended to cover rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs and chinchillas
living in the UK, exempting them from quarantine regulations.

But ferret owners in the North-East are livid over fears that their
pets will be refused full European citizenship.

Wife to an amazing man,
mom to three wonderful kids (9, 5.10, 4),
2 dogs, 3 hermit crabs and 2 bettas

Yep, as it stands, any ferrets being brought into the UK have to be put into a required 6 month quarantine
