It should probably be noted that 8 in 1 Ferret Ultra-Blend Advanced Nutrition was recalled in this whole melamine thing with cat and dog food recalls. Don't feed recalled food.

The exact lot/UPC:
8 in 1 Ferret ULTRA-BLEND ADVANCED NUTRITION DIET, NET WT. 20 LBS, UPC 26851 00413, Code: C7072.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.

Carissa...make sure you cite your sources. That's plagiarism if you don't. I would hate if someone did that to my work.

Those two posts you made were taken almost verbatim from Artroxy's Food Chart and from Calvin_and_Hobbes Ferret Nutrition Article from the EverythingFerret forum.

Sorry...just had to give credit where credit was due.

Of course you got them from there. You couldn't copy Artroxy's food chart because it's a picture, so you had to type it out.

Oh ok. Well, from the statement "I have a note book full on information about all my animals," you made it sound like you compiled the lists yourself. I would have probably mentioned who I got the info from, especially if they were part of the same forum...

Anyways, those articles I linked are the originals -- read them to get the full story on what to feed. Just giving credit where it's due =].

Well I used to copy all kinds of notes and info into notebooks for reference...but that doesn't mean I am saying they are mine!!! I would never say that any info I copied into something was mine if it wasn't.

You guys should be nicer to Carissa!

I understand. It's just that I've been a member of that forum for so long, and they are extremely strict about who uses their articles without permission. Carissa is also a member of that forum(I knew of her there before I knew of her here), so I figured she would have come across these articles before. Haha, Artroxy's Food Chart(linked above) is that forum's claim to fame! There's no way you can deny that if you've been a member for a while...it's stickied above every single subforum on that message board because it was a very important project.

Anyways, that's why I said what I said.
