Maybe if YOU took care of YOUR pets, instead of leaving the responsibility to your parents then this would not have happened. It sucks being lied to, but I don't feel bad that you lost a pet you didn't take care of. I always had pets growing up, my parents made it clear that if I didn't take care of them, then my parents would find someone who would. Now I have two ferrets, a cat, pay my own tuition and have my own condo. Responsibility is a valuable lesson to learn. It sucks, but you need to learn it. I am sorry they lied about it though.
All three my ferrets are free to roam. They are much better at not pooping everywhere and chewing things than my dog, who, for that reason, is kept in a crate when I'm not home. Personally, I haven't noticed any smell, nor have I ever heard any of my friends complain of a smell. Although I think it may because they're very well litter trained, and their boxes are scooped twice a day.
@29 You obviously don't know how to read, darling. I own two ferrets. I've never had a complaint about smell. There are drops I put in their water to make their pee not smell, and I clean their cages and litter boxes every day. Plus, at least where I live, every ferret you buy (at a pet store) is fixed and has had the scent glands removed. The only ferrets who haven't had those operations are ones from breeders. If the parents were sick of the smell, then the child wasn't cleaning the cage.
