I’m from the mustelid family, the same as a polecat.

I’m a carnivore so I have sharp teeth. Don’t be put off by my odour, I’m not dirty it’s just the oils from my skin. I’m very playful and clumsy but don’t be fooled, I’m an efficient hunter. When I play with my ferret friends we play very rough and bite each other.
