It screws into the end of a curtain rod and came off of a luxury cruise ship that sank back in 1810.[8|]

It is illegal to own ferrets in California and always has been as far as I know. Because of the fear that they may escape and start colonies that will negatively effect the native wildlife.. Some people smuggle them in but they get confiscated and destroyed if found..:(

Hey Julie,
The ship either totally disintegrated (or it was really small) because this was apparently all that was left of it to find.

Dreaming,
Are there like ferret police? An undercover operation to expose the illicit barter of ferrets? Do they have ferret vice? (Nice idea for a TV series there).
Seriously, ferrets. Their ashes would fit in a tiny little snuff jar (or spitoon).

Quote from an early episode,

"You dirty rat. I'll get you for that."
"I'm a ferret damn it. Don't you forget it."
