- How they found their home: I drove all the way down to Chicago to adopt Hocus and Pocus from a fellow online ferret forum member originally from Tennessee. At a year old, both ferrets had dark brown or black markings. Now at five, they are almost totally white and it’s nearly impossible to tell which one is which unless you have them side by side (Pocus is slightly bigger)! Hocus is my quick-witted troublemaker that never slows down, while Pocus is my laid-back boy who appreciates a few snuggles before being set down to play. They’re both such cheerful, enthusiastic creatures that it’s impossible to be in a bad mood around them.
