“This is a photo of my family and its menagerie (ferret, snake, cat, dog) circa 1985. Less than a year later, we added a pig to the mix, and our childhood also included at various points a goat, raccoons, iguanas, chameleons, ponies, mice, rats, too many small lizards to count and at least one bird that was killed by a ferret.
The best parts of this picture are the expression of sheer misery on my then 14-year-old sister’s face, and the averted look of embarrassment worn by Missy, the matriarch Labrador.”

“This is a photo of me and my pet ferret around the time I was three. My aunt decided to surprise my parents and take me to the local PetSmart for a photoshoot. A toddler holding a parasol with a pet ferret, along with unfortunate 90’s attire, makes for one awkward photo.”
