  • wow, this is truly amazing. I never thought it would be found. Did the “3 feet wide” guy return it?

  • I hope it really is the same ferret and not a decoy, like on that show when the kid spray paints a white mark on a similar looking dogs tail to trick the owner into thinking that their dog has been found. Also, my captcha is saying “missing rascal”. Oh the irony!

  • This is a (ferretless) Christina who used to post more frequently on this board, but I’ve been away. From one Christina to another, congratulations! I’m glad Abu was found.

  • Was it the construction guy? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • Felicitations, PoP and other neighborhood blogs.

    Like Molly the dog and the Newby’s last July, a good reunion of lost pet brought home thanks to this medium.

  • Yay! Awesome! Glad there’s a happy ending after all.

  • Someone stole Guido.

  • that’s freakin awesome. I know I would be devastated if my little buddy got lost..

  • What would The Dude say?

  • Great, I am so happy the true owner — the “homeless woman” — ironed out her living situation and got her beloved ferret back. Or did it go to the person who lost it before the homeless woman found him?

  • Such great news! I’m so happy you got him back.

  • I wonder if Abu’s last name is Ghraib.

  • @Thought:
    I believe the dude would react in the following manner:

    And let’s also not forget–let’s not forget, Dude–that keeping wildlife, an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city–that isn’t legal either.

    What’re you, a fucking park ranger now?

    No, I’m–

    Who gives a shit about the fucking marmot!

  • I am so happy for you! Thanks for the uplifting news, it’s always a good day when a pet finds its way back home.

    So where are the promised details?

  • I thought it was illegal to own a ferret in DC.

    • Yep…ferrets are mammals, not rodents, and are are prohibited in DC:

      § 8-1808. Prohibited conduct.

      (h)(1) Except as provided in this subsection, no person shall import into the District, possess, display, offer for sale, trade, barter, exchange, or adoption, or give as a household pet any living member of the animal kingdom including those born or raised in captivity, except the following: domestic dogs (excluding hybrids with wolves, coyotes, or jackals), domestic cats (excluding hybrids with ocelots or margays), domesticated rodents and rabbits, captive-bred species of common cage birds, nonpoisonous snakes, fish, and turtles, traditionally kept in the home for pleasure rather than for commercial purposes, and racing pigeons (when kept in compliance with permit requirements).

  • Shame at the Prince of Petworth collective condoning such criminal activity as harboring an illegal mammal. Guido was in better loving LEGAL care on the outskirts of Baltimore.

    Yet you gripe about crime constantly.

  • yeah… why no details? was there no drama after all?
