Start with thinking about what needs to be done each and every day, and then on a weekly basis when you get a ferret. Secondly, research for animal shelters in your area. Next thing is to create a budget for the pet, plan a talk with your parent and think about what you're going to say before you go talk to them. Lastly, strike the conversation and show them how important the pet is and how you have prepared for it. Read more from http://www.ehow.com/how_4751687_convince-mom-let-pet.html#ixzz1unNFpigq.

Do like a ton of good stuff around the house everyday and a ton of stuff for your pig. Then at the end of the day, tell your parents how responsible you were. Do that everyday till they ge used to it then ask for the fetters as a reward for your great behavior.

You need to let them see one in action! I've rescued ferrets for years, we're down to one now! Go to YouTube & show them funny ferret videos! Also, you do all the work, the cage, food, water etc..
Do not let the ferret and pig get together! Ferrets kill guinea pigs! It'll be a nasty fight! Ferrets need at least 4 hours a day out of cage! Ours is a free roamer, he just lives free in the house with us! No cage but you can't do that with a pig around!
They're wonderful pets!

Awww. . . I love Guinea pigs. they are kinda mean though. . . I've had mine for nearly two years and they still hate me. Tell your parents that you think your pig would have a better life with someone else but that you want a ferret so you wont feel so lonely without your pig. Don't tell them you hate your pig either or they might not believe you!

A ferret will bite and not like you as well, plus they stink worse than anything, even with their glands removed. They are not good pets, your wasting your time, get a dog or cat instead.

Your wrong! I babysat 1 for a week and he was the sweetest I'd ever seen. But that's not all! I've met a million other ferrets that we're very sweet! And besides I have an animal shelter that has them and you can play with it for a little bit to see how nice!

Well I have met a lot as well and I sorry but I disagree with you. And what's wrong with a dog or a cat?
