A few people wrote something similar in response to my question-- it makes
some sense, but a ferret/polecat doesn't sleep through all the night hours,
does it? If only because of that short digestion cycle. I know my free
range ferrets have always been pretty active at dusk and dawn, as well as
conducting occasional nighttime forays into things that would get them into
trouble if I were awake ;) Maybe I'm being too nitpicky-- I just always look
for the shades of grey when I see black and white, I guess.
