In this Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 photo, one of the ferret pets of Pat Wright whips out its tongue while hanging out in its well adorned cage, in La Mesa, Calif. Large cages are expensive, but on the other hand, ferrets don�t require as much medical or dental care as cats or dogs. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
