More About Ferrets
City Ferret Meetups
often get emails asking where or how to meet other ferret owners
in NYC. We've heard of a way that might be of interest to some of
you. The Meetup.com website provides a way for people with
similar interests (in this case "ferrets") to get together informally
once a month in cities all over the world.
do ferret meetups work?
- Each month,
several possible locations for the meetup are provided which may include
local restaurants, pet stores, even bowling alleys.
- YOU get
to vote for your choice of location.
one week before the scheduled meetup, an email is sent confirming the
date, time, and address of the location that received the most votes.
- You RSVP
whether or not you can attend. (* This is a
very important step! Even if you voted for a location you
must also RSVP once the location has been chosen. If fewer than
5 people RSVP the meetup will be canceled for that month.)
- You show
up at the chosen location at the time and date specified, so do the
other ferret lovers, (usually, someone will have a sign or other way
for you to find each other) and you all meet and talk about whatever
you'd like. Since the meetups generally take place at public places
of business, ferrets should be left at home.
all there is to it!
the New York City ferret meetups run by NYCFerrets.Com?
No. The NYC
ferret meet-ups are not run or sponsored by NYCFerrets.Com nor
are they legalization related. We're not affiliated with them at all.
These meetups take place all over world once a month and we thought some
of you might be interested in taking advantage of New York City's ferret
meetups as an opportunity to meet other local ferret lovers in NYC.
I have to pay anything?
Meetup.com has recently added some additional features you can access
for a fee, their main service (helping groups of people with similar
interests sign up for, vote on, and schedule a time and place to meet)
is still 100% free!
does Meetup.com ask for my email address? Am I going to get spammed?
We have yet
to hear of anyone who has received any spam at any email address
used to register with them. So far, the only emails Meetup.com sends are:
- An email
telling you it's time to vote for that month's meetup location.
- An email
telling you which location received the most votes and asking you to
confirm whether or not you'll be able to attend (Voting on a location
is NOT an RSVP. You have to RSVP as well once a location is chosen!)
- An email
to let you know if the meetup is canceled (If not enough people RSVPd
to use a valid email address when registering with Meetup.com otherwise
they won't be able to inform you of the meetup location that's been chosen
and they won't be able to let you know if it's canceled at the last minute.
can I learn more and sign up to go to New York City's next ferret meetup?
you don't have to be a ferret owner to attend. You could be a former ferret
owner, a future ferret owner, or just a person who likes ferrets!
