That's cool. :0 German's actually one of the languages I want to learn. Are you fluent?
The languages that I really want to learn though, are French (which I'm taking at school), Spanish, perfect my Tagalog, Korean (for the heck of it), and Japanese (also for the heck of it).
I'd like to learn, like, all the languages though, if that were possible. xD

You're welcome ^^
Same here! Because there was just so much emotion in it, and the triangle between Seiya, Usagi, and Mamoru was just so well-done!
...That, and it was just awesome period ^^

Thanks for contacting me! I appreciate it. It's nice that you're considering a raw diet- it's so much better for them.

As I don't own any mammalian pets, I can't give you specific advice. But I can give you some tips that I've picked up on:

Have you tried offering the meat prepared in a different way? Sliced into tiny pieces/big chunks? Perhaps a bit of meat that's ground up?
Have you tried offering a variety of different kinds (aka some organs, some meaty bone) to see what she might prefer? Don't worry too much about percentages at this point.
Have you tried cooking the meat to various degrees?
How do you offer her kibble- free-grazing or at specific times? Hopefully at specific times, as grazing isn't really good for most animals. Ferrets have a high metabolism and will need frequent meals throughout the day- a site I read said up to ten. Anyway- assuming you offer food at specific mealtimes, I would gradually start replacing the kibble meals with raw meat meals. Start with just replacing one- if she doesn't eat it, she doesn't eat it, and has to wait until the next mealtime to get her kibble.
Have you tried mixing the proportions of kibble/meat? Such a 75 percent kibble, 25 percent meat, then working your way up to a higher meat percentage?
Have you tried mixing or coating the meat with something that she might like? Some sort of (ferret-healthy) gravy or sauce?
Ever tried making a mash of moistened kibble and ground raw meat? Mashes are AWESOME for getting animals (any animal) to try new foods. The ingredients can't be separated, can't be easily visually told apart, the smell is all the same. Start with a mash that is high in kibble with low meat, then work your way up to more meat in it.

Definitely start storing the kibble with the raw food, so it doesn't smell so foreign- this will help her get used to the smell of meat.

Once you have her eating just a little bit of meat, of any kind, you can usually get them to explore other kinds as well. So don't worry too much about her being really selective at first of what she eats.
Thanks for the comment! Hope this helps!
