Ferrets as a Religious Meme
For some reason, ferrets have been found in many religions across the world. Religious scholars have described it as an “inexplicable religious meme,” which is to say, they have no idea of the reason behind the prevalence of ferrets in mythology.
The aspects associated with ferrets are not consistent. To the humans of the South, ferrets are associated with sex and reproduction; to the dwarves, ferrets are associated with war and honor; the Kattil elves see ferrets as sources of wisdom and nobility, and even the elves of Se Pahale view ferrets as significant: they represent the dichotomy of madness and wisdom.
Despite the fact that these myths have no known source, ferrets are a powerful religious symbol, and are taken as pets by many devout worshipers.
