Back in 1935 when 7-year-old Harold Samuels got Fuffles, few if any people kept ferrets as pets. Fewer even knew what a ferret was, including Harold, who when his father surprised him with Fuffles thought he was a weasel. Despite the mistake, Harold was immediately captivated by the small, cute, cuddly creature. He couldn't take his eyes off of him or put him down. Quickly, Fuffles came to occupy a big place in Harold's life. With the joys and fun came the responsibilities. And what Harold was soon to learn, sometimes to his distress and horror, was how much trouble, excitement and mischief a playful, curious ferret can cause.
Ronald Schneider has always been something of a dreamer. After graduating from college, Ron mentioned to a friend he wished he were talented enough to write novels. His friend's reply was, "Schneider, writing might be socially acceptable, but it's not very remunerative." And so rather than writing, he embarked on a legal career in New York City. In the middle of his legal career Ron got the acting bug, but it was impossible to pursue an acting career while practicing law, and when it finally dawned on Ron that his vision of one day walking down the red carpet in Hollywood to pick up his Oscar for best actor was a pipe dream, he replaced the monologues for a keyboard, and in his spare time he has written four screenplays: Crosswired, in the Woody Allen vein, about the misfortunes that befall a lawyer in his quest to find the right woman; Oy Vay/Oh My Papa, about a father's plans to have a sex change operation and the effect it has on his dysfunctional family; Ockham's Razor, about the development of a room temperature superconductor, Chinese industrial espionage, a flux bomb, murder and ricin poisoning; and Felix the Ferret, about a ferret that is stolen for medical research by two Rastapharians who trip over themselves trying to recapture him after he escapes. Ron thought that Felix the Ferret would make a very funny movie for the whole family, but he could not interest anyone in Hollywood in the project. In an effort to generate some buzz about it, Ron decided to write the book adaptation of Felix the Ferret, but when it came time to getting started, he realized it would be better if he first created and wrote the backstory to Felix the Ferret, and Fuffles the Ferret is the first part of that backstory.
