Erika Matulich began her involvement with ferrets at the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas in 1978. As a volunteer, she brought ferrets to area schools, nursing homes, and community events. She began expanding her knowledge of ferrets not only through personal ferret ownership, but also volunteering her time (and her ferrets' time) at University Veterinary Teaching Hospitals.


In the 1990s, Erika served as the President of the Ferret Lovers' Club of Texas and edited a monthly newsletter called Ferret Footnotes. She was active in ferret legalization activities, and assisted in effort to legalize ferrets in Plano, Garland, and Fort Worth, Texas. She also assisted with ferret rescue and shelter activities, and trained animal control officers all over North Texas in ferret issues. Erika has spoken at numerous humane societies animal shelters to help educate employers and volunteers about the unique needs of ferrets.


Erika also has written (and continues to write) numerous articles for Fancy Publications in Ferrets magazine, Ferrets USA, Critters USA, and Pet Product News. She was named the Contributing Ferret Editor to Pets.com during its entire existence and wrote over 100 ferret articles and items for the site until its closure at the end of 2000.
