ROSEMONT, Ill. â€" Emilie Wilson's menagerie includes 15 ferrets, two dogs and four cats, including a hefty gray feline named Tonie Stewart who rides in style inside a pet stroller during family outings.

And despite the recession-like economy, the suburban Chicago woman has no plans to scale back pet presents anytime soon.
