FERRETS AS PETS
Thinking about a pet ferret? From the experts: 21 essential points that need to be considered before you buy a ferret.
While there’s nothing more rewarding than watching your feisty ferret friends run, explore, and play around in your home — they can’t roam free all the time!
Investing in the best ferret cage gives your fluffy funsters a safe haven to relax, sleep, and exercise — and somewhere for you to confidently leave them while you’re away from home.
Most importantly, their ideal cage will be generously roomy. Not just to provide sufficient movement space, but also to accommodate their toys, platforms, tunnels, hammocks, and litter trays. And naturally, the more of these furry friends you have — the larger their home needs to be.
Also, since your ferrets are the ultimate Houdinis of the pet world, their cage housing needs to be secure — including a lock or catch they cannot open or pick! And, while mesh sides are essential for air flow, ensure the wires aren’t too far apart — as this can lead to escapees or possible injury as they attempt to squeeze through!
Nom, nom, nom.
Yep, that’s the sound of your silly snugglebugs secretly chomping on your dinner leftovers or other forbidden fruits. And soon, you’ll be left to sort out their resultant constipation, diarrhea, stomach upsets, and weird-looking poops.
With crazily delicate digestive systems, you have to be strict and choosy over your ferret’s fodder. Despite their cutesy, cuddly, butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-their-mouth faces — ferrets are naturally voracious carnivores. They need their meat macros.
