Oh god I was going to tell you that your pictures are the most adorable thing I've ever seen and in the "descripction" it was "ask a ferret" gof I died. I love your blog.
Thanks so much!! ツ Means a lot! ♥
So I was looking through your blog and I absolutely love it and your ferret pics are the cutest ever :3 and I'm considering getting a ferret and was wandering if you could help give some advice or tell me a little about them? Like my friend told me they are messy when it comes to pooping.. Like really messy...? Thank you
First off, thank you ❤ I’m glad you like!
Second, its exciting you want to get a ferret! But I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone. Do your research! They can be the best thing that ever happened to you, or you could totally be too overwhelmed! They are more messy than a dog or cat, they need more attention, and they cost more when it comes to vet bills etc. But they fill your heart! You can find a lot of helpful “How To” guides online! Pet shops usually have good books on ferret care as well. But here’s a tad of basic info.
Food. This can be different with every ferret. Mine are currently on a dry food diet (I would love to be able to switch them over to raw one day), you can find different ferret food in pet stores depending on where you live. Or you can follow the raw food diet, there are a lot of guides to that online as well.
Housing. My ferrets live in a large ferret nation cage. They have lots of room to run around, and they come out to play! They should come out to play and roam around for 2-4 hours a day! Which is commitment, and harder than it sounds.
Litter training. Ferrets can be trained to use litter boxes! Like a cat. They aren’t always the best at remembering, and you will have accidents to clean up! They poop a lot! If you’re not comfortable with that, they might not be the best pet for you.
Bathing. Ferrets do smell, the smell doesn’t bother me, but it does bother some people. You can lessen the stank by changing the litter boxes, washing bedding cleaning up old food etc. But DONT bathe your ferret just because its stinky, you’ll wash away the natural oils, and in turn the glands will go into overdrive to make up for the loss!!
There are a lot of fun games and activities you can do with your ferret for bonding times! They all have their own personalities, likes and dislikes! They can learn tricks, you can take them on walks, some love cuddles, most are thieves, they all dance and play, some follow you around the house, while others wait for you to chase them! They are amazing little creatures.
If you want a ferret, try adopting from a rescue or going on craigslist etc. before going to pet shops. Good luck!
