i have a young ferret, not even a year old, but shes very hyper!! she wont sit still and if you can even get her to be cuddly for 2 minutes youre very lucky. do they often settle down as they get older?
I find that my males tend to be easier to cuddle with then my females, females tend to be a little more antsy! All ferrets relax when they’re tired, so try giving your ferret a larger amount of playtime during the day, and when she’s all tuckered out maybe she will relax a little. The more time you spend with your ferret the better they bond with you! My oldest ferret is 2.5 years, and shes still as hyper as ever, however; when shes tired/sleeping sometimes I can get a snuggle in. Its easiest to cuddle your ferret when they’re already sleeping, and a lot of the time, they will wake up, and not care they’re not in their bed, and stay with you! They don’t usually voluntarily come and sit with you like dogs, so enjoy those moments when they happen! There is no guarantee that your ferret will settle down anytime soon, but don’t wait to enjoy her, they’re at their best around this age!
