      Default New Ferret

      We picked this little girl up last night so our male would have a friend to play with. They've been going crazy with each other all day. Gotta love the furry animals too!

      They're so cute! I really want to have ferrets but I don't have space right now. Maybe when I move into a new place and don't have so many roommates. I've never owned them before and every time I mention to someone that I want one the first thing they comment on is the smell. How do you guys manage the "smell" issue? Is it as bad as people say or is it simply a matter of keeping the cages clean?

      They definitely have that "ferret stink" to them, but it's not as bad as people make it out to be. Every time I get that comment it is usually from someone who has had no experience with them. The only reason they know what a ferret is is because they've been to a pet store that had 6 of them crammed in a tiny display cage, and that has a huge effect on the smell. I think the biggest part of this is keeping their cage clean. They poop a LOT. Daily litter box cleanings are a must, and you have to wash their hammocks every now and then. We also bathe ours about once a week which seems to help. Plus they're kept in a room with a lot of ventilation which helps air everything out. You honestly wouldn't even know we had them unless you saw them. From my experience pet rats stink wayyy worse than ferrets. They really are awesome pets.

      That's kind of what I figured. I think my boyfriend is worried that I'm going to have a zoo once I have my own place. He's not wrong, lol.

      SWEET! I love ferrets! I always had them when I was a kid, even if they are illegal in Cali.

      Default New Ferret

      I used to have 4 ferrets. All females. 1 albino, 1 black eyed Lucy, and 2 pandas. They were the best little weasels ever. Now I have a boxer puppy and she's pretty much a larger ferret. War dance and everything. Lol.

      Scully


      Bailey


      Xana


      And the boxer Olive

      Yeah, that's never gonna happen. Little buggers are into everything.
