Q: Will my ferret get along with my pet female guinea pig, Carrey?
Although gorgeous, there are a few things worth considering before getting ferrets as pets.
Haha...this is pretty accurate... I love my little Slinkers...the only time you can pet her is when shes asleep... because when shes awake you can barely catch her... shes the fastest ferret alive
Ferrets must be trained to use a litterbox. You do this by putting a corner box in your ferret’s cage and then gradually allowing your furry friend more freedom as it continues to use the box. Be prepared to keep a small amount of dirty litter in the box for a while to help your pet understand what that box is for. You can discourage your ferret from using other corners of his or her enclosure by covering them with bedding or food. Verbal praise, petting, and treats can help the learning process move along more smoothly.

How Did Ferrets Come To Be Pets?
Fortunately, pet ferrets do not suffer from these unpleasant odors when they have been spayed or neutered and the scent glands removed. Any lingering odor can be taken care of with regular baths. Most ferrets sold in the United States have already been descented.Ferrets are not pets that can be caged all the time like gerbils, hamsters and mice. Although they can spend a lot of time in a cage, they need the freedom to run, jump, and explore your home everyday. A ferret that is kept exclusively in a cage may become a very unhealthy pet. Ferrets As Pets Ferrets make good pets and are happy living alone or with another ferret. They are social animals and often like meeting new people. They are fun, playful, and active. Cage Your pet will need a cage at least 36″ x 24″ x 24″. This is the minimum size necessary but you should get as big a cage as possible. Ferrets are active and while in the cage you want your pet to have lots of room to play. There are many different types of ferret cages available that offer lots of room to move around.What do I need? Once you have decided to get an adorable ferret you should have everything he needs before bringing him into your home. Having everything ready makes the transition as stress free as possible. The care sheet below lists all the items needed for your new pet.Me and my partner (Doug) saw our first ferrets in a shop window. I could not take my eyes of them; they were unlike anything I had ever seen before. I was well and truly under the ferret spell. After a very quick discussion with the pet shop lady I convinced Doug that this was the animal for us and we should bring it home that very day.
