I have one ferret. He's a guy and his name is Baby because of course he's still little. I've only had him for a little, but i got attached to him fast, and I love him.

I have two ferrets, one is 6 1/2 years old and has the glandular disease and the other is approx. 4 years old. They bring so much joy to my life with their silly behavior. They were my sons ferrets and I just couldn't take watching them be caged and ignored so I took them home with me and they have free run of my home. They go to the bathroom on potty pads and are doing great. I am all for keeping these little guys lose but please know all the dangers when having a loose ferret. It is just my husband and myself so we always look down when opening the refrigerator, outside door on anything that they can get into. Also I've been told that recliners are a huge danger as well as the washer and dryer. They depend on us to keep them safe as well as feed them well.

I also wanted to say that I chose not to do the surgery to remvoe the cancer on the older one but chose Lupron injections instead. He has been doing great for about a year now. I would love to hear from people that chose the surgery just to compare notes. My ferrets fur has grown back and he appears to be healthy even though I know he still has the disease.

I have to confess I too have had several other pets, but have fallen hard for these furry little beasts (ferrets). I have two Sophia and Maggie, each of them have their own unique personalities. Maggie is such a little lady barely taking the treat from your hands and Sophia could rip your finger off she gets so anxious. I love them both dearly and they get along so great with each other. We had another ferret Sydney, he got very sick after about 6 months. I nursed him back to somewhat of a healthy stage twice but ultimately he just was too weak to fight off whatever he had. I had him put down, what a horrible day that was. I cried for weeks and even as I write this the tears are flowing again. He was by far the best ferret ever! Anyway long story short my ferrets LOVE LOVE LOVE playing in the water, I put their favorite toys in a big bowl and watch the fun! It is just way too funny, guaranteed to brighten your day!

Hooray! An intro site to ferrets that suggests the proper diet for a ferret is feeding them WHOLE prey! I have a 1 year old ferret that's been eating RMB (raw meaty bones) and whole prey since she was 6 weeks old. This consists of : rats, mice, crickets, chicks, nightcrawlers, spiders and super worms, as well as cornish game hen, chicken necks, chicken feet, turkey necks, gizzards, hearts, livers, occassional ox tails and lamb bones! She is very healthy and we go out for walks at least 6 miles each week!

I recently purchased two sibling ferrets, one male, and one female. I have never given them raw meat, and keep them on their Marshal diet at this time. They both love to play with my sons, and love to clown around the house prancing, bouncing, bounding, and slinking their way into our hearts each day. Litter training is going to be a challenge with them, but easier to deal with if done with forethought on my part. Clipping their claws is the hardest part so far, but they both love a good hot soak in the tub. Creatures of comfort them!

I work my two ferrets, Nic and Bill, together with my terrier, Tess. They make a great team and become excited when they see their transport box. Ferrets really do need meat in their diet and also feather, fur, and bone. If you cannot hunt for them, fresh roadkill is a good substitute(not a joke). You will see the benefits in a smooth glossy coat, and always a bonus, firmer stools.
