A Business Of Ferrets

One my parents used to have ferrets. I'm told they are a bit smelly as they are one of those musky creatures. They are extremely cute though.

My little sisters had two of them, they smelled horrible even though they were descente. I would only get them if you have a lot of time to care for them because they need TONS of attention or they get depressed. But it sounds like you have good experience with animals though. They really are a lot of fun to play with kinda like kittens, they liked to run around playing with toys all day. We got tons of those tubes that all connect together, they looooved running through those. They get in to everything and can squeeze in to the most tiny places they used to drag our stuff under places we couldn't reach.

Ive never had one. But i love all animals. I've always wanted a ferret too. Happy (but my parents would never let me)

You have to play with them a lot. Get a huge cage, with hanging blankets. They can smell, but if u clean their cage every other day, and give them baths, i dont think it will be that bad. And i think theyre always better in pairs so they wont get lonely. Theyre very social.
You can look online to find out what they eat & what cages & stuff to get.

Oh i looked online for all the basic care info and jaz, everythigns the same, just meticulious information. Its just always nice to hear stuff from personal experience. Sometimes its even better because a lot of animal care info can be biased or neglect to metion unsightly heath problems that could effect the pet , just to make it more appealing for somebody to purchase it. And yes, at the pet store their cages stink and half to be cleaned everyday ( But thats probably cause theres 5 of them :p)
