I was sitting in my living room with my doors and windows open earlier today. I saw an odd shadow coming down my hallway. I get up just as a ferret walks into my living room! After I calmed down I managed to get the friendly little feller into my cat crate.
None of my neighbors are missing him. The sheriffs office hasn't received a report of him missing. I'm seriously wondering if this thing is a pet or wild animal. No clue what to do with him. He reeks. I don't know if I should bathe him, what to feed it...etc. I'm clueless. So I guess I'll be googling ferrets this evening.
So, have you had any weird visitors lately and or do you have a suggestion as to what I should do with him?
Oh, and a high protein cat food is fine for him.
Do you mind if I share a couple of pics of the critters we found in and by our condo when we were on vacation a couple of weeks ago?

He could probably use a bath, most ferrets won't mind it. You can get special shampoo but you can also use baby shampoo. here is a link http://www.wikihow.com/Bathe-a-Ferret
I'm sure the little thing is hungry as well. You can feed them high quality cat/kitten food if needed, they also make ferret food.
They can bite(but if he let you come up to him without any problem this is less likely). He sounds like he is pretty friendly.
We just moved into a new complex and the neighborhood cats try to come in our house. Besides that nothing strange lately, I've had a duck wander in my yard before(pet).
