Ferrets!

Do you have one?

Do you have any other pets? Do they get along?

What are some of the basics I need to know before getting one?

How much on average per month do you spend for all it's needs?

My daughter has been asking for one, and her birthday is coming up. I want to hear from people, not just websites and books, what it takes to care for one.

I don't know A THING about them. I don't even know what kind of food they eat. LOL

(Sorry to post and run, but my kids are about to get off school. I'll be back later. )

Please bump if you will. Thanks!


It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

 We have one! We got him back in December when he was 11weeks old. We were in a pet store and he kept crawling up on my husband's arm and wanted to lay on his arm he did not want to be put back down, he tugged on my hubby's heartstrings and needless to say over $300 later we took him home that night! We paid $169 for him, $99 for his cage that was on sale, then food and snacks! He loves to run around our living room and play. We have a pit bull that he literally crawls all over and plays with! He loves to take a warm bath and is litter box trained! here is a couple of pics of our Ollie!

We have one. We've had her for about 4 yrs now. She cost $100 and her cage was $75 on sale. Ferrets need to run around and mine is super hyper when she's not in her cage. She's super sweet and our 3 year old has grown up w/ her. She steals anything rubbery and stashes them in her hiding spots. I've caught her running through the house with a pacifier in her mouth on her way to her stash. She likes Cheerios as a snack. She eats Meow Mix cat food. The vet said it's fine to give her those. She likes running around outside in the summer when we're outside. We have a dryer hose for her to run through and she sleeps in a pillow case.

I don't have one and never have. My sister had one at her house. The house stunk really bad. It was decented and everything. I don't know if she just didnt clean up after it or what.
