Having a pet ferret is a rewarding challenge. They need baths, litter cleaning and they need play time. As a ferret owner there are few things you need to understand.
Ferrets are small, tiny cute members of the weasel family and it has been domesticated for more than centuries. They are highly spirited, aggressive and energetic animals. They require as much care as a dog or cat needs. Ferrets on average live for 6-13 years maximum and even during that time regular vaccinations and check ups are required to keep them in shape and in good health.
Ferrets come in all different colors
People who are planning to own ferrets should aim at buying a pair of ferrets so they have someone to socialize with. Ferrets are very small and even before you plan to bring them inside your homes you should ensure that your house is ferret proof meaning that there are no gaps where the ferrets can go and get stuck. Handlin ferrets require proper ferret care and consideration. In homes where there are small children, ferrets should be avoided in that area. Children might try to hold ferrets in their hands and while doing that they might injure the ferrets. Manual Dexterity is very essential in order to handle ferrets effectively. Moreover, children also might get afraid by the nips and teeth of the ferrets. The children might hit the ferret in retaliation.

This is a common misconception – ferrets are “mustelids”. Ferrets are the domesticated members of the Order Carnivora, Family Mustelidae and Genus Mustela. Unlike rodents, ferrets are obligate carnivores. Some of their close relatives are weasels, stoats, otters and badgers. The mustelid family are actually the largest in the order Carnivora!
