Ferrets have so many toys they love yet, they can get bored easily. Due to that, I try to surprise my Frida and Yoda every few months with one special toy I make for them (a little DIY project). A ferret is the type of animal who loves to interact with other animals and people. So, to make them happy and satisfied we have to stimulate their mind with games and toys. I love doing DIY projects so this...

I had no idea what I will do with them and then it hit me. I will make ferret fabric toys because ferrets can’t have enough toys! Ferrets love toys on strings so most of my designs are like that. Our little hunters love to chase things so you know that you can’t...

A story about Bailey, Kahlua and Mitchell by Tara

My girlfriend and I rescued 2 ferret girls in the summer of 2010, Bailey (chocolate color) and Kahlua (sable). They were about 1.5 years old, but still so full of energy! I had wanted ferrets my whole life, but I really didn’t know much about them. The lady from the rescue gave us information and told us a good cage and kibble and we were off!   Looking back, we probably didn’t play with the girls as much as we should...

Ferret body type

That is the official classification and to see what...

How to choose the best ferret cage?

Ferrets are big sleepers, but the time they are awake, they will make the most of it, trust me. 🙂 They may sleep 18-20 hours a day, but those 4-6 hours they jump, play, dig and do mischief. Because of that side of them, ferrets shouldn’t be left alone when they are awake and outside of the cage. For example, just the other day I’ve left my room for 10 minutes to make myself the coffee and when I...

Bathing ferrets: make an adventure for you and your ferrets

Bathing ferrets is a basic part of ferret’s hygiene, but there are some questions every ferret owner should ask before doing it. For example, how often to bathe a ferret?
