Neil, Luna and Otis

My name is Neil, I’m 33 years old and live with my wife in Surrey, in the UK. I work in the software industry. When I was growing up, I never knew anyone that had a ferret, and very rarely saw them on the TV. I only found out about ferrets properly last year at a County Show in Surrey, when I visited the Ferret Rescue Surrey group. Unfortunately, we had to give up our cat, as we lived on...

Fantastic fortress for ferrets

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...

Make your own ferret toys

During my Friendly Ferret hammocks project I have tested enormous amount of fabrics and few fabrics I still have tucked into some box under the table. 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

It is easy to describe a ferret body: a long body, short legs, sharp teeth. They are the type of animal you will absolutely recognize if you see one walking down the street on a leash. If you want to recognize them by some official classification, you can do that by the type of fur. By America’s Ferret Asociation there are about 8 fur colors and about 7 fur patterns. That is the official classification and to see what...
