Friendly Ferret Family

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...

Couchen, Lili & Bagheera – Two ferrets and a cat

Can you tell us a thing or two about yourself?  I’m a 27 years old female human currently living in North America with my partner.  When did you first found out about ferrets? I was originally all about cats. I found out about ferrets through photos from an Internet friend. She had a cat and a ferret who were getting along very well and they were so cute together. When and how did you get your ferrets?  My partner was as thrilled as I...

From Hannah, Ruby, Tink and Lunar x

Hi, well my name is Hannah, I’m from the not so sunny North Wales UK. I’m 21 years old and I’m a dancer, training to be a dance teacher and sports masseuse. I first found out about ferrets when I saw them on the film The Golden Compass and just like Anja I decided I had to have them! So I did my research, I visited a local breeder in 2014 and took home my little Ruby. She’s 2 years...

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...

It’s small, it’s adorable…. What is it?

I wanted to get another ferret for a while now and this week my dream came true. A few days ago I went on a road trip to expand my Friendly Ferret family. It was a long trip and that really didn’t bother me because at the end of that trip I’ll have another ferret! I won’t tell you a thing about it, for now. 🙂 The bad thing about this road trip is that it was raining in the morning...

Another ferret named Frida

I found the Friendly Ferret blog shortly after my ferret Frida passed away.  I sent Anja an email to let her know about my Frida and she was kind enough to ask if I wanted to write a story about my Frida for her blog. My Frida died on September 4.  She was almost nine years old. She was a sable ferret like Anja’sFrida.  We got her from a breeder when she was about eight weeks old and it was...

My Friendly Ferret Frida

I got my ferret over a year ago, but the research lasted for about two years. The problem in Croatia is that people don’t know anything about ferrets, there aren’t any books or any kind of guides for ferretproofing your home and learning about ferrets.  Everything I know now I’ve learnt from forums, other blogs or books I found in english. My little furrball is one year old and her name is Frida. She is sable, meaning she has brown...
