Ferrets and other pets

Having ferrets as pets is a special situation all on its own, but keeping ferrets and other pets, now that is something else. Now, you don’t have to worry ferrets can get along with other pets, just make sure it is the right kind of pet. There are numerous animals people have as pets and if you already have a pet and you are thinking about getting a ferret, think hard. Not every animal is good around ferret and ferrets...

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...

Things you need for a ferret

Ferrets are wonderful bundles of joy that can bring happiness to every home. But, just like every other pet, a good idea is to get everything you need for a ferret before getting the ferret itself.  If you buy everything before the ferret comes, you will avoid: ”Now, what??” question. Ferrets are mischievous animals and you can’t just leave them in the room while you go shopping for a cage, food or hammocks. Ferrets can’t be left alone unsupervised...

Why is your ferret biting and how to make it stop?

One of the things you must prepare yourself if you want to get a ferret is that ferrets bite. No, that doesn’t mean they will hurt you on purpose or that they are wild animals, it means that biting means more to them than to other animals. Ferrets bite because biting is the way they communicate. Puppies do that too but in a very different way. When puppy wants to play with you, he will pull or bite your...

Ferretastick toy for ferrets

Ferrets get bored so easily! That is why you have to stimulate their mind every day with lots of toys and games! We had packing peanuts for a long time, but they aren’t that good anymore. They are boring and we have to find something else to dig in. In last few days Yoda was digging in litterbox which is something I am trying to avoid. 😀 Who would want their ferret to dig in the litterbox? 😀 I had...

Toys, games and more

Do you remember my post about playing games with Frida? I must admit we don’t play those games anymore, she is getting lazy (and so am I). There are tons of other games we can play even though we are both lazy. Ferrets aren’t typical pets we all know that. Their playtime is different from, example, dogs. I also have a dog,  a Westie named Tila and she is still a puppy. She is 6 months old and she is...

Stay at home ferret

I must say my year has started excellent! The only thing that I am sorry about is that I haven’t written anything  since Christmas, but I must say I was really busy. Like I sad, the year has started great, with many interesting adventures in both private and business life. For new year I was in Prague, capital of Czech Republic, without my little Frida, but it was only a couple of days. I must add, Prague is beautiful! But, we...

Adventure with water bowls

No matter what you have to do, if you do it with a ferret, it will become an adventure. The same thing is with one very simple part of life. A water bowl. I have to share my little adventure with finding the right water bowl for my little Frida because she loves to trip over bowls. Actually almost every ferret loves to do that.  😆 First try came with a cage. It is actually attached to the cage and...
