Our cute sleepyheads spend most of their time dreaming about their awesome life so I can say that sleeping is the most important part of ferret’s life. Is there any better place to sleep than some comfy hammock? I don’t think so.
Hammocks are an awesome solution for you too, as a ferret owner. Every ferret has played in the cage in litter box at least once and then, a whole cage is a mess. To avoid replacing blankets on the floor couple of times daily, replace them with hammocks. Hammocks are designed to hang in the air, above the bottom of the cage and they can stay clean that way. Also, you can fit them on every floor in the cage, which means more hammocks! More hammocks mean more places to sleep for your ferret! 🙂
3 REASONS WHY YOU AND YOUR FERRET NEED HAMMOCKS
1. REASON – Ferrets love to sleep. A lot.
I am sure that your ferret sleeps more than 18 hours a day. Would you like to sleep 18 hours a day on a hard floor or in a cozy hammock? 😀
2. REASON – Ferrets love to sleep in clean environment
Bottom of the cage can get messy easily, you know what I am talking about. With a hammock, it is less messy and easier to clean because the hammock hangs in the air. Washing hammock, on the other side, is really simple. Unhook – place in the washing machine once or twice a month.
3. REASON – Hammocks are healthy for your ferret
A good sleep is important to you? Yes, and to your ferret also. A good sleep recharges the battery, relaxes the entire body and improves overall health. For good sleep, you and your ferret need a cozy bed or a hammock. 🙂
WHY I MADE MY OWN FERRET HAMMOCKS?
The moment I started learning about ferrets 6 years ago, I have encountered one problem and that is the lack of ferret products. It was impossible to find a hammock made for ferrets. A few years later the situation was a little better, but hammocks were still unavailable. I had to search almost every pet shop to find some and when I have found it, they didn’t last long. I am sure you know what I am talking about. Due to that, I took things into my own hands and last year I started designing my own hammocks, from the ferret owner point of view.
COULDN’T FIND THEM IN PETSHOPS
NOT SUITABLE FOR FERRETS
POOR QUALITY & LOW DURABILITY
I made 9 hammocks with 3 different designs, all made especially for ferret owners and ferrets. To make them extra soft I have added textile wadding in the hammock and to make them look fabulous in every situation I’ve put soft plastic in them.
It was a long trip, but it was worth it. The process of making the hammock was 6 months long and I made hammocks in cooperation with a professional seamstress who has found the best way to solve problems common to hammocks in pet shops. Every week I was at seamstress to talk about hammocks. When one of the first hammocks was made I looked at it, tried to put a hand in it and it was OK, but when I asked my brother to do the same I noticed that the opening was too small so I had to make it bigger. Now, closed hammocks have openings big enough to fit one hand but narrow enough not to allow the light in. Every hammock I have in my webshop is tested by my two ferrets, Frida and Yoda. Your opinion about my hammocks matters to me because I want to make them even better and that is something you can help me with.
HOW I MADE MY HAMMOCKS ESPECIALLY FOR FERRETS?
Frida and Yoda picked the materials inside and I picked the materials outside with special design I made. I have chosen the best one out of about 30 different materials. It is durable material decorated with 3 special designs for ferrets and soft material inside of the hammock. Some hammocks have textile wadding between those 2 materials for more cozy feeling. I’ve put a soft plastic in hammocks to keep them in the right shape when your ferret is inside sleeping, so they will look awesome in every situation. A textile wadding is on top of the plastic to make your ferret comfortable while sleeping. Designed by Friendly Ferret, sewed by professional costume designer, they are all what one ferret needs in a hammock.
Every hammock has adjustable straps so you can choose the height of the hammocks yourself. There are also two different lengths of straps because I am aware that not every cage is identical. Most hammocks can be placed on the ground and in the air, so if your ferret wants to sleep out of the cage in a hammock, you can do that in under a minute. Just remove adjustable straps and put the hammock on the floor. 🙂 Due to that option, I made straps with two hooks so you can easily remove them if not needed. Metal hooks can rotate and are easy to handle, which I think is very important.
HAMMOCKS MADE FOR FERRETS
Since there are hammocks for ferrets/guinea pigs/ hamsters all in one, I wanted to make hammocks, especially for ferrets, because they are nothing like other small animals. There is a difference in behavior because ferrets love to ”dig” in hammocks. The main problem with low-quality hammocks is that they will be destroyed in under a month. Due to that, every hammock was tested by Frida and Yoda, because who would test them better than ferrets? Hammocks are special in its own way, even Frida and Yoda have their favorites. I have designed hammocks for one ferret and hammocks for more ferrets, so there is something for every ferret owner. Also, closed hammocks have openings big enough for your hand so you can pet your ferret while it is sleeping.
With my 3 designs, you can choose hammocks especially for your female or male ferret because I made them in 3 colors: red, blue and black. Don’t worry they are all very soft due to textile wadding so your ferret will fall asleep extra fast. 🙂
OUTSIDE / INSIDE
OUTSIDE / INSIDE
OUTSIDE / INSIDE
I tried to make the optimal size for every hammock. It is big enough to fit one big ferret but small enough for one smaller ferret to feel comfortable and protected inside.
Hammocks which can stay on the ground and in the air have soft plastic and textile wadding in the bottom so they can stay in perfect shape even while your ferret is sleeping inside.
Even though it is a good quality and durable material it is still just a fabric. To keep your ferret safe check your hammock inside and outside on weekly basis. Ferrets are energetic pets and they know how to use their claws. Make sure that the hammock doesn’t have a hole in it where it can crawl and injure itself.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FRIENDLY FERRET HAMMOCKS
Now, let’s talk about washing the hammocks. Since it is printed fabric, the best way to wash them is at low temperature with like colors. Do not iron or bleach so the hammock can last longer. Do not tumble dry because the plastic in hammocks will bend, you can dry them on air. I recommend to use dust roller every week and wash cold every month in the washing machine. Do not use the dryer, dry it on air.
Hammocks which can stay on the ground and in the air are a good solution if your ferret loves to sleep on the floor of your room. My Yoda usually sleeps in the cage, but Frida loves to sleep out of the cage, mostly on the couch or on beanbags. Due to that, I have one hammock out on the floor and few more in the cage.
Every hammock comes with a suitable number of straps from 1 to 4, depending on a shape of the hammock. You can fix them to the side of the cage or to the roof, the variety is big. I’ve written instructions for the best placing of every hammock which you can see on their product page.
