Maybe two, I'm not sure. But I want to find out more information about them. Do they make good pets? Do they really smell THAT bad? Should you keep them in a cage while you're away? Mostly I just care about how bad they stink. I think they would make excellent pets but them being dirty in an apartment just won't work. Also how good are they about using the litter box. I don't want ferret droppings all over walls and carpet! Any information would be AWESOME!!!
they do make good pets, and yes they do stink. But they are fun to have, only thing you have to take care of is after 2 years of age they are at a really high risk for Insulinoma, or diabetes(spelling.
hi i have ferrets they make great pets i call them friends but yea they do smell but bad if you wash them and they do use litter trays very well um when your home they can be let out if you keep an eye on them as they like to chew on cords lol. so i would say yes go and get 2 as they get very bored if left alone with no one to play with and females have to be mated every yr if not desexed but yes they make great pets dont feed them onion as that will kill them and they should live 4 7 yrs. have fun if you get them!!!!!!!
If you buy spayed females the smell is hardly noticeable. You can also give them weekly baths. and they make cologne for ferrets too. Males smell-even neutered ones smell more musky than spayed females. They are great pets, they should be in a cage when you're away, but they also need free time when you're home too. Make sure you keep the cage clean and litter train them. When they're out make sure you have a few litter boxes. Ferrets are happier in pairs or a group.
Ferrets are great pets! A couple of things to keep in mind though, do your research though, before you get one. Depending on where you live, a ferret may not be legal (I live in California and used to live in Nevada, they were legal there. It broke my heart that I had to find them new homes, but they are happy and healthy little guys and I ended up doing the best thing for them). You also need to understand that ferrets are not a sit in their cage for you to look at pet, you need to provide an enviroment that they can run around in and be safe (i.e. no wires, no holes, no large animals). You also need to make sure that there are vets in the area who know what they are talking about when it comes to ferrets, because many of them know little more then the basics when it comes to the furry little guys. Also, there is a book out there called Ferrets for Dummies, I highly recommend it. It was fun to read and very informative. I hope that you do end up getting a couple of furrets, they are so much better when they come in pairs. Also, invest in some Applelime or something to that effect, ferret kits BITE. That's how they learn their limits (scruffing is the best way to handle it, and it's what their mother's do to disipline their young, it doesn't hurt them) and it's also how they play. Removing a young kit attached to your finger can be difficult, especially when it's excited, Applelime will be your best friend, they HATE the stuff!
