If you have decided to keep a ferret you should realize that ferrets need special care and treatment. So think whether you are ready to pay much attention to your very special pet. If you are ready then probably some of these tips would be really helpful.
Despite the fact ferrets do like to sleep (they sleep at least 18 hours a day) they are very active. I would even say they are energetic pets. It means that they need one’s attention. If you are busy and have no time to look after your pet then you should think if you really need a ferret. Ferrets are playful. So your ferret wouldn’t like to stay in a cage all day long. It would be terrible for it.
You should remember that ferrets are smelly. If you can’t stand musky smell then it would be quite difficult for you to keep a ferret. Some people tend to think that frequent bathing would change the situation. Well, it would definitely change for the worse.
You should realize that to keep a ferret is pretty expensive. It means that you have to buy special food for your pet and meet a veterinarian regularly. And it takes much.
Moreover you have to brush, clean and even clip the nails of your ferret regularly. If you have much money to keep a ferret do you really have much time to look after it? Some owners are ready to play at least four hours a day with their ferrets. I’m not trying to discourage you. I try to explain you that getting a ferret can be a challenge for you. If you are away on holiday is there anybody who looks after your pet? It is obvious that you just can’t leave your ferret. Take it into account.
