Default Do ferrets actually smell bad?

Since Calis and Littlefoot died I missed having other animals. Previously I've had 5 rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters and now I have the cats and Casey but would love another animal. I would ideally LOVE to have a ferret and have been trying to talk to my parents into it. They wont budge on the matter though as everyone they talk to says ferrets smell VERY badly, I was just wondering if that was the case? They seem like such a prefect pet!

they have a smell. but dont stink.
if you give them a bath they will stink! it washes off thier natural oils and causes them to make three times more..
and the oils are what is stinky

Ok cool! It's not me that will have a problem I mean Casey does have a doggy smell about her compared to some dogs and I don't mind it at all, its just my parents. I'll be sure to tell them about the cologne.

and remind them that they are highly litter box trainable, where you can dump the box everyday. so there will not be a pee or poop smell since you can just go dump the box when its poopy

maybe you should go look up some info and ferret smell. and get them to read this thread.

ferrets at petstores stink! because they are usually in an enclosure with ten more, and not litter box trained, and the enclosure has poor ventalation! of course they stink at a petstore.

how do your parents know they stink? most people are constantly bathing them, causing them to stink worse!
