Back when Rascal was an only ferret, Allie made him a sweater! (last winter?) Anyways, I got some new pics today, because I felt like it. There was no way Renegade was letting me put the sweater on him... the jerk

First, Harley models it




Rascals turn next!












Ren is teh evil

Hey! So for a while I’ve been considering getting a pair of ferrets, and now I’m in a place where I can financially and spatially care for them. I do have some questions though. Any responses would be appreciated:) I have no interest in forcing them in a cage, and I would like to have the free roam as much as they would like.
  1. How much space do they need? I have a dog (who is not kind to cats, so I would never have them interact) who stays downstairs during the day, so would the upstairs be okay to free roam? It has two medium size bedroom, a set of stairs, and a closet.
  2. If they’re free-roaming, how much time will I need to spend with them? I do go to school during the day, so would they be alright roaming around for 6-7 hours as long as they have a pair? I would be with them for the majority of the other time.
  3. If they free roam, do they need a cage? What types are best?
  4. Is raw or kibble better? Also how much (on average) does raw feeding cost per month?
  5. Where should I get my ferrets? I’d be more interested in getting them from an ethical breeder or a rescue.
  6. How do they do with gerbils? I’m pretty sure ferrets are prey animals so I wouldn’t have them interact, but would they be fine with a gerbil tank in their room?
Thank you so much!
