Urrrrmmm....you can do, or get your girlies a yearly jill jab, or breed them. the male brings the female out of season, if she isn't brought out of season eventually she could die. My girlie is due her kits soon.
And they are not dead, ferrets spend about 20 hours a day sleeping!!! :lol:
lucky them x
I have always been curious about ferrets I admit... they do make me nervous, but the only ferret I have handled is a not very socialised 10 week old that one of my friends had many, many years ago.
I adore the polecat marked ones!!
And ferrets have contraception?? Wow! I didn't know that! hehee I seriously need to come to your house mousemad, and meet all your animals! hehee I bet your ferrets are lovely with all the attention they must get!
They are cool and very tame. They even play with the cats!!
Most people don't understand ferret behaviour, from bieng a small kit to around at least 6 months old they bite HARD
You have to be very patient and actually teach your ferret not to. They have very thick skin so when they play together they bite, but it doesn't hurt a ferret. They don't understand us humans are whimps :lol:
But if you take the time to form a good relationship with your ferret, they are as friendly as can be. Mine give me kisses and all sorts x
Sound silly but tell them no! Also by scruffing them coz if you were a ferret you would bite them back! so you kinda gotta behave like a ferret!!! You just hae to bite the bullet and handle them LOTS!
Last year when ours had babies we put them in this huge play pen in the kitchen so that everytime someone went in there hey could socialise with them. By the time the ferrets were ready to go to new homes i had done most of the hard work already, and had the scars to prove it :lol:
Young ferrets are like furry pirhanna!!
They do like to sleep in he oddest places.....my hubbys prized jammo speakers, the washing basket...but never on top where you can see them you understand, where would be the fun in that? They also hide food everywhere, not their own food usually the dog or cats!
But all in all they are soo funny when they play
AW ferrets are so cute! I wish I had one but my house is full, and my father doesn't like them lol. I went to a pet store with good breeders, and got to hold all the babies...none of them bite and are all very good. I got a pic of one of the older ones that crawled down my shirt:
he was such a cutie...he had a black body and a white head lol.
