Hello everyone! I have 3 adorable ferrets that I have been looking after for the better part of 2 years now, but I keep running into issues keeping them out of places that arnt safe. For example pur laundry room is wode open to the ferrets, and the machinery/vents in there can get really hot. My attempts to keep them confined to safe areas only seem to hold put for awhile before the clever little guys find a way to break down or circumvent my impromptu barriers.
After doing some searching online for pet gates I didnt really see any that looked like they could keep my boys out of dangerous places. Id like to block off our whole hallway since most of the issues are back there, so id need a decently wide one to block it off that also has very small/no holes. For them to climb/slip through. Does anyone have anything they use and could recommend? Thank you!!!
Like aren't they though?
Hi! I have two ferrets, puppy and kitty. As the title says, I’m going somewhere for a week. The problem is, however, I cannot take them. And I don’t know what to do.
Any advice would be helpful :(
I’ve had ferrets for about a year and they have been on a dry kibble diet (Marshall). I plan on switching then to a raw diet when I get out of my parents house. In the meantime I just want to know if there’s any healthier options for them. Looking for mixes, kibble I can mix with water, or any minimal-effort diets.
I haven’t cut his nails yet and he’s 14-15 weeks old, when we play he scratches me and it makes me bleed, I tried holding him down like his mother would do to him (as seen on a yt video) but he DOES NOT like his feet being touched, he’s bitten my hand pretty hard as a sign of “fuck off” so I’m not sure what to do 😭
(I’ve also had an idea of a sand paper box but idk if it’s a decent idea incase it hurts his paws)
