I wish we had ferret food in the pet shops here..
You can try putting blankets in the corners and have a litterbox in every room :) After that it's just like training a cat..tho they'll rarely get 100% house trained, but.. I have to clean up maybe one accident from Carni per day, and that's because he's still testing me xD

I do know that if you can't find ferret food, a HIGH quality cat food is actually better then most ferret foods. Ferrets also need yearly vaccinations, like dogs
Yeah, so I've heard (about the cat food) I got Vitalin Ferret online and after what I've heard that's a good one.
Yep, he's vacciated against ou comon ferret diseases :P Fortunatly we don't have rabies here so at least that's no worry..
I'll also get an insurance on him, just havn't made the call yet.
