My ferret prefers trix, and it always leads to the "silly wiisel (his name was wii after the game console, which turned into wiisel), trix are for kids." Then a tail grab out of the bag, but it leaves his breath smelling so good. I know they aren't good for him, even before reading this, but I'm not exactly the queen of eating what's good for me, so why should he? I do insist he eats high quality cat food if that makes up for anything, and he also likes pizza, garlic, and oreos, and who am I to say no? I'm probably going to be a horrible mother one day.
Anyways, mine is an illegal alien, living in Cali, anyone else with any experience harboring one of these? All I hear is how they are illegal, when no one even knows anything about them or why, I've even been threatened by someone claiming they could get a 5,000 dollar reward if they reported me! I researched this and couldn't find any evidence to back it up, but I want to educate people. Also, do you guys let yours take over the house like I do? He pretty much has a cage, for emergencies, but is almost never locked in it.
As for getting along with other animals they do fine in my experience. My JRT loves wrestling with him and they constantly are going at it. The cat ignores him or hisses when he tries to make nice. I would just watch and make sure they play nice. I even had a JRT puppy who was good with one, they would sleep, play, eat together, it was so cute. Ferrets are fiesty, hardy animals, much less delicate that a chihuahua.
Love my wiisel to much to deny him, so I suppose he will still eat what he's not supposed to, but scold away, I deserve it!

I am a former owner of a crazy ferret, I mean this guy was nutz, plus he was a nasty bitter and would poop everywhere despite our best efforts to train him.

He has sense been rehomed with people who love and who love and adore ferrets.

I thought he was cute as a button when he wasn't being a monster, and I love that little noise they make when they get all excited.

Question: What's kibble?

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
