Ferrets are wonderful animals that have a very misplaced reputation,anyone who has kept ferrets will know how wrong this image is, they make fantastic pets and ,is kept correctly, do not smell and can be extremely loving.
from a promise 4 years ago- "if you do well in your gcse exams you can have a ferret"- my daughter purchased one polecat Jill ferret nearly ayear ago,
we started off reading how to look after ferrets,we talked to people at gamefairs and at resuce centers .
because we were going to keep the ferret indoors - the rescue center allowed us to have one ferret - so we werent over faced with the thought of having to much to look after- having not had ferrets before .
but it is clear that ferrets are social creatures- after going to Eccleshall show acouple of weeks ago, and again talking to the lady at the ferret rescue stand,
she introduced us to an albino hob- he was a foundling, she had had him in her care for 7months,
she said that he was a relaxed ferret ,was litter trained and got on well with other ferrets.
so last weekend we travelled to Burton-upon-Trent ferret rescue,
introduced our polecat ferret to the albino ferret and they got on really well-no fighting,
from that meeting we now have 2 pet ferrets.
through this blog i hope to spread the word that ferrets make good pets.
