Ferrets make superb pets, are very clean, and easy to look after. Like all captive animals, they deserve, and are entitled to be kept clean.
When returning a ferret to its cage, do make a conscious effort
to check the cage is secure, they are amazing escape artists.
Ferret hutches as a minimum size should be about 48’’ x 24” x 24” approximate dimensions, the larger the better. My ferrets are kept out of doors, the cages are under a cover, the front flaps are lowered at night and used as an awning during the day, to protect against sun or rain. I brush out the soiled saw dust daily and totally clean out the cage weekly. The water bottles are refilled daily and feeding dishes washed after every feeding visit. I let the ferret roam in an out building while the cage is cleaned.
The ferrets welfare is checked on each time I pass their hutches. They are handled at every opportunity. I feed them morning and evening with James Wellbeloved ferret complete, a special ferret biscuit food. Occasional treats of chicken, turkey dinner scraps or a drink of milk diluted with an equal portion of water is okay.
