"Fantastic pet. Intelligent, loving, cute, a challenge. I love mine to bits. Make sure you know what you are letting yourself in for before you get them, really do the research. I had wanted ferrets for years. I didnt commit because I realised that they would be a big responsibility and needed the same (or more) commitment than owning a dog. I mean, lets face it some people think they smell and are vicious ( I like their smell and mine arent vicious ). So getting someone to look after them while on holiday could be an issue. This year I decided to get two sisters from a rescue after swatting up on ferret facts for about 18 months in forums on the net. Father Christmas came early and got me a huge cage. I have had the girls for just over 2 months. They are lovely. They are cute, crazy sweet and have taken over our lives. My husband, who wasnt keen on the idea of ferrets, has gone completely soft in the head about them. My grown up sons think they are great. I have no problems with holiday care because sons will have them, or a ferret owning friend, or the rescue will board them. I miss them when I am at work and when I am at home I keep talking to them and stroking them through the bars. When I let them out to play they go completely nuts. I change their toys regularly to keep them stimulated. Their favourite toy is a 21" diameter washing bowl with long grain rice in to a depth of about 3" deep, They dig in it, wrestle on it and scuba through it. It makes a mess, -I dont care, LOL. I have a hand held rechargeable vacuum cleaner and clean it up when I think necessary. I limit them to one room which is ferret proofed. I plan to ferret proof the rest of the house to broaden their horizons. I got the book "Ferrets for Dummies" which is packed with info. I also find there is tons of info on the net. One thing I have found though is that ferret owners are passionate about their ferrets and can also passionately disagree about their care. It is a case of hunting around for what info seems correct, not necessarily accepting the first thing you read. BTW the subject of flea treatments seems to be a controversial one judging by what I have read on various message boards. Luckily my girls havent got them."
