"Eh, regarding giving ferrets a meat-only diet. I'm not educated enough on the matter to really tell you how to feed a ferret in the specifics, but that probably wouldn't be quite as close to a natural diet as you might think. For one thing, most wild animals have pretty catholic tastes in dining, and I doubt a natural ferret would be an entirely strict meat-eater. Also, even if it were, there's usually partially-digested vegetable matter in a prey animal's intestines. This is one of the main reasons that the first thing a wild lioness does is to eat the innards of its prey. Cats need this plant matter to stay healthy, so any cat owners who keep their pets indoors full-time should take care to get an indoor forumula. In any event, I just want to point out that one should be careful about purely carnivorous diets. If you are feeding whole carcasses, it might thrived exactly because it isnt on a truly pure flesh-and-bone diet but is absorbing partially-digested plant material. Also, I think that anyone who can't get carcasses or doesn't want to put up with the mess should consult with a carefully-selected veterinarian. Personally, I'd just use highly-recommended cooked-and-processed foods and whatever fell to the kitchen floor. Carcasses are too apt to contain colonies of harmful micro-organisms for my liking."
