Everything You Need to Know About Ferrets
Totally Ferret is your go-to resource for all things related to ferrets! Explore this page, as well as the other pages on our site, to get more helpful information about ferrets, their needs, health, diet and care.
Smart and inquisitive, ferrets love to play with toys, people, other ferrets and other pets alike! While ferrets typically climb, burrow, chew and explore, they can also:
- Be trained to learn a variety of tricks or behaviors (including how to use a litter box)
- Have a number of other individual characteristics that are unique to their personalities.
In the wild, ferrets tend to burrow in tunnels dug by other animals (like prairie dogs). To create a welcoming ferret habitat at home, place small, enclosed boxes within well-ventilated, multi-level ferret cages.
Other helpful tips for creating the ideal ferret habitat at home include to:
- Keep ferrets in areas that are between 50˚ and 80˚ F (their ideal temperature range)
- Let ferrets out of cages so they play – in a ferret-proof area of your home – for at least 4 hours every day
- Give them toys and soft things they can chew on to keep them occupied and entertained.
A nutritious, well-balanced diet can go a long way to keeping a ferret active, happy and health! Find out more about the best diets for ferrets, based on age, activity levels and other important factors.
The proper diet, activity levels, maintenance and medical care are essential to promoting optimal health in ferrets – and to minimizing their risk of developing common health problems (like adrenal cancer and distemper, for instance).
