I got a six month old ferret that I called Addy (or Sweetie depending on the day) and she adjusted okay. She would bite or nip at our fingers in the beginning but she soon learned out of it and learned to poop in the corner.
The only problem was when i introduced her to my brothers….
See, Addy doesn’t like men for some reason. She was fine with me and my mother, she’d cuddle in our arms and lick our fingers but get her within five feet of any male and she’d go into destruction mode.
It starts in stages-
Stage 1 is when she’d tense up and stare
Stage 2 is when she’d start jumping around and rolling in circles
and Stage 3 is when she’d take off after them and try and bite them.
My dad, being forty, was so freaked when Addy took up after him! She jumped on him and started eating his fingers and he screamed!
She still doesn’t like men, but my brothers and dad won’t go anywhere near her.
