(nsw central coast)
I have been a ferret owner for a total of 2 days now and before I got her, I hadn’t even seen one before.
Its such a surreal creature and thanks to this site, I’m well on my way to doing the right thing I hope. I thought they ate rabbit food — haha silly me! — but she loves chicken necks.
She only likes me and hisses and bites everyone else and she goes to the toilet in one corner of her cage but not the litter tray but I’m putting her on the tray as soon as she wakes up =) Hopefully everything goes well.
I was wondering if anyone could give me a few tips on what to do — do they chew power cords like rabbits??, should i get her a friend??, and how come they don’t like to just cuddle up and sleep with you?
I’m worried if I leave her alone in my room when I’m not there she’s either going to urinate everywhere or chew everything. What could I do to ??
PS I love this site — you are a lifesaver, great job. But so far so good I suppose!
