(Moultrie, Ga, U.S.)
Okay, so me and my hubby will be getting two ferrets 7 months from now. We just moved to a new state starting over from scratch so we will be giving 7 months of preparation to ferret proof the house. Buying new ferret safe furniture included and a saving stash for any ferret medical emergency that may arise. We are fully aware of all the responsibilities and patience that comes with owning chaotic ferrets and are well prepared for that.
But reading all of these stories have made me obsessed with all the possible dead and lost ferret scenarios. There are possible dead ferrets everywhere. From drowned in toilet to stove electrocution. Suffocation in closet. Laundried. Unknowingly sat on. I’m even go in as far as having a door to my kitchen built and kept closed to keep ferret from kitchen. But I can’t stop imagining all possible and impossible ferret deaths. Even under fridge suffocated ferret.
I will be having the ferret playroom devoid of all furniture. Nothing but one room with a whole bunch of ferret toys and me in there at all times. I absolutely do not trust ferrets out of the safe room. Am I going too far? Should I relax a little? I am an at home wife. No kids, so ferret will be my only occupation other than the house. And the house is new so there are no holes whatsoever. The laundry is in a separate building so I do not have to worry about laundry vents.
So, am I going too far? I would like your response please, and any advice if possible. This will be my first time with ferrets. I did my research, would like some advice, please.
