Are you looking for a fun pet that is a little outside of the norm? If so, then a ferret could be perfect for you. Ferrets are playful and energetic and require minimal care. If you choose to adopt a ferret, make sure there is an animal hospital near you that can provide care for your new furry friend. Not all veterinarians will treat ferrets.
Watch this video to get some insight into life with a ferret. Ferrets love to play and can be great additions to families with kids, but they shouldn’t be left alone with babies or very young children, as they may nip. Ferrets can catch some human illnesses, such as the flu, and they should be spayed or neutered as you would any other pet.
