Cheweasel type toys
I recently got my ferrets some of the Marshall version Cheweasel toys. For those who don't know, they're the chew toys that are edible so the ferrets can gnaw away without you worrying about them getting blockages. Anyway, Vin and Starkes absolutely -love- them. Which is good, because they're the two I really got them for since they're going through the teething/biting phase and I figured it might help if they had something they could really chew on. The only problem is that the chew toys get really sticky and keep leaving this residue in the fur around their mouths and all over their feet. It mats the fur around their mouth and on top of their paws as well as making -everything- stick to their feet, from litter to fuzz. I'm sure this can't be the most comfortable thing for them. Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone found a solution to this? Personally, I haven't been able to come up with anything, but I figured it was worth a shot.
