Thank you for the warm welcome. That is what I thought about the ferretone too. I also like giving it to them on my hand and getting them to lick it off. I also found it really useful for nail trimming. When I got these guys their nails were quite long, and I put so ferretone on their tummy and they didn't even notice the nail trimming!!

Let me know what you think. I think if I continue to give ferretone and add the 8 in 1 they would have a complete diet.
I gave my ferret a new litter box they had the largest triangle shape litter box. Well I will explain, I have my ferrets temporarily in the largest hagen ferret cage I have another cage for them but I have to get ramps! I also wanted to start them out on a one level to make sure potty habits were good. Well i felt the litter box was taking up to much room in their cage so I got a large dish pan one of the squares ones and cut down a side so they could get into it easily. Well they don't seem to be taking to the new box very well! They move it and one decided they should poop in the corner behind it!! lol....So they have waged litterbox wars and I intend to win this war!! lol!
Well thanks guys. I am looking forward to talking to you and reading all your stories too!
