Mine isn't that nice but for one ferret she seems to like it. I know that we should have two or more but she has been alone for 4-6 years (we don't know her age) and we can't afford a second ferret nor do I think she would enjoy it. She gets along great with our cat and they play just like she would with another ferret. It is so cute because the cat is so gentle

Ohh I'm sorry, I should have specified ;(. That actually isn't my cage. My current cage is kind of "blocked" by all the hanging hammocks and sleep cubes so it'd be really hard to see inside hahaha. That's another person's cage who I thought set it up really well . Sorry for the confusion. Mine is kind of similiar but the cage is a little smaller and I don't have such a crazy taste in bedding fabric .

For the most part, my ferrets do nothing but sleep in their cage because I check on them quite often to see if they're awake and ready to roam.

Oh btw christine, that's just fine. Ferrets are actually animals which can do just fine alone. Their wild cousin, the European polecat, is a solitary animal that only comes out to meet others for mating. A few people say otherwise...but they get along with cats, especially(as your pics have shown) very well. Humans too, so they don't get lonely =].

i think you get used to the "odor" i never really noticed an odor when i got tinker though. i don't know if the age they were descented matters or not, tinker is a marshall ferret, and they do their descenting at around 7 weeks. but if you keep up on the litter, and the bedding, and wash their "bed" often i really don't notice a smell.

Marshall is the most popular breeder of ferrets in America. They're based in NY -- and almost everywhere you find ferrets...the petstore probably got them from Marshall. They just mass produce ferrets.

Now, Marshall breederies aren't angels either -- they're also known to sell ferrets for animal experimentation =[. The distinctive mark of a Marshall's ferret is two little tattooed marks on their ear. One signifies desexing, and one descenting.

There is another up and coming breeder out there called Path Valley. I heard Petco is sooon going to switch from Marshall's ferrets to Path Valley ferrets...but we'll see how that goes.

There aren't really individual breeds of ferrets...just different colors. All are the same in body type...though some colors can carry with them defective genes. There's one "sub-breed" of ferrets called angora ferrets...but they're just ferrets with scruffy hair.



Okay I'm done
