    I've had small critters as pets for most of my life. I started with mice at age 12. I've had gerbils, hamsters, and rats throughout my teens. I got a flying squirrel named Scalisti (hence my user name) when I was 18, and he passed away when he was 14 (I was 31 and very sad). Throughout my 20's...

    We've got two ferrets who live roaming free in our living room, one is a healthy weight but the other is really chubby. When we first got him he was the runt of a family of rabbiting ferrets so he was severely underweight and malnourished. We've always free-fed our other ferret and he's never...

    I had to euthanize my ferret today. He was 9 years old. My sister adopted him from her neglectful friend about 5 1/2 years ago. I will call his last owner "V". His name used to be Silverado (does not fit him. lol). V got him as a baby from a newspaper ad (that is what she told us) along with...

    Hi, I've never owned a ferret, but I've always thought about it. Do they bite and can you potty train them to only poop in a designated spot? How friendly are they, and do they require a lot of attention or are they more independent? And what are the main differences in between owning a pet...

    I find my ferret sneezing a lot lately, what could be wrong? There are no kind of shavings in cage but he is not in the cage most of the time running around the house and goes behind the stove most of the time. (stove is never on when fink is loose and about)
  10. General Animal Discussion
    So I had my male (Trooper) for about 5 months. He was never really noisey, very quiet guy, never made the sounds all the websites tell me they make. Never thought anything of it. But he does hiss, 24/7. Or at least it sounds like a hiss. It is very low and sounds like hes pushing all the air...

    my sister was just telling me she feeds her ferret peanut better and fruit and milk cuz her vet said it was a good way to fatten them up where they had been abused and were very skinny. that doesnt sound good for them at all is the vet a total crack head?
  13. Ferret Discussion
    Ok so I want a ferret, been wanting one for a while. The only places I know of near me that has any is Petdepot and Petco. Is getting one from one of those a good idea? I'm just not sure of a good place to get one. I do plan on getting another one if I can get this first one, whenever I can get one.
