i hope you enjoy ( :
Step 1: Holding Ferrets
Handling ferrets is an important part about ferret care . The proper handling technique is to make a cradle with your arms. Most ferrets enjoy being pet while in you arms as shown bellow.
Step 2: Bathing Ferrets
Most people wonder if you should bath your pet ferret. The answer is yes. you should bath your ferret once every month. every month may sound gross... but they clean themselves a lot, like cats. (seen bellow) you only give them baths on there body never apply water or soap to the face. just to be safe.
Step 3: Ferrets Need Freedom Too!
it is cruel to keep a ferret locked up in its cage all day you should give them some time out of cage . It is optional to let the explore the house on there own... as seen below.
Step 4: Does Your Ferret Bite?
If your ferret bites it could be because...
they are hungry
they are not used to you yet
they need a chew toy because they are teething
or mabie because there scared
never beat your ferret only positive reinforcement!!!!!!
(bellow is my ferret upset about biting my friend)
Step 5: Play Time
play with your ferret daily and have a good life with them.
