We Finally Got It! – Ferret Nation Ferret Cage

After three years with Rikki and Possum in a cage that I really disliked, I added two more pet ferrets, Loki and Luna. Because I took Loki and Luna from a friend who had to get rid ofNew Ferret Nation Cage them, I also got their ferret cage.

It is a Ferret Nation Cage. I love the size and roominess. It’s definitely big enough for four ferrets.

What I really like about it is the way I can hang so many ferret beds and hammocks in it. I have four beds, three hammocks, and a climbing rope in this Ferret Nation Cage. And there is still plenty of room for my fuzzies to play.

Also, because I have a certain ferret (whose name I won’t mention, but Possum would be a good guess) who likes to fill empty corners with not-so-nice presents, I also have five litter boxes in the cage – four on the very bottom of the cage and one on the top floor.

What I also like about the Ferret Nation cage is that I can close off one section with my ferrets confined there while I clean a section above or below the one closed off. Another plus is the huge doors that make it easy to work in the cage and to take out or put in fuzzies.

This cage has legs with castors. The extra height makes it easy to work in, and the castors make it easy to move around. And the tray below the cage compartments is handy for storing toys and cleaning stuff.

The one thing I don’t like about this ferret cage is the very shallow trays. I wish they were much deeper. I’m always finding litter and poop on my bedroom floor.

You know how ferrets like to back up to walls to use the bathroom. Well, Possum will find a way NOT to use the litter boxes and just back his little booty to the side of the cage and then poop over the edge of the tray and on the floor. And this, of course, means extra cleaning for me! I do wish the trays had been a little better designed.

But other than that, I really like our new Ferret Nation Cage. And Rikki and Possum really like it, too. They’re not stuck in that small cage anymore. They also like the two new playmates that came with their new cage.

Ferret Proofing Your Home – Keeping Your Pet Ferrets Safe

Okay, so you’ve purchased, adopted, or rescued your first pet ferret(s). You’ve also gathered and/or purchased all the ferret cage(s), supplies, accessories, and ferret toys you think you and your new fuzzy will need. But your job isn’t finished yet.

Ferrets are surprisingly agile and nimble, and they love to burrow and tunnel into everything – Panda Ferret in Laundry Basketyes, everything. They can flatten out and crawl through cracks and into spaces (e.g., under doors, between cushions, around barriers) that seem impossibly narrow. So, if your home isn’t ready, your ferret and your possessions could be at risk.

Here, then, are a few tips to help you prepare a safe haven for your fuzzy.

  • Crawl around your ferret’s space and try your best to get a ferret’s-eye view of your home. What attractive nuisances do you see? Look for holes in the walls and in furniture cushions – a ferret can squeeze into a remarkably small space – tall cabinets from which they could fall, easily opened and entered drawers, electrical cords and drapery pulls that look like tempting chew items, climbable trash cans, and accessible toxic plants. Plug up any holes and cracks you may find, install child-proof latches and outlet covers, and put away delicate knick-knacks – anything you can do to make the place ferret safe.
  • Keep trash cans out of your ferret’s room if at all possible. If you really do need a trash can in the ferret’s space, choose one that can be sealed tightly. Trash cans not only carry germ-laden materials, but they can trap an exploring ferret inside.
  • If you plan to allow your ferret free run of the house (and, of course, you would allow this only when you or a responsible person is present), keep the bathroom door closed. Seal off the bottom as well if your fuzzy could crawl under it. As a precaution, put away all cosmetics, medications, and toiletries. If possible, install a shower door rather than using a shower curtain. Keep the toilet lid down and/or install a child-proof latch.
  • Likewise, seal off your kitchen when your ferrets are loose because they could become trapped in or around appliances or get burned when exploring the stove. As a precaution, put all food items away, including condiments.
  • Do not allow your ferrets on or near upholstered furniture. They could chew on the stuffing and fabric, which could be a choking hazard (in addition to damaging an expensive piece of furniture). They could also become trapped in reclining-chair mechanisms.
  • Also, close off your laundry area. Don’t ever let your ferret take a ride in the laundry basket on your way to doing the wash. Too many ferrets have gone through the washer and dryer cycle, unbeknownst to their owners, with tragic results.
  • Keep all chemicals, fragile items, and valuables out of the reach of your ferrets at all times.

Once your ferret is home, get into the habit of watching out for her. Carefully inspect your couch or recliner before you sit down. Close all doors slowly, including refrigerator and cabinet doors. Check your washer, dryer, and laundry basket before you do a new load. Put away all hazardous chemicals. Avoid carrying large or awkward loads if there’s a chance of stumbling over your ferret.

(N.B.: Sometimes, veterinarians will allow you to quarantine your new ferret in their offices for a week or two. Not only is this an excellent way to be sure your ferret is healthy and disease free, but it also buys you some time to prepare your home.)

Essential Ferret Supplies and Some Ferret Resources

There’s a lot going on this week. So today’s post is going to be quickie.

Below you will find a list of the essential ferret supplies and a few links to some goodPet Ferret on Bath Tub resources for information about pet ferrets.

New owners are sometimes surprised by the number and variety of ferret supplies they need. Ferrets are not like goldfish or pet rocks. You will likely need to make a significant outlay to get everything you need to keep your ferret healthy and happy.

The essential ferret supplies you’ll need are:

  • Quality ferret cage. A wire-mesh cage with at least two square feet of floor space per ferret.
  • Pet carrier. Your ferret will need to see a veterinarian at least once a year and probably more often in that critical first year. You’ll need a sturdy pet carrier to transport your fuzzy.
  • Ferret bedding. Because ferrets love to burrow and to snuggle up when they sleep, they need cozy bedding. Whether it’s an old blanket or a swinging hammock or a hanging pirate-ship bed, comfort is the key here.
  • Ferret food. Whether it’s canned, dry, or even whole prey, the food you choose must be specifically intended for ferrets so that it meets their needs for a high-protein, high-fat, low-fiber diet.
  • Food and water containers. These should be heavy and durable to resist tipping. Many ferret owners prefer to use non-drip water bottles.
  • Litter box and non-clumping litter. Remember that ferrets love to dig, so choose a corner-fitting box with high sides (and be sure to secure it to the cage). Non-clumping – and dust-free – litter is essential to protect ferret health as the clumping variety can play havoc with the digestive system.
  • Hygiene items. Shampoo, brushes, combs, nail clippers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, ear washes, vitamins, and supplements are every bit as important for your ferret as they are for your own health.
  • Harness and leash. A ferret needs to be out of the cage for several hours each day. One way to keep your fuzzy busy is to take him for a walk in the great outdoors. Just make sure to use a ferret harness and NOT a collar to avoid any possibility of escape or choking.

One of the best ferret sites I have come across is All About Ferrets. There, you’ll find plenty of articles about ferret care, an active forum, and an interesting blog.

As for ferret books, the two I recommend (so far) are Ferrets for Dummies and Getting Started with Pet Ferrets (of course).

Kim Schilling’s Ferrets for Dummies has most of the basic information new and long-time ferret owners would need to make sure their pet ferrets are healthy and happy. A strength of this book is the wealth of ferret health information. Schilling does a good job detailing ferret health issues, as well as possible prevention and treatments. She also provides a lot of good advice on choosing a vet.

Getting Started with Pet Ferrets is our book on ferret adoption, ferret care, and ferret health. It is designed for fairly new ferret owners and attempts to fill in many of the blanks and weak spots you will find in other ferret books. It also contains a useful ferret-preparedness checklist – to help you make sure you home is ferret ready and ferret safe before you bring you first fuzzy home to live with you.

If you know of other good ferret resources (sites, books, videos), just leave a comment or send an email and let us know.

Traveling Ferrets

A site visitor switches houses every other weekend and wants to know if she can take her pet ferrets with her.

I don’t know if this person is house sitting every other weekend or whether there is some other reason why she changes houses. But if it was me, Rikki and Possum would definitely go along with me. It would be a hassle at first, of course. But if you think about it, it really wouldn’t be all that different from taking your human baby with you wherever you go.

So here’s what I would do.

First, I would find a large bag like a diaper bag. Then, I would round up the following items:

  • Extra food and water dishes
  • A large container for their food
  • Plenty of toys
  • A couple of hammocks
  • GoodBye Odor (which, to me, is almost as important as their food)
  • Vitamins
  • Various other items that may be needed, such as harnesses and leashes

I would also make sure I had a very large fuzzy-kid carrier to keep Rikki and Possum in while I am mobile. You certainly don’t want anything to happen to your fuzzies while you are driving or otherwise transporting them.

If you have your own vehicle or if someone picks you up in their car, I would suggest purchasing and using a collapsible ferret cage that you can take down and re-assemble in minutes. That way, you’ll have a cage you can easily pack up and transport and which, on arriving, you can keep your ferrets in while sleeping or while they are sleeping. This will keep your woozles safe when you are unable to give them your full attention.

You can find such ferret cages on the Amazon and Marshall sites, as well as in a Doctors Foster and Smith catalogue. Honestly, though, I don’t know much about these cages. The Folding Mansion looks as though it could serve the purpose, but I don’t like the fact that the shelves and ramps are made out of wire. If I got one of these, I would purchase covers for the wire shelves and ramps. If you don’t do this, your ferrets could get a foot caught in the grills or wire, which could lead to a broken leg or even something more serious.

Another possibility is an exercise pen. I would just make sure I had a mat or cover for it. Got to keep our little woozles safe!

So definitely take your babies with you! It may seem like you’re moving every time you go back and forth between houses, but your ferrets are worth the effort.

Our book on ferret care has a section packed with tips on traveling with ferrets.

Bottom of the Ferret Cage

Do I put anything on the bottom of my ferrets’ (Rikki’s and Possum’s) cage? The onlyFerret in Cage thing I have on the bottom of their ferret cage is their litter boxes.

My little fuzzies are not very clean house keepers. They scatter their food everywhere, and they play in their water bowl, splashing water everywhere.

Rikki and Possum also dig. They like to dig in their litter boxes right after I’ve cleaned them out and put in fresh litter.

And they like to move their furniture around. A lot! I have to make sure everything is tied down – especially their litter pans. If I don’t do this, I’ll find the litter boxes moved and even turned upside down, with ferret litter and my little fuzzies’ unmentionables (like their poop) scattered all over the bottom of their cage.

I also know that if I put newspaper or old rags or old clothes in the bottom of my fuzzy kids’ ferret cage, I would find these things in their beds and in their food and water dishes. I would also find these items on the floor of my bedroom. I know this would happen because I’ve tried it, and Rikki and Possum just stuffed these things through the bars of their cageGreat New Ferret Book and out onto my floor. You think that’s not possible? It absolutely is if the items are small enough for them to push through the spaces between the cage bars. Ferrets are no dummies!

So there’s the answer to the question “Do I put anything on the bottom of my pet ferrets’ cage?” No, I do not. I have a hard enough time keeping it clean as it is.

The Husband’s Top 5 Negative Rules for Owning Pet Ferrets

Guest Post by Michael Hearing

As you know my wife, Karen, has two pet ferrets (or woozles or little fuzzies or fuzzy kids, as she sometimes calls them). I like Rikki and Possum a lot too. I love to watch them play and cut up and do goofy things. But, still, there are drawbacks to wives’ owning pet ferrets – and most of them involve money. That’s why I’ve formulated “The Husband’s TAlbino Ferret Rikkiop 5 Negative Rules for Owning Pet Ferrets.”

Rule 1 – Never let your wife get the mail.
If your wife has pet ferrets, you should never allow her to check the mail box. Why? It’s simple really. Because on any given day – and you can never know for sure when it will happen – a pet-supply or ferret-supply catalogue could arrive. In fact, the Doctor’s Foster and Smith catalogue just came today.

Here’s how it usually goes. I’ve gone to town to run some errand, and my wife checks the mail while I’m gone. So I get home and find her seated at the kitchen table poring over the new catalogue, feverishly marking pages, panting after all the ferret toys and ferret accessories she wants to buy for Rikki and Possum. So, hoping to avoid the inevitable, I go to my desk and pretend to work. But it doesn’t work.

Karen comes skipping in and says, “Oh, Michael, look at this. Rikki would just love one of these.” Or: “Michael, look!” At this point the catalogue is thrust in front of my face. “Possum, really, really, really needs one of these.” And so it goes for awhile.

Eventually, I mutter, “All right, we’ll see. Maybe we’ll get those for Rikki and Possum later.” But I know that, in order to keep a pleasant atmosphere in the house, I’ll soon wind up buying the desired ferret supplies. Last week, it was $33.00 worth of ferret litter. Who knows what it’ll be now that she has the new Doctors Foster and Smith catalogue in her hands.

Fortunately for me, we live in a rural area, and our mail box is about a quarter of a mile from our house

Rule 2 – Never, ever let your wife surf the Internet.
This is related to Rule 1, but the problem becomes hugely magnified, much worse than the mail-box problem. When a ferret-loving wife goes on line, she has scores of ferret catalogues and thousands of ferret accessories available at her fingertips. Seeking out and lusting after new ferret toys for pet ferrets is often called “doing research” around here.

Lately, Karen has been looking at – and making me look at – this Ferret Nation cage. I’m thinking maybe if I buy this ferret cage for her she’ll be satisfied for some time because it’s a large ferret item.  I’m also hoping she’ll be too busy setting up the new cage and watching Rikki and Possum play in it to do much “research” for awhile. We’ll see, I guess.

Rule 3 – Never take your wife to a pet store.
This one should be obvious, but it simply can’t be overemphasized. If you do slip up and take your wife to the pet store, your only recourse is to be as uncommunicative possible and to act as grumpy as possible. The object is to get her angry so she’ll want to go home.

But the best policy is just to never take your wife there in the first place. Not only do pet stores sell ferret toys and ferret cages and ferret clothes and all kinds of other ferret accessories, but they also have . . . ferrets. Baby ferrets. Really cute ones. And this is about as big a danger to a husband’s checkbook as there is. I really do think it was seeing these baby ferrets at our local pet store that made Karen so “persuasive” about getting Rikki a playmate, Possum. At least, I was able to stretch it into a present to cover two gift-giving days. (To do this you need to emphasize both the initial cost AND the ongoing costs.)

Here’s a little trick I’ve learned. If you absolutely can’t avoid going to the pet store with your wife, take her to dinner first. That way she’ll be slightly hesitant about asking you to spend even more money for ferret supplies. Try it – it worked for me last time.

Rule 4 – Never make any promises about purchasing ferret accessories or ferret toys.
There’s a twofold reason for this rule. First wives never forget ANYTHING. Also, if you have a wife you WILL have arguments. And when you have those inevitable arguments, you’ll find out that the wife you’re arguing with has remembered – vividly in every agonizing detail – all the things you promised to do but didn’t – especially the ferret accessories you promised to buy and the ferret toys you promised to make. Count on it.

The simplest solution, of course, is never to make such promises. But that’s not always possible.

When you are deep into that novel you’ve been just dying to read and your wife begins talking about her pet ferrets and all the ferret goodies she wants to get, you really have only one option at that point. If you want to get back to that action-packed scene in your book and continue reading unmolested, the best way out is to promise to buy some of those ferret things she’s going on about. Just remember what you promised, and make sure to do what you promised before much time goes by.  

Rule 5 – Never, under any circumstance whatsoever, allow your wife to come anywhere near a camera.
Cameras and wives with cameras are in most instances good and necessary things. But that’s definitely not the case when ferrets are involved. Here’s why.

When you turn a wife with pet ferrets loose with a digital camera, you’ll never get any peace again. And that’s because she will be constantly taking ferret pictures and “asking” you to look at them. When I’m deep in thought on a project for work, just on the verge a problem whose solution has been eluding me for days, I often hear a call – well, a summons really – from the other room. “Michael. Michael! Come here! I want you to see something.” I don’t answer hoping it will blow over. But the summons comes again, a little louder this time. So I sigh, push away from my desk, and trudge into the other room. Then I sit down and look at about three hundred and seventy-three pictures . . . of ferrets playing and ferrets chasing and ferrets sleeping and ferrets eating and – well, you get the picture. As I said, no peace.

I don’t know about other wives, but my wife can’t keep track of any of her belongings. So when Karen’s pet ferrets are doing something very cute and she begins frantically searching for her camera, I suddenly lose my memory too. She often says, “Oh, Michael, look at Rikki and Possum. Isn’t that cute! I wish I had my camera. Have you seen my camera?” And of course my response is: “Nooo. I have no idea where it is.”

Of course, my delineation of these rules has been done (mostly) tongue in cheek. But there’s no doubt about: any way you cut it, pet ferrets make for an “interesting” household.

Two Pet-Ferret Matters – Climbing on the Cage and Covering the Ferret Cage

I’d like to discuss two matters concerning pet ferrets in this post.

The first is ferrets climbing on their cage. This behavior is perfectly normal for ferrets. Rikki and Possum are constantly climbing on their cage, especially Possum, my male panda ferret.

The cage I have for my two ferrets is a small- to medium-sized three-level cage. To get fromFerret Cage and Pet Ferrets the floor to the first level, my ferrets make use of a tube. Then, to get to the second level, they have to go up a spiral slide. And to get to the third level, they go up a ramp.

When I first got Possum, he refused to use the tube or the slide or the ramp. He would just climb up the side of the cage to get to each level. After a couple of months, he finally started using the tube, slide, and ramp. But even then, when the mood struck him, he would still – and still does – climb up the cage to get to the level he wanted.

Rikki (my older female albino ferret), on the other hand, climbs the cage only when she’s bored and wants out. But this is okay – it’s just the nature of ferrets. They love to climb.

Now, the other thing I’d like to talk about is covering your ferrets’ cage at night.

Covering the ferret cage is actually up to the human parents of the little fuzzies. You can choose whether or not you want to put a cover over your fuzzy babies’ cage at night.

I, personally, don’t cover my ferrets’ cage at night. I don’t have any real reason why I don’t do this – I just don’t.

I you do choose to cover the ferret cage in order to make the cage dark, hoping that your pet ferrets will sleep quietly through the night . . . just be aware that this is not going to happen.

Nope. If your fuzzies want to have a midnight romp, they will do it – whether their cage is covered or not.

That’s why I always try to get mine out their cage for several hours each day. Ferrets play extremely hard for a few hours, and then they sleep the rest of the time. The idea is that they will play and get tired so they’ll sleep longer at night. Sometimes it works – sometimes not.

Covering the ferret cage also depends on where you live and whether your ferrets live outside or inside. My fuzzies are inside pets, and my house is fairly warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So I don’t see a reason to cover up my ferrets’ cage at night.

Ferret BookTo cover or not to cover – it really is up to you.

Pet ferrets, being the ornery, independent little critters they are, will climb on their cages and will sometimes keep you awake at night, covered or not.

Cleaning a Ferret Cage with “Helpful” Ferrets

Guest Post by Michael Hearing

Last winter my wife was gone for about two weeks. We live in a fairly remote rural area, and she was snowed out. So it fell to me to take care of her two pet ferrets, Rikki and Possum. I found it a lot harder than she led me to believe.

Oh, giving them food and water and letting them out to play weren’t much trouble (well, thatFerrets in Pirate Ship Bed is, except for finding them and getting them back in the cage afterward). The headache-causing chore was cleaning litter boxes and cleaning the cage. And the biggest problem was that her ferrets are so very, um, “helpful.”

A cage-cleaning session would usually go something like this . . . 

  1. I get out the litter scoop and the plastic bags for the soiled litter and set them beside me on the floor.
  2. I next take the ferrets out of the cage and let them run loose.
  3. I reach for the scoop and bags – and find them gone. The ferrets – most often Rikki, Karen’s albino ferret – have fallen back into thievery and taken my ferret cage-cleaning tools.
  4. So, at this point, I stop my ineffectual efforts and retrieve the bag and scoop from under the bed.
  5. I begin scooping out the poop and clumped litter and then TRY to dump the scoop’s contents into the plastic bag – but most of it goes on the floor. Why? Because of the unwanted “help” I’m getting. Rikki and Possum – because they are ferrets and so incorrigibly curious and inquisitive (but maybe “nosey” is a better word) – keep putting their little ferret feet and ferret noses onto the scoop and into the bag’s mouth.
  6. So I get about a thimble full of litter into the bag and the rest on the carpet. And the next (unplanned) step in the cleaning process is vacuuming.
  7. Now, it’s time to clean the cage. So I get out my supplies – spray bottle containing cleaning solution, paper towels, and small trash can – and arrange them around me on the floor.
  8. I spray the floor of the cage with the cleaning solution and then reach for the paper towels. But guess what? There are no paper towels. So I dive back under the bed to retrieve them from where the “helpful” ferret thieves have stashed them.
  9. So, I’m finally able to give the cage a first wiping down and then deposit the dirty paper towels in the trash can.
  10. And then when I turn back to the cage, there sits Possum (who at the time was young and more than a little chubby) in the middle of the cage floor I need to clean. And he doesn’t want to move. I finally manage to get him so I can continue cleaning.
  11. I spray the cage again for a thorough cleaning, wipe it down, and reach for the trash can. But it’s not there. It has been turned over, and the contents scattered all over the floor.
  12. So I pick all that up and try again and again and – well, you get the picture.

And so it went, time after time, until my wife FINALLY was able to come home and rescue me.

Karen thinks the best solution for ferret-challenged people like me is to get the Ferret Nation cage. With it you can close off one section, thus protecting yourself from “helpful” ferrets, while you clean the other section. And this sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

Ferret Cages . . . Again

My little fuzzy kids are needing a bigger cage. I have perused catalogues, scoured the internet, and searched almost every pet store within a 70-mile radius. And I am still not completely satisfied with any of the cages I’ve seen.

My family and friends say my pet ferrets are spoiled – but I say they are just well loved. In any case, their cage is too small now for their several beds, their many toys, their litter boxes, their food and water dishes, and them. So I am shopping for a bigger cage. Decisions, decisions, decisions!

I have, however, narrowed down the search, and I am currently considering two cages – the Ferret Penthouse and the Ferret Nation cage. I like both and for different reasons. Each of these ferret cages has features that the other lacks.

The Ferret Penthouse measures 40.9 inches by 24.4 inches by 56.8 inches high and comesFerret Penthouse in at around $150. So it’s almost big enough, and the price is right. What I really like about this cage is the big pull-out bottom tray that will keep litter messes down and will allow easy cleaning.

But I don’t care for the Ferret Penthouse’s small doors. I’ve also read some less-than-great reviews. The main drawback seems to be that the cage is difficult to assemble. Apparently, some of the holes don’t line up, and you have to bend parts to get them to fit right.

The Midwest 142 Ferret Nation Double-Level Cage is 26 by 25 by 62.25 inches and is inFerret Nation Cage the mid-$200 range. It too is almost big enough and seems to be reasonably priced. This one has two features that I really like. You can add another level to make it even bigger, and the double doors are big, taking up the whole side of a section (or level). You also don’t need any tools for assembly.

The thing I don’t like about the Ferret Nation cage is that it has a very shallow bottom pan. And that means I would have even more litter mess on my bedroom floor than I already have. But I guess that’s why I have a vacuum cleaner.

So, unless I come across any better options, I’m thinking I will go with the Ferret Nation cage (as of right now, anyway) – because of its size possibilities and the big doors that will make it easy to put in and take out my ferrets and their food and water and toys and beds.

If I could combine the two cages, though, I would have the perfect ferret cage. If I could find a manufacturer to do that . . . I would be happy, and I would have two very happy fuzzy kids.

Dealing with Ferret Odor

Do you have smelly ferrets and a smelly ferret cage? I do too – but not as bad as I used to.

When I had only one ferret, Rikki, the smell wasn’t really all that bad. I cleaned out her litter box daily, and did a complete cage cleaning once a week. Now that I have two ferrets, I have to do a complete cage cleaning every day. (I’m still having problems getting Possum to use the litter box every time. But we’re making progress . . . I think.) But with two ferrets, even a daily cage cleaning wasn’t enough to keep the ferret odor down.

There is product I use that has helped a lot with the odor – GoodBye Odor from Marshall. I use itGoodBye Odor for Ferrets and recommend it, and it’s also veterinarian recommended.

You wouldn’t believe the difference GoodBye Odor makes in the smell of your ferret and the odor of your ferret’s cage and litter box. Now, you won’t, of course, get rid of the smell altogether, but you won’t gag anymore when you have to clean out the cage and litter box.

It even tones down the musky smell of your ferret. Even if de-scented, your ferret will still have that musky smell, which comes from the natural oil in the ferret’s skin. In any case, I can really tell the difference when I run out and forget to buy more.

I buy the 32 oz. bottle, and it lasts about three months. I buy it from Amazon because, even with shipping charges, it’s much cheaper than purchasing it from the local pet store. I actually buy most of my ferret products (most of which are Marshall products) from Amazon.

So, to control ferret odor and litter-box and cage smells, I highly recommend GoodBye Odor for Ferrets.
