I think that this site is really good and you get a lot of good information from it. It has really helped me with my ferret.

My roommate and I just got our ferret today, and we already love her so much!!! We haven't named her yet, but that is coming soon. Your site is really cool and a good thing for ferret owners to look at.

Your website is great!! We have two brothers. Casey and Finnigan. It's amazing how different they are in so many ways. I can't tell you enough how much joy we get out of these two!! We have a dog and a cat as well. It's quite a sight when they all romp around together. Thanks again for your great job!

This is a very helpful and fun site. My ferrets enjoyed the photos. Their names are Banditt "Free Wheelin'" Dylan (boy, 8 1/2 weeks), and River Vanilla Sky (girl, 8 1/2 weeks). Banditt is a dark sable and River is a black eyed white silver mitt and mask! They are my babies and I love them! Thank you

I just wanted to thank you so much for the information that you provided about traveling long distance with your ferret. It was very helpful and I was glad to see that the name Ace was on the name list because that is the name of our ferret.
Thanks so much.

We just welcomed Rocco into our home 5 days ago. He is an adorable 3 mth old male. We bought him for our kids but my husband and I are hogging him. By the time the kids get home from school Rocco is zonked!

I just got my first ferret today. Her coat is like a raccoons (like most ferrets)and she looooves to play. Balloons and this green ball I have are her favorite toys. I'm going to the pet store tomorrow to get treats, toys, and a leash. Ferrets are awesome pets and need lots of love everyday. They make wonderful pets but they also take a lot of responsibility to care for one(even more with two or more ferrets). But the hours of fun really do make up for the smelly cages and baths.
Editor's Note: It's important to be careful with balloon's since pieces from a popped balloon could cause a life threatening blockage. Because of this, toys for ferrets should never be constructed with latex, rubber, foam rubber, or Styrofoam.
Thank You, Thank You, you have saved my ferrets life!
I run a small ferret rescue and one of my little charges came to me with a bad tick infestation, which we duly removed. After about 7 days I noticed that the little girl was a bit wobbly on her back legs (looked a little intoxicated). I took her to the vet who was at a loss as to what was wrong and gave her a shot of Diazapan to relax her. About 2 hours later I found her back legs were paralyzed. I looked up paralysis in ferrets and found your article on Lyme Disease. I called the vet at 10pm, met him at the hospital and asked him to carry out the treatment as per your article. He didn't seem convinced but as he couldn't diagnose it as anything else, I said we must give it a go. For 2 days I expected Susie to die, her spine was crooked and she looked as if she had had a stroke down on side of her body, I was taking her every day to the surgery for the shots and the vet was very pessimistic saying the outlook didn't look good. On the 3rd day she was crawling about the cage looking for food, on the fourth day she is walking, the vet is astounded to say the least and asked for a copy of your article.
Once again, Thank You.

I believe Ferrets make wonderful pets, and would suggest that anyone looking for the perfect pet, and can meet the need of a Ferret should share my experience of having one, or two.
Hey!! I just got a ferret 5 days ago, and this first week has been hilarious!! Ferrets are the funniest creatures EVER!! His name is Bandit and he is the friendliest ferret ever, very nosy... He is into everything... BUT I LOVE HIM!!!
I Love Ferrets!

I absolutely adore ferrets and, quite honestly, can't stand when people misunderstand, mistreat or simply hate ferrets (some ignorant idiots often think that ferrets are smelly, ugly, resemble rats etc.) I wish we had more ferret shows/competitions here in Ga - it seems like we have very few ferret lovers. I personally have two little fuzzers - Microdot (girl) and Prozac (boy) - found some great info on your website!

My family and I had two wonderful ferrets, Pip and Phinny. I can't tell you the joy and laughter they brought to us. It's a shame they don't live a bit longer.
I have 2 ferrets one's a boy called Yogi and the other is a baby girl. She's called Jilli and I love them to bits.

People that have Ferrets, should be thankful that they are legal where they live. My wife and I would love to have a couple Ferrets. The higher ups here in California are behind the times and are not too bright.

This web site helped me do things with my baby girl named Tink Tink. She is very sweet. Loves to play with socks on your feet and loves it when you slide her down the hall.
