Are ferrets a good pet?
It takes understanding, care, and commitment when caring for a ferret.
They can have behavior issues if not trained or raised properly. They are ever playful, silly, and fun. I have heard many stories about their loyalty and fun temperaments. Ferrets may not be as easy to take care of as some pets. I think the best question to ask yourself is "Would I make a good ferret owner?"
Take a look at this video of Fergus and his personality! This is a spirited and happy ferret.
I have learned a lot about animals in my career. Ferrets, in particular, have always been an interest to me. I have met many people in the animal industry that have loved and owned Ferrets. Ferrets can make great pets but do require a pet parent that has the right skills and understanding.

A ferret with proper breeding and handling usually will not bite. However, I have been told that ferret's bites are very painful. Usually, with proper handling and age, they grow out of this behavior.
|Ferrets sleep a lot!|
Ferrets are like cats in that they sleep a lot! Most ferrets sleep around 14 hours a day and sometimes more. Even with that being said, their waking hours can be full of mischief and sometimes even thievery! Ferrets are known to be a little stinky. Their Latin name means smelly little thief. They can be de-scented but I have heard they still carry a scent in their skin.

What do ferrets look like?
I prefer a ferret that is lighter in color but not completely white. I think it is pretty when a ferret has a beige coat with a little tan or brown. Some ferrets look like Siamese cats.
