I had 2 ferrets when I lived at home about 5 years old. The female (Jilly) was a bit nasty but the male (Jake) was so soft, when I was alot younger he would sleep in my bed with me and loved being curled up on the sofa! I was given him by a man who had rescued him, he was found on the river in a plastic bag

Jake only ever bit once in the years that I had him and that was because Mum was sqeaking a sqeaky toy at him and he was excited!

One morning I got up, I went out to feed him and his hutch was open, he had gone I managed to find the female but never got Jake back I made the decision to take Jilly to animal care as she was nasty.

The only problem about ferrets is they stink!

I've told hubby if Tristan asks for a pet when he is older he can either have a ferret or a rat! I don't want him having something boring like a hamster etc!

Hey all, I'm looking into getting a ferret from a local rescue centre (they have 30+, all neutered). My only concern is the smell, do you guys keep them in or out? How do you keep the smell down? x

The smell really isn't that bad. It's kind of a musky smell, and don't really notice it unless you put your face right up to them behind their ears. And especially if they have been neutered then it really cuts it down. What I always did is I would just give mine a bath about once a week, but he was a big water baby and loved bath time.

Aww that sounds lovely! I've got a 12-18 month old spayed female. She had kits recently, but the rescue man said she likes her own space, if she shows signs of loneliness, i'll get one of her daughters (she had 8 kits). I put her straight in to her hutch, she seems very keen to come and play. She's so funny, straight away she rearranged the hutch x
