This sweet little one was brought in to the shelter after beign found injured in the Milton area. Friendly and palyful Nibbles may be the next best addition to your pet family. Here are a few things to consider first. The Ontario SPCA says it best:
While the average life expectancy of a ferret is 6-8 years, a healthy ferret can live up to 11-12 years! If you plan to adopt a ferret, keep in mind that this may be a long-term commitment as a pet owner.
Ferrets require patience. Ferrets are very curious pets that love to explore, play, and sometimes get into mischief. While you’ll no doubt be entertained by their antics, you’ll also need a good sense of humour in case your ferret causes any damage to your property or belongings. For the safety of your ferret, make sure you properly ferret proof any room that your ferret will have access to.
Ferrets and some household pets don’t mix. Ferrets will typically get along fine with dogs and cats, but must be kept separate from rabbits, rats, hamsters, mice or other small rodents. If you have a rodent as a pet, a ferret may not be the best addition to your pet family.
Ferrets have high exercise requirements. Ferrets should not be kept in their cage all day and should have at least 3-4 hours of supervised playtime every day to exercise and roam.
