A friend recently found a ferret in their garage. It was very thin and unhappy and the family were not sure what to do with it. However, after talking to FERT, the Ferret Education and Research Trust, they decided to take the animal on as a pet. With some dedicated care and attention, Franky the Ferret has become a happy member of the family. He is very active and having been handled daily, Franky and the children have got used to each other and really enjoy their time together. But while the children are not about, Franky needs plenty of stimulating toys to play with and a large enough space to run around and have a quiet nesting area. Ferrets are omnivores and need protein in their food to stay healthy, but you can buy specialist food that is designed specifically for them.
If you are ever worried about your pet’s health or well being, it is always best to ask your local vet or rescue centre for advice.
