They are now both curled up on an old t-shirt behind the sofa. ::)

Glad you got him back safe and sound.

Ferrets being so clever easily learn to come when called (or whistled)- anything for a treat!

We look forward to seeing more photos of the 'fun' they get up to!
Very often quite lost- would be more lost if I could work out where I was!- But always find my way home.....

We haven't had ferrets for a few years now and still miss them :( might get some more though :D  Tom liked to swim in the pond and Damson would scratch on the front door to come inside :D

Im thinking about getting some ferrets, thing is im not allowed to keep them at home(terms of tennacy), but i keep my chickens and a rabbit at my allotment at the moment, how do ferrets deal with living a bit more outdoorsish, outdoors meaning i have a shed with a rabbit hutch+possibly a house for ferrets. the rabbit is going soon as i understand it is a ferrets favorite food. has anyone got a guide like i had for chickens about keeping ferrets.

Best regards

Hi lightyears, I don't want to put you off but the allotment is not the place for ferrets.  They're very easy to keep, need company human and ferret and they love to play.  So please don't get any unless you can give them the love and company they need.

I also wouldn't advise keeping them anywhere near rabbits - sheer terror for the rabbits and torture for the ferrets!  :ohmy:

Chickens would fit in your setup far better, I feel.
