Hero the Ferret (Pictures)
    #5902204 - 07/26/06 05:32 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Tonight my boyfriend and I are going to pick up a ferret.  Rather than buy one from a pet store, we're adopting one that needs a new home.  She's 2 and 1/2 years old, and very cute.  Her name right now is "Hero".  I don't know how I feel about that name.  I also don't know if she responds to her name or not.  If she does, I'm obviously not going to change it and confuse the poor little girl.  If she doesn't though, what do you guys think a good name would be?  I like the names Fuzzy and Penelope, but I'm open to suggestions.  I'll be taking more pictures when we get home with her, it will be interesting to see how Lucy takes to a little ferret bouncing around  :tongue2:

Nice, I always liked them when I was younger - the ones I was around were very energetic, friendly, and playful. Been a while since I was around one.

My boyfriend has had ferrets before, but I haven't. I've always wanted one, and I'm happy that the situation worked out the way it did. The ferret's owner is going to medical school and cannot bring her, so she's giving her to us for free. She's also giving us her big cage, hammock, bedding, food, stuffed octopus that is apparently her favorite toy, litter box, litter, etc. She wanted to give it all for free, but I'm giving her $50 just so that I don't feel like I'm robbing her.

Yeah ferret's can get into really small places, so it's very important to ferret proof. The most dangerous thing is the kitchen, where the get behind the dishwasher, fridge, etc. We have a door to our kitchen though, that always remains shut (so the puppy can't get in there) so that's not an issue.

Yeah definitely, they get upset if they're not played with a lot.  She's been a single ferret since she was a baby, so we're not separating her from a cage mate or anything.  We're going to take care of her for a few months, see how it goes, and if we think it's do-able, we'll get another one so they can play with eachother and hang out.  Also though, my dog LOVES little animals, and she's very gentle, so I bet they'll play together.  Obviously it will be under extremely close supervision, especially at first  :tongue:

Very nice looking :dancing: . And that is nice that your adopting one.
I shop at Petco all the time, and I see theirs, out front
in glass display cases,You would think that those beautiful living creatures are just some worthless jewerly, the way they have them caged up.

Just so you know, among us veteran ferret owners there's a concept called "ferret multiplication".

So just a heads up, you probably won't stop with just one, they're too damn cute when they play with each other.

Here's some more pictures!  Jadian, I can definitely see us getting another ferret sometime!  We want to get used to taking care of one first though, and then get 1...or 17 more  :smirk:

Hehe, lucy apparently wondered about the taste of life ferret...


I guess I understand having to make an area safe for your pet, but how do ferrets manage to kill themselves? Getting under the refridgerator and what not was mentioned, but I'm still a little clueless, unless they get stuck or something...

Did you educate yourself in ferrets?

I've owned 2 for a long time now and they rock.

My old roommate had a ferret.

Very social little creature. Could be trusted to scamper about the house. Had quite a taste for beer too :smile:

Awwww! She's cute! She looks like my little girl. I have two names for m ferrets. One for when their in trouble and one i use for regular use. Something I learned in a book. I'd show you a video I have of my two little loves, but I don't know how to upload videos on here. Good luck! If you little train them, you can have them out as long as your doggy doesn't mind them. My dog and cat don't mess with them so they get to run around the house sometimes. Though it's still best to have a cage.
