Marnie came into our care after she was found as a stray. She is a sweet little girl but is still a little nervous around people so would benefit from a home that can continue socialising her. She is currently living alone at the centre so will need to find a home that has another ferret for company.
Size requirements: A single/pair of ferrets needs a minimum space requirement of 6 ft x 3 ft x 31/2 ft high (18 sq ft) with a sleeping area of 1ft x 1ft 9 inches (1.8 sq ft).
Diet: Ferrets can be fed on a complete food. They do also enjoy fresh meat like mince and chicken on occasions. They can also be given eggs which they really enjoy. Ferrets here are fed on JWB ferret complete food, with a small amount of meat every other day and an egg once a week.
Health: Ferrets are vaccinated against distemper and microchip before leaving the centre.
Neutering: Both male and female ferrets can be neutered. It is essential female ferrets are neutered or have gill jabs. All ferrets here are neutered before homing.
Company: Ferrets should be kept as pairs or more. They are very sociable animals and would live in large groups naturally.
Enrichment: Ferrets are highly active and inquisitive animals who need constant change in there environment to ensure they do not become bored. When ferrets are bored they will go looking for something to do which often results in an escape. There are many ways to enrich for example. Plant pots, Tunnels/tubes, Cat toys, hammocks etc. They also enjoy being walked on a ferret harness. If you need any more ideas please ask.
