PAELLA & BASMATI
Basmati and Paella came into our care after they were abandoned. They are a lively pair who love running around together then curling up in bed for a good snooze. They are best of friends so will need to be rehomed together. They will benefit from a home that can continue socialising them as they can be a little shy.
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. Tins of cat food can also be given. Ferrets here are fed on James Wellbeloved ferret complete food, with a small amount of meat every other day and an egg once a week.
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.
Microchip: All of our ferrets are microchipped before leaving the centre and registered to the owner when adopted
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 their 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.
