Mainly toilet paper and paper towel tubes. I gave my fuzzier these to play with because they seemed to enjoy rolling them around and looking in them. They were little during that time. Later i got a dig box for them and placed a couple cardboard tubes in it. The tubes got buried and I noticed a new behavior from my fuzzy who was in the box. I couldn't seem him but something wasn't right. I pulled him out and he had gotten his head stuck in the tube and had wet himself. I felt terrible! I only use tubes created for ferrets now and my boy is ok. He LOVES the 15ft flexible tube I got him from the pet store. Don't make my mistake
It truly doesn't appear a risk at first. Until you hear of the sheer number of deaths and close calls from these things

Yeah. Fortunately I am a "helicopter" parent. I'm that guy in pet stores reading packages of every item I consider buying. I research the maker or brand, read reviews and even talk to workers in the stores until I find one who owns a ferret to ask them about items. Best advice I have for anyone is to never leave them alone and keep an eye or ear on them at all times. It's that moment you stop paying attention when they can get hurt.
