Loki was asleep in my arms and I heard/felt his stomach rumble. Shortly afterwards he let out a tiny little fart... Right on my hand. Haha This is probably a stupid question, but is that normal? Has anyone else experienced a little ferret fart??
Edit: the fart had no noticeable smell

Of course they fart. Mostly when they poop, but they have no modesty, lol With free roam ferrets and litter boxes in every room, you almost get used to the sound of some fert farting/pooping interrupting a tv show. Or supper. Or breakfast...

Fish gives my Siegfried gas and I mean GASSSS. Before I got him off fish based food he would let one fly and I would be halfway across the room on the couch almost praying for a quick death. The worst part would be him just standing there looking at me. Do ferrets smirk ?
I would say its normal haha! I mean it shows his tummy is working ok right? lolol so far my little guy has only done his farts when he well poops.. sitting here nonchalantly drawing... all the sudden a big ol fart and he is in the litter box looking at me LOL
I have to ask did it stink? Cuz I've ever been that close to a ferret that just farts.
Once, my cat OJ (long time ago) was walking by my chair while I was watching tv, stopped and tooted. 2 seconds later he bolted from the room. I laughed but 5 seconds after that, my ex and I did too. OMG smelled like a week old dead whale. Ferret poof has nothing on that. :puke:
I haven't come across my ferrets farting yet. My cat, YES, ferrets not so much. The cat got his name (Hades) partially because of his well-perfected method of wandering near you, farting a cloud of highly toxic gas, and then leaving you to your own mercy as he just wanders away again without a care in the world.
unclejoe Hades definitely does weaponize it. He's a very arrogant, yet cowardly cat. When it is just me, my husband and our ferrets.. he's fine, it's his roost to rule. But add one other human to the mix, even ones he has met before, like my inlaws.. boy.. his response is "murderous fart of fear" and then he runs off like a lightning bolt to hide in our bathroom until the intruders have left. He's such a weird little beast.. I wonder what happens in that mind of his.
