Hello!! I've always wanted ferrets but never thought I'd actually have them one day. They're my new babies and I'm still learning the ropes, but getting it down pretty quickly! They've given routine to my days and so so much joy.
Here's Mulan. She's currently very fluffy and soft and getting in her winter coat. Along with gaining a bit of weight. She's the sweetie of the two and doesn't play until I give her lots of cuddles and kisses.
And Midna. A little behind Mulan on the winter coat. She's my chewer and very active. Doesn't like to be held like Mulan does, but deals with it long enough for me to give her kisses.
They're not the greatest pictures but taking pictures of the restless babies isn't easy. I've had them for a couple of months now and actually looking to transition in to a raw diet very soon. They're currently eating Orijen kibble but it's way too expensive. * Gotta take them to the vet first for a check-up.
Will definitely be posting more when updates come!
Hi and welcome You will find whole raw is actually cheaper than most higher end kibbles
Ferrets: Contessa Kitties: Watson, Oskar DIP Sinnead, Vincent, Boris, Zeus and Athena, Willow, Mr. Frodo, Indie, Lucrezia, Judge, Odin, Miss Emily, Suki, Cody, Aristotle, Butterscotch, Frankenfurter. RIP Herne, Ligeia, and Mr. Stubbs
Thank you all for the warm welcomes! I took Mulan and Midna to the vet yesterday and thankfully had all good news! The vet was very nice and answered all of my questions. I was worried about a couple of things, but that may have just been new-parent panic.
Although, the pet store that I got them from, told me they were jills and so I took that without a second thought. When I took them to the vet, turns out I don't have two jills but instead I have hobs! This news was surprising to say the least but I love them the same of course. Them being hobs actually makes a lot of sense considering their growth spurts.
Anyway, with the good health news, I'll be starting a transition into a raw diet fairly soon! They're only about 6 months old so I actually have high hopes that the transition will go smoothly.

haha, it goes to show you that (sometimes) we can't depend on a pet store for information! I have heard of all kinds of silly stories! This one time, an employee at a pet store told a person to feed their ferrets only hamburger (nothing else added-like organs and such-no bone either) Another time, some other guy told them that ferrets were herbivores!
