Having been searching the web for Ferret info, I found this forum, which appealed to me hoping to make the best environment for our new fella!
I/we are 1st time Ferret owners, rehomed a lil'guy 3 days ago. He was with a young lady, who clearly had lost interest...and maybe the smell was what tipped the balance!?
He appeared, what I can only say was 'shut down'...very lethargic, just slept, not eating a great deal. Came with 2 storey cage, bedding, bowls etc...and a bag of Purina Cat food (straight in the garbage!!)
Introduced him to some chicken 'soup'...
The aim now being Raw...and I'm sorry but I will be asking LOTS of questions that may have already been asked! but even at day 3, he has perked up and he actually chased a ball and stashed his new toys!
hi and welcome. we're glad you found us. good job ditching the cat chow. i once adopted a 2 y o who lived on that and he was diagnosed with insulinoma 2 days after his second birthday. it's crap for ferrets
