Ferrets make fantastic pets, but they need a lot of attention, space and socialisation to be happy. Before you buy a ferret you need to be sure you have the space, time and money needed to raise a happy, healthy ferret.
Ferrets can live up to 12 years — will children become bored of pet ownership in that time? Will they leave home or go to university leaving their ferrets at home? Will you always be able to provide the space ferrets need? Think about everything and do your research before you commit to ferret ownership.
