    Default My Ferrets - Lot's of Fuzz

    So hard to get good shots of my ferrets, but I try. Some come out pretty good. They're a barrel of fun. =)

    This is Cooper in my dogs bed being all cute. He's only cute when he wants something. LOL


    Ren and Cooper with their dinner. Mm, chicken gizzards. Their favorite foods are chicken gizzards and heart, and egg yolk which they only get once or twice a week to keep fur and skin healthy, and keep down hairballs. Also, for those of you who thought ferrets were rodents or plant eaters...well, here you go. Like cats, they're obligate carnivores. And feeding them raw making them sick is a myth, best thing you can give them.


    Ah, Egg Day(got some duk soup mix in there). :3 Cooper gets some on his chin and tries to lick it. Makes me face/palm, but I swear he's smart!


    This is Ren trying to slink over to my cat. Yes, they get along great.


    Cooper being a bear. Initially he was looking at me upside-down, but you know ferrets - or if you don't, they never hold still for long.


    This is Ren giving me her undivided attention. :3


    Ren with her gorgeous winter coat. She's static-y from going through the tunnel and has a devilish face because she had her brother trapped. Ha! She's half his size and still beats owns him. In case you wonder why I have less photos of her than I do of Cooper, it's because she NEVER holds still.


    Carnivore teeth. Her teeth are actually pearly white. They look really gross here because I had given them ferretvite, which I never give anymore because it's nasty sugary junk, and bad for the teeth, as you can see. This is Ren tossing a tantrum because I wouldn't let her out while I changed my fish tanks.



    Yes, she's still going! Don't worry, she got out when there was no longer worries of her being stepped on.

    And some more...
    This is one of my favorites. I had just gotten them all dry and Cooper tried to sneak back in the tub while I had his sister in the towel. He saw me looking and got wild, knowing full well I didn't want him wet again! This photo was an accident, he slipped. He attempted to dance and almost fell in. xD


    Neighborhood watch! Alanna the cat and Cooper.


    Neighborhood Watch has found an intruder...and he knows it. lol


    Ren messed up my bed. They love blankets. They both get under them and wrestle.


    Leo the cat(RIP) and Ren when she was a skinny little kit. She was not well cared for before I got her, she stayed very thin and ill looking for quite a while, but with a vets help and speaking with some specialists, we fixed her up. Leo was their absolute BEST friend. That is his "I am curious, and I wanna play" face. He passed away last year(February 5th, 2013), and they mourned him severely to the point they would not eat or play and would coo and call to him in all the spots he used to frequent. I got them to eat again...after I got them a new cat to play with, but they still look for him. It was very sad. Ferrets make VERY tight bonds with each other and those involved with them, especially if it's from a young age. They always played, slept, ate and waited for me to come home together. They were a great trio.


    They want to go to bed. LOL


    First time ever having a tunnel. They went nuts and wrestled and played in that.


    They always met half way and nommed at each other.


    Ren and Cooper as kits. Cooper was nearly all black with some white and a grey and white face, he's now much, much lighter. Ren was much lighter and is now darker. Some do in fact change as they get older. =) I've seen near black sables go almost completely white within six or seven years.


    Cooper at six weeks and two days old. He was a Marshall Flub, they sent him out waaay too young with a shipment of older kits. I don't understand how they do that. He got some good care from me, and thankfully Ren mothered him and taught him how to eat because he didn't know how. His mother hadn't taught him enough yet. He was darn cute with that big head and small body though.



    Ren and my little cousin. She's nice and careful, and Ren absolutely adores kids. She's very good with children. Cooper is gentle and good with kids too...he just doesn't adore them. They're too loud for his taste, but he will play. He is more for older, quieter children. Ren however loves youngsters so when we go out we have to be VERY watchful or she'll go right to a toddler to be cuddled, and possibly mushed! She's like a dog. lol


    Cooper and Leo's very first meeting...Yeah. LOL Glad Leo was such a good cat. Never hurt anything BUT a fly...or moth. I was never able to get any video of them running around the house. Leo would instigate the chase and Cooper would run after him. It was the most hilarious thing ever. Best one was when Leo and he ran across the kitchen and Leo jumped onto a tall desk...Cooper of course in hot pursuit tried to jump too...Safe to say he didn't make it. xD He flew right under it, but he actually came close! Ferrets are typically very poor jumpers, but Cooper has a knack for it. He's a little thief! Most, if not all ferrets are though, he's just crafty about it. That, his funny antics and his big nose got him named after George Cooper, the King of Thieves in a book I love.

    They're adorable!
    Always wondered are ferrets easy pets to keep?
    Can you teach them to not ruin the furniture and to not poop all over everywhere?
    He's just a dandy guy, in space.

    Are you just showing us your ferrets or showing your photography?

    Bit of both. They can be hard to snag, and getting good shots of them takes more time than waiting for lightning to strike. x.x However...did I pop it in the wrong area? LOL Sorry! It's been a while since I bounced around the forums and I forgot where photos of randomness go. Can it be moved to the proper thread if it's not in it? For the most part it IS just showing off my fuzzbutts and talking about them, more than any real photography, though some may be worthy of attention other than "Awuh" I doubt any would make it to a magazine. lol

    They are cute...but no, they're one of the harder pets to keep. Costly, require a lot of your time(yes, they sleep a lot, but they need to be out and with you for at least six hours a day, spread out). They're like perpetual two year olds. They also need a lot of space, silly rabbit hutches don't do it, best to get leveled cages at least 5-6 feet high and three feet around, and you need proper ones since they're escape artists. You can find good ones cheap online sometimes, otherwise they can cost a few hundred dollars. Always up to trouble and mischief. They need a costly diet, people who give them low quality cat food are idiots, people who feed obligate carnivores vegan are just headshot worthy. Their food can cost $6-$12 a pound, and they eat often having a very short digestive tract and very fast metabolism. Vet bills aren't a breeze either, they're prone to a lot of problems and injury. Care DOES cut back on that a lot, proper care means healthier ferrets who likely wont come down with super nasties after two years old or some such. Of course if you feed them raw, or high quality kibble AND raw, it's often cheaper than just being on costly kibble, a proper raw diet is cheaper than all. I'll show you the difference between mine when they were on 8in1 and mine now on Wysong Epigen 90 and raw at the end.

    However, as for messing up the furniture and pooping all over the place: Give them enough toys and/or set up a proper playroom and you don't have to worry about the furniture. Often they don't mess with furniture...unfortunately mine did. >>; You can also litter-train them. Don't expect them to be like cats and never miss, sometimes they just can't make it and it's not their fault. However some are also stubborn brats and will go next to it just to spite you. lol

    Thought I'd pop up a couple more. ;D

    I love it when Ren sits on her butt, it looks funny. They had themselves their egg again. Mixed the whites in this time(seems I failed a proper mix, it LOOKED mixed lol), usually it's just the yolk.


    Cooper, one year old or so, still had his black coat. He was sleeping in the slide with his head upside down in the bottom, but he woke up. Are we ready to play?!


    This is how we clip nails, I dab a little ferretone on their bellies, lean them somewhere comfy and clip, they don't even notice you're there. Well, Ren does and tries to hide her feet under her shin or kick you, Cooper couldn't care less.


    This is one of my homemade "Duk Soup" recipes, also known as the Ferret Omelette. Chicken thigh, gizzards, egg yolk, bit of hot water, ferretone and duk soup mix. They get one version or other of that once a week with their egg.


    I got a photo earlier of Ren paying attention, but not Cooper. Here he is. =)

    THIS is also to show diet difference. The first one is on 8in1 kibble, supposed to be a pretty ok kibble for them. Both were skinnier than I'd like and Cooper got rat tail(loss of fur on his tail) and other issues. These photos were taken one year apart, give or take a week. He actually lost all the fur on his tail(some do this during the molting season, but he wasn't at this time, can also be from poor diet or allergies). I don't have any of him when it got really bad, it was upsetting and all the vet could tell me was "It happens sometimes, likely not agreeing with their diet." He ended up losing a good bit around his shoulders too, but he came up negative for adrenal disease, which can cause fur loss too. lol
