We love cats and dogs, hamsters, parrots and fish, but we flatly forget about the existence of such adorable creatures as ferrets. But these adorable animals with a silky fur coat and curious eyes could compete with popular pets, taking their place. And to prove to you that ferrets are as loyal and loving as dogs and sometimes behave as strange as cats, we have put together a collection of these funny photos.

 

The ferret, known until recently only as a predator, has recently become the favorite pet of many animal lovers.


The ferret is part of the Mustela putorius family, being a small carnivore widespread in almost all of Europe, North Africa and West Asia.


The only domesticated subspecies is Mustela putorius furo, the other species at maturity becoming nervous and irascible. It is not known exactly when the ferret was domesticated. An estimate places this process before 1500 BC, which is believed to have been similar to that of the cat. He was used to hunt rabbits.


You will definitely not see anything more charming than this today.

The ferret has a thin and flexible body, with short legs adapted to fast movements. The head is small, wide and flattened with small, round ears.


The length of the body without a tail is between 30-50 cm, and the length of the tail can reach 20 cm. The weight of ferrets varies depending on sex, a male ferret at maturity generally exceeds one kilogram while a female weighs at maturity from 650 grams to one kilogram.


The color of the fur varies between gray, brown or beige on the back with paws and black belly. It has white stripes around the muzzle and at the tip of the ears. The most developed of the senses is the smell followed by hearing and sight. The domesticated ferret lives between 10-15 years.

Ferrets, like cats, choose β€œuncomfortable” sleeping positions in which they are quite comfortable.

In the case of domestic ferrets, many of them have excised perianal glands, but this does not remove the odor specific to ferrets because during the mating period they emit the smell through several other glands located at the base of the neck, as well as other parts of the body. These glands serve the animals for the protection of the fur.


Despite the fact that they have a specific smell, it is not recommended to be bathed more often 4-5 times a year. You have to learn from the chickens where exactly they are allowed to defecate, otherwise they will choose the nearest corner. He can be taught to defecate in litter, using sand for cats.


The care activities are almost the same as for any animal: the ears must be cleaned periodically, the fur brushed and the nails shortened. They must be checked by a veterinarian and vaccinated.

 

Surely he immediately regretted his decision.

An ideal food for ferrets should consist of 32-38% protein and 15-20% fat, always of animal origin. It is recommended to consume only poultry or fish dishes.


Meat and pork dishes are harmful to them. They also like sweets, such as raisins or peanut butter, but these should be given in moderation due to the fact that sugars cause disorders in their metabolism and fruits should be peeled. For their fur to be shiny and healthy, it is advisable to eat one egg a week .


The ferret sleeps between 14 and 18 hours, but when he is awake he is very lively, always exploring what is new. The most active period of ferrets is morning and evening. They adapt their activities according to the master's program. They like to play with their owners, their games being very similar to those of cats.

 

 

These guys are perfect for each other.

"I was collecting the table and turned away for one minute, and this bandit climbed into the expanded polystyrene."

The dimensions of an ideal cage for a ferret are: 120 cm x 60 cm x 60 cm. Ferrets really like tiered cages, with access ramps between floors. They have to spend time outside the cage to consume their energy. It adapts very well to walking on a leash but it takes patience.


As with other small animals, ferrets are very sociable with other animals but must be accustomed to the period when they are puppies. Playful, agile and curious, they become fascinating pets when they are well cared for, offering unique moments of relaxation.

Taking pictures of wildlife can be quite difficult, because you cannot just take animals and tell them to sit still, not move and smile - they simply will not understand you and will go about their business. But sometimes people still manage to capture animals in all their glory, when they look as cute and insanely adorable as possible!
