In the past years ferrets had gotten a raw deal as a negative pet to own. But maybe it is because, they we're misunderstood. Maybe their needs and behaviors we're not understood either.
If you want to know about whether or not a ferret is a good family pet, well the real question is, is the family responsible enough to own the ferret.
As with any pet, ferrets take commitment, and proper care and love. Like your other pets, they need regular exercise, and training. They need lots of love and attention. And your ferret does require vet care for vaccinations.
Ferrets make families a wonderful pet, due to their low maintenance. And they are inexpensive pets to own as well.
The best thing to do before buying one, is to make sure your home is ready for a ferret, and that your family is as well. And do some research along the way also.
