If you have decided that you want to adopt a ferret, but have not given any thought as to where you are going to get him from. Well there are several options that are available for you to choose from. The first port of call for most people is normally the local pet store.
At your local pet store, you will usually find all of the things that you will need in order to look after your pet. As ferrets are not the number one choice as pets, there probably will not be much of a selection to choose from. And they are going to be in competition with all of the other more popular animals. That will probably mean that the more popular pets, cats, dogs, and rabbits will usually get pride of place.
If your local pet store does have some ferrets on show. Then they will probably stock some of the other basic items that you will need.
You will have to select an appropriate cage for your new pet. Below are some of the essential extras that you will need.
1. The Food And Water Dishes.
These dishes should be solid and heavy enough that they will not easily be thrown around by your ferret.
2. Sleep Sacks Or Hammocks.
These should be durable and lined if possible for extra warmth. They should also be machine washable, this will help to prevent the spread of disease.
3. The Litter Box.
The litter box should be portable, so that it can be removed from the cage for easy cleaning.
4. Ferret Food.
At your local pet store, you will be able to purchase the same type of food that your pet has been eating. And hopefully, some general advice about looking after a ferret from the store keeper.
There are of course many other things that you could buy, toys for example and harnesses. So if your local pet store is where you intend to purchase your ferret. You will hopefully find that everything you need, will be there in that one place.
