I found a 'used' ferret on Craigslist last week. I took the kids to meet her and it was love at first sight. The first thing I noticed was the smell... not too bad, just not the best of aromas.' Okay, so now 'Possum' the ferret is in my living room. I've done some googling and have a order of ferret supplies on the way, but nothing beats talking to other owners! So fire away, tell me the do's and don'ts, please. Here is one problem. Possum's cage she came with has two extra levels, a ramp and a hammock (99.98% of her time is spent there when in her cage). When we got her the entire floor of the cage was filled with 'Care fresh' bedding and there was some type of ferret litter in her box. She does not seem to use her litter box, ever. Basically the whole bottom of the cage was a litter box. I cleaned her cage and just filled the litter box with litter and the bedding she was using. Now she just uses the bare part of the cage floor or the lower shelf. I'm thinking of filling the bottom of the cage with litter and removing the shelf she is using a toilet. Is that a good/bad idea? She's a year old (I was told) is it too late to train her? Suggestions, please. She is a lovely little animal, but I don't do well with 'stink'. I have ordered some of the drops to put in her water that are supposed to reduce the smell. Do they? What kind of supplements does she need? How often should I bathe her? Is Marshall ferret food best for her? Thanks for all the help!
