Where Ferrets Like to Live

Petmania Ferret

Ferrets can be kept indoors or outdoors provided the housing is dry, draught free and out of direct sunlight.

Because they are active animals, their home will need to be large as possible and include multiple levels for playing, and a separate area bedding for sleeping in. Each Ferret will need its own bed. A layer of sawdust should be used to cover the base of the cage.

Ferrets that are kept indoors will need an outdoor run so that they can get enough daily exercise.

Ferret Exercise & Play

Ferrets need a lot of exercise, to help burn off the fat and the protein. This can easily be achieved by letting them run around in a pen, but if you dont have a pen, they will need supervised time outside their cage for at least two hours a day. Ferrets require constant monitoring for safety as they are always looking to explore and try new things. If outdoors, your Ferret should be kept in its pen, or on a leash.
