Here is a video that was requested by the Ferret-World Facebook community – How to tame a ferret. In it I give some handy tips on how to make your new ferret…
Hello, I just recently adopted an 8 month old ferret. She was abused, she
is a big sweetheart but sometimes can be aggressive. I scruff her like in
your video says and as soon as I put her down she goes to nip me again. Or,
if I go to pick her up because she is about to go towards cords because I’m
afraid she will chew them, she nips. So I put her in her cage and she seems
to be upset when I put her in her cage. She knocks her food over and her
litter box. Could this be from the abuse?. Can she be tamed if she was
abused? When she bites it’s not an aggressive bite. It’s just a nip. I was
told when I bought her, her previous owners didn’t treat her very well. She
has a burn mark by her left leg. So I’m thinking it’s lack of trust? Is
there anyway I can get her to trust me. Or is this aggressiveness permanent
because of the abuse. Any tips or information would be really appreciated
because my daughters love her.
I have a problem with my ferret. . . .it keep bitting my cables and if this
keep up i cant have her anymore, any tips?? (PS. I already tried everything
in this video to make her stop but still she keep bitting all my

Thanks for sharing your video. I love the part were you made me see how
ferrets see us. HAHAHAHAA.
My new ferret (just got him today, named Fergus) is six weeks old and he
doesnt have enough skin on the back of his neck to scruff. When i do manage
to scruff him he squirms around like im hurting him. What should i do?
I just got two ferret over the weekend and my ferret Radical like to bite
at the plastic bowl that’s the foods in. Is that normal or should I get a
different bowl that attaches to the cage.
RIP Bear ;-;
Me and my boyfriend bought two ferrets probably more than a week ago.. We
bought them from two different places. The male ferret seems to be fine and
doesn’t bite much, although he bit me today on the nose and actually drew
blood lol. But our female one is a terror. They’re both only about 11 weeks
old and we play with them alot and feed them a proper diet. The female one
just always seems to bite, she’s always in here naughty cage and everytime
she bites she draws blood, we’ve been using gloves with her recently. She
also doesn’t seem to want to sleep as much as the male one. We can’t even
really hold her because she will bite any piece of flesh she sees. I really
don’t know what else to do to try tame her and get her to trust us.
I am thinking about getting ferrets in about 6-12 months. I’m doing a lot
of research first. I would like to ask in the British winter could I put
them out side in my shed. It isn’t cold or anything in my shed personally
I’ve stayed a night there over when it was snowing it was actually warm.

When I hold my favorite Zelda she crawls on to my shoulder I can never hold
her the correct way lol.

the end of the vid. she will just wiggle so feisty and jump out my arms
