    @ash52277 you have to have a lot of time.. and they are a little hard to litter very glad i have no carpets lol ..and you have to ferret proof your whole house ..or room…cause your parents probably wont want it running around the house…other than that they are great and so cute!:P

    All animals are just $s to these companies, it’s a shame but it’s true, they only way to get better care for animals in the long run, is to give an animal that desperately needs a home one, – ie from a rescue centre, where the people are usually volunteer and actually care about the animals, will give you all the information you need – accurately.

    @ash52277 I have two ferrets. I got my first one for my 14th birthday. they’re really fun animals that are full of personality. I think they’re great pets. The only thing is, if you want to get one you have to have free time. they need to play alot in the day. and my ferrets love to go for walks aswell, even though it takes them awhile to get anywhere lol I think overall, if you can keep up with these little furry guys, you should go for it. But I recomend just starting with one for awhile. 😉

    WRONG as usual. That litter pan she showed will NOT work because the front lip is way too high. Ferrets will not use that – they will go right outside it. The front lip needs to be no more than 1 1/2″ high so they can back in. Pine litter contains “aromatic olephins” (as does cedar chips) that are harmful to ferret skin and respiratory systems. This whole “Expert Village” series is filled with erroneus and downright harmful information. Don’t believe ANY of it.

    @looop51 Are you prepared to dedicate at least the next seven years of your life to caring for your ferret? Are you prepared to shell out at least $500 for a tumor operation? (or $125 and a broken heart if they don’t make it?). They are care intensive critters, and I have yet to see any 14 year old who’s fit to handle it. Heck, most college students aren’t fit, and two of my current three came from irresponsible college kids.

    @looop51 I don’t know. Am I? At that age, life comes at you quickly and things change fast.

    PINE?! Okay, well they obviously know nothing. Pine is VERY bad for ferrets. -.-

    Ceder AND pine are bad btw, please don’t buy this crap. She’s probably just trying to sell some shit from the store. Listen to TheMrBlinx or some other people commenting on this video because they seem to know a lot more from experience.

    Thanks. 🙂

    @SerenityX27 Many people use newspaper. I used to shred it, but found that they would accept it whole. The ink is safe because it’s made from vegetable oil. There are also newspaper based litters available, as well as other products. BTW, neither “Expert Village” nor her animal hospital dared to answer my e-mails, so they should both be avoided.

    @AnimeVampireAngel One guy on our ferret forum is in England. He hunts rabbits professionally with a dog, ferrets and a hawk. He surrounds a rabbit warren with nets then puts down one or two ferrets. In about ten minutes, rabbits start bolting out holes and are caught by the nets. Those that make it under the nets are dispatched by a hawk or a dog. Farmers pay him to work their fields because there is an epidemic of rabbits.

    @emekonen Cedar and Pine both emit what are called aromatic hydrocarbons. They are airborn compounds that can and will cause respiratory irritation and can compromise liver function. While cedar is much worse than pine, both do carry some degree of danger. Recycled newspaper-based litter is much better. I hope this helps. 🙂

    @KursedMoo its really a shame they are misinforming people like this about pine. some people research about pets before getting them, and may think its ok to use pine now because of this stupid vid.

    @werewolfbitevictim I agree, it really is a shame. I just hope that people read the comments from the people that are experienced and know what they’re talking about. I bet the lady in this video doesn’t even own a ferret.
