Ferrets are playful and mischievous pets that provide hours and hours of entertainment and companionship! Their playful behavior is much like that of a kitten as they bounce around and pounce on toys and playmates. Sometimes young ferrets get a little too mouthy, but they can be taught to be gentle. Their name comes from the Latin word for “thief”, which is fitting as these little creatures love to collect shiny or soft items and will often choose a hiding spot to hoard them!
