Ultimate Ferret Playground for Under $50

My kids talk about the Ultimate Ferret Playground we put together for under $50.00. Ferret's make amazing pets and my kids with Autism love them tremendously. We went to Home Depot and picked up 50 feet of corrugated pipe for about $20.00. We spent another $20.00 on various connectors so we could connect sections of various pipe together to form a ferret freeway. The kids change the setup around every day and make it a new experience for our ferrets. https://youtu.be/r-sf1XKlOJE


4 Ferrets and 50 Feet of Corrugated Pipe

I've been getting a ton of requests for more videos of our ferrets. The boys and I spent some time setting up a new playground for our furry friends. We picked up fifty feet of corrugated pipe from Home Depot and sorta turned it into a huge maze of tunnels for the ferrets to play in. They love running through tunnels and have been having a blast with their new playground. Anyway, here's the video I just put up on my channel, explaining what we did and sharing some information about the ferrets themselves. https://youtu.be/V-kVh_wS_wA


Have you ever bathed a ferret?

It's been a few months since the last time we did this but it was high time to give the ferrets a bath. It's not recommended that you bathe a ferret more than a few times a year because doing so, can actually make them smell worse. Emmett and I took on the task of bathing all four of the ferrets, two at a time. Some of the ferrets really like the water and some of them don't. Lemme wanted nothing to do with it. Tiny, Zane and Charlie did quite well by comparison. The hardest and most painful part for me personally, was their claws. When they cooperated, it wasn't too bad but when they didn't want to play along, their claw ls were fucking sharp. Emmett and I…

How we calm our ferrets so their nails can be trimmed

There's a trick to trimming a ferrets nails, and it's called distraction. We have to do with with our ferrets every two weeks or so. If we didn't, their nails get like a raptors talons and can accidentally do so damage, or cause injury. By letting them lick the tube of Furo-Vita, a ferret vitamin supplement, occupies them enough that you can safely trim their nails.. ☺ https://youtu.be/V6ODf-ATQTk

Something you may or may not know about me is that I'm a closet photographer... Taking pictures of the things or events going on in our life is something I truly enjoy doing.  This is a picture of Charlie. He the youngest, and yet largest of member of our ferret family.  The three of the boys absolutely adore our ferret family and the ferrets adore the kids as well. They love snuggling and helping the boys to feel better when they are overwhelmed or overstimulated. They're pseudo service animals and over the last two years, have been a hugely positive addition to our family. 


Meet the ferrets helping my kids with #Autism 

If you've been following our story for awhile, you already know how I like to share about the positive impact animals have on my kids with Autism.  I've been raised around animals my whole life and have always benefited from having pets.  It's widely known that animals can have a profoundly positive impact on kids with Autism or Special Needs. I won't pretend to know exactly why this is but I know it's true.  When my kids met their first ferret about a year and a half ago, there was an instant bond. What really surprised me was how they've never lost that bond, even after all this time. My kids both seek and gain comfort from our ferret family, every single say.  Snuggling a ferret is often the first…
