Here are some tips for the best possible housing for your ferret. Its housing should:

  • be restricted to a safe enclosure when the animal is unattended
  • have solid flooring, or if wired, be filled with bedding of shavings (no cedar), newspaper or commercially available bedding made of recycled paper or cloth
  • contain "cage furniture:'' hammocks, muffs, corrugated tubes, dryer vent tubing and large PVC pipes for tunneling
  • contain folded fabric such as a sheet or flannel clothing for burrowing while sleeping
  • have average room temperature and humidity (avoid greater than 80 F and humidity over 55%)
  • provide for a constant source of fresh water
  • include a litter box
