Ferrets need plenty of love!

How important is it to provide your ferrets with love?

The reason I ask this question is because a friend of mine told me about an experiment that was done on two bunnies. One bunny was given a diet full of nutrition and vitamins and left alone while the other was given a poorer diet but plenty of love.

The surprising thing is that the bunny that had an optimal diet and no love died well before the other bunny.

As horrible as this experiment sounds (I wish I could have given that poor bunny some TLC!) it only highlights the importance of LOVE. All living beings whether it be humans, cats, birds or  ferrets thrive on tender loving care!

How do you show your ferrets you love them?

Different ferret owners have different ways of showing their ferrets they love them. Some give their ferrets food treats, spoil them with toys, others give their ferrets hugs and kisses.

Just remember that although it is ok to give your ferrets the occasional food treat it is not necessarily a sign of love. In fact many owners give ferrets food treats such as raisins, fruit, vegies, sweets and other human food thinking that they are just showing their ferrets how much they love them, when they are in fact doing more damage than good.

Always remember that there is only one real universal language of love and that is… touch. When you touch someone or something in a loving and caring way it is like a positive energy jumps from one body to another. The more you play, hug, stroke and spoil your ferrets with kisses the more loved they will feel!

So forget the unhealthy treats (it could make them sick) and don’t worry about spoiling your ferrets with too m

any toys (thankfully ferrets can find and steal their own!) all they really need is someone they can trust, love and play with…so you better make that person YOU!
