Ferrets Enjoy Snow Adventure

Playing in the snow is fun for ferrets, too!

What do you do when piles of snow arrive outside your door? If you’re a ferret, you step outside for some serious frolicking. A group of ferrets had fun exploring how snow had transformed their play area. It’s all a white mystery, with play tubes suddenly becoming underground tunnels. But playing together is more fun when falling onto soft snow.

It’s all fun and games until most of the ferrets decide it’s time to disappear through a tunnel into the next play area. And for one ferret who was a bit more portly than his ferret friends, escape into that second play area was impossible. He tried to stop his buddies from exiting, but his efforts ended in frustration.

Many ferrets enjoy a short jaunt in the snow when temperatures are comfortable enough for people. Another option is for people to bring a bit of snow inside, either in a big container or in the bathtub. Now there’s another great opportunity for ferrets to conquer the snow.
