Q: What are the normal noises that ferrets make?
A: Ferrets make quite a few noises that include a "dook" (a clucking noise); a hiss, which indicates frustration; a screech/scream, which requires immediate attention; and a squeak often heard during play.
All these noises are common and normal ferret noises in healthy ferrets. Occasionally you might hear a whine or whimper, which can mean pain, so have a veterinarian check that out if it happens.
