Ferrets And Cooler Temperatures

Are cool temperatures OK for ferrets?

Q: I know that people worry about ferrets and heat, but what about ferrets and cold? Our ferret won’t be outside, but during the winter we keep the thermostat low (around 60 degrees Fahrenheit); will this be too cold for him?

A: People in Europe often keep ferrets outdoors, and ferrets generally do better in cooler temperatures rather than hot; so 60 is a perfectly fine temperature for them.

My female ferret is approx 9 mths old. Pet shop I bought her from said she was fixed but wkuldbt prkvide paperwork as proof when I asked. Sge bites sometines siftly when aung but after being out of cage fr awhile she seems to turn on me. One nighton sofa crawled up my back, hooked in to back if my neck superhard and wouldnt let go. I had to keep trying to pull her off. Tried to swat ger bum. I got iff, then she came bk to bite again. I pht her in cage. Could the neck biting be dominance. They bite and drag each other by scruff of neck to prove their rank of order and dominance
