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.
