Ferrets And Soap

What makes ferrets lick soap bars?

Q: Why do ferrets like to lick bars of soap?

A: I have never had a ferret show interest in a bar of soap, but I don’t let my ferrets around things they shouldn’t be eating or ingesting. I can only guess that something about the soap tastes good to your ferret. This isn’t safe and you should make sure that your ferret can’t get to any soap to lick.

All three of my ferrets do the same thing - my vet said it was ok to let them it would not harm them, maybe would even help with passing fur
