A Baby Ferret Entered a Neighbor Backyard - Pet and Hobby 15

Fig-01- A baby ferret in the hand of my neighbor

One of my neighbors got a “guest,” entered his backyard. The guest was a baby ferret.

What make me wonder was what a kind of animal is this. I never saw this animal, and have no idea about its.

By searching through internet, I found that the ferret has scientific name called as Mustela putorius furo.

Interestingly, ferrets moms are called as Jills, and their dads as hobs. The kids called as kits.

Ferrets have the same families with animals you might know:

- minks

- wolverines

- ermines

- weasels

- polecats

- stoats


Fig 02- A cute little ferret

It was domesticated since thousand years ago, some source said around 2,500 years ago.

The animal then brought to America. It is said as one of popular pets recently. I checked in some of pet shops, the price range from US$60 to US$250.

We may add some couple hundred dollars for additional costs include:

- several vaccines shots

- veterinary examinations

- basic supplies.

Do you know someone has a ferret as a pet? What do you think?

  2. It seems more and more ferrets are out and about here. I think most who own them keep them in cages in the basement and once they get out they are hard to catch unless you are the right person. They are unique, but love the outdoors too.

  9. I opened my mother’s apartment door one day and came face to face with a similar creature on the step looking in at me. We frightened each other.

  13. Ooh, ferrets scare me! They're like hairy snakes! Although I admit that this little guy looks harmless. Oh well, each to his/her own!
