    No, but I saw a ferret colony, unfortunately in a university laboratory animal house I was visiting to find out about laboratory animal welfare. It was one of the better places. The ferrets were not caged, but had free run of a big space with lots of toys.

    They were so cute. I walked into the room and they all stood up on tiptoe to see what was going on. Little faces with bright eyes watching and watching, awww...

    Other than cat/dog and birds we are not allowed to put any other animal as pet. Ferrets are good but can't keep them.

      I keep 4 ferrets on my own. In Czech Republic, ferrets are pets.
      There is not much places to see ferrets in wild nature. Ferrets are great pets for people who can handle them. They need love and time. They are not as boring as cats or dogs. They will never listen to you, if you cannot handle them.

      I am fighter for ferrets, in many places they suffer a lot just as another animals.

    I guess in india, ferrets are not allowed as pets. Besides ferrets are quite rare here as well.

    Not right now, they're not allowed in the housing complex sad. My husband had a ferret for 10 years, but it died a few months before he moved away from Alaska to come be with me. We both agree that when we buy a place we're DEFINITELY getting at least one ferret.

    About 6 yrs back I was breeding all sorts of colours of ferrets. It became too expensive because people wanted all shots and aultering completed, but wouldn't cover the cost for it. I kept the best one back till he died of old age 9yrs in 06-07 sometime. They are great as a single pet that you can provide a huge living space and tons of play energy with

    Ferrets are great pets, very friendly and more amusing than cats or dogs. Many of my family have kept ferrets.

    Amusing story from early 1950's - my fishing, shooting and hunting Uncle kept about ten ferrets that were used most days for catching rabbits (part of how he made his living). In a very harsh winter Uncle brought them all indoors and put them in the only vacant space under the bed. His wife got really upset and after a few days of arguing gave him the ultimatum - they go or I go!  In a break in the weather Uncle was telling us this while we were 'netting up' a rabbit warren ready to put in his ferrets, and he was telling my father about the divorce !
