3. You must only get a ferret if you can spend time with it
While ferrets can entertain themselves by running around and exploring their surroundings, they can get bored once they feel that they’ve fully explored everything possible. Once your ferret has been in your home for a few days, you need to begin setting aside playtime to make sure that it doesn’t become restless with boredom. You don’t have to actually run around and play games, though – holding your ferret and petting it while you watch TV, like you would a cat, should be all that’s needed.
