Ferret Proofing

Martha Stewart Living Television

If your local laws permit ferret ownership and you've decided to adopt, make sure your pet won't have access to poisonous houseplants or other toxins, such as Styrofoam peanuts, rubber bands, potpourri, erasers, or deflated balloons. Because ferrets loves to climb and explore, animal expert Marc Morrone suggests placing baby protectors on cabinets, checking dishwashers and washing machines before running them, and coating wires with a bitter apple spray to discourage nibbling.
