Meet our handsome duo, Roberto and Ricardo.
They came into the centre along with their other 3 brothers as they were found abandoned.
They are both very energetic and can be quite nervous of doors, load noises etc.
Kits have a tendency to nip and bite and this pair are no exception, they will need you to continue their nip training when they go home.
They will require a lot of your time and you will need to be patience.
We do not recommend kits for inexperienced owners unless you are prepared to be patient and teach them some manners.
It is normal for ferrets to peak in biting at around 14-20 weeks old, and it can be a very big source of frustration so just stay consistent and confident. Usually when a ferret is nip-trained consistently and handled correctly, nipping will cease completely at around 12-18 months old, and most ferrets can then be trusted around faces.
With them being nervous as well they will make a rewarding challenge for the right family.

We do suggest you do some research if you have never owned a ferret / ferret kit before.
