"A dog owner may work from sun to sun, but a ferret owner's work is never done." Ok, so that might not be quite the way that that saying goes, but, when it comes to one aspect of ferret ownership, it is most definitely accurate - the task of ferret-proofing is never done. Just when you think that you've got it all under control, your fuzzy will find new things to get into, or new ways to get into old things that you thought were safe. So what exactly IS ferret-proofing and how is it done? Ferret-proofing is the task of making your home and your ferret's play area as hazard free as possible. Ferrets are like tiny toddlers - they get into everything and put everything in their mouthes. The main difference, of course, is that toddlers, unlike ferrets, are not small enough to fit in inch wide spaces and are not covered in fuzz. Now that we know WHAT ferret-proofing is, it is time to tackle the tough task of explaining HOW to ferret proof your home. Because each room in the house presents a unique set of hazards, and we want to avoid a single 16 page blog entry, the different rooms in the house will be covered by different blog entries.
