Ferret Proofing - the laundry room

Finally - the laundry room. The laundry room is a big NO FERRET zone - it is full of hazards and nearly impossible to make ferret friendly. Ferrets have been known to fall asleep in dirty clothes only to be thrown in the washing machine or climb into the dryer while their owners are busy transferring clothes from the washer to the dryer; often such laundry room capers end in serious injury or death on behalf of the ferret. It is not only the washer and dryer that pose serious risks to fuzzies however; the laundry room is full of hazards - laundry detergent can cause serious harm to ferrets if it is ingested, and let's face it, ferrets like to taste anything that they find on the floor. Other laundry room threats include holes for drier vents and dirt floors, making this room the most ferret-unfriendly room in the house. It is probably best for your sanity and your ferret's safety to keep this room blocked off with a big NO FERRETS ALLOWED sign on the door... if your ferrets complain about discrimination, tell them that it is for their own safety.

Good luck ferret proofing your home and remember - just when you think that your home is ferret proof, your fuzzy will point out a new hazard... the task of ferret proofing is NEVER done.
