Ferrets are very playful, inquisitive animals and enjoy company. Almost anything can become a ferret toy, polythene bags, ping pong balls and so on. Foam rubber must be avoided and take care that the toy does not break up easily, pieces of the toy might cause a blockage if swallowed with possible fatal results. Ferrets like to play fight and sometimes can get carried away. Pictured is a young Skippy playing with a ball.
