How Much Does a Ferret Cost?

According to, a ferret is a “member of the weasel family and a descendant of the European Polecat.  Some other members of the weasel family are minks, otters, and the endangered Black-Footed Ferret.”  While ferrets are working animals in some countries, employed in ridding barms of pesky rodents, in the United States they are most often just lovable pets.  Ferrets do require a lot of exercise and free play and can be quite a bit more expensive harder to take care of than a domestic cat.  Most claim, however, that they are much more fun and active.
