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, in the United States they are most often just considered lovable pets.  Ferrets require a lot of exercise, free play and can be harder to take care of than a domestic cat.  Most claim, however, that they are much more fun and active.
