If so, there are a few things to keep in mind. Ferret Proof Your Cleaning Supplies Just like in the kitchen and in the laundry room, you must relocate your cleaning supplies. Ideally, you can place them in a locked cabinet or above the sink. You should also place your plunger and toilet scrubber above the toilet, instead of behind it. All of our ferrets love to chew the rubber plunger and lick the toilet scrubber. Yuck! Ferret Proof Your Toilet Close Your Toilet: A toilet is a very dangerous trap to an animal as curious and tiny as a ferret. If they fall in, they are not big enough to jump out like a cat. Create a new routine in your home that includes always closing the toilet lid when you are done using the bathroom. You can also create a sign to remind guests. Drain Your Bathtub: A full bathtub is just as dangerous as a toilet. Similar to a toilet, your ferret cannot jump out of a bathtub once they fall in. Never leave a full bathtub unattended. Check Your Bath Mats: Bath mats are tasty! Or at least they are, according to your ferrets. Bathmats are often lined with a *chewy* rubbery back that make them irresistible to ferrets. If your ferret ingests this rubber backing, they could suffer from an impaction and need to go to the vet. We recommend replacing your bath mats with 100% fabric rugs.
