Marshall Ferret Octo-Play Sleep Sack Toy Review

The Marshall Ferret Octo-Play Sleep Sack Toy is an interactive toy and cozy bed for one or more ferrets. It’s designed with features ferrets love–places to explore, burrow, and hide. Ferrets can tunnel through the legs and peek out of the openings. When they get tired, they can curl up for a nap in the soft octopus body.

With 5 legs (not 8) and 11 openings, there’s lots of places to explore and hide.

The fact that this ferret sleep sack toy cannot be machine washed and dryed, could lead some ferret parents to not even consider purchasing it. But, I have found a solution that may be suitable. I wash these types of toys in a lingerie bag in the washing machine with warm water. I prefer to turn them inside out, but if that is not possible (like with the Octo-Play’s arms) I spray a stain remover inside.  I also put them in the dryer for a few minutes on low to get some of the moisture out so they dry faster.

Ferret Wheelchair Review–Skeeter Chair

Ferret Wheelchair Review–Skeeter Chair

Ferrets suffering from weak, injured or paralyzed back legs are often unable to move around much. They often need to be carried from place to place and are unable to explore the way ferrets naturally and enthusiastically do. This unfortunate state can lead to a ferret becoming unhappy and depressed.

Wheelchairs for dogs are becoming more commonplace, but what about wheelchairs for ferrets?

The popularity of ferrets and the desire many ferret parents have to give their ferrets the best possible life, has resulted in the creation of wheelchairs for ferrets.

The Skeeter Chair was designed for and named after a ferret named Skeeter. This ferret wheelchair allows disabled ferrets to move around more freely, using their front legs. They are able to enjoy investigating and exploring and even “running”, when they learn how fast the wheels can go. Continue reading Ferret Wheelchair Review–Skeeter Chair
