You will never laugh so hard as when your little one plays "snake in the grass". It is the cutest thing to see. They slither, they slide, they pounce. In fact, they do about everything but walk when playing out in a grassy area. And should a leaf or small twig "accidentally" fall in their path, you might be surprised to see a bit of that old-time hunting instinct take over when your ferret jumps to get that doomed leaf (although they have no idea what to do when they get it! But boy, do they enjoy getting it!). Give your ferret some time to play in the sunshine, and you will see a very happy ferret.
And Ferret Pans
Also, as well as checking for other critters that might pose a threat, ask if the yard was recently fertilized or not. A little bit of lawn fertilizer recently applied to a lawn that your whole ferret's little body is slithering through, could be applying a deadly coating of pesticide all over his or her fur! The last thing you want this wonderful outing to bring is a sick or dead friend the next day. And be extra alert to dangers in parks.
Always ask about the environment you will be playing in. A few questions now can save your pet from harm.
