Ferret Cages - Keeping Your Ferret Cage Clean

For many young people, a ferret is a great way to learn about taking care of another living thing.

Part of the responsibility of being the owner of a ferret is to ensure your pet has a clean living space. Here are some pointers on keeping your ferret cage clean.

The first thing to remember is that a ferret is living, breathing animal. That means care should be taken in the types of solutions that are used to keep the ferret cage spotless. While there is no need to purchase any type of special cleansers for the cage, it is important to stay away from a number of the products that are on the market.

Avoid anything with harsh chemicals such as ammonia or bleach. Your ferret is by nature inquisitive and will use both the senses of smell and taste to check out what you have done to the ferret cage.

Disinfectant sprays should also be avoided, as they contain chemicals that can also adversely effect your ferret. The best solution for cleaning your ferret cage is to use a little plain old dishwashing liquid. Run some warm soapy water into the sink or the bathtub and scrub each portion of the cage, just as is you were washing dishes.

Be sure to rinse the cage thoroughly when you are done. While there is little in dishwashing liquid to harm your pet, all traces should be washed off. Dry the cage with a clean cloth.

Along with washing the ferret cage thoroughly, also make sure you pay attention to any toys or exercise wheels you may have in the cage. Scrub and rinse them just as you did the cage and dry them with a clean dry cloth.

Remember, any pet is a responsibility and a great opportunity to learn how to take proper care of other pets. By making sure your ferret cage is kept clean on a regular basis, you will ensure having a happy ferret that will entertain you for a long time.
