Just a note on some of the recent diets mentioned here. Take a
good look at the ingredients list of the cat/kitten foods you are
feeding your ferrets. Deli cat, in particular, is loaded with
artificial colors and preservatives - I won't recommend it for cats,
let alone ferrets. Ferret foods are expensive, but much better for
the health of your animals in the long run. So far, most of the
foods mentioned are on my "don't list" for any animal.
Just my 0.02, to start a controversy I'm sure,
