Dr. Karen and other friends,

I appreciate what you said. Ferrets are ferrets, they
should eat ferret food. I cringe to think what I
first fed Murphy - Special Kitty and the 8-in-1 that
Wal-Mart supplies in small boxes (not the good
8-in-1). Thank goodness he didn't eat that for very
long until I learned what was good for him.

Now he and the other ferrets eat a mix of Totally
Ferret, 8-in-1 Ultimate, Ferret Store brand, and
Special Kitty. Right now their current mix includes
all that plus Path Valley brand and Iams Kitten.

Murphy REFUSES to eat the others unless the Special
Kitty (or other kitten food) is mixed in. It actually
has good percentages of protein and fat and seems to
lack the artificial colorings, etc. It's at most 1/4
of the total mixure (and right now is only about 1/7
of it) so I personally don't see a problem with it.
My kids seem to like the variety and they are all very
healthy, active, and happy. I think that's what's

Hugs, Vicky :)
