Subject: [ferrethealth] Enriching ferret play time hard to do?!

Gerald is right. Your question opened an excellent discussion. We all have our experiences, knowledge, thoughts and opinions. As long as everyone is open to stating what they think and have experienced without anomosity everyone can benefit from the discussions. This line has taught me that perlite is bad to have around ferrets. I'm still waiting to hear if there is a high frequency of illness from dirt/soil. We can all or most all gain from any line of discussion. I thank you for asking.

I didn't take your comment or question as a can of worms. You asked a logical question and you got a variety of answers. It is your choice as to what you decide on for a dig box. As far as enrichment for your ferrets, Plain old empty cardboard boxes are entertaining to the ferrets. Tape it shut and cut a door and some half dollar size windows opposite the door for a sleep box or a playhouse. Mine push golf balls through the house. Have three ten foot plastic drain pipes for their use. Paper bag, plastic bags, krinkle sacks etc. It boils down to what you think is best for them and you.

I can't believe what a can of worms I opened in asking about the
potting soil! wow. Needless to say, I have since removed the soil
from the dig box (they only used it once for about 20 min) because I
tend to air on the side of caution.
