Caution, Poisonous to Ferrets

While ferrets share many similarities with their wild ancestors, they lack many of their original instincts. For example, they have forgotten how to avoid poisonous plants on their own.

Ferrets are incredibly curious and are almost always hungry. If they get the chance, they’ll nibble on anything they walk past. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Grandpa’s armchair, your new dress, or the birthday cake. Unfortunately, the little rascals don’t know if something is poisonous for them. Some indoor plants can be fatal. Caution is also required in the garden and on walks. Some foods, while not toxic to ferrets, are still harmful.
