When you make a commitment to bring a new pet into your home, you want to make sure that once it arrives, there”s a place where it will feel safe and comfortable. Sometimes that means putting a little extra effort in to making sure their space is just right.
This young man was about to get a brand new ferret. Where would a ferret be comfortable, you ask? The relaxing escape that he built for his new, furry friend seems like the ideal getaway. Check it out!
He found this cabinet on Craigslist. It would work perfectly.
He began by adding a back so that the space was fully enclosed.
He installed some shelves for the little guy to climb around on.
His next step was to build a custom screen door. He wanted to be able to put the ferret inside, but still be able to see him.
He attached hooks so that the door could be locked.
To make the climbing shelves more inviting (and practical), he painted them and covered them with glue for added water resistance.
It was time to bring her home for the first time.
And here”s the finished product!
Looks like she loves her new home.
I guess I never wondered what a proper ferret home would look like, but this seems to be the ideal spot for this little girl. She couldn”t be happier tucked in with her stuffed animals!
