Fan I Bot-Ab Out Google

Welcome!! Ladies and Mental Men.

My name is Ferret Biting.

I don’t know much about my Surname except my ancestors made a very weird Temple. I will tell you about it later.

I am an Internet marketer. I make K-rappy websites.

I hardly use my own content. I pay someone else to write it or copy from other places that Google cannot Index.

Actually when I made my first site on car gun safe there was not a single native or otherwise site on gun safe let alone car gun safe because of its uncertain and or apprehensive nature. It had search volume though.

Only few people like Tobias were researching on the effectiveness of small gun safe

Based on the available knowledge I just reviewed all of them that were present at that time excluding those that were claimed to be compromised.

Suddenly the niche exploded with reviews site by non native IMs that basically just copied me and expanded to all kinds of gun safe.

But it also led to more research and better knowledge of the niche by capable people and also improvement from my side.

Similarly when I got my first link from Wikipedia on gun safe article there was everybody adding there link as valuable recourse.

I had to frequently remove them and add better resources to limit them.


Ferret biting

One Big limitations of the BIG G in current state.

Cannot claim the normal or literal keyword as Brand name. The I don’t see any reason for google to advice against link building because a brand keyword is more exploitable for spam(in Google’s dictionary) links.

They advice for brand able domain because they want to limit the listings of micro niche keywords because they make more money with AdSense that way.

Yeah they say that exact match domain was being abused but i don’t think so. I mean if some one searches long tail keyword they are more susceptible to click the exact match domain then their Ads.

I don’t think  Spencer haws of niche pursuit who owned multiple exact match sites and got his Adsense account banned for this reason was making fluff sites.

Now if it is normal keyword it has made kind of compulsory to make the content as verbose as possible for quality.

Yeah it may relatively not be a big issue but its against freedom of expression from a blogger perspective. Don’t you think.

I mean even one line can be enough to say something and even a book can be less to explain other thing. One word may mean something in one context and different in other (Ex language, Industry, etc).

I was struggling through these question when one day through a ferret’s Email I came to know of a software called Video Traffic Genie. It basically finds videos on Youtube that have expired domains in Description.

Why not use existing traffic that leads nowhere plus an existing nofollow backlinks in profile.

I used it to find many videos and registered many domains. They ranged from Ortho doctors to Bedbugs to Gardening to Stretch marks creams and ferretbiting.com

I did not got much traffic but for some reason but for some reason I kept this domain ie ferretbiting.com registered and threw some content from Archive.org.


Is google really the best search engine?

The answer is NO. In fact it may the most rudimentary Search engine like the state in which politics is but it is the most popular.

The problem is not many people know about IM. And those that do are like media persons explaining about politics. Its rudimentary if not bad.

You see Ferret means to search for something. Ferret also means a thief. In that respect Google is the biggest online ferret.

It has always come to bite other ferrets IM with its algorithmic updates.

You see Google or its algorithm is the main Pet all IM like to train for their brand or websites. They get in Ferret mode to search for various things they can put together. They give various things for Google to play with and if google likes it  rewards it.

But it also does mass deindexing and updates which can turn may be rare but establish or new businesses upside down.

Google is a bot. Bot have limitations. Only a marketer can tell you what all limitations the big G can have.

I believe it is because google(The Company not its Search algorithm) try to pet IMs instead of letting them play. Let the ferrets play. This is because ferret are relatively very intelligent.

Because as I have seen all its algorithm want is some social proof and engagement which are inter related to like your sites. But to reach there some SEO is required at least to second page.

Backlinks must be the last priority(weightage) to improve rank in Googles algorithm to maintain or improve rank according to google but it rarely is.

Googles Authority metric(Page rank) is dependent on do follow.

Popularity metric(Brand recognition) is dependent on no follow.

It may be opposite too but it doesn’t matter because the strategy IM use is the same.

If it is balanced along with anchor text ratio which is dependent on niche you rank.

Make nofollow links from PBNs (your own niche sites because other may get deindexed #ferretbiting) and social media.

Make dofollow links from good guest posts and you will rank.

This is because one IM do not want to link to a competitor.

But it is so much wastage of resources.

Panda, Penguin, Rank manipulation patent should be meant for abnormal ferrets. For other a simple training of right and wrong is enough. Ferrets are good pets.

Backlinks should come in naturally but that hardly happens.

Why are there then ten totally independent results on search page when they all speak the same thing. I mean if backlinks is the backbone bone of Google algorithm then why the most relevant blog seems to shy away from giving it and google is doing nothing in this regard. Its time to wake up ferret.

If the first result is factually most correct or relevant and authority for the subject what is the use of other results.

See there is no absolute truth but we close in on something. Why not link to our competitors with your own views and opinion about their content. I mean let the Google and people be the judge of which site to spend more time on or buy more products from.

There are so many SEO blogs. All teach the same thing which is not at all needed. Its like working for Google. Google itself has all the content and Quality guidelines. It is quite explanatory for humans but making a BOT take care of it by coding it as a rule and apply to all people in general is damaging to honest and novice IMs or small business that don’t have online or offline advertising budget as I have heard multiple stories with Google Update.

See  it makes Internet marketers as Google’s ferrets which is the Alpha ferret, because one of the main Job of IM is to search or to ferret for terms that are not under the prejudice of google Algorithm. Google is a Bot. IMs are not Are they ??


Black Hat SEO

Abnormally/Unnaturally inflating a site that will give quick and high returns.

Creating PBNs or buying links by mathematically estimating their ranking capability.

It came into picture with Google only favoring only big and established businesses but it is totally against there Motto to not be Evil. If I make something my motto I should most probably be having the tendency to forget it.

So you either have to be purely money minded or Google’s Pet. If it did not helped me but helped others in the same niche then the main or the Alpha ferret is behaving abnormally for lack of supervision.


Advice for beginners

Here is how I  to do things.

(Some Internet marketing Slang alert.)

Why would I build PBN when I can link with my main sites.

Easiest free backlinks is social backlinks. Real and not Bot one. Ex Reddit Facebook Wikipedia Pinterest etc.

It doesn’t matter what content is You can always improve it with simple changes.

It may be a simple Paint Job or Presenting the same old BS in different way which is most interesting for that content.

See I like to read and sketch I don’t like writing like I am doing right now.

So instead

I became frequent Wikipedia editor and made few links from Wikipedia.

I dropped all PBN sites.

I went to relevant SM sites. Reddit, Facebook, Pinterest. Start making relevant post and engaging with users.

I don’t own ferret so I will not say that this piece of content that have on this site is professional advice. I have made it as a instrument to tell you about internet marketing without having to run a separate blog.

I have also bought simpleferretcare.com for literal meaning of the Keyword . This domain was once a very profitable click back product site.


Types of sites 

There are many IM who tell you the technical side- like Niche pursuit or psychological side of things like Alex Becker. (He has closed his blog.)

No body teaches the economic side of things-a game of Demand and supply. Online shopping sites or product launchers depend on IM for creating demand.

Some abuses this authority to sell whatever they can find profitable (ex-Google).

All other successful IM more or less copy Google strategy.

Review sites

To sell something directly you have to rebrand it otherwise what is the use of shops. Everyone can directly buy

That’s where review sites make entry. They review various items under a common domain which is essentially rebranding things. I am only telling this so if you have a review site you know what exactly it is that you do.

Similar is with the E-commerce site or drop shipping site. You are creating demand of an otherwise non essential item by targeting people in sync with your site to a required product of your choice because there is a supply of it.

So choose your brand name wisely.

Content Site-

If your content is more eye opening than the content already present on first 10 result of google you don’t need any advice.

Otherwise connect two seemingly unrelated topics under one domain name and promote the hell out of it.

An online review is just a Re-view of the same product.

Online information on the other hand is mostly facts are truths. Wikipedia is considered the best source for information. You probably can’t or won’t like to be Wikipedia as it is not run by one person.

So presenting the same content on your own domain has three component to it.

Branding – Choosing a domain name has a lot to do with people expectation about your content.

Social proofing Social backlinks or Engagement to make it interesting to the targeted or even non targeted audience.

Marketing – SEO should be given least important if you are not a psycho. Most important is Engagement on your Site. That is more than enough for Google to recognize your Site.

You can do stuff like domain redirection or backlink building. But remember you are doing it for humans not Bots. So choose a domain that sounds like your voice. Or build backlinks that make some sense to your Site or blog.

This is because all other links will be negatively affecting your psyche and are very Slow. You can do other stuff in that time.

I find it really stupid building backlinks so I only get those links that and I can derive some meaning from if not real visitors.

Best place you can get links from is your own domains but only when I feel it make for a relevant or meaningful experience for the visitor for the original content that he was searching (Ferreting).


There are other type of marketing as well like email, Forum Social media (Youtube). But they all are secondary and fall under Blogging in general.

Blogging is cool if you can stuck to one domain and write fluff about everything.

An authority Blog more or less is a News Site or personal philosophy blog.

But a good content is inch wide and Mile deep which make relatively thin micro Niche Site more preferable than thick one.

So a better approach would be to find topic that is somewhat controversial and instead of debating make it reassuring.

Or a most Boring thing into most weird thing on the Planet.

Panda update Penguin update Only to scare the employee ferrets.

The only work around I have found is Branding. A name that even first time visitor will remember because of the type of content and the way it is presented.


Now coming to the scraped content. I don’t remember where I got it from Some expired domain. See I am being completely honest here which takes Guts and coincidently in my native language is also called Pet. Ferrets are silly!!!

I could have written it myself. But all this is pretty informative for the term.


How can I improve it.

See I like to sketch and writing is most abstract form of drawing.

A drawing enables to see the context first (picture) and then other things like sound, color and depth in our head.

Writing produces sound first then we pay attention to the font Size color Style meaning etc.

So same piece of content can have different effect if presented differently.

Can you see the drawing made through these texts.

Let me tell you few things.

The Theme is White(Pure intent). All the Blog links is on the Left. (Mostly Ignored by right hand) and they are very short and concise because right brain do not have a voice.

The underlined theme of this blog is dark (Abnormal behavior of Pets or exotic Pets).

So I changed the Theme to Internet marketing which is totally different. So now people’s expectation with the blog has changed. If you are a ferret I hope I have made you a little bit more open to the Ugly side of things that are only characterized by avoidance and unnecessary debate otherwise.


Now to the ferret biting.

I don’t know why a ferret would behave so abnormally.

All I know is if perception is a bitch it can bite. So make sure it is a good bitch or stay away.

All animals bite. But sometimes like in south park’s funny Bot things can become awkward.

Now to the Temple.

There are many theories but I think the most important one was Economy. In a dwindling economy with money but no demand or confidence to spend one can easily get distracted. So why not place all that distraction outside of a temple.

The art work is open to multiple interpretation-mostly derogatory. But inside the Temple there is no such art work enabling people to choose in chaos. Do I need to tell you that procreation is fundamentally linked to economy. At such times most of the ideas will fail but because no one will ask or tell you anything. The secret is to keep going and transform your worst distraction to best ideas.

Happy The wally

 

Many Heights Season Pie

The only way to stop ferret biting is to spread awareness about Ferret biting on SM. If not checked it causes serious damage to infants(Intro on li) who are not at par with these unchecked ferrets.

Because Ferrets lack education like Humans(Intro on li) they don’t know that what tastes good is not always Good. So they need to be checked to avoid damage to the Future. Ferrets are good pets if their owners are alert to this fact. So using Ferret technologies to persuade the Ferret owners is quite effective.

This way their owners love to use their ferrets for better things instead of rudimentary things like hunting or damage to other owners personal space.

So here is a list of Blah Blah I have made that will make Pen Elope Cruise open her warm whole for you(Intro on li).

Best Shopping sites in India-Pet Role Economy !!

Economy of a country depends on education and wholesome learning of people of that country.

So stupidity and idleness is a roadblock.

No one wants to talk about economy because it does not have a visceral appeal like religion or War.

But economy plays an important role. Think of economy as a collective mental health of a population.

So a country GDP are indicators of where that health is going or the actual health of the population.

Economy is a direct function of education and wholesome knowledge of the world.

So any kind of single mindedness is harmful for economy especially with persons in power.

For Ex- Mindless Consumerism in America or Forced Communism In Soviet Union.

There are two ways to increase a countries economy.

1 Change reality- Required for developing World.

2 Change perceived value of reality- Required for developed world.

But it looks like its just the opposite.

If reality is much worse than perception one should improve reality and vice versa.

Also World Economy cannot be measured accurately with GDP or GWP. This is because no one buys from Earth.

Right now because of geopolitical instability being a major concern and a occasional apprehension of Nuclear War the amount of Gold mined is somewhat how we measure world Economy with amount of Gold mined being inversely proportional to Economy because if you see it is a useless activity.

80% of Gold is converted into jewelry which people buy more for asset value rather than aesthetic value.

To reverse it we need to go back to our roots when Gold in India at least was of great aesthetic importance because of the artistic labor that went to create it.

Gold was useless in closed lockers so making jewelry of it was a good economic activity.

But in those days people would steal Gold for food but not vice versa.

Do you see – Food or Energy had more importance than Gold.

Nothing has changed today and we are still energy deficient for sustainable future and our only long term solution is to search on other planets.

And how far we are in that direction is how we should measure the world Economy.

A direct result of that would be lowered cost of Gold and Military equipment’s which is how we should measure the state of world economy.

A Quick Review of some of the Technical terms in Economics.

Celebrities- They are thermometers of Society so they need extra financial security at the absence of which they depend on Happy The Wally !!

Following terms are from this Video.

Debt Burden increases when like every time, everybody forgot to see the Debt meter because no body knows about Economics.

Even rich feel the Debt burden because 1.) Emotions are contagious 2.)Debt is how we measure a Nation success. Nationalism is rising because of this collective debt burden which even rich want to contribute to.

An easy way is to fake it like it is happening today.

But Collective debt burden remains because even though we know the mechanics the state of people do not change or worsens.

Mental health is clear indicator of economics.

Increase in Psychotic illness means highly debt ridden which makes people make false fantasy of world because of their lack of financial knowledge.

You see Finance is  the only practical indicator of the state of the real world and since curiosity drives economy lack of curiosity towards economics will cause delay in preventing unhealthy curiosities which causes more harm than good.

GDP= Monetary value of all the goods and service produced.

GDP decreases because of lowered production capacity or decrease in price because of saturation or decrease in value in the world market.

Countries Economy are Relative to Dollar. This can be changed.

World Economy is relative to Gold value mined on Earth. This can also be changed.

Most Economist who have been to economic school are Pets of wealthy and promote their most established Theory to keep their status Quo even at the cost of economy which is the learning of economy itself which is like going on a meditation.

This is like the counter effects of Church or religion when it started working beyond its capacity.

Instead Economics can be made an important part of syllabus of all students. This is because finance is integral part of anyone’s psyche whether he learns about it or not. Watch this Video for more detail.

In India we have competitive Exam when group of students go on streaks of mediation(attention training) for a better future. Had that time spent with necessary focus on economics would have resulted in a more sensible outcome.

The curiosity that Politicians and Gurus create is for the benefit of their organization, coaching, spiritual or merchandise industry first and not necessarily for nation because they too only work as Thermometers in a Global Network.

Outside because of lesser population and social interaction people are more technology and science dependent which too cannot function independent of economy. It requires constant research but is done independent of the scope of economics.

Students and teachers have relatively no financial education  which can be started simply with just two simple things Gold and GDP(like match scores or something) and the reason for having monetary value to things is to measure our life’s success.

On internet Google has occupied a position of middleman between buyer and Seller. It has become the alpha ferret of all shopping ferret. It has adopted lots of Pets with AdSense to support its PC Valuable content Guidelines because all it wants is more self recognition.

This limits creative expression for niche marketers who works for creating demand for their niche products.

Natural Backlinks is a fiction.

PBNs are becoming penguin detectable and Unless you cross the threshold of Panda you are no rank worthy.

So what I have made here is most un anonymous PBN because that’s the only way I could find to save them and start from scratch.

In my Old Job The First Plant Boiler was scrap from Russia in 70s and is still working. The Whole company has established itself from that Plant.

Since celebrities tell the temperature only, most SEO experts unlike micro niche marketers are just Pets of Google’s Algorithm.

I think Google needs an update, A ferret update that helps small business trust their intuitions more than googles guidelines because Power without supervision is a recipe for Evil even if your motto is “Don’t be evil”.

Watch this Video. (Warning- Graphic !!)

Credit burden today remain unnoticed because no one has interest in economics not even psychiatrist. So a list of  Shopping Ferrets in India that Google own because they are performing Well but independent from the subjectivity of its Algorithm is more reality based.

Here is a List of Shopping Ferrets endorsed by various Ψ co Law Gist of the World.

As I said what drives Economy ? Curiosity. But is that choice healthy. Because Choice is related to Change in Society and change in curiosities.

The demand of fashion is high but that does not mean we have to conform to the demand if there is no need and kill our Natu re or our Futu re for it.

Similarly when buying Phone for style statement most of us will not use 80 % of the features of the Phone so why pay high price. You are suppose to be smarter than the smart phone Isn’t it so ?

Shopping is Lust. Buying is not.

Ferret Games

Ferrets love playing games! It’s a fact. Sure they can can be sleepy animals, but when they’re up and about they can be great fun and you’ll need to be creative to keep them entertained. So today I want to share with you a few fun ferret games you can play to keep them playful and happy.

So Let’s dive in and look at five ferret games that you and your ferret can have great fun with…

Ferret hand hunt

This is one of those cute little ferret games that you can play with the minimum of fuss. Grab a treat, let your ferret get interested in it, and put both hands behind your back. Hold it behind your back in one hand and quickly bring both back in front. Let your ferret sniff and play to work out which hand it is in. Give them a pat and a tickle when they get it right.

Ferret Lucky Dip!

Grab a large box of ping pong balls, tightly screwed up paper balls, or old rolled up socks. Now fill a bid tub (like a baby bath or garden bin up with them and hide some treats inside the tub. Let your ferret dive in and dig around and find his rewards!

 Ferret fishing for treats

Grab a stick like a piece of cane or bamboo. Tie a string to it and tie a treat to the other end (Like a ferret chew stick). Now you can dangle it in front your ferret, lead them around, and watch as they enjoy chasing after their favorite treat.

Hide and Go treat

Grab a load of hidey hole type of ferret friendly objects. This can include loo rolls, plastic tubing, roll nest, cardboard boxes and so on. Layout them to form a cluster of possible hidey holes, nooks and crannies to create a little ferret village. Now hide treats and watch as your ferret explores and searches for their playtime snack.

Ferret-ferret bounce-bounce

Ping-pong jump attack. This is one of those ferret games that some ferrets will absolutely love while others will take it or leave it. Grab a ping pong ball and get your ferret interested in it. Now bounce it up and down on a hard surface (wooden or tiled floor) and see your ferret jump, hop, and grab after the ball. Loads of fun.

Tuggy
This is the simple game of tuggy, you grab your ferrets favorite toy and then shake it in front of them, they will then grab onto it and start to try and pull it off of you, the game has begun! You can now play tug of war with your ferret, being gentle of course as they are only little!

Hide and Seek
Usually this is a game that just happens because your ferret is being mischievous! They love hiding and tunneling where ever they can, remember to be careful and not let them get where they shouldn’t!

Fetch
The idea with fetch is to start off with playing tuggy, then move onto throwing their toy, this helps a lot if their favorite toy is slightly smelly as ferrets do not have the best eye sight in the animal world, throw it slightly away from them and they will usually come back and start to try and play tuggy again!

Reverse Fetch
This game is a strange one, most ferrets do it, but if you give your ferret tiny little toys, sometimes they will take it off you then go and hide it, if you keep giving them little treats they could do the same as well, this game is great as you can find our their little hiding place which they think is oh so secretive!

Tummy Rubs
I love this game, if you have a really gentle docile ferret then you can slightly push them over on their back and rub their tummy, they love this, if you don’t have a gentle but playful ferret, you can pick them up and lie them on your arm like a baby, whilst keeping a good eye on the mouth area, then you can tickle there tummy whilst maintaining more control as the alpha ferret!

Chase!
Ferrets love chasing mom or dad, if you nudge them away a little using a toy then run off ferrets will mostly start to chase you out of curiosity!

Ferret Health

Ferret health is the most important aspect of ferret care, the healthier the ferret, the happier the owner, that is my philosophy anyway, I would rather have a healthy ferret than a cool cage or something else which is purely materialistic. Of course a decent cage goes into helping have a healthy and happy ferret.

If you are worried about ferret health when getting a ferret then remember that prevention is better than cure, meaning find yourself a ferret vet before you need them rather than when you need them, if something horrible does happen then knowing exactly where to go or who to call quickly is going to be very very important.

Ferret health can be helped by feeding them an excellent diet. For more information regarding this Go here.

You need to make sure they do not have anything dangerous in their cage, this can be extremely important because ferrets are so curious and can get caught in places they should not be caught.

Ferrets love to be curious and wander about into the worst places possible, so ferret proofing your room where they have been kept is extremely important.

Here are my top tips for ferret health.

– Find a ferret vet before you need one.

– Wash your ferret when needed.

– Always keep their cage and living area extremely clean.

– Provide them with an excellent diet.

– Ferret proof everything.

Using these top tips you can help to provide an amazing home for your ferret whilst keeping them extremely healthy.

Ferrets love treats and they are one of the few animals which can be over fed, they constantly need food so always remember to have their food bowl topped up at all times, they have such a quick metabolism that they will burn the food off almost instantly, unlike tortoises who have a metabolism of months!

A long with feeding a ferret correctly you need to make sure they always have water as well, they need water all the time so it is recommended to have a water bowl and a water bottle, if you can only have a water bottle ferrets can be trained to use a water bottle so it is no problem.

Remember not to have your ferrets out in the direct sun light as they do not cope well in directly sun light and can suffer from extreme sun stroke.

The final note is to always have fun with your ferret, a happy healthy ferret is the best pet anyone could possibly own!

How to train a ferret

So you are wondering how to train a ferret?

Well your ferret will rely on you for guidance as to what to do and what not to do so this is really important.

Think about like this, when you were little you would have had a parent or someone looking after you who would have informed you of what was right and what was wrong. How would you known that caring for animals and looking after them was a good thing rather than neglecting or ignoring them like other people do? You have to learn it somewhere right? Whether it was from someone else or through experience.

Well ferrets are exactly the same. Their mums will usually tell them the best way to do things and how to do them. Well guess what? You are now their mum, at least when it comes telling them where to go to toilet, how to behave, what not to bite and so on.

So when learning how to train a ferret there is an old field of psychology called behaviorism that has been used for years and years to teach animals how to behave that you need to be aware of. Behaviorism is a way of rewarding your ferret when they do something you want them to do, like going to toilet in their litter tray, and punish them when they do something you don’t want them to do. How this is important…

Punishment should not physically hurt your ferret. It’s a just a reminder not to do something. This may be a tap on the bum to get their attention, taking something away, or a strong verbal command such as ‘NO!’. And of course a reward might be a tickle, affection or treat.

Now sure animal trainers use behavioral techniques to train animals to do the most impressive tricks. However when considering how to train a ferret we’re mostly interested in helping your ferret to behave in a way that keeps them happy and healthy. This includes where to go to toilet so that it can be cleaned out easily, not to bite or nip so you can play and bond, and not to do things like chew wire cables.

Now the absolute key when it comes to how to train a ferret is…

Consistency

You have to be consistent! If you ferret does something that you want them to do or don’t want them to do you have to let them know it every time until they start doing it as a habit. If you reward or punish them sometimes and other times don’t bother they will often get confused and be unsure what it is you want. Also you want to reward or punish immediately your ferret behaves in a certain way. Leave it too long and they won’t know what they’re being guided to do. Being consistent is how to train a ferret.

Also it is important to note that some people won’t train their ferret as they feel guilty not letting them do what ever they want. This is really rather silly. You wouldn’t let a baby play with a knife just because they wanted to, and you shouldn’t let your ferret do something that will affect their health and happiness and your relationship with them in the long term.

Ferrets are naturally curious and love the outdoors, the best way to let a ferret wander about and have some fun is to get them a decent collar and ferret harness set. This set should be safe and comfortable whilst making sure the ferret has the least possible chance of escaping, some ferrets will be able to escape out of anything! I would highly recommend a ferret harness over a collar, but collars can be great to attach the ferret harness on to.

I love taking my ferret for a walk, so I have several harnesses which I use, each for a different ferret!

A ferret will easily find their way out of even the best harness / collar, they are so clever and if they can fit their head through a hole then they can get through it, this is where the problem with harnesses comes in, as you need to have the harness over their head to begin with.
One of the most important things when looking for a harness or collar is to check if it is safe for ferrets, you do not want to buy a harness or collar for a toy dog or something similar, it needs to be produced specifically for ferrets, that is a good rule to live by when dealing with ferrets, because they are such a unique and lovely pet. Ferrets will glady walk over the grass for a little while, but remember they are very prone to heat stroke so do not keep them in direct sunlight, which may be difficult when walking them outside, generally walking them near a fence or later in the day will be better for them as the sun will not be beating down quite as much. Ferrets love cosy things so try to get a harness that will make them enjoy wearing it, if they enjoy wearing it they will be less likely to try and get out of it!

A Harness and Collars can be a very difficult thing to purchase when you have your first ferret, here are a few key points to remember:

– Make sure it is produced specifically for ferrets.
– Get a safe harness or collar before a cool harness or collar.
– Try to think about the type of ferrets you have, if they are quick you might need a very secure harness, if they are lazy then not so much.
– Comfort is very important.
– Get one that the ferret will enjoy wearing, not what you will enjoy looking at.
– You can get a stylish harness once you have consider the previous points.

Ferret beds

Most adult ferrets sleep on average around 18-20 hours a day. Now that’s a lot of sleeping! So it’s really important that your ferret has the right choice of comfortable ferret beds to sleep and hide in. This often means having a standard bed as well as a ferret hammock.

Why do they need both? Well when you’re asleep on a hot sticky night you might kick the covers off of use a light blanket. If your room is cold and chilly you may find snuggle down and wrap yourself up to keep warm and cozy. The same hold true for ferrets.

It’s a good idea to we ensure there are two types of beds available to them in their cage. This way they can choose the place most comfortable for them to enjoy some refreshing sleep in. Ferret hammocks are essential for healthy sleeping patterns. If a ferret is uncomfortable while sleeping it disturbs their sleep and your ferret will not live a healthy life.

Lets take a look at the two types of ferret beds. One choice is a more standard ferret, known as a nap sack which lies on the floor of the cage and provides some extra warmth. Ferret beds are often great for longer sleeps.

However there is a second choice that we need to think about, known as a ferret hammock. A ferret hammock is suspended in mid air and provides a pocketed space, which allows your ferrets to enjoy a secure, partially open, comfy sleeping space. As you may now if you’ve been around the site for long, ferrets are very sensitive to heat, so ferret hammocks provide a cooler alternative to a full ferret bed. Ideal for when they’re napping and lounging around. Ferret hammocks come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials.

Now if you own more than one ferret then purchasing a large ferret hammock can be great. They sleep multiple ferrets at the same time and ferrets love snuggling together while sleeping. Some hammocks are flat looking others are boot shaped; other hammocks have a zip front to be adjustable in the size of the opening. Hammocks provide more area for a ferret to utilize. They can also be used as a safety feature that provide steps for the ferret to gain access to a higher level of the cage, and prevent long falls.

It is important to make sure that any ferret hammock or sleep sack purchased is machine washable to prevent the spread of disease. A tightly woven fabric is more durable and safe. If a hammock or ferret bed begins to fray or seams separate, you should remove it from the cage. Once a ferret hammock is damaged it becomes a hazard to the ferret. When purchasing a ferret hammock make sure the hardware provided is safe for your ferret. If the ferret hammocks you buy need special fixings that are not provided, make sure they do will not be harmful to your ferrets. .

It is a great idea to purchase both ferret beds and a hammock for your ferret. Ferret beds provide a warm, cozy place for those colder nights and longer sleeps. Ferret hammocks provide a safer environment, it put less pressure on the ferret’s body, places them in their natural sleeping position keeping them feel safe and happy, and it gives them a separate area to utilize for play.
