BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Our pet of the week comes to us from the Bangor Humane Society.
Annabelle is a 5-year-old ferret. Ferret's can live upwards of 10 years.
Ferret's do like to roam around. It is preferred to get a cage with multiple levels to allow the animal to climb up and down.
Diets are very strict for ferret's. They cannot eat fiber as it upsets their stomach. There is specialized ferret foot and treats that can be purchased for their diet. Ferret's can also eat dry cat or kitten food.
Just like cats and dogs, ferret's do require annual vaccines. As with any older animal it is important Annabelle maintain a relationship with a vet since she is considered middle age.
