    Promising review: "I have tried so many different harnesses that my guys have been able to slip out of. Finally, I have found one that is comfortable and sturdy enough to go outside with. Both of my two ferrets wear these with no problem. Very satisfied, I just ordered a second one so I can take them both at the same time!" —S. Wimberly

    Price: $11.99+ (available in two colors)

    Promising review: "This product works well for my ferrets. They constantly dig in their water dishes, so their water needs to be refilled/cleaned on a regular basis, and this works great. Easy to take the metal dish out while leaving the plastic attached to the cage. So far they haven't been able to detach the bowl from the cage either, which is a huge plus." —JenB

    Price: $15.99 for a set of two

    3. A treat variety pack that'll have your ferret begging for more. This set comes with soft, chewy morsels in chicken, raisin, peanut butter, banana, and bacon flavors.


    Promising review: "My ferrets beg for these treats. They love all flavors. I have used the treats to teach them to come to me when I call them." —Mel M

    Price: $21.08 for five bags

    4. A no-drip water bottle to add to your ferret's cage. This bottle can hold up to 32 ounces of water and is BPA-free!

    Promising review: "I can't begin to tell you how many 'leak-proof' small animal water bottles I've bought over the course of seven years. They all leak, some a lot more than others, but they always make a huge mess. This bottle DOES NOT LEAK. I'm so excited, I'm thinking about getting a second one, just in case the first one breaks. The company says they'll replace, but what would my guinea pigs drink from in the meantime??? I'm very impressed so far. I truly hope they've finally solved the water bottle problem." —A.Y.

    Price: $11.95

    5. A fun hammock that'll ensure your ferrets get the proper rest they need, but in style. These hammocks come in colorful, fun patterns and promise to keep your ferret feeling super cozy.

    Promising review: "My ferrets instantly investigated the inside of this hammock and rolled on the soft fabric. All three now sleep in it together. I would buy again." —C.leigh

    Price: $11.99 ( available in three colors and in two prints)

    6. A two-in-one deodorizing shampoo, because although your ferrets might hate bath time, this shampoo might make it more bearable. This formula is tear-free, is made with soothing aloe vera and moisturizing jojoba oil.

    Promising review: "This is a very large bottle at an extremely reasonable price. I couldn't believe how soft, fluffy, and moisturized my ferrets' fur was after bathing them both in it. They're both on the lighter side; they almost looked white! Absolutely beautiful, and no more scratching! It's tear-free, so there was no problem washing their faces, and they didn't seem to mind playing in the bubbles it created one bit. It's going to last quite a while, but I absolutely love and recommend this brand and product!" —OverIt

    Price: $4.85 (also available with Subscribe & Save)

    7. A ferret swimming pool since summer is coming — why not let your ferret enjoy the wonderful weather? Bonus: if you don't want to fill this with water, you can fill it with toys and let your ferret play around in it.

    Promising review: "I have four ferrets, and they love this. I had to rig up one of their flexible tubes for ease of use with the girls because they are smaller, but they all love it. On a warm day when we put the pool out for them, it is the first thing they all go to." —Cindi

    Price: $28.40

    8. A pack of mini shoe toys to add to your ever-growing collection of ferret toys. These small shoes are made out of metal-free material, come in multiple colors, and are made in the USA.

    Promising review: "My ferrets love dragging these little shoes everywhere! They're lightweight and have held up well after a few washings." —Shanda

    Price: $8.99

    9. A soft fleece octopus tunnel toy that'll be your ferret's new favorite thing. This red octopus has 11 holes which make for a fun play session or a great place for your ferret to curl up and nap.,

    Promising review: "I think it's cute, and my ferret loves it! I had to put him inside the first time, but once he figured out how to get inside, he plays for a while — in the mouth, out one leg, runs around, climbs back inside, does it all over again five times around! It's fleece and very warm, a great place for a ferret to curl up and take a nap after all the wild playing. I even have a couple of kittens who want to climb in and play along; thank goodness they don't fit! All in all, it's been a good addition to our collection of toys. I know my ferret likes it (and it doesn't hurt that it's cute, either!)." —tattered_focus

    Price: $22

    10. A bag of digestive support, starch-free dry food for your ferret so they can live their best life without tummy troubles. This food has natural flavors and promises to taste super yummy.

    Promising review: " I adopted a ferret a few months ago and wanted only the best for her. After studying all the food I could find, I'm glad I bought this one. She loves it. I switched her within a week of adopting. We do not want any digestive problems coming up when it can be avoided by feeding the correct food. My ferret listens for when I get her feed bucket to refill her bowl. She almost jumps out of her cage to get her food. She loves it." —Fam Bam

    Price: $24.79 (also available with Subscribe & Save)

    11. A pack of two sports ball toys that'll keep them entertained for hours. These soft and cute toys are designed to be the perfect size for your fluffy bestie.

    Promising review: "After I noticed one of my ferrets sneezing a lot with her old bedding, I searched high and low for the most dust-free bedding I could find, and this was it. She has not had any issues sneezing at all since buying this, so I have been very relieved. Anyone who has ferrets knows that they smell, but this bedding absorbed the smell completely without locking the smell in their cage." —Taylar

    Price: $11.99 (also available with Subscribe & Save)

    13. A two-story ferret cage with ramps and multiple levels to keep your ferret busy all day long. This cage comes with three platforms, two plastic ramps, a hammock, a water bottle, a food dish, and a litter pan. And did I mention it comes with tunnels?

    Promising review: "I love this cage and so does my ferret! She has so much room to play and be occupied when she isn't free-roaming. It was relatively easy to put together once you figure out it is rectangular, not square! I can easily feed her and change her water. It's also easy to clean her litter box and any other messes without being hard on my back. It's also big enough I can get another ferret and they will have plenty of space for both of them. Overall I highly reccomend this cage!" —Veronica smith

    Price: $234.63

    14. A small pet tunnel that'll satisfy some of your ferret's ~natural instincts.~ This tunnel is made from expandable, durable, and stain-resistant plastic.,

    Promising review: "Our ferrets play in this tunnel a lot. It stays in whatever shape you put it in, so we can constantly change up what shape they run through. They really love when we cut a hole in a box and put the end of the tunnel in. Most surprising, though, is what a great, cheap kids' toy this is, lol. My kids have spent hours playing with this tunnel, both with the ferrets and completely on their own. I sometimes need to remind them that the tunnel belongs to the ferrets and that they need to give it back! All around, great money spent! Update June 2019: We've owned this tunnel for over four months now, and the ferrets (and the kids!) still love it!" — silkyhorse

    Price: $8.99 (available in six colors)

    15. A ~bunkbed~ hammock, because don't your ferrets deserve it? This fuzzy hammock is long-lasting, machine-washable, easy to clean, and easy to install. So seriously, what's stopping you from picking this up?


    Promising review: "My ferrets love these hammock beds; I bought two. They are soft, and they love to snuggle in them. I highly recommend it. They have been better than any other hammock I have purchased for my ferrets." —Lisa

    Price: $12.95

    16. A ferret harness with a bow to keep your ferret looking super fancy on your walks. This fun accessory promises to be easy to put on and it's made from breathable fabric!

    Promising review: "My male ferret and I love this cute harness set. The velcro adjustments work well and there is just enough padding in the harness itself to be comfortable for him. Most of all, he looks so handsome in his ‘tux’!!" —Dawn Redman

    Price: $8.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors)

    17. A corner litter box, because your ferret could probably use a new one. Although not the most exciting purchase, this litter pan locks into place and is made of odor-resistant, durable, and stainless plastic.

    Promising review: "My ferret just loves to make me clean, and she has a specific corner she loves that's not her litter box. Anyway, this specific item was perfect because you can tighten the litter box to the cage, and as much as she tries to scoot it out of the way, she can't and is forced to use it. Solved all my life problems. I love it. If you have a similar problem, buy it!" —Rodrigo Lopez

    Price: $11.99
