Thanks so much! I’m lucky to have found such a pretty girl. And to answer your question, she was spayed and descented before I got her because it was the policy of the pet store. There is still a remaining smell, but it doesn’t bother me personally! A good way to reduce their musk is to wash their cloth bedding and change their loose bedding (if you use that) once a week. Descented ferrets don’t smell much on their own, but if they’re rolling around in their oils too much they will build up a strong odor!
Also make sure to bathe them every 3-4 weeks with baby shampoo or special ferret shampoo. Just be sure you don’t bathe them more than that since their skin is so sensitive and they can become very uncomfortable and itchy. For in-between baths take a damp paper towel and rub them down to reduce the oils on their fur.
There are also spritzes you can buy for in-between baths but I haven’t used them myself. http://www.ferret.com/grooming/sprays-and-spritzes/176/
It’s really a lot of fun to watch them running around in the house, so I hope you can find something that’ll work for you! c:
Aww, thank you! This made me smile so much, haha. I hope you can get your own fuzzball sometime soon!
