I used to own 4 ferrets! and yes they will play with cat toys, my ferrets liked playing with a plastic bag. i would stick my hand in it and make noise on the ground with the bag and they would play around with my hand(in the bag). you could also try getting a piece of string and spinning it around or dragging it around, the ferret will probably follow it 🙂

I also have a Ferret. They are really fun and I hope u have fun too. I would play around with him/she lots. If there is any free room In the house, close all the exits so he/she can’t escape and he him run around a little giving him freedom. Also I would feed him maybe like every 1/2 hours. Depends how hunger he is.

Cat toys would work.

Also if you can take him out of the cage (if he’s in a cage) and put him in an enclosed area, they like to run around.

It depends on the ferret but my guy loves to play chase. He also loves jumping at towels and running after balls, just dont expect the ball to be brought back. Plastic bags with the handles cut ( and close supervision) are also fun. Cardboard boxes with treats hidden inside and tug or war with socks can be entertaining for a ferret.

He would looove cat toys as long as they aren’t rubber- which ferrets love to eat. The rubber will cause a blockage, so it’s better to avoid that! If he likes to get wet, you can fill your bathtub with enough warm water to let him swim around. If he doesn’t like it, take him out and put towels all over the bathroom floor. He’ll go crazy trying to dry himself and will hop all over the bathroom. Most ferrets have fun doing that. Just make sure that if the litter box is clean or not on the floor. Most ferrets, when wet, enjoy rolling around in their litter box. Good luck!

Ferrets will pretty well find anything you offer them amusing. Cat toys, toilet paper rolls, your feet. See some info at Today’s Pet for ideas.
