Hiya! I'm new to the forum, but I thought I'd share what my boyfriend and I came up with for our ferrets to dig in. We have two boxes for variety since our ferts get bored VERY easily.
- One is a canvas storage bin
full of plastic easter eggs (the kind you put candy in) from the dollar store. We avoided the coated ones that looked metallic, just in case said coating could flake off and get swallowed. They like to bury themselves and fall asleep which is fine, since they wont suffocate. And I occasionally find plastic eggs hidden behind the sofa. XD
- The other dig box is a giant plastic storage bin
that we filled with Carefresh pet bedding
from the pet store. We keep this box closed and only let them play in it with supervision. When we got our boys from the pet store, they were living on this kind of bedding and we noticed bits of it in their poop. Granted, it was getting kicked into their food bowl and they slept in it as well, but still. Better safe than constipated.
