The Ferret

X.–HANDLING.

 

Ferrets should at first be handled by the back of the neck. The tail is

the natural handle for lifting up a ferret, in the same degree that the

ears are of a rabbit. The ferret should only be _lifted_ by the tail and

should be handled by the back of the neck. After a wild ferret has been

handled this way for some time he will get to be very tame and you can

handle him in any way. He will get so that he will hop up in his pen at

your approach and want you to play with and caress him, although it is

never advisable to give him your perfect confidence, such as putting him

to your face, etc.
