Ferret explosion.....................
Fun with the fuzzies this evening!

This time of year is always the time to keep my eyes peeled for the jills starting to come into season. I've got two hobs, Pounce (who's been neutered) and Teddy (who hasn't!) First signs are always easy to spot...........Teddy starts to proudly show off his peanuts & turns into a complete hormone-driven muppet For their part, the jills start to encourage him by smelling really nice (to him, anyway!)

I have a seperate court for the boys until the jills are taken out of season. Teddy's due to go into the vet for a vasctomy shortly, so that'll save a bit of hassle next season as the jills won't need to be injected

Always fun & games when the court door's opened!



And it doesn't take long before they're at it  







Everyone wants a fuss  



But there's always one.................and it's always Teddy



My wee pal Bubble



Pounce working out his best plan for prolonging his freedom  



And the Dynamic Duo working out who's going where!



That's the boys seperated now, & I can breathe easy knowing that Ted's not likely to get the chance to create dozens of wee bitey furballs for this season at least

I'm sure that won't be a problem.........................

How many d'you want?    
Ferret explosion.....................
nice looking bunch.
just out of interest, how much does neutering a male cost in comparison to getting the jill jab?
Ferret explosion.....................
It depends on whether castration, or true neutering is required for the hob. I've been quoted around 60 for castration, as opposed to 90 for the vasectomy. The jill jabs are around 7 per jill I've got 8 jills though, so to me it makes perfect sense to get my hob vasectomised so he can bring them out of oestrus. And bearing in mind that the jab doesn't always take effect on the first go, it can be both a huge inconvenience and extra cost if it needs to be done twice.

I would've got Teddy done last year, but he was one of that springs kits & I judged he was just a little bit too young
Ferret explosion.....................
taysiderabbitter would probably lend you his vas hob
