All these people are talking about how bad ferrets smell and what methods they use to control the smell but my gandalf doesn't smell at all and we don't use any odor eliminator. When we first got him he smelled horrible like the pet store and Tim bought this raspberry spray conditioning stuff but I've never used it and I've only given him two baths with soap since I've had him.
He really doesn't smell and definitely doesn't smell as bad as the gliders. He's a lot cleaner than the gliders too. If I could do it all over again I'd probably not have gliders and just have ferrets.
