What should the next family should know about Blanco: Like all ferrets, Blanco needs lots of attention and play time. He loves being chased and hiding, so beware of possible hiding spots! Blanco is trained to use the bathroom on puppy pads and goes about 5-7 times a day. During play time Blanco does tend to nip. Also, if he doesn't get enough exercise/play time with you, he will start clawing at the cage door. Blanco will be rehomed with a Ferret Nation 3-story cage, bedding, hammocks, feeding bowls, water bottle, and other accessories like puppy pads, etc.
