Made my baby a hand-made sweater. :) This is my first attempt at making animal sweaters by crochet... It was a bit big on him, haha. Oh well, I'll make it better next time!

Haha, I was actually thinking of making him a reindeer outfit with a hoodie for the antlers!

It would be very cute! I'd like do that for my Morphy, but he's impossible to train... DX

No way! All animals are capable of being trained! :3 Just different ways with different levels of patience are required... If you'd like, I don't mind helping out. :D

Well... seems interesting :D I want to do a little attempt before, but's not a bad idea :)

It's up to you! :D Unless you don't take your ferret out regularly than I think you'd be fine without him being trained (Besides vet trips).

So cute! Did he tolerate it when he is awake too? Mine hate the harnesses, so I would think they wouldn't like to wear clothing. But this little guy looks like he's nice and cozy.

Yes, he was fine. He fell asleep while wearing it, haha. Mine hated it too and I believe lots of ferrets do as well, you just have to train them to get used to it. Mine acted like he was dead when he had his harness on, I had to train him; give him a treat every time he moved. That motivated him to move around and realize it was actually a good thing! Since he was used to having something on him, he was okay with having the sweater on.

He looks very cute with it on. We never tried the treat thing with the harness, so maybe we'll need to see if that works. Ours didn't play dead, they just kept moving backwards and backing out of it!
rlffud-94's avatar
Oh, did you perhaps have a leash on it?
Wolfyone's avatar
We do, but we never even got a chance to use that. They hated the harness so much.
rlffud-94's avatar
That might be why. Try first getting them used to the harness on them. When you put the harness on, give them a reward (I use treats on most occasions) for being good with the harness on (Such as no thrashing), and then reward them for every small step they take when they have the harness on. That way, it will motivate them that if they move, they will get a yummy treat! I recommend for the last step that they take, to make it long (Maybe about a 1m or more walk) and their reward will be having the harness taken off. :) That's how I got my boy used to it.

Thanks for the suggestions. We'll have to try it!

Just putting a collar or harness on my babies and they act like they are paralized and that I am totureing them. How did you get Him in that adoable sweater? So cute!
rlffud-94's avatar
Haha, I'm not surprised! I think lots of ferrets don't like harnesses, collars, anything on them really. Ramsey, my ferret, acted like he was paralyzed as well. I got him used to the harness by teaching him it was a good thing: Giving him a reward whenever he moved. After a few days, he was fine. So when I did put the sweater on him, he was fine. :)
