You may have noticed a few new faces in pets corner! We’re happy to introduce our latest additions to Pets Corner, a new trio of ferrets! At the moment, you can find them in a hutch with Boris and Bandit, the two ferrets you may have met before. We’re letting the newcomers settle in and giving them a chance to get to know our boys before they all start living together.

Male ferrets are called hobs and females are called gills. Both Boris and Bandits are hobs, and the new youngsters are two gills and a hob! The collective noun for a group of ferrets is “business”, or historically a “fesnyng”. So hopefully if introductions keep going well, you’ll see our business of ferrets playing together soon!

The newcomers don’t have official farm names yet, but feel free to tweet your suggestions to us @mudchute! They also need sponsors to help support them! Find out how you can sponsor one of our animals here! More photos on our lovely new ferrets on the next page!

Bandit and Boris are curious about the newcomers.
