I don't know shit about ferrets, decided on rats instead of them, but that's the most adorable thing I've ever heard.

Define crying? Is it like a clucking noise (like a chicken) or is it like a squeaking?

In any case, if the ferret seems to be hurt or weak, best take it to the vet.

Speaking of ferrets. My roommate has a pair of shit-demons that have little difficulty squeezing between the bars in the shitty cage they have.

What's a good, cheap material I can slap onto the cage to keep them from getting out without going full ghetto and zip-tying cardboard to everything?

Preferably something that won't kill them if they try to chew through it or anything, though I wouldn't mind too much if the ignored rodents died.

What about sticking on some fine mesh chicken wire? Still lets light in and if it's got a fine mesh they can't get through it.

Not to risk downplaying a potentially serious situation, but ferrets sleep like the fucking dead. I've seen one sleep through yelling, screaming, and shaking, only to wake up immediately to the smell of food.

Sounds like good a plan as any. Now to get the guy to fork out some money to actually pay for his stupid pets.

What is it with rodent owners insisting on having a pet that smells like shit and piss and never wanting anything to do with it?

Rats/ferrets/etc.

I don't know a single fucking person that actually takes care of their fucking rodents.

Not that I have any strong feelings on the matter.

Very true. I've had trouble waking mine up at times. It can be concerning. They're very deep sleepers.

Ferrets are about as much rodents as dogs and cats are.
Why are people retarded

The other week I was visiting a friend who keeps ferrets - they are well kept, exercised and great fun to mess with, though as other people have said - when they sleep, they SLEEP! pictured is todd - he'd abnormally huge.

Not trying to be a master baiter or anything, and I know there's nothing inherently wrong with the ferrets.

But I'm having trouble understanding why I'm running into such a high volume of people who don't want anything to do with their shitty pets.

This is a picture of the bathroom they were keeping their ferrets in for weeks until they got a cage. Shit everywhere, there was even more behind the door and toilet. And it took them another two weeks to get a damn litterbox in the cage.

I eventually had to clean up everything my damn self because my roommate would rather play terraria than clean up after himself.

who the fuck gets an animal before he has basic conditions to take care of it? two weeks to get a fucking litterbox? my rat cage is homemade, you can find something to use as a litter box around the house, jesus. i'm guessing they're not litter trained, you have to take over the animals, even though you don't want to, just for the sake of living in a bareable place. fuck your roommate.
