Hi Jill,

I don't have ferrets, but they fascinate me. :) I know Kerry does, and she'll probably be by soon to answer your questions better. In the meantime, though, with the weepy eyes and sneezing, I think I'd be concerned. And probably would want to check with a vet who has experience with ferrets.

Another possible resource would be a ferret rescue group, if you have one in your area.

When id suggest buying a snuggle safe heating pad ( available at any petstore) and insert into a ferret bed and sow the opening , make sure there is no way the ferret could get to the Heating pad, otherwise if possible before al this bring your ferret to the vet. and move it to a warmer room, and prvide more warm ferret furniture (tents, est..)
