Many people nowadays are aware of clothing their pets. Dogs, cats and ferrets dress up in clothes for walks or outings or even when at home. Ferrets in particular, deserve pampering. You can buy special ferrets clothes at stores or online. Better still, you could stitch clothes at home with little effort.
Before you start, keep in mind that you are creating the dress for a furry animal with bouncy movements. Take care that the dress does not stop free movements of the ferret or otherwise he may start wrestling with it.
Try to be creative and stitch clothes that fit him well and look pleasing. You can work wonders with a small piece of attractive cloth and tailoring tools like needle, thread and a little creativity and some imagination. Equipped with these simple tools, and powered by your creativity and imagination, you can make an attractive dress for your cute pet.
You need to start with measuring the dimension of the clothes you are going to stitch. Take care to keep the opening for the neck loose so that at least two of your fingers can move freely in it. Measure the size for the neck clearly around the base leaving it loose enough to let the neck have free movement. Now you are done with the neck measurement.
If you are thinking of covering the chest as well, measure the broadest part of the chest including the stomach. To measure your ferret’s length, size him up from the base of the neck up to the tail. These basic measurements are what you need to create ferrets clothes that will look cute and cuddly on your pet.
These animals attract fleas and other insects that can irritate them. So it is important to have a few change of clothes. You need to keep the ferret clean with his clothes on. Wash these clothes and spray repellants on them to avoid contracting irritants for the pets.
