October is Hairball Awareness Month

I declare October to be Hairball Awareness Month (or "HAM"). With winter approaching, many ferrets are shedding their summer coats. And keeping the ferrets from getting hairballs during shedding season is vital to their well-being. Plucking or brushing the shedding ferrets, giving them lax, and washing their bedding are just some ways to reduce the likelihood of blockages.
