The Ferret Flyer

 

The Ferret Flyer is is a wheelchair individually made by very dedicated ferret lovers Robert and Donna Morgavan in Texas, whose interest and desire is to help those ferrets having trouble getting around stay mobile. They will work with ferret owners in customizing the Ferret Flyer wheelchair to meet your ferrets needs, they do not mass produce as each ferret is unique.

Your ferret is secured in the Ferret Flyer by two adjustable nylon buckle straps, and a velcro strap which attaches to either an H or jacket type harness (not provided) so they cannot get loose. The front wheels of the cart turn a complete 360 degrees to follow your ferrets every move, while the big rear wheels allows for ease of movement on carpet.
