My boyfriend and I have two ferrets, a boy named Finli, and a girl named Rosie. Rosie is three months older than Fin and they are around a year old. Rosie had recently gotten really fat while Fin is still pretty lean. They both get exercise and we don't put a ton of food in the bowl every day. How can we keep her at a healthy weight?
This is Rosie

And this is Finli

Since you have a boy and girl I"m guessing girl and boy may = babies.

Did you get them fixed yourself or were you told that when you got them? If the later I would be cautious.

If you got them fixed yourself then a couple questions:

What is your feeding schedual like?
What are they fed (brands, treats)?

Got them at a pet store, they are Marshall ferrets though and have the tattoos indicating that they were desexed and descented. They eat Marshall ferret diet, and don't really like treats, and my boyfriend puts food in their bowl every morning.
