St. Louis, MO The ferret center also provides data on the number of ferret deaths per year and pet-friendliness scores.

In general, the data indicates that ferrets are generally safer when housed with other pets.

The data also suggests that ferret owners have more access to the internet than other pet owners, with more than 4 million ferret-friendly websites.


Chicago, IL The Chicago-area ferret population has grown dramatically over the last decade.

In 2016, there were 2,066 ferrets in the area, and by 2022, that number was nearly 3,000.

In 2017, the city saw a 2,500 increase, with another 3,800 in 2018.

The number of new ferrets added in 2018 is a record for Chicago, as the city has more than doubled in size over the past 15 years.

Chicago’s ferret density, along with the city’s pet-loving residents, has helped to drive an increase in ferret mortality.

However, in terms of ferreting statistics, Chicago is still the most ferret friendly city in the United States.


New York City, NY The New York ferret industry is very popular, and it is still one of the most lucrative in the country.

New Yorkers are the only people who can afford ferrets, and most New Yorkers live in close proximity to ferrets.

The city has seen a steady increase in the number and number of residents who have purchased ferrets over the years.

In 2019, there was a whopping 6,400 ferrets per square mile in New York, which was up from 4,500 in 2018 and 2,000 in 2017.

The ferrets are very easy to care for, and the ferret community is very supportive.


Houston The ferrets living in Houston are also very popular in the city.

Houston is a city that is a pet-free city, which means that ferreters are not required to be vaccinated with live vaccines to prevent disease.

This has helped Houston to maintain a very high ferret death rate, even as the ferreter population has increased.

In 2018, therewere 9,900 ferrets killed, which is more than double the 4,800 ferrets that died in 2017 and up from 3,600 in 2018, when Houston had about 1,100 ferrets on its streets.

Houston also has the highest ferret number per capita, with nearly 2,400 people per square foot of space in the Houston metro area.


Detroit, MI Detroit has a large ferret colony and has a pet owners population that is very similar to New York.

In fact, the ferrets live in the same city as New York’s residents.

Detroit’s ferreted population has also grown substantially over the decades.

In 2000, there numbered just over 2,100, with the population going to nearly 6,000 by 2020.

Today, there are more than 3,300 ferrets spread across the city, and many ferrets have been adopted by Detroiters who have moved to the city in search of more ferret companionship.


Minneapolis/St Paul, MN Minneapolis is home to the largest ferret cluster in the U.S. Minneapolis has a very pet-conscious population, which includes people who have adopted ferrets from other parts of the country and are interested in living with them.

The Minneapolis-St Paul area also has a ferret cemetery, with over 2.5 million ferrets buried in a cemetery that is dedicated to ferrettes.


Cincinnati Cincinnati has been known for its ferrety communities over the course of its history, with ferrets having a long and storied history in the Cincinnati area.

In 1885, the Cincinnati Ferret Society established the first ferret boarding school.

The school had a ferrettas first class, and in 1906, the first school ferret was born.

Today there are many ferret lovers in Cincinnati, and ferreters are a prominent part of the local culture.


Indianapolis Indianapolis is home the largest Ferret population in the world, with 2,300 people per sq mile of space, making it the pet-only city in America.

In the past, Indianapolis had very few ferrets because of the city being in the Midwest, and because the city is still very pet friendly.

In 2020, there would have been just over 1,000 ferrets had Indianapolis remained pet-focused.
