No,that question was kind of retarded.They may like it but that does not mean it is good for them.Your ferrets must not be interested in the type of pellets you are feeding them.There are other types of ferret food in the world.Talk to your vet about which type of new food would be best for your unusual ferrets.

You shouldn't feed your ferret Cat food, but kitten food is a good alternative. Cat food is harder to chew for a ferret. According to the ferrets for dummies book kitten food is ok and is just as good and sometimes better than ferret food(has a higher protein level). Most ferret foods I've found don't have a good level of protein especially the 8 in 1(would never reccommend it). Thats one of the worst ferret foods you can buy(I used to), and you can really tell by the way their poop smells more, bad smelling poop means bad food. I compared all the ferret foods they sell to the kitten food I buy and I have found none better. It's a whole lot cheaper than ferret food and is really good for them. I feed my ferrets Purina kitten chow nuturing formula. It has a very high level of protein, the necessary taurine, and the right amount of fat. It also has antioxidants which you will not find in ferret food. You can learn alot by comparing the labels of food and I would suggest you do it before you buy(not all kitten foods are good), the one I feed mine is the best. I've had my ferrets for almost a year and they are very healthy and look alot better than when I fed them the 8 in 1 ferret food.
