phylum Chordata The ferret is a domesticated mammal belonging to the family Mustelidae. They typically have brown, black, white, or mixed fur. The ferret is a very close relative of the polecat, but it is as yet unclear whether it is a domesticated form of the European Polecat, the Steppe Polecat, or some hybrid of the two.
