(N.C. , USA)
I am not a ferret owner, nor have I ever had one, but I would like to be one day. I cannot have one now because I am an avid cat lover with 4 precious fur babies. I’ve always liked the idea of having one and so does my boyfriend. I’m glad I decided to do research now even though it would obviously be a few years before I could own one. It seems from all these stories that you can ever be prepared enough for ferret ownership. The possibilities of an accident appear endless.
If anyone has owned a cat and ferret at the same time could you tell me how that worked out? I know it would mainly depend on the personality of the two individual animals, but I’m hoping it wouldn’t be an impossible pair. I’m guessing most of these items that pose a danger are from when you let the ferret out or if you let them roam the house the majority of the time, or do ferrets escape from their cage easily?
If and when I ever get to own one, I do plan to let them out for at least 3-4 hours a day and of course shower them with attention as I realize they need, but I wouldn’t like the idea of letting them roam the house all the time. It just seems like there would be too many chances for trouble that way.
Thanks in advance for any answers/ advice to some of my questions
