I don't recomend ferrets for everyone. they are great pets, but they do need at least 3 hours of play time outside their cage! we made one of our spare rooms into a "ferret room" so we don't have to worry about the dogs being to rough with them They can be litter trained and they are fairly clean animals, they have a unique smell though. They love to chew on/hide things. My hubby lost his wallet for about a week then we found it all chewed up in the couch
our first ferret smoochie was perfectly happy living on her own but she accepted the others fairly quickly. Our farrets LOVE my parents cat Spazz they chase each other around for hours. I'll get some pictures on here as soon as i can!
