Ferrets are fun and exciting pets that bring a lot of energy and joy to a home. However they are not the best pets to house with other animals. They are predators that can prey on smaller pets and their aggressive play style can aggravate cats and dogs. If you want to house your ferret with other pets make sure to keep smaller pets separate and supervise all interactions with larger pets. Introduce your cat or dog to your ferret slowly before letting them interact. Reconsider housing ferrets with other pets. Ferrets generally do better when they are housed with other ferrets instead of other pets. Before you decide to mix a ferret with other pets determine if there is a really good reason for you to have both ferrets and other pets.
Keep your small pets separate from your ferret. Ferrets are hunters and carnivores so they may mistake small pets as prey. If you want both types of pets keep them securely in their cages while the other is out. It is also wise to keep smaller pets in separate ferret proofed rooms. Ferrets may attack small pets on instinct even if you are supervising.
Supervise any interactions with cats. Ferrets do best with cats but they still need to be supervised. The ferret may play too harshly and the cat may attack with sharp teeth and claws. If your cat and ferret become friends always watch them when theyre together.
Exercise extreme caution around dogs with ferrets. Dogs are generally too rough with ferrets because they may see them as prey. Regardless of the dogs breed or temperament keep the dog on a leash or in a crate until it is used to the ferret. After that always supervise your dog while it is in the same room as your ferret.Fortunately, ferrets can usually coexist peacefully, and even amicably, with cats and dogs
Ferrets need to be allowed out to play for at least an hour or two every day in a room that has been ferret-proofed
