Ferrets are also extremely intelligent and inquisitive, so having a pair of them will keep you busy keeping them out of mischief in your home. As a result ferret proofing your home is a must so they do not injure themselves exploring. Ferrets should be housed in a secure cage when their owners are not home to keep them safe and prevent them from getting into trouble or injured.Pocket pets come in all shapes but only one size - small.

According to , ferrets are carnivorous predators, so they aren't the best companions for other small pets such as rodents and birds. They also tend to nip when they play, and this could cause problems with cats and dogs. At the very least, you should supervise your ferret very closely if you let him interact with them. One bite or scratch could potentially lead to his death.
