OK. You will probably think that I am crazy. I love my three hooded rats. I would like to get a ferret. I know that the majority of the time an adult ferret would probably kill any rat or mouse that he meets. However, has anyone successfully gotten a rat and a ferret to get along? Possibly even live together?
The reason I ask is because I'd really like to get a ferret. I recently built a cage for my rats that takes up about a quarter of my bedroom. It is 5 feet long by 3 feet wide by 2 feet tall. They love it. If I were to get a ferret it would only be fair that he have a cage at least that big. I don't have the room for another cage that size.
Anyway....perhaps if I got the ferret when he was VERY young and he was properly introduced to the rats.... could this work?
My rats have NO fear of other animals. They even play with my german shepherd
Thanks for your in-put.
