So here's another question for you all
My kitchen, dining room and living room are all open to each other. My ferrets have the run of this space when I'm watching them and nothing bad has ever happened. Hearing horror stories about how bad kitchens can be for ferrets though, I want to block off this area. Does anyone have suggestions for how to block it off? I keep thinking of something sort of like a baby playpen, but it couldn't have horizontal wires because they'd just use it like a staircase! Is there some material out there that is either solid or has vertical wires only so they couldn't get through, but i'd still be able to step over? It would have to be about 5-6 ft wide to span the opening to the kitchen.
