Red face First Introduction

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the ferret section as it applies to both. I went with here because Maggie was the more inquisitive one.
I figured since I have had Maggie a week now tomorrow I need to start introducing her to the ferrets. Snoopy (my biggest ferret & only male) played the biggest role in me adopting Maggie. I wanted a buddy for him that is more equal in size with him as the girls (ferrets) are all a bit smaller. So last night We had just Snoopy out of the cage to see how Maggie would respond. We were always within arms reach of both of them "just in case", but to be honset I didn't expect any problems. The first day Maggie saw the ferrets through the cage (a week ago) she hissed at them. Last night she didn't hiss or even swing at him! In fact she was stalking him all over the living room as he was completely ignoring her. Here are a couple pictures I took in process:

I love the second pic!

Snoopy is probably the biggest ferret that I've ever saw! He's very handsome.

Awww, how cute. I bet they will become best buds. My cats are so well behaved with my rabbits. They do not see them as prey at all, and they love playing chase. The rabbits actually go up to the cats and try to get them to chase them! I doubt Maggie will see the ferrets as prey, especially since she's so young. I can't wait for updates and more pics!

I wasn't worried about prey issues as ferrets are not rodents or one of cats' prey

I am more worried about the girls going after Maggie than anything, I'm sure all in all though everything will be just fine

It's ok Veggie, not to worry
I just meant that when introducing any new pet to each other caution should always be exercised & my girls are hyper little brats that may startle Maggie a little, but I'm sure she will be ok cause she can stil defend herself as she still has her claws intact (that & we are always within arms reach of them to separate if need be)
