This will yield a disastrous result, probably ending with the injury of one of your animals.

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.

I don't think it's a good idea to put them together.

It would definitely yeild disasterous results. One is a rodent, one is an insectivore. They have completely different living requirements and would almost certainly kill eachother.

Do not put them together.

Cohabiting animals should be left to the experienced and even then its risky.

Yes, many animals have different parasites naturally in their feces, and it would be very likely the other would catch them.
