Hello all. New and trying to research. I've always wanted a ferret, and know need at least 2 for social reasons. My main question on ownership is can I have them with my schedule. I work four 12hr shifts, off 4 days. I'd be willing to dedicate a room with cage, leave cage open even, and allow free roam. I do have a cat and fish tank if that matters. Can they be left free roaming with a "home", can they deal with my 13ish hours away on my work days? I'm also a hermit. When I'm not at work, I'm at home. I'd give plenty of attention when home.
