Hehe. I've never seen one in real life. Maybe if there's a meet-up sometime I can get to you could bring her too or something. Is it true rats and ferrets need to be kept far apart?

I would love for you to meet her but sadly she isn't very friendly with people other then myself and Dave. Some ferrets can be pretty temperamental with strangers, you really need to socialise them from a young age like puppies but we got Toki as a gift and she wasn't handled very much in her old home Sad .

Toki hates being in any sort of cage so we have a "ferret room" that's separate from the rats. She has wandered past their cage on the odd occasion and there was no reaction from her or the rats but I don't like her to get to close in case she does take an interest. You can never be to careful when it comes to ferrets as they find a way into EVERyTHING and are as quick as lightning when something takes their fancy.

Awh that's a shame.
That's cool she has her own room! And that she hasn't taken an interest in them so far. I guess it's like having dogs and cats too, you'd def. keep an eye on any pet that could be a ratty predator.

Yes, ferrets eat rats! And of course, rats can be very dangerous back! I would never even have them in the same room in locked cages as it would doubtless agitate them.

Thanks for the compliments guys Big Grin

I agree Laura, ferrets are not the easiest pets to own. They are fantastic to watch and interact with but are very "me me me" animals. Toki will respond to her name but most of the time shes doing what she wants, when she wants regardless of how I feel about it Roll Eyes. The odd cuddle really makes it worth it though!

Carol if you do decide to mind the little fuzzies I would advise you to read up as much as you can about them. You will need a rat/dog free room where they can exercise for at least 4 hours a day (plenty of toys and tunnels are a must) and they are strictly carnivore animals so only meat treats and food. Be sure to post pic's if they do come to stay Smile

Don't be scared Wink Ferrets are fairly easy to care for once you know what you're doing.
Here's one website that will give you some basic information
http://www.all-about-ferrets.com/

You'll find loads more if you google ferret care. I'm sure the lady will give you lots of tips on caring for her babies as well Smile
