Default Ferret?

So, this summer I'm saving my money for a female ferret. Does anyone here have a ferret? If I get one, I'm not planning on Truffles and the future ferret to be playing together. But should I keep their cages on different sides of the room since keeping them in totally separate rooms is not an option? Also, can anyone point me in the right direction to a ferret form, kinda like Hedgehog Central?

Thanks,
Jessi

I have 5! I suggest joining this forum http://holisticferret60.proboards.com/ They are great!!

As for keeping them in the same room, I personally wouldn't, I see you say it's not an option to keep them in separate rooms so I don't really have any advice on that part. But do make 100% sure your ferret cannot escape from its cage, ferrets are predators and would probably try to eat your hedgehog.

I would try and find another place to keep the ferret rather than in the same room as your hedgehog. As Greenbeans mentioned, ferrets are predators and hedgehogs prey and for some small prey animals, the smell of a predator nearby stresses them out. A separate room for both would be best.

What kind of cage is your hedgehog in? If C&C, I'd switch to a proper cage as C&C's are not easy to ferret proof. Just in case ferret ever escaped it's cage, it's best if hedgie is in a ferret proof cage.

Are you only getting one ferret? they tend to do better in groups of 2 or 3 as there very social and like the company.

Well, I know there are lots of shelter ferrets that don't do well with other ferrets. I am trying to get one that would prefer to be a "Only Child" ferret rather than a "Sibling Ferret" But, if I cant find one, I will most likely get two. My family and I used to have 3 energetic ferrets, their names were Ace (ACE-E), A.J., and Marshmellow (he was a SOFT ferret) (I was 6 when this happened)
