Re:Farrets and cats - Thursday, December 28, 2017 10:00 AM
Until recently I had 2 large dogs, 4 cats and several ferrets. My ferrets did live out in the barns in special cages but were allowed to roam free during the day. I had to lock them up at night as I live in a very rural area and was worried about them going feral or getting caught by foxes/traps or poison. I had no problem with the other animals. My problem was that the ferrets became addicted to the dry dog food and would terrorize the other animals to get at the dog bowls. In my case I found the cats and dogs were more frightened of the ferrets than the little furbies were of the larger animals. Sadly I don't have any ferrets at the moment but would have no problems with getting more and running them with the cats.

Cats and ferrets get along fine. If anything it will be the ferret that will pester the cat which will look for higher ground that the ferret can't reach. Just keep an eye on them while they are out for the first few days or so for an indication of how things will go.

[font=""work sans"; font-size: 17px; letter-spacing: -0.1px"]Ferrets and cats often get along well although it does depend on the temperaments of all involved. Cats will often play with ferrets and vice versa and ferrets can usually hold their own against cats. There are definite exceptions though, so supervise play sessions very closely until you are assured that both your ferret and your cat will be fine (and even then you should be close by to watch over them). Ferrets can actually be a little tough on cats, especially kittens, so don't let a grown ferret play with a kitten without close supervision.
