Advertisement So I'm thinking of getting a ferret, as my girlfriend used to have one when she was younger and I want to make her happy. But I do have some questions about them, as I would never buy a pet (especially this kind) without knowing what I'm getting into. 1) Do I need to keep my ferret away from my tarantulas/snakes? 2) How often should I bathe it and take it out for social time? 3) I live in an apartment, do they chew on furniture or walls or anything like that? 4) Are they good about peeing in their "toilet area"? Thanks guys. I'm putting a lot of thought into this.
