I have 6 ferrets, each with there own personality. They live in a home with 3 dogs and 3 cats. one of the dogs plays with them, one ignores them and the other dog walks away and sleeps in another room. 2 of the 3 cats will come into the room when the ferrets are loose, one of the cats will play with and groom the ferrets the other doesn't mind watching them but wants nothing to do with them. but please keep in mind ferrets need room to run and play. they cannot be kept constantly in a cage and you need a good sized cage for one.

Ferrets at PETCO are $150.00 without tax..... but as for the animals, do not plan to have playdates with them. Ferrets can and will attack a rabbit/cat. I have a ferret of my own and I once introduced her to my sisters dachshund to which he tried biting her and she fought back! All I'm saying is to be careful but, I will say my Chihuahua is very sweet and kind to my ferret.

You will have to introduce them slowly and they MUST be the same species or they cannot live together. Syrian/Teddy Bear hamsters CANNOT live together though. Only dwarfs of the same species can. There are many videos on youtube on how to safely introduce hamsters to each other i would recommend you watch them.

If they are Syrian, yes 100% of the time. My 2 girls are now 8 weeks old and need to be separated ASAP! That is why I am now shopping for a new cage. My 4 boys are surprisingly doing well (they even collaborated for a but that is the exception and who knows for how much longer?

If they are dwarfs, then same gender and only if they are siblings who have lived together their entire lives. Do not attempt to introduce new hamsters to each other!

It depends on how much space you have. If you have a lot of room i would recommend a 20 inch long tank, not wide. If you don't have that much room i would recommend the Pervue cage that comes with two separate 2nd floors.

Chinese dwarf hamsters are quite small, but energetic. This means you can get them any cage you want, but if you get them a big cage, put lots of toys in it so they do not feel intimidated by it, since they are in fact prey animals. Just keep in mind that ALL hamsters need a minimum of 360 square inches!

Well a syrian will need at least a cage with 360 square in. a FLAT based 12 in. wheel, safe substrate, not softwood, a food with at least 17% protine, hideaways, a water bottle, a nesting material, NEVER FLUFFY BEDDING, it can get really pricey.

Well the actual hamster could be found in Petco or in rehoming ads for between 5-15 dollars. Then for a nice habitat, which i recommend using a 20 gallon long or bigger aquarium with a ventilated lid, another 30 dollars. Then for a few toys budget 20-30 dollars. for a good wheel, about 10 dollars. Food, bedding, water bottle around 15-25 dollars (i recommend carefresh-safe to consume and very absorbent-great for rabbits, guinea pigs, and others-it is more expensive, but keeps habitat clean which is important as teddys contract wet tail easier than other hamsters.) Keep in mind that the Teddy is actually just a version of the Syrian, and is a relatively large hamster and needs a large habitat-these hamsters can get stuck in tubey habitats like crittertrail. Also, do not buy your hamster hay despite what some might say. Sorry for the long answer-good luck with your new furry friend!

Sorry if this is late :) but what I do is connect a couple of smaller CritterTrail cages. That way it's like a burrow for them and they have room to run around. Another option is to search "Bin Cages" and make one of those. I would go with the first option, though. Have fun with your furry friend!

answer 1
Well first off, if you only have one rat, you either have to spend almost every second of the day with it, or else it will get depressed and can actually die of loneliness. So you would have to get two. Rats where I shop are about 7-10 dollars, so that's $14 at the least. And then the cage. Decent cages provide at least two square feet per rat and are all metal wiring so your rats' chewing habits won't damage it, and they cost at least $100, but are typically more. If you're smart, you'll shop the sales. I got my multilevel all metal cage for about $100, but without the sale it would have been $190. So now you're at at LEAST $114 if you're lucky. Food is roughly $7 a bag and you'll need a new bag at least once every two months depending on how many and how hungry your rats typically are. Bedding can be expensive. It can be between $14-$34 a bag, but you can overcome this by shredding your junk mail or newspaper and using as bedding. I recommend this because some pet bedding can be damaging to their respiratory systems. With all the cage accessories and supplies to clean the cage with (water bottles, toys, places to sleep, treats, and cleaning supplies etc) your grand total would run a little over $200 if you were lucky and got everything on sale. It's very hard to spend that little and get a happy, healthy rat, so honestly, you'll probably end up spending hundreds of dollars. You also have to keep in mind that every other month you'll need to buy new food and bedding and occasionally new toys because they chew on everything, so you'll ALWAYS be spending money on your rats. That's why if you're getting a rat, you have to take this seriously and understand that no pet is something cheap. But also keep in mind that when given the proper care, rats are very rewarding pets. They were probably one of the best investments I've ever made.

No. Guinea pigs do not like ramps, believe me. Try to find a cage with 1 level. Plus, if there's little holes for tubes or anything, guinea pig are too big to fit through most of them.

Well for one hamster the min. floorspace for a cage is 360 square inches. Robos are smaller so they will need a smaller wheel (make sure that it's not wire or mesh it can cause bumble foot) or you can get the flying saucer they sell those at Petco). But Robos are VERY Energetic Hamsters So they need More Floor Space. I Recommend a 20 Gallon Tank Or Bigger (Wait Til Petco Has There Dollar Gallon Sale). Or you can build a DIY Bin Cage. Lok up videos on good and bad hamster cages. :D and remember that if you get 2 Robos dubble up the size of the cage. :D

Rabbit rescues recommend that you have at least 4x4 feet of floor space for your rabbit, so any of the petstore cages you will see are too small. But you can make one using NIC grids or as other people call them storage cube grids. Or You can buy a dog x-pen those can be cheap depending on where you get them ( I know that Petco sells them :) ). But be shure that if you get a x-pen that it's at least 36" high. Or you can just let your rabbit free range your house and/or your room or wherever your planing on keeping your rabbit. :D

I recommend a C&C cage! These are not actual cages - you have to make them from wire shelving grids called cubes and corrugated plastic called coroplast. These are much cheaper than the cages you can buy, and so easy to build and customizable.
Make sure the cage is large enough - 10sq ft should be sufficient for 1 or 2 rabbits. Also, rabbits need hours of exercise daily - make sure you can commit to this! I think Petco have runs avaliable to buy that are big enough, but free range floor time around the house should be even better.

I would recommend a dog crate as a rabbit cage. I know it sounds weird but it works. All you need to do is put blankets down instead of bedding. It is cheaper anyways to use blankets instead of bedding, you will save $220 a year. Dog crates tend to be bigger for less money. You can spend $30 on a small dog create and only get a gerbil cage for that price.

Rabbits make great pets. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a "good cheap quality cage". You either get cheap or quality. This is the cage I would recommend and with the holidays coming I'm sure you'll be able to find sales, which is where you can get the quality cages for less:
http://www.petco.com/product/113412/Trixie-Natura-One-Story-Rabbit-Hutch.aspx

Keep in mind that is for an average or dwarf rabbit. The larger bunnies will not fit in there comfortably. I recommend getting a dwarf bunny they make great pets.

My advice would be to get a rabbit playpen, clean living makes one with a cover so your rabbit won't escape, altogether this would be about 40 dollars, another option is a c & c cage which is a great cage you build yourself. for a 2 by 3.5 by 2 feet (which is the smallest size you should ever use for one rabbit) it costs 64 dollars which is really good for all that space. however if you will want to invest in a top which will cost about 12 dollars or you could make your own. Good luck!

I have had rats for a few years. I currently have one doe and am planning on getting two more does very soon. I currently have a Rat Manor and it has been wonderful. It lasted for years. Now it's old and I'm looking to upgrade to a bigger cage. I can't seem to find any that are suitable for rats. They all seem to have bar spacing that is too big. I don't want my girls getting out!
