My brother had ferrits for years. I would say they are more like a cat !! His ferrit was just a stinker but so much fun watching him play and attack you from nowhere. He had a very large cage for them during the day when he went to work. They go potty in a litter box like a cat. We could sit and watch them for hours. Oh are you really from Scotland ??? saw that on the "where are you from post" Jubilee
I had a ferret for 11 years! He was soooooooo fun. He was litter trained, he followed me everywhere, and he stole and hid just about everything..hehe. I don't really think they're like cats. I don't think they're as independent as cats. Mine liked to be around me all the time. And if I yelled at him for something, he would actually stop. I don't think you can train cats. lol. Mine would play games with me and 'fetch'. He loved to sit on my shoulder and have his tummy petted. I love ferrets. :)
i've never owned a ferret, but friends of mine had. they're the cutest little things such unique little personalities! i'd say defeintly more cat like. lol, the other day i was walking sandy, and our neighbour was out walking her ferret, sandy freaked and tried to jump into my arms!
