But my parents are still concerned that I'll be overloaded if I get a Ferret because not only will I have to care for it, I'll have school, my dogs, and the Leader Dog puppy we will be getting next Spring. I don't think I'll be overloaded (maybe just loaded, but not overloaded) but they aren't so sure. So I have a question. About how much time does a Ferret need interaction?
I can let it out of its cage no problem (maybe while I'm doing my homework, etc or I'm just in my room), but how much time do I need to spend playing
And if I got two Ferrets, would they need as much play time with me? I'd be able to let them out to 'exercise' no problem, but it is the getting down on the floor and playing with them that will be in short supply once I go into highschool this fall. (And then on weekends and breaks, I'd have them out all of the time, and I'd be playing with them and, if it is nice out, taking them outside on leashes or in a pen to play outside.
So, any input?
