Default People with a ferret nation (or critter nation) -- my pets are too smart

Ok so I think the critter nations have the same cage opening things as the ferret nations.

So after too many nights of sitting in the dark waiting to catch them in the act, I figured it out. Rosey and Harley tag team it.
