Oh, no!!! Please find something to put over as a temporary top just for now. Use something like a towel or sheet, and keep the ferret away if possible--shut off the room.

To make a top, you can either use cubes that are cable-tied together, or you can use organizational shelving. Look on the photo pages for instructions.

Please also get your cavy a friend. They are social animals and need to be housed in pairs. See www.cavyspirit.com/sociallife.htm (http://www.cavyspirit.com/sociallife.htm) for more info.

can the ferret fit between the grid squares? maybe thats how he got in.

can ferrets squish like that, if so you may need to double up the grids, I've seen at least one cage in the photo gallery.

That's a good point. If there's no top, they can still get in though.

Sue, any update, please?

o that is terrble put a bin over it with something heavy or close off the room imediatly. That is horrible.

i agree with everybody so far, but do something right now so that the ferret cannot do anything, and do something so they don't even see each other, preferably, and after you have your right now situation set up, set up something more permenant, i would net ever even let the ferret in the room, and i would still have a firmly attached and shut lid, and double grids, and never ever leave the door open.
