I have a two-year-old sable ferret named Molly. She's a great-tempered, playful
scamp who we love dearly. We give her restricted run of the finished ba***t
in the evenings, usually with supervision.
As with any ferret, Molly is extremely curious. Since the ba***t is
ferret-proof, this does not pose a problem - that is, until she decides that
she wants to be upstairs. Molly runs full-tilt up the stairs and tears at the
carpet under the door. She does this even when I'm downstairs. I go up the
stairs, bring her down, and she simply runs back up it again. Immediately.
After 3-4 repeats of this behavior, I put her back in her cage and her play
time is over.
I'd like to let Molly run around during the day when I am not at home, and
would like to let her have run of the ba***t full-time. However, this is
simply not possible as she has already started wearing the carpet out.
