Hi all, i don't know if this is going to sound a bit daft, whenever i talk to people about it they always look at me as if im crazy but if anyone is going to understand what im talking about its going to be you guys. What am im wanting to know is how many of you work a full time job and keep ferrets. I currently work about 28hrs a week and my husband works full time but i know somewhere in the foreseeable there might be an opportunity for me to move up the ladder at work, but this will probably mean working full time. There are days as it is where i struggle to give our four ferrets the exercise they need (thats more because not all of them get on together, but thank god thats changing and they've started sleeping together) and i'm worried that taking on a full time job will have an effect on them. So for those of you who do have full time jobs, how do you do it? How do you balance the two? I would potentially working shifts if i applied for the job and was successful so i'm worried that will totally throw them and that they'll get grumpy with me for not being around as much. We are currently making plans to build a new, super cage for them to increase their run around space and to encourage them to play in it while we're our rather than just using it as a bedroom so hopefully that will help them, but they are free roaming, they only sleep in their cages. Am i just over thinking things or will it effect them as much as i think it will? Many thanks for any advice.
