So I have baseboard heaters all over my house, every single room. This little monster will NOT stop running away from me as fast as she can to squeze herself under them and flat crawl around my apartment. Any ideas on how to ferret proof baseboard heating?
(Not sure if this is the right section to post this kind Of question. I’m still working on navigating my way around here so I apologize in advance if I’ve put it in the wrong spot)

Maybe somebody will come up with some more ideas for you.
To keep my ferrets coming out of their room at night and going into rooms that are off limits, I have glued wood strips under the bottom edges of my doors. I even have painter's tape on my lower kitchen cabinet doors. It will become a latrine under there or stashing area if i don't keep them closed. Also one gets on my kitchen countertop by way of silverware drawer if it is slightly open by way of lower cabinet. My Abbey(DIP) at one time was so small she crawled under the washing machine and bit a rubber hose that made our machine leak water---we had to to put wood strips under that too.
That is so weird. Mine have been living with that for almost 3 years now, and I've never had them try that Run along the top, yes. But that's it!

My hope is that she gets too big tp fit under them, Right now its no issue of course because the heat is off but I want her to learn it's not a place to go ever, I'm worried she will get away from me and squeeze under there in the winter when its on and hurt herself =[
OMG that looks like a ferret playground, like a tunnel. It's unlikely she'll cause any damage. The first time they turn on for cold weather she'll be in for a surprise. Covering them all is probably the most interesting ferret proofing challenge I've seen.... How close to the floor are the radiators? My Alice was 1.7 lb, and she could squeeze into a gap between the kitchen cabinets and kick-board that was 3/4 inch wide.
The gap to the floor is about an inch to an inch and a half.. I was thinking the suggestion abut molding wasn't a bad idea I also in my head was thinking I could line the perimeter of my apartment with disassembled small animal cage parts Lol
