Best* Ferret Cages of 2022

Ferrets are small but mischievous, requiring secure cages that don’t allow them any options for escape. While they can sleep for up to 18 hours a day, they typically spend their remaining hours exploring—occasionally where they could find danger.

Learn More About Ferret Cages

Many features can set a high-quality ferret habitat apart from other small animal homes. As ferrets can be highly energetic pets, finding a home that offers plenty of room for them to run around and play can be one of the top priorities for pet parents. All that space in your ferret enclosure won’t mean much unless you also have quality ramps to encourage climbing and exploration, so these features are also worth researching.

As these pets are also known for their intelligence and agility, choosing a ferret cage with features that help prevent their escape can also be a good choice. Chew-proof locks and ones that can’t be accessed from inside the habitat can help keep your pet secure, and bars with small spacing can help prevent them from squeezing through the habitat or accessing locks.

As ferrets need quite a bit of exercise, it’s recommended that you get the biggest ferret enclosure that you can afford and that your home can accomodate. At the bare minimum, pet parents will need a home around 24” L X 24” W X 18” H—or roughly 2.5 cubic feet of internal space per ferret—but pets in smaller habitats will likely need be to let out to play more often. Five cubic feet of space can be a better option if you plan on keeping your ferret in their home for most of the day.

That can often depend on the personality of your pet and your needs as a pet parent. Does your ferret love to have lots of toys and playthings in their indoor ferret cage? Finding an enclosure that has space for hammocks, tubes or chew toys can be a good idea for these kinds of ferrets. Do you have multiple pets who sometimes need a time out from their sibling? A habitat that has doors separating different levels can be a great solution to help them behave. However, due to their high energy and intelligence, two qualities are generally high on Petco’s pet parents’ lists when choosing the best ferret cage—size and security.
