Ferret Prefers Cat Food

Is it OK to feed ferrets cat food?

Q: I just got a ferret, but she won’t eat her food. She eats my cat’s food. Is that good for her?

A: Cat food is not good for ferrets. Your ferret should be eating a high-quality ferret food. Make sure your cat’s food is somewhere the ferret can’t reach it. We place our cats’ food on a bookshelf because they can jump to reach it and the dogs and ferrets can’t.
