Hubby and I live in a 1-bedroom apartment(I think it's 500-600sq feet) and have 2 cats, 5 ferrets, and 2 sugar gliders. However, I'm also hand-raising 2 orphan kittens(4 weeks old) at the moment, so that puts our cat count to 4.
Oh yeah, and I'm getting a 3rd sugar glider in November.
I think we've reached out limit, what do ya'll think? lol.
Oh yeah, just so ya'll know, no one is stressed and everyone has plenty of room.
The ferrets have a ginormous cage, but they spend most of their time out of it(I just block of the room, bathroom, and kitchen and let them have free run of the livingroom and dining area). Bestia, oour ex-feral kitty, spends most of her time snoozing on top of the ferrets' cage or sunbathing in the window, and Binx spends most of his time in my lap, playing with the ferrets, or sitting in front of my computer screen, lol.
Oh yeah, the glider's cage is in the bathroom so that it's nice and dark and no-one bothers them. However, I think we're going to move the computer desk out of our bedroom and put the new glider cage(when it arrives) in there instead. It's getting cold up here and the gliders need to stay warm and we always keep our room cozy in the winter.
Lastly, the kittens are in the bedroom because, again, it's nice and cozy in there. Also, the have a minor respiratory and eye infection so I don't want them near the other critters. As well as the fact that they are way too young to be able to stay out in he livingroom.
Everyone is happy, healthy, and gets plenty of time and attention. I'm a stay-at home wife so I have plenty of time for everyone.
Hubby doesn't really like animals(except the ferrets, he LOVES the ferrets. He also thinks the gliders are neat), but he knew what he was getting into when he married me, lol.
