Maybe you two can make a compromise about not getting anymore pets until one of the current pets pass on.

I love dogs especially large dogs, but my Fiance hates/is terrified of them.  So we only have cats.  We have three and I’ve already assured him that it’s all I’ll ever have and I don’t anticipate “replacing” any of them when they pass on. 

If it’s an odor issue, perhaps you two can come to an agreement about cleaning and limiting the time the ferret and cat is in the living area or completely banning them from your bedroom or office so you have a place to go that’s away from the smell.

I would NEVER have a ferret for this reason!

I am an animal lover and I work in the pet-care industry…but I never have animals in my bedroom or kitchen.

I think it’s a good idea to set boundaries right from the beginning for what you are comfortable with. You are compromising by living with the animals…she needs to compromise too…this might mean keeping pets out of certain rooms and off the furniture.


One PP said not to get another pet until one has passed. I think this is also a good idea!
