My SIL had a ferret and loved it - however, when it was loose it got into the plants and dug the hell out of them , got stuck in small spaces, hid ... needless to say, it was a lot cuter IN the cage and I personally would not let a ferret wander around.
ITA. In general, cats are very independent/self-serving; and most other animals just aren't like that.
