Thanks. I have never been around ferrets, so this was fun for me to watch. Especially the ferret dancing! They are incredible animals.
Vicki, they have a lot of personality. Each one is an individual and even though they often look alike it's easy to tell them apart. They are very affectionate, and if you get sick the whole colony will come and sleep on the bed with you, just as they cluster around another sick ferret. I have to put them out and shut my bedroom door when I don't feel well, because ferrets can catch anything a human being can.
They are just little THIEVES... Democrats all... :)
Well, they wouldn't make good democrats because they share, they don't take things from other ferrets for themselves when they already have enough. They also let the other ferrets live however they want to, instead of one ferret trying to force his lifestyle on all the rest. But they do steal, at every opportunity...... so in that regard they would be good Democrats.:-)
oh my goodness Harry - after watching that video i now realize that our latest stray cat, Frankie Blue Eyes, who weighs at least 18lbs and is under 2 years old, is actually the world's biggest ferret! he does that sideways dance and run and he constantly does what we call "mank" himself. we call him "manky-mank" for short...and when he does that sideways dance and hop, he "manks" one of the other cats, one of us or himself - bahahahah! he really acts just like a ferret! i have to go and call the guiness book of world records now...i had no idea that i had the biggest ferret known to man in my house. woohoo! now i'm looking forward to a book deal and a reality show at the very least. thanks buddy!your friend,kymber
Well, Frankie Blue Eyes sounds like my kind of cat. He might have some competition from the fake miniature poodle ferrets though for size!
