    She’s SO CUTE!

    She really is! She’s adorable! And her eyes are blue when you photograph her. awe…so precious….and yeah they are like a mix of animals, smart like a cat to sneak up behind you and use the litter but then smart like a dog that you can train them to do tricks as well. totally OT do you know what an austrialian bikini wax is? Thanks!

      Re: She’s SO CUTE!

      😀 😀 😀 She’s just a little darling! I find her fascinating ‘cos she’s so small yet so much like a cat/dog – amazing how ferrets have the good bits of cats sand good bits of dogs 😉

      Erm… I have no idea about the bikini wax? maybe in the shape of Australia? Haha, I dunno!

        Why are hammies banned in Australia?

          ‘cos they breed too quickly and are a pest in a country where agriculture is so important. Rabbits/mice are allowed cos they’re already IN the country.. but for hamsters, they ban them since they don’t exist in AU yet..

    AWW! I love ferrets, they have such playful personalities. Misty is a cutie pie. Ferrets love any kind of tube they can crawl through, if you want to get her a toy. 🙂

    OMG, I don’t wish to freak you out, but I just had a dream (a slight nightmare, rather) involving some cute, furry animal last night. Couldn’t figure out what exactly it was supposed to be, but I saw your pic. in this entry and went, “That’s the animal!!!” :O

    Anyway, it was pretty scary in my dream, but your Misty is definitely ultra-adorable. 😉

      Hamsters are cute but not in the realms of cats/dogs.. in terms of intelligence and personality. I just wanted a pet that was more, ‘conscious’, y’know? A pet that could do tricks, was smart, etc.. 🙂

      Yeah, it’s weird how they play and open their mouths/nip! But as long as she doesn’t nip hard it’s OK.. do adults nip too or less?

      Reply
      • backygirly posted on January 19, 2005 at 1:00 am

        The adults DEFINITELY nip less, IMO! One of mine nipped a lot (and hard) when she was a baby and she doesn’t AT ALL now. I think it’s because they’re used to being with lots of other ferrets and that’s how they play. They will more than likely lay off the biting as they age.

        I would think about getting another ferret too, but after you get used to Misty!!

        • beverly posted on January 19, 2005 at 1:03 am

          Wow cool.. so it’s just like a teething-puppy thing. Should I be training my baby not to nip though, even if it doesn’t hurt? Not sure if I’m encouraging her to nip, as we rough-play/chase..

            I don’t know, I’m definitely not an expert but I’ve had them for a couple of years!! I tried to encourage her not to nip, but I bet she would stop otherwise. There are tons of sites regarding this stuff!!

            Yeah I have 5! LOL! I think I showed you my pics a few days ago! Do you remember? 🙂

            oh DUHHHHHHHHH I got you mixed up with etherealprey – thought it was HER pics I saw 😛

            Yeah i reckon i’ll let her nip a little if she wants, but if she bites hard then I’ll do the whole “NO!” thing.. anyway she doesn’t hurt and is just super boisterous, think it’s how she just likes to play! So funny when she bounces everywhere 😉

  • roslyn posted on January 19, 2005 at 12:50 am

    She is so cute! Congratulations on your new baby!! 😉

    I’ve read in quite a few places that ferrets are best kept in pairs (see, eg, the Ferret Society website) cos they get quite bored and lonely if you’re away a lot during the day. I don’t think you need an extra cage or anything – so it might be something to think about once you’re settled in in your new place.

      Yeah it’s kinda the same as with cats/dogs/most other pets, good to have a playmate. I’ll see though, as having 2 would be might be difficult, 1’s such a handful! 😉 I’ll see how she goes over the next few months.. if she gets lonely, etc
