Ferrets, Uncategorized FERRET SOCIAL DAY 4 December 2005

You know the “really really really really really exciting” thing that was happening today?




Yep! Like proud parents, we brought Misty to her (and ours) first ever Ferret Social Day.

We were pretty amazed to see about 50 people there.. some had 1 ferret, some had 2.. some had 8.. some had 13!!! It was insane – ferrets galore 😉 Had a lovely time talking to everyone and checking out the ferrets.. I’ve never seen ferrets before apart from Misty! Was really keen to find out if she’s considered small or large (she’s considered small) and if her personality was fiesty or placid compared to others (she’s considered pretty placid, everyone kept saying how sweet she was!).

And Misty’s reaction? She was totally freaked to see another ferret, *lol*! She looked totally bug-eyed and amazed to see fellow ferrets.. and was really really skittish when any of them came near her, jumping nearly 1 foot into the air. After about an hour or two, she calmed down a little and proceeded to ignore all the other ferrets, while they all played amongst themselves. She just kept looking around for me and wanted to be cuddled and played with by humans – she’s spent pretty much her whole life with chris and I so she really only knows how to interact with humans, and didn’t know what to make of ferrets.

Soooo tired now, it’s so hot today!

Ferrets galore!

Ellie, one of the ferrets up for adoption. I wanted her so much!

I look like I’m holding her in a death grip here, *lol*

My baby Misty

Say CHEEESE

My 2 babies

Looking bewildered

“Lemme out of here! I want a cuddle!”

Free at last

Snuggled happily on Chris’ lap

Playing in the ferret tube

Inside and trying to hide from the other ferrets

“EW stop sniffing my butt”

Santa came! Misty got a bag of ferret treats 🙂

    • beverly posted on December 4, 2005 at 8:03 pm

      They’re a cross between a kitten and puppy so the care would be similar to that.. they sleep 3/4 of the day in a cage, but they have to be let out when they’re awake 🙂

    Not many people have ferrets here in Vancouver…

    duhh..seriously, the ferrets attempt me to get one. Btw, I ever saw a ferret, that almost as big as a calve from a teenager. Maybe, it looked like the ferret in your 2nd pic mid left and that amazed me, as I used to imagine they should be the same size of chihuahua.

      Yeah some are whopper-sized, but some are more petite – I like them a bit smaller 🙂

    Are ferrets pretty clean pets? I’m a big animal lover and I’ve always wanted a ferret but I heard they smell. I guess it all depends on the ferret.

    • beverly posted on December 5, 2005 at 7:01 am

      It’s kinda a dog smell, like how some people think dogs are smelly?

      Ferrets are toilet trained like cats though, which I love!
