Ferret Skepticism


At the pet store is a plastic cage full of ferrets, which the label says are “lively tubes of furry fun”. Thing is every time I’m in the pet store, the ferrets are sprawled out on their backs, sleeping, dozing tubes of socks that had a wee too wild a party last night. I’ll suppose they’re fun, but the evidence isn’t on stage there. Just as well. Right next to them are guinea pigs, whom I understand much better, because while they may not be tubes of fun or anything they are always looking around with an expression that says, “Are you certain I was supposed to be invited to this meeting?”

  1. My sister had a couple of pet ferrets, years ago. Entertaining creatures, but their night time action adventures got a little wearisome apparently. Especially if any stray food had been left out.

    1. I can imagine. I’ve known a couple of ferrets and when they’re awake they can be awfully fun. It’s just the pet store always has them in the phase where they’re sleeping on a pile of one another.
