I Present The Mythical Three-Headed Ferret

Put Me Down. PUT. ME. DOWN.

A couple of weekends ago, I finally got to meet the famed dingos of the temple of Athenae. And there was much chaos.

Q: What is a group of ferrets called?
Survey says: A group of ferrets is called a “business” or busy-ness.

They’re not kidding about the business part. The Chicago mob ain’t got nothing on these critters. They get in everything. Everything. For instance, here’s Bucky looking for his cellphone to call a raccoon about a shipment. Or football bets. Or both.

HALLO Where Is Phone? Must Place Bets.

And here’s Riot right before he tries to rip my shoe off while Bucky negotiates his piece. Nothing is sacred.

But WAIT Not Until I Rip Off The Soles Of Your SHOEZES

They are truly adorable and warm and cuddly and squishable and whole lots more, especially gentle little Claire bug. Thanks, As, for sharing your squirrels and lovely home with me!

Here’s the phull Phlickr set of pherret photographs. Come back for ones I took at the Greater Chicago Ferret Association. One word: Cloverfield.

    Furberus, the three-headed ferret that protects toys from the dead.
