Friday Ferretblogging: In Which We Learn That Not All Pet Gates Are Created Equal

Our kitchen door, which we use to keep the ferrets from crawling under the stove or behind the refrigerator, is busted at the moment. While we wait for Mr. A to get tired of looking for another solution and just let me weld the damn hinge back together already, we put up a gate to keep them in the dining room. It’s working out really well:

(We got a new plexi-glass gate off Amazon the next day.)

    The person holding the camera was laughing too hard to hold it still.

    Emma Anne, I would never make a cinematographer. 🙂
    What chiefly offended me about the whole thing was how easy it was. They didn’t struggle AT ALL, just “… ooh, lookit, up … and over! Whee!”

    Bwahahahaaaa! The funniest bit was Ferret #2 figuring out all the fun was on the other side and scrambling over the gate in 0.00002 seconds. That gate = failboat.

    Our rats used to do the same thing.
    Sigh.
    We had to use a 5 foot tall piece of plywood and even THEN the blind one could climb it easily. Damned rat used to climb up the 7 foot book cases as well. Sneaky varmint.
    God I miss her.

    Great bit of video. Friends had ferrets amd I loved playing with them. Just watching them run/jump on a diagonal line was fun. They found a hole in the underside fabric of the couch and would climb into the space and run around; they especially liked bumping their heads on the bottoms of people sitting on the couch.
