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.
Hey look…the people put in a new playground toy!!! Let’s try it out!!!
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!”
well, momee was on the other side and she has raisins!
(cue theme from “The Great Escape”)
Which one’s Steve McQueen? And is a tiny motorcycle stashed somewhere?
They’s sure is clever li’l critters!
so now you need to get a rabbit. No way a rabbit could get over that.
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.
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.
if you declaw the cat, they don’t climb so much.
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.
And the second one (Riot?) even landed on his feet.
