Friday Ferretblogging: Claire vs. The Evil Paper Tube

Most of the ferrets we’ve had haven’t nibbled much of anything, though Riot does like to sharpen his teeth on a pair of my shoes once in a while.

    Her winter fur is really soft — I still think she’s younger than the 1.5 years they said she was at the shelter, because her coat feels like a baby ferret’s.
    We actually had a breakthrough the other day in ferret relations — I went into the back room because I heard squeaking and assumed Bucky was beating her up again, and SHE was on top of HIM biting his neck and smacking him around. I was so proud. He still tries to kick her ass, but at least now he’s got a healthy respect.
