Fer-reets, how I loff thee

What is THE DEAL with ferreets?

Do I loff them because they could slide under half-inch door gaps with their lack of bones?

Do I loff them for their skinny ways and tiny ears?


There are simply too many reasons to count.


Just enjoy them, Natalie F.



  1. I loff beink first post! And also zee BEF!!!!

  2. Let moi count zee ways!

  3. I think The Valentine Ferret sounds like a good tradition to begin.
    They could deliver cards the way Easter Buns deliver eggs.

  4. Oh my gosh, that’s adorable. I laughed.

  5. Awwww….. so cuuuute. Frisky ferrets frolicking through the fabulous flowers….and giving each other Valentine’s too!

  6. Wook at the wittle fewwits! With the wittle bitty Vawentine! Awwww, they WUV each other!

    Baby talk brought to you by my sister, who saw that I post on CO for the first time today. She’d be the third person today I’ve shown CO to 🙂

  7. Welp, I’m dead.

    Happy Valentine’s day everyone.


  8. Very cute, but it doesn’t beat the ferret nap: http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/07/loveexciting_an.html

    I lof dem!

  10. GreenEyedHawk says:

    PS Why do furrets still not have their own category???

  11. They are SOOOO cute! I think I need a furret! Ze are to cute!

  12. Ah, don’t be fooled! The one on the left is saying, “OK, we distract them with some of our cute frollicking moves, then YOU eat the roses and I’LL roll in the chocolates, mwhahahahah!” And the one on the right is going “Oooh look, shiney thing!”

  13. Sneaky little skinny sock thieves. Amazing sock thieves. Probably stole the valentine and squirreled it away to his missing-left-sock-filled secret lair to romance his lady ferret friend. She was probably highly impressed with his sock-stealing prowess.

  14. …or because they do not seet steel?

    Or because they sometimes steenck?

    Seriously, cute Valentine. I admire whoever got them to sit still long enough, or the master powers of the cameraperson, to get this photo.

  15. “I wuv you!”

    The only true way to say it.

  16. You know…this ferret looks like most men probably feel on Valentine’s Day–like a giant disembodied hand is forcing them to be romantic.

  17. Minor teeny weeny threadjack:

    In my town the White Castle’s took reservations and had white table cloth dinners.


    Now I thought I was a seriously good wife insofar as gift giving, but when I saw this my heart sunk. I wonder if it is too late to get this furret to send an “I’m sorry I didn’t take you out for sliders on Valentine’s Day Purty Bebeh” note?

    Dang dang and again I say dang.

  18. Redzilla: OMG. You’re so right.

  19. HAHA Redz! So true!

    That Fewit is more eloquent at expressing his love than my own boyfriend at times, lol.

  22. I agree with lauowolf. I think ferrets should be the new valentine’s day mascot. I think this pic and the heart shaped nap illustrate what good love potential they have. I also think they have good slinky pepe le pue appeal but less stinky 🙂

  23. And if someone ended up not getting any valentines (sniff) they could always just assume the Valentine Ferrets had found something better to do with the cards.

  24. LOL Redzilla!!!

    Such sweet stinky babies!

    I’ll bet he wanted to attach that valentine to a 12 pack of toliet paper for his special lady to drag across the floor. Thats a romantic gift.

  25. This has got to be one of the cutest pictures I’ve ever seen on here. There is truly so much about ferrets to love that occasionally you even forget that they poop every two hours, wherever they can…

  26. I would love to get a valentine from a ferret!

  27. I would love to get a ferrett for Valentines! 🙂

  28. “There’s some Valentine confetti on your head – old on, I’ll get it out for you.”

  29. Wikkle fewits wif a wikkle valentine… awwwwwww.

  30. All Fur-ettes are beautiful, snuggly & sexy with their slinky ways.

    There SHOULD be a seperate catagory for fur-ettes on this site!

    My fur-ette Peewee is wiggling his little pink ears right now just thinking about a page devoted to fur-ettes!

  31. Cute. (for extra long rats, that is…)
