WAIT A MIN—that’s a ferret.

They are sooooooo weasely—trying to get in on all the Easter action… Even the porcelain rabbit is surprised…

OMG that's a FERRET!

Hilary S., we caught this just in time.



  1. happy, hoppy Easter …


  2. bunny?

  3. he looks a little slothy there in the face but how long did he wear those ears?? Interesting pic, and a Happy Easter to ALL!!!

  4. Awww!! When I first saw this I thought it really WAS a bunny. o.o

    BUT theeeen the TITLE.

  5. Funny bunny! Love it!

  6. Now that’s what I call a ferbunny or a bunret…well when you have lemons make lemonaide. When you don’t have a rabbit grab the ferret…

  9. michellemybelle says:

    These are the bestest Easter pics ever – you’ve outdone yerself, Meg!

    Happy Easter to all the Peeps!

  10. I love the holidays that make it acceptable to dress pets.
    It is always amusing to watch the outcome, lol.

  11. Is Hilary S. just a pseudonym for “Hilarious”? cuz that’s what this pic is!! heee!
    I second MMB’s thoughts…these are excellent pics to post Meg!

  12. lol. this is one clever ferret, but he better not try donning a turkey costume at thanksgiving!

  13. Bunny-Ferret: Yo, what up.

    Porcelain Rabbit: ZOMGWTF

    B-F: Did it hurt? When you fell from heaven?

    PR: *flees*

    Thanks for this. I needed some ferret funny this a.m.

  14. Ferret: Look at my ears!

    Rabbit: Look at my ‘tocks!

  15. I don’t think I understand the pose of the porcelain bunny. Someone explain please–is it just frolicking and rolling in the eastertide ‘meadow?’ Showing submisch to the ferret??

    D’aww. Subterfuge. Of course, being a CuteOverload ferret, he’s not hunting bunnies any more. Oh no, he just wants the eggs.

  17. R. Moore says:

    That is BY FAR the cutest picture of a ferret I’ve ever seen.


  18. that is so cute . i love it

  19. SeaBreeze says:

    OMG! This guy is so Eastery!! Happy Easter, everybunny~ =)

  20. You can see that he’s a baby – by his little nose. My babies have grown out of that stage. But still just as cute!

  21. Lee Gibson says:

    It’s Kiki! The next frame, he’ll be twitching on the ground in ferret shock!


  22. Catsquatch says:

    Costumed Comedy!

    That just cracked me up!!!

  23. fluidstatic says:

    @ athenae — Oh, yesh, ferret pickup artist. I love.

  24. that ferret should be on the cadbury egg commercial with all the other animals trying out to be the easter bunny. he would totally win the right to be the cadbury bunny!

  25. Here comes Frankie-ferret-tail
    Hopping down the ferret trail
    Hippity hoppity Easter’s on it’s way!!

  26. That is wunnerfully anerable!

  27. I usually don’t like ferrets that much, but this is sooo adorable!

  28. I speak from experience in trying to photograph ferrets… it’s damn hard! Props to the photographer, and to the ferret for dealing with it.

  29. Ewwwwwww… easter ferret. Ewwwwwwwwww… ferret.

    “I wanna Easter egg, I wanna Easter egg, I wanna Easter egg!”
    I’m the Easter Bunny,hoo-ray,
    Happy Easter Bunny, hoo-ray!
    I am going looney-tooney, touched in the head,
    This whole thing is screwy, I should’ve stood in bed!
    (With apologies to Bugs Bunny)

    Tor, I don’t know about this particular bunny, but my mother has a remarkably similar bunny figurine that we lovingly refer to as “The Birthing Bunny.” Perhaps the ferret is her OB?

  32. WHAT??? nobody noticed Egg Mountain in the background?? perhaps they’re on Easter Island…..

  33. SO CUTE!!! I just love ferts…I doubt any of my three ferts would let me do that. SO PRECIOUS! Thanks for the submish. 🙂

  34. This picture had my husband and I laughing for minutes, but what really made it for me were the awesome expressions this caused on his face. It was as though both of his eyebrows were battling for dominance, seeking a truce so that both could raise, and then battling again. Then he literally curled into a little ball because his head couldn’t take the stress. ^_^
    Thanks, CO!

  35. Jessalyn says:

    He looks a little lost…

  36. geekmidwinter says:

    He looks so sad and so sweet! It looks like he’s asking “Are you my mommy?” I want to hug him to death!
