  1. AuntieMame says:

    Are those guys old enough to be borned yet???

  2. Elizabeth says:

    hehe i love the little high five by the middle one. But they are soooo cute and fuzzy. And you know the one of the left is gonna be the trouble maker =)

  3. Michelle says:

    Good lo’ that’s cute.

  4. Hello Kitty says:

    Those bebeh bellies are to die for, so moshe pink skin showing, so little time, the middle and the right are playing footsies!!!

  5. Damn, Meggity Moo, I wish *I* had written that hovertext… LOL

  6. Make mine extra squirmy, please!

  7. plotting world domination much?
    as soon as they get out of that cup…

  8. Nah, they’re not cats.

  9. Juniper Jupiter says:

    POP POP POP goes the weasels the weasels!!!


    TOO KYOOT by the way (even if they do give off a ‘tinky back odor after being descented, but that’s just me)

  10. snorglepup says:

    I’ll have what she’s having.

  11. WOW! I’ve never seen a bebeh ferret befo’! *SPLODE*

  12. I’ll have a Cute Overload please. Three parts baby ferrets, one part adorable kitten, and a dash of bunny. Garnish with a sprig of puppy. Shaken, not stirred.

  13. There should be three lil’ umbrellas in that drink.

  14. Three baby ferrets walk into a bar . . .

  15. They’re so kah-yoot! I like how they don’t look too little to be messed with. They look like they can handle it. That way I don’t get sad for them.

  16. oh my god! oh my god!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

  17. binky-mama says:

    Bebeh knee-socks!!!

  18. I’ve never seen baby ferrets before–so cute!

    I think my favorite part is the pinkish round belly on each of these little ones, although the paw squished up against the glass is not to be ignored. Look at those tiny paw pads!

  19. fish eye no miko says:

    Wow, I didn’t know ferrets came in that size! Awww…!
    Can I have mine on the rocks?

  20. This triple shot is WAY too strong. Needs warning label. Overdosing on cuteness so badly, I’m expecting a hangover tomorrow morning.

  21. OMG Meg the hover text … Too Funny.

  22. Oh Crap!

    Once again CO makes my head implode!

  23. I’m with you, Teho:


  24. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    I have a two-ferret limit, especially if I have to drive somewhere later that evening.

  25. Are you kidding?! Baby ferrets?

    A new and fantastic addition to CO. Some good pickin’s here today. What fun!

  26. Sure, it looks relaxing, but ferret drinking to excess is still a problem. Remember, know when to say when!



  28. Laurent says:

    Zomg! Are they deaf as well?

  29. so teeny tiny!

  30. I have never even SEEN a baby ferret before, EVER. Now that I have…all I can say is…gfkfjklgdfgkgjfugfiryghrskzzzzz!

    (That’s me having a seizure from SEEING THAT PICTURE OMG)

  31. momof2kitties says:

    Teeniest of ferrets:”Oh hai! My brother to my left haz teh belleh cleavage. You would like to kees it, no?”

    me: “Yesyesyesyesyes!!!!!1!!!!”

  32. Raemie L. says:


    @Blinky-mama: Ankle socks?
    No, not even… these bebeh ferrets are half socks!

  33. Theresa says:

    I do believe these qualify as “teeny-tiny-toony.”

  34. scooterpants says:

    call me a cab, i’ve been over served.

  35. ANKLETS!

  36. The one in the middle is going “Ehn! I need more elbow room, here. I’m slipping. Wah, wah, wah. Oh, just put me back in my bed!”

    The one on the left (whilst pondering world domination): “Get to the back of the glass you whiner! I’ll take care of everything.”

    The one on the right: “Whatev”

  37. Good thing I had some food in my stomach before that one. That’s a strong swig of cute in a glass.

  38. binky-mama says:

    @ Raemie L.- Right you are! Is there such a thing as a toe sock?

  39. Anne Boleyn says:

    Yep. The only thing better than those bebbehs is the over text!

  40. Ms. Scarlet says:

    Oh my…I’m going to need a cab home after this one! Gonna be groggy in the morning~

  41. I shall beep your pink little bellies.

  42. AuntieMame says:

    *Is there such a thing as a toe sock?*

    As a matter of fact, yes, there is. I bought a couple pair to wear with my high-heeled clogs, to keep them from rubbing blisters all over my toes.

  43. Brak_Silverbone says:

    What, no olive?

  44. hon glad says:

    It’s quarter to three,
    There’s no one in the place
    except you and me.
    So set’em up, Joe,
    I’ve got a little story
    You oughta know.

  45. /Long/ time lurker, first time commenter because OMG, BABY FERRETS! SQUEE!! Oh my god, the cute, soooooo adorable! *kisses their bellies and beeps their wee little noses*

    @Laurent: Yep, deaf until they’re about 34 days old. Also, all ferrets are born white and begin to show their adult colour at about 3 weeks.

  46. bookmonstercats says:


  47. can’t…breathe…..

    holy crap holy crap holy crap! i’m glad they can’t hear at that age, because they’d be deaf from all the squealing around them 😉

  48. Raemie L. says:

    More than you’d really care to know about “socks”. 😉

    Binky-mama – Haha, I had to look it up. Web searches brought up mostly this kind of “toe sock”:

    The site I posted before called them “toe half socks”. I’m guessing these are similar to AuntieMame’s?

    There’s also this little “toe cover”:

    Also called “toe socks” (at least on the site):

    Perhaps by “toe socks” (compared to the “half socks” link) you meant something like this “toe cap”?:

    And then, there’s the thong sock. Yeah.

    That’s enough about socks from me. I need a ferret & tonic or something now.

  49. We staging *hic* an intervenshon.

  50. laverne says:

    i love you, I love you, I, love you! I LOVE YOU! Som cute!!!


    [shifty eyes]


    Bring me *hic* anudder.

    That’s it. I’m getting arrested for a DUI this evening.

  52. P.S. Love the hovertext, too!

  53. Snorgle with care.

  54. snorglepup says:

    I shall be the designated snorgler.

  55. snorglepup says:

    OK. I don’t get out much.
    You kids want to splain the hovertext to me please?

  56. SnorglePup — it’s one of those things that will never be funny if it needs to be explained. In fact, I’d say you can probably count yourself very fortunate indeed if you don’t get it.

  57. snorglepup says:

    Another blissfully, ignorant moment…

  58. yankeebird says:

    @ hon glad

    You have great taste in music! Love that song. 🙂

  59. Whew, after the week I’ve had with no air in my house, 98+ degrees, inside and out…..I need a double quick!!!! Yeah, yeah, I know, I don’t drink much, it will go to my head, but ya know, sometimes ya just gotta live a little.

    AAHHH, (smacking lips) that’s “cute” refreshment. Now where is the floor so I can lie down?

  60. Ah! The bellehs! The slanty eyes! The pink skin overlaid with white fuzz! TEH QTE! Times 3, even! *ded*

  61. Tiny. Baby. KITTYRATS!!!!!! Want.

  62. ThreeCatNight says:

    Hey, gimme one for the road!
    They look good to me; I’ll drink to that!
    *hic-hic* ‘Scuse me.

  63. Intoxicating. I feel loopy just looking at them! The legs of the one on the right are completely ridiculous — they look like little trousers or something.

  64. AuntieMame says:

    Yep, Raemie, those are exactly like mine, except mine are more like nylon stockings than socks (made from finer yarn).

    Although when I was a teenager, I had a pair of those garishly striped socks with toes, too. o.0

    snorglepup, the hover text is in reference to a drinking game. I understand that you can play it when you watch Bob Newhart, too, although I forget the trigger phrase. In this case, I assume the reference is to the President, although he is not the only person ever to say nuke-u-lar. He’s just the most visible example.

  65. So sweet…but I have a sudden and inexplicable urge to knit them sweaters. They look chilly.

  66. Look at the dude on the left… giving his best Tyra Banks FIERCE face! You work, little guy.

  67. zeldapie says:

    Lurve the peenk paws.

    *waves back at middle dude

    Hi hi hi!!!

  68. GreedySkunk says:

    Aaahhh!! Little bebeh carpet sharklings! Since they can’t even reach your ankles yet, they go directly for the spaces between your toes.

    I really wish I weren’t at work right now. I want to snuggle with my (grown) fuzzies so badly!

  69. The baby ferrets are so adorale and teeny-tiny.

  70. Glass of baby ferretts made my head explode all over my desk. Who is gonna clean this up?

    […the braintender! – Ed.]

  71. paw up dewd

  72. Well since were talking ferret drinks and hot weather
    Never Ever ever drink a margarita when you are dehydrated.
    They go down fast and so do you!

  73. Melissa says:

    Booyah hovertext.

    And as a mother of 4 ferrets, I can say with absolute certainty that those bellies will remain nommable for those guys’ entire lives.

  74. omg, baby ferrets, and white ones! too cute, faces only a mama could love!

  75. Noelegy says:

    Here, they’re small, take three.

  76. bookmonstercats says:

    RaemiL… I am asking this very carefully indeed….. why do you know so much about socks?

  77. Re hysterical hovertext: 1/20/09 cannot arrive soon enough.

    Re bebeh ferretses: Pinkiest feets evar rule!

  78. Camel Toes '87 says:


    I luv weezlez!

  79. Raemie L. says:

    LOL! Umm, let’s just say that I like having my attention diverted. [shifts eyes and twiddles thumbs]

  80. Same again, please.

  81. you know you’ve had too much to drink when…. you are past the pink elliefants..only to see waving pink weezies..must go to detox..OR NOT

  82. Pademelon says:


    *puts as new desktop background*

    I’m a glutton for punishment.

  83. Katrina says:

    Barkeep-I’ll have ‘three fingers’ of ferret-hold the ice. Yeah, they can stand up if they want, just use a short glass.

  84. January says:
