  2. Bouviegal says:

    The girl in me says “squeee!”
    The print buyer in me says, “this image’d be great to print–it’s all of two colors– a pink PMS and Black, and it’d look and feel great printed on Curious Touch Soft Milk Cover, with just a wee touch of gloss aqueous on the eyes and a few of the bubbles.”
    *taps temple thoughtfully*
    Anyone think there’s a market out there for a touchable greeting card of a ferret in the bath?

  3. harlemgrrl says:

  10. That post is all wet.

  11. katiedid says:

    “Oh Nos!!! I stayed in to long and lost all my colors..” 😦

  12. Katrina says:

    Bubbles? Ferret’s got bubbles? I hope s/he gets rinsed off!

  13. chanpon says:

    Uh oh, the bath is staring back at me!

  14. Katrina says:

    I hope he doesn’t shrink in there-no agitation-no agitation, you’ll turn him/her into felt!

  15. Hey, ferty, you can’t make the club in the tub.

  16. carol m. says:

    Ferret, I volunteer to scrub behind your tiny ears!

  17. smileycat says:

    I’se up to my neck, oh heck!

    (Ummmm; I think I’m kleen enuff already: I will leeve Misture Cutesy Ferret to haz the baff all by himseylfe!!!) *grabs a towel and runs down the hall with a kwikniss*

  19. @Bouviegal – I would absolutely buy such a card!

  20. These Scrubbing Bubbles seem extra aggressive today…I bet my tile’s going to sparkle.

  21. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    ZOMG! Who got a picture of Billy Idol in the bath?

  22. @Argyle, he’s crying MOAR! MOAR! MOAR! bubbles.

  23. (Nice day for a WHITE WEASEL!!!!)

  24. Aw, squeaky clean little ferret! Don’t go down the drain, little dude!

  25. Space Cowgirl says:

    Oh, a ferret marinating in Newcastle! Thank you, just what I wanted for Caturday. *nom*

  26. Space Cowgirl says:

    (Theresa, that was terrible. Have urge to play Rock Band 2 now!)

  27. dylanimore says:

    Yuckies. I don’t like ferrets. 😦 Ah well. *hugs Caturday cats* I love the nosicle on this one, though.

  28. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    @Theresa: Here at, we like our bad boys lean, mean, and clean.

  29. Von Zeppelin says:

    He needs a mask and a leetle snorkel.

  30. skippymom says:

    So how does a ferret celebrate Caturday? For what exactly is he getting ready? Does he have a date with the cat next door?

  31. @SpaceCowgirl, we aims to please. :mrgreen:

  32. Ooh! For some reason I saw tis and my first thought was, “Look, a big bowl of milky ferret!” Mm.

  33. That would be a lot cuter if I didn’t know how much ferrets love to BITE!!

  34. ps I did a cute thing as well today chez moi ~ doormice

  35. kibblenibble says:

    Do ferrets enjoy baths? Heem looks so happy and squeaky clean! Awww!

  36. Lerrinus says:

    Methinks this needs a matchinks tag and the ferret needs a smooch on its nose!

  37. @Theresa and Argyle, you’re killing me today. Now I must watch Dusto McNeato’s literal-video version of “White Wedding.” For those of you who haven’t seen it, it’s well worth a watch, though nothing can compare to his cover of a-ha’s “Take on Me.”

  38. @Debg, I like “Total Eclipse of the Heart”: “Arthur Fonzarelli’s got an army of clones!”

    [Me Schmoop & I both give that vid two enthusiastic LOLs up. It started out as Hogwarts, now it’s Lord of the Flies… I hated that book… – Ed.]

  39. what a good little boy he is!!

  40. ~A special Caturday haiku to rescue ferret from circus limbo~

    Hastening to cleanse
    Purging recent costumed shame
    Saturday bathtime

  41. Haven’t we had enough of the freaking weasels?

  42. francesk says:

    @ Gledwood
    Nonsense, the only time a ferret will bite is if it feels threatened or if it’s been abused. If one is nippy, a scruff and a hiss will teach it in only a couple of times that that is not acceptable, provided none of the above happened. They need socialization taught to them, just like a puppy or a kitty.
    They don’t stink if you keep their bedding and litter box clean, and don’t bathe them too much (sorry Mr Weasel), and they don’t bite if they’re treated right.
    They are, however natural born clowns, and that guy below in the clown suit, dressed in his national costume.

  43. claudemarie says:

    Axe? Poor Ferret… that polka dot costume warped his little brain.
    Otherwise, he is adorable!!

  44. Theresa- ouch. My big fund raising concert is tonight, wish a Peep good luck!

    Maybe that is a milk bath- slurp, slurp.

    Oh, Jeef, dear, there is no such thing as enough freaking weasels, imho. Hang in there, these obsessions usually only last a few days to a week, other animals will follow. Last week it was bananas- one week it was dogs being annoyed with treats. Obsessions pass.

  45. Oh crap. Here I am procrastinating on my favorite website and all it served to do was remind me I need to clean the bathroom.

  46. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m confused… is that a cat??

  47. @Claudemarie: either that or he is a middle school ferret… 😉

    Seriously, Axe is huge with the 11-14 year old boys in my area. You can’t drive by a middle school without gagging on the stuff.

    As for Mr. Bubblehead ferret… WANT!

  48. Queequeg says:

    Float, float, float, like a baby stoat.

    [ 😆 – Ed.]

  49. @Jeef, where are the freaking weasels? You’d think they’d be on YouTube.

    Report back, Katrina! What’s the program?

  50. skippymom says:

    Mary, of course that’s a cat. If Meg posts it on a Caturday, it’s a cat, right? Maybe somebody needs new glasses….

  51. Katrina says:

    Uh, yeah, yeah, that’s right skippymom ,it a, a, skinny cat! *snerk* Beware, Mary some people wish to steer you down the garden path- that is indeed a Capuchin monkey in there.

  52. Noelegy says:

    Ferrets will not only tolerate a big kiss on the mouf, they’ll return it! Ferret kisses are sweet and freely given.

  53. Noelegy says:

    P.S. The only time a ferret has ever bitten me hard enough to break the skin was a baby ferret in a pet store. They sell them (in my opinion) at too young an age, before they’re properly socialized, because everyone wants a cute baby. My three ferrets never bit me hard enough to even hurt.

  54. skippymom says:

    Katrina, now that I take another look, I think it’s actually a Slow Loris. Or a goat.

  55. Why Capuchin monkehs? Why not Franciscan or Dominican monkehs?

    [Or, say, Shaolin? – Ed.]

  56. skippymom says:

    Good luck with the concert, Katrina!

  57. That little mouth says “no want”.

  58. Von Zeppelin says:

    Katrina, hope the concert goes well, and many bucks flow in.

    I’ve bee trying for years to get my “Concerto in F Minor for Steam Calliope, Penny Whistle, and Sledgehammer” performed, but the classical music establishment is all against me because I’m an unrecognized genius. It’s been especially hard since Zubin Mehta took out that protective order against me after I waited for him in the back seat of his Mercedes with my CD of the concerto.

  59. For some reason I think his bathwater should taste of strawberries and cream…

  60. VonZep, Philistines!

  61. Are you sure that ferret is not sayin “Hey, a little privacy here!” 😈

  62. mmmhm! its bubble time.

  63. DaytimeDeb says:

  67. Paunchie says:
