    I would love to coat you in pets and kisses.

  2. I would love to wear a mink.

    Do you think he would object to draping himself on my shoulders and taking a nap?

  3. They do appear to make excellent neck pillows. Consider taking one along for your next long flight.

    According to my hubby, minks may look cute but they are nasty, nasty critters. So you might want to reconsider having one that close to your face. Just sayin’.

  5. Aw. This little mink stole my heart…

  6. 8D Chubby perfect little baby!

  7. just wondering—- what gets thrown at us—-a rock or the mink
    bit confused I”m about, would’nt want either thrown at me

  8. If you raise them from kits, they’re a lot like ferrets! Ferrets on steroids. And cocaine. They’re close cousins, after all, it’s just that wild mink are tiny super-predators. They’re also very, very intelligent.

    My grandfather raised mink and foxes for fur during the depression -SORRY – not MY choice. Anyhow, my mom was a little kid and said even the baby mink although SO cute were SO vicious. Their claws and teeth were razor sharp. She always wanted to pet and cuddle them but was warned not to go near.

  10. same here. NOMTOM….inquiring minds?

  11. The difference being that mink were never domesticated, while European ferrets have been domesticated since at least medieval times. It’s a big difference.

  12. Oh, I know, but mink have such an undeserved reputation. They’re as fierce as a wild predator needs to be. When I was still volunteering at a wildlife rehab center, a little orphaned mink was brought in. Sweet little baby.

    Weasels and ferrets and mink are some of my favorite animals in the world. It makes me weirdly sad when people call them mean, when what they really are is perfect little carnivores doing exactly what they have to… if that makes any sense? XD I have this compulsive need to defend their honor or something. I dunno. Ignore me. *hides under the keyboard*

    *Drags Zeki out from under the keyboard”. Thank you Zeki, you are correct. We are so quick to label animals as “mean” or “nasty” when they are just acting according to their natures. And if someone crammed me into a little cage before killing me for my skin I’d be wanting to scratch and bite also. As for the wild ones: they bite out of fear or to get food, not because they are mean.

  14. it was a 300 mm lens then a cropped photo lol! so quite Far :-)
