“♬We Wish You A Ferret Christmas…”

Part of the fun of the Christmas holiday season is hunkering down in your cozy spot while the snow’s comin’ down outside. Like these Friendly Ferrets!

Now, as You Can See by This Next Chart…

… ferret one represents first quarter shipments of rotary knobule bippulators, ferret two represents population growth seasonally cross-averaged with toenail density, and ferret three represents the weight differential of three quarts of Miracle Whip on the surface of Mars. Any questions?

Yes, Ferrets Love Snow (Part II)

Maybe you didn’t see this post from yesterday– it’s about cold weather and how it can affect our Furry Friends. SOME of them, anyway. And there were some Gonzo Ferrets in there, and, well, we have some MORE Gonzo Ferrets, why because we do. Kate S. says, “With all the snow we decided to bring some inside in a kiddie pool for my ferrets!”

“Dasher (the black ferret) is only about 4 months and has never seen snow before yet he dived right in as soon as he saw it!”

“The others, Vincent (in the last photo) and Jack (the all white ferret,) have played in snow before but it took them a while to hop in! Thanks for everything you do to bring Cuteness and happiness to the world!!”



We’re getting seriously Snow Ferret crazy heah. “Hi! Here is a short video of my Teenage Ferret Sisters, “Minty” and “Honey Badger” playing in a pan of snow my son and I brought inside for them yesterday. They loved it! I hope this video gives your fans a smile. : )” -Eliza and Lukas O. of Powell, OH., where it’s REALLY COLD. Keep those Ferrets bundled up!

Christmas Ferrets Because Why Not

The final week Christmas Countdown is underway, so we decided to celebrate with some Whackadoodle Ferret ACTION, courtesy of Melody M.

“The feature photo and the next two capture my ferret Khibah in all his Christmas glory with Santa,” she says.

“The rest are of my ferret Tytoo, playing Eskimo girl. All photos by Vince. Wishing you the Cutest Christmas Ever!”

One Post. FOUR Rules.

Two! Two! Two Ferrets In One!

“Dear all, please find attached a picture of my ferrets Ron and Puff (Ron on the bottom and Puff on the top.) They are sleeping (surprise surprise) in their favourite place, in their purple hammock! I do believe that they are covering the following Rules of Cuteness:

#20: Showing your paw pads is cute.
#46: A yin-yang position for two animals is cute.
#49: If you curl up into a circle when you sleep, that’s cute.
#99: Peeping tongues are cute.*

Kind Regards, Kelly, Ron and Puff, BIG fans from England.

[*Note: Don’t see the peeping tongues, but we’ll let it slide. -Ed.]

Flashback Friday

The Flashback Friday submishe inbox is hopping lately! We always knew CO peeps were AWW-some.

“Since the Spring of 2000”, Motor City Ferrets nose a thing, or thousand, about rescuing ferrets…

But it all really started back in 1978…. :::waves magical wayback wand:::

1978 Summer
“That’s me in the photo, with the first ferret I ever met on a trip to Colorado. We stopped at a rest stop and the baby ferret and it’s owners were enjoying a rest on a lovely summer day. As I always did whenever a furry critters was nearby, I ran in for a snuggle – and of course my Dad was ready with the camera! I totally forgot about the encounter until my Dad presented me with the photo, enlarged and framed, about a year after I opened a ferret shelter (2001). Today I’m 42, and over the past 14 years I’ve rescued nearly 1000 ferrets.” -Nanci F.
