    Okay… 1, 2, 3… 4? Right?

    OMG, this is soooo cute! Looks like the same color (and number!) of ferrets a friend used to have. I think the most ferrets he had at one time was like 6 or 8, I kinda lost track because they were in several different rooms.

    I count 4. But I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another layer.

    Are these the overstocked ferrets.

    It was almost a yawn wave!

      Yes…they caught it from the 3 cats the other day!

      I think I count 5 ferrets – three in the top row (the yawning one, a sleeping one, and the white one) and two below (a sleeping one with tousled fur, then the one pointing his toes and yawning).

    I was the happy/partially-crazy parent of ferrets for nearly 15 years. At one point, I think we had a dozen at once. We volunteered at a shelter and kept bringing home “foster ferrets”….all of whom became a permanent part of our family. We would find them in the strangest locations, and we had a really ferret-proofed home! We’d find them on the second shelf of the towel closet folded up in the fresh towels, we’d find them in the laundry hamper, in the pillows on the bed, behind bookcases, under bookcases….we made furniture choices based on fear that they’d get trapped in something like a traditional sofa because of their love of hiding! While I think ferrets aged me (most of ours were on meds and needed constant care a good portion of their too-short lives), I also think they kept me young because I had to constantly out-think them! Eventually, you give in and put bedding in the drawers, like this lovely parent did. This post brought back fond memories…..thank you, NTMTOM.

      I love ferrets, but there has got to be a special place in heaven waiting for you. Anyone who would take in so many “special needs” ferrets is a pretty spectacular person!

    Thank you @Beemoused! I have a feeling that when my time comes, I’m going to be asked to ferret-proof the rainbow bridge….not to keep ferrets out, but to ensure none slide off! 🙂

      Yes – they are slinkies with fur. My friend had one (that we actually got him for Christmas) that would literally launch himself at you when you opened the cage door. Had absolutely no fear, it was like being dive bombed by cuteness.

    I won’t take one out, I’d crawl in there with them! Carpet sharks. Knee socks with eyes.

    But … but … isn’t that the pan drawer underneath an oven? Acknowledging their abilities, how can even ferrets get in and out of something so tightly sealed? And, when one wants to use the oven, does one have to evict the ferrets — and somehow keep them out? So many questions.

      I believe it’s a drawer under a washing machine or dryer, which is prolly a little safer than a warming drawer under a stove :). I’m going with the theory that the peoples keeps the drawer open except when shooting weaselly videos.

      • George Michael Sherry May 13, 2016 / 3:49 am

        Aha. I’ve used a community laundry room for 40 years and am thus not “up” on current home laundry equipment. I didn’t realize washers or dryers come with drawers under them. And yes, it’d be more plausible if the people only closed the drawer in order to open it again, pretending it had been closed all along. Thanks, Amy.

    Okay – once this Ferret-in-a-drawer company turns a profit? They need to diversify.
    kittens in a drawer…
    bunnies in a drawer…
    not sure if puppies in a drawer would work – might need a focus group.
    maybe in winter they can offer offer turtles in a drawer (for hibernation)?

    • JenDeyan May 12, 2016 / 8:12 am

      I am 150% behind this idea. I also volunteer to be part of the focus group. I think the group will need hands-on access to all the potential products to make any informed determinations.
