I'm sure in a few years we'll look back at laugh at this . Ferrets do not like to be bathed. However if you hold or pinch them by the scruff of the neck they will fall asleep.
This does not hurt them in any way. Now what we learned today is that ferrets that only weigh 1 pound a piece don't fall asleep. Sometimes they yawn but never actually fall asleep.
Now I don't know how many of you have bathed a ferret before, but they have very very very sharp little claws, and they feel like little razor blades. Ouch!!
So Josie was the first to get a "bath" she didn't fall asleep, not even a yawn. So we gave her a bath, and while we were rinsing her off what do you think she did???? Can you guess?
Well your not gonna believe it, well maybe you will, your right she went to the bathroom in my sink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hear David saying Uh Oh, and Deanna saying ewww. Meanwhile I'm the one rinsing the soap off and using my bare hands.. (who do you think should have been saying ewww?!)
Next came Midnight, she was easier, she seems more docile than the others, but don't let her fool ya. She is a scrapper for sure.
She did fine with her bath, almost got David a couple of times but it was all good.
Next was Crystal our older ferret, she will be 6 in January. She was easy. although she woke up too.
Well next was Angel the albino. She didn't fall asleep at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in fact just as I put the soap on her, she wiggled out of David's hands. We finally got her done.
All 4 ferrets, bathed and ready to go to bed.
Now to get them back to the cage. Which wasn't really hard at all.
that being done, we were ready to just relax for a minute, as this was also the first day they were introduced to the whole house, this is another blog for another day..What????
We have to keep you coming back for more, don't we??
Have a nice day
