[7k] [11k] [6k] However, that doesn't mean they didn't get along just fine. Here they are curled up together on the couch, in a dresser drawer, and even in their own bed.
[10k] [11k] When Merlin was a baby, he had the love of socks which many ferrets share.
[8k] [10k] [7k] Bandit seems to love to pose. Here she is in nice front, side, and top views.
[8k] A box full of styrofoam packing "peanuts" can be fun, as Merlin demonstrates, especially if it has a handy portal cut into the side. Just be sure your ferret doesn't chew the foam and swallow pieces.
[7k] Ferrets love to crawl into and through things. Cardboard tubes, like dryer hoses, are fun to play in; here's Merlin rolling around on the floor near one.
[9k] Sadie, another sable female, is blind due to bad cataracts, but as soon as the shower is turned on, she shows up to lick Chelli or Dean's wet feet.
[5k] The largest of the clan is Taz, a sable male who dances all the time and is always ready to give a kiss or accept a treat.
[4k] White male Gizmo, shown here in a very devilish pose, is the most vocal of the group, always dooking and dancing at his humans' feet.
[4k] He's also good at sitting up, a trick most ferrets can learn easily.
[13k] [6k] Renegade likes to sit on the couch, especially when the cushions form a cozy cave or he has a favorite toy to play with.
[4k] Sleeping, of course, is a fine art to a ferret. Is he really comfortable like that?
[15k] Mythril holds great affection for her wild cousins -- or at least stuffed imitations. Here she is hugging a stuffed Black-Footed Ferret toy.
[16k] Good friends Swamp and Nuke are shown here sleeping together, tumbling out of their "cat tower" bedroom as they doze.
[23k] [15k] Mythril is fascinated by the bead garland on this Christmas tree, even after she's pulled it off the tree. Christmas trees and ferrets mix just fine, but don't use tree preservatives, and keep your fragile ornaments out of reach.
[21k] She does have other toys she likes, including this bone, which she's been caught in the act of carrying off.
[11k] [9k] Adrienne also likes playing with human toys, such as the portable phone or the microwave.
[15k] She'll also pose on the toilet seat, being careful not to fall in.
[13k] Charlene's two males, Clarence and Henry, can't jump like her females can, but they can stretch and hoist themselves to just about anywhere. The desk is a favorite play area.
[16k] Albino Edith enjoys helping with the laundry. As you can see, her idea of helping is a lot like lounging.
[21k] Zoey, a sable female, likes to help... uh... "redecorate" the Christmas tree.
[20k] When Nina was a baby, she loved to go for walks. Unfortunately, Nina was lost to lymphosarcoma at the tender age of 2.5 years.
[21k] He's not dead, just resting -- flat on his back, paws in the air.
[14k] It's a ferret's job to find out what's in coffee mugs left sitting around, but this young sable kit takes his task more seriously than most.
[12k] This ferret does a remarkable impression of the Coca-Cola polar bear. A lick or two of soda is okay for ferrets, most of whom have quite the sweet tooth, but too much is bad for their teeth.
[8k] Velocity has the usual ferret fascination with feet. Here he is hiding behind one of Sean's.
[7k] [6k] He has learned a few more unusual skills, though -- here he is pulling the plastic lid off a coffee can and tossing it aside. He must be disappointed to discover that all it holds is clean litter.
[8k] [9k] A dryer hose provides plenty of fun, whether you're inside it or just playing nearby.
