Cute and Funny Ferret Commercials

I'm a youtube junkie when I have the time and today I want to share a couple of cute ferret commercials. Of course there's the funny Mountain Dew, Budweiser and Verizon ferret commercials (that often depict ferrets as vicious attack creatures), but these are cute and show ferrets (a little more) as they truly are:

Fursty Ferret (British ale ad):

(when ferrets DO run, this is about how it looks- never in a straight line)

Bounce Fabric Softener:

(cute ferret, but the gate is for show. Ferrets can climb over 30" high gates.)

That's all for now.

Coming soon- more lazy ferret pictures :)

Lazy Ferrets

I'm sorry- I forgot to post these pics here. These were taken last month. This is what ferrets do 80% of their day (ferret-pile and sleep in "dead possum" position).

Coupons

Who doesn't use coupons (when they are for something you actually use)?

First, a little story, and then a free coupon link...

My story.... a few nights ago (about 2am) I went to Jack-n-the-Box for midnight munchie food. They didn't have any coffee made so I couldn't get my iced cappachino.. it gets better. I got home, went online, and left a comment in their online "feedback box". Today I check the mail and... Jack-n-the-Box has sent me a coupon for a free menu item (no combo-but still)... awesome, right? For once, "complaining" (stating the truth, actually), got me something. Now I can't decide if I want that iced cappachino or some chicken tenders. hehe.

Free coupon link... for a free Kashi frozen entree. I found this link on the 3 Fat Chicks forum and filled it out. Kashi is known for their healthy, natural foods (I like their cereals). Here's a link for that free entree coupon - if you fill out the form and get a coupon, let me know. I'll do the same.

Take care!

What Happens in Ferret Village...

is usually pretty amusing ;)

Yesterday I set up a dig box for the boys. I already had old aquarium sand and a container ($5 from Walmart), so this was a good deal for both me and the fuzzies.

Here they are:

I orginally got the idea from The Holistic Ferret Forum. This is great because it provides enrichment (ferrets are natural diggers) even when they can't go outside. You can also use dirt, soil (but not with styrofoam or fertilizers), towels, plastic balls (ping pong or kids ball room), pebbles, beans (but too big to ingest), or rice (but not instant, which could cause a blockage).

If you have any ferret enrichment ideas, please post them here or on the Texas Ferret Group Forum.

Take care!

New Blogger

Welcome to my blog.

I'll say now that this blog won't be only about ferrets, though they are wonderful companion pets. I picked the name because my S.O. (significant other) refers to our house a ferret village (due to my fuzzies' hilarious antics).

I'll also say now that regardless of similar names, there is no relation between this blog and the Ferret Village forum- though I am a member of their forum and think its a wonderful community and resource (as are most ferret forums).

This could be considered my first "blog", though I have used online diaries/journals in the past, including LiveJournal, Myspace, Facebook, and more.

A bit about myself... I'm a college student/at-home mom/ferret owner (ferrent)/web designer/gamer (with no time to play).. and lots more.

My current daily internet haunts are:
The Holistic Ferret Forum
3 Fat Chicks on a Diet Weight Loss Community
Craigslist

Here's the current fuzzy population of my ferret village:

A little about the fuzzy residents of ferret village... they are on a natural diet (raw meat/bones and whole prey)/free roamers (in a ferret-proofed bedroom mostly)/chewers (love all things rubbery, like PS2 controllers and computer scroll buttons)/dookers (when playing, Weasel dooks like a clucking chicken and Slinky squeaks like a girl)/weasel war dancers/lap rats (Weasel lets anyone hold him and Slinky will walk up and fall asleep on your legs)... lots of which is so hilarious... that it can only be called ferret village. Only in a ferret village will you see ferrets dook and war dance, grab and shake rubber objects as dogs would, and wipe out many times (as ferrets can't jump far distances and aren't too coordinated)..

If you're reading, please say hi. We can talk ferrets or anything else. Have a great weekend!
