Q:do you own a ferret or just really like them?
I have a white ferret (a lot like the one in this gif—he’s the one in my last ferret related post) named Tuukka, after the Boston Bruins’ goalie.
Sadly, ferrets are not legal in CA, so my ferret lives in CT with his “sister” Leelu and his adoptive parents who take extremely good care of him. He’ll be moving to Seattle soon, though to hang out with people who make comics and eat all their erasers.
Few things make me truly happy and most of what does is nearly impossible to come by. I guess that’s what makes it so special.
Or maybe I prefer to be unhappy? Maybe I only allow myself to be made happy by things that are difficult to obtain because I’d rather not be content. If I am content, I might stop growing. If I am unhappy, I will continue to push forward.
On the other hand, ferrets.
The ferrets, they’re so nice.
"Oh hey buddy, I notice you’ve got a brand new wireless mouse there. Looks really shiny and soft. I bet you won’t mind if I just eat that scroll wheel, will you? NAH YOU WON’T MIND."
"What this? A glass of water? I bet you’d enjoy it more if it were sideways. There, that’s better."
"Wow, all these bottles of shampoo and body wash and conditioner are lined up really nicely. That’s not very organic though. Looks a bit clinical. Let me just knock them over into your bath tub for you."
"These remote control buttons are To. Die. For. You gotta try them. Just—just a bite."
"Um, just so you know, I’ve established a poop corner in the living room. And in the kitchen. And in the bedroom. And a second one in the living room because I forgot I had already made the first one."
"I established separate pee corners in all of those rooms as well."
"Your shoes? I needed them under the couch for a really important meeting with your keys, a few kibbles of food, and all the pencils in the house that I haven’t eaten the erasers off of yet."
"I know you don’t need to wake up until eight in the morning, but check out this amazing sound I can make just by flipping over my water bowl, repeatedly!"
