My ferrets had the most incredibly vicious fight.

They got these special treats for Christmas that are gear-shaped, long-lasting and smell like maple syrup. There's only one left, and they spend their playtime hiding it from each other. Po hides it, and then a few minutes later, Bela sneaks over and steals it, and hides it, and then Po steals it, and so on ad infinitum. They're clever, but they don't have the best attention span, and when one gets distracted, the other steals the treat.

Today, they forgot where it was hidden. So they spent an hour frantically searching in every hiding place (the couch, the dresser, the other dresser, my bed, my lap), hissing at each other when they deemed it appropriate. And then Bela found the treat, and Po snatched it away from her, which pissed her off to no end, so now they're both in time-out. I'm just glad Bela didn't have a chance to pull out her knife. (Yes, she has one-- a plastic knife she's stashed somewhere in my couch. She pulls it out when she gets excited.)

It's like I've got two-year-olds.

I realized today that I haven't ever (to my knowledge) posted ferret pictures here. I've posted them in the photoblog, but not here. THAT MUST BE REMEDIED.

So here you go! These are the bright shining faces that stare at me in the early morning, waiting for me to get up and feed them.

And here they are. )
