Jocko is a spoiled rotten ferret. He has the “big cage” aka my main bathroom. He has 3 different beds, a gigantic tube to play in, a couple of stuffies and or course his food, water and litter box. Jocko gets to be the King of the Bathroom because he always uses the litter box except in the last 4 months he has discovered he can poop behind the door which remains open at all times and Mommy doesn’t notice it right away. Brat! This is his place so now we put newspaper down to catch the extra gifts behind the door. Yes – I don’t have the heart to put him in a real cage now. He would miss all the extra attention!
I have a half Plexiglas “door” that I put in when the bathroom is not being used by a human. Jocko gets to watch the traffic going by and he get lots of ear scratches and cuddles when a human does come in to use the facilities.
So, I went into the bathroom to run a bath and I was puzzled by Jocko’s position in his favorite bed. This bed, is his all time favorite even though he is really too big for it. I have several pictures of him hanging out of it; doing a nose plant over the side!
I went and got the camera before I gave him a poke to wake him up. He thinks bath time with Mommy is his special time. He will beg to be picked up even though he is very afraid of water. I give him ear skritches and hang a leg over the edge of the bath so he can lick it dry!
Back to the story! I am looking at him in the bed and I know it doesn’t look right. A gentle poke and Jocko wakes up. A slow stretch, and then he slithers off (not out) the bed. Silly Silly boy!
So it seems that Jocko wanted a “raised” bed and decided to fix his bed to meet the new criteria! He sniffed at the bed after I put it back upright! I am not sure I like the dirty look I got for my troubles! See if I let him lick my leg dry!
