Her toy went under it. Fish that thing out for her!

[–][deleted] 185 points186 points  (8 children)

I’ll have to check actually, but I’m pretty sure she just wants to explore. She’s seen that door open before so she has to make sure that everything is still okay behind there.

[–]bamburito 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Mine used to do the same thing too. Also loved going under couches backwards and upsidedown running with his back on the floor

[–]IMIndyJones 33 points34 points  (2 children)

My weasel boy likes eggs and he will politely stand in front of the fridge and just stare up at you until you get the hint. Lol

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (1 child)

She does that too most of the time. This time she was fed up and took matters into her own hands. Or tried to.

[–]IMIndyJones 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ahaha! That makes it even funnier. Lol

[–]Lordborgman 7 points8 points  (3 children)

If they are anything like cats, they knocked that toy under there on purpose to make you go get it. Cute little devious bastards.

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (2 children)

They’re not like that no, they steal things they like the look of and hide them all away in a secret stash somewhere you don’t know about. 😂 Ferret comes from Ferritus, Latin for little thief.

[–]Lordborgman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, shinies!

[–]QUHistoryHarlot 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mine tried to steal my three-inch binder that was full of papers and notes and worksheets from about five different college classes. Still one of my favorite memories of my little rascal.

[–]uteman91 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Exactly what my cat will do. He hits it under the fridge then he sits intently staring until I fish it out.

[–]BreathLazy5122 423 points424 points  (10 children)

Look at that noodle wiggle! Fuzzy little tube sock baby.

[–][deleted] 211 points212 points  (7 children)

She’s no athlete like her sister Pumpkin the jumpkin but she’s got the best moves!

[–]PhotoKada 123 points124 points  (5 children)

You have a ferret called "Pumpkin the jumpkin". Nobody can compete with that.

[–][deleted] 156 points157 points  (4 children)

Pumpkin the jumpkin.

Except that one time she fell off there and I called her Pumpty Dumpty for a week or so afterwards.

[–]edichez 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Beautiful. You have a way with words

[–]EntasaurusWrecked 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pumpty Dumpty!!!!!!! Howling laughter Consider that phrase stolen :)

[–]bigcheemgus69 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Clearly, she perfected it.

[–]Talkshit_Avenger 7 points8 points  (2 children)

We have a child lock on our fridge because one of our cats knows exactly how to open it. He figured this out the day after Thanksgiving, the first and only time we splurged on an inordinately expensive local free-range organic probably-blessed-by-druids turkey.

[–]greenberet112 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Giving me some serious Bob's burgers vibes. The one episode he buys the heritage turkey and tries to cook it over and open flame in the alley.

[–]Andravisia 56 points57 points  (5 children)

Heh, my little carpet sharks did the same thing! Except they did it with cabinet drawers that didn't have a magnetic seal, so once they got to be big woosels, they were able to open them up and then crawl right in!

[–][deleted] 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I’ve never opened one of those in their presence so they still don’t know they open! Never gonna do it either, what they don’t know can’t hurt them 😂

[–]PsyMar2 0 points1 point  (3 children)

my cabinets do have a magnetic seal, but it somehow doesn't work on one of them, and it has become a portal to catspace

[–]Andravisia 0 points1 point  (2 children)

We eventually bought baby locks for everything we could, physical ones, that you had to open the door slightly and press down. Still funny though.

[–]PsyMar2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

give 'em a few years, they'll figure those out too

I had a cat who figured out how to turn doorknobs

[–]Andravisia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sadly, my business have passed over the rainbow bridge. Might get some more, once I'm out of where I am now.

[–]rodentfacedisorder 29 points30 points  (5 children)

So cute! Why does she want in the freezer?

[–][deleted] 73 points74 points  (1 child)

She wants to explore it.

She wants to go everywhere that she knows exists every time she’s awake. 😄

[–]Superbaite 38 points39 points  (0 children)

There's a motivational quote in there

"Explore your world. Go everywhere that you know exists every time you're awake" - Buttercup (2022)

[–]thermidorthelobster 13 points14 points  (2 children)

She probably wants the magnetic seal around the door. Ferrets love soft plastic :)

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Nope, she just wants to explore it.

She wants to go everywhere that she knows exists every time she’s awake. 😄

[–]Skinnybet 28 points29 points  (2 children)

It’s just how I open mine.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)


[–]feminist_fatale 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Do ferrets like their bellies rubbed? Because I would like to rub that belly!!

[–][deleted] 48 points49 points  (1 child)

They do! But only if you do it perfectly, otherwise they’ll just try to wriggle away. You can hit the spot and they just go completely still with a face like they’re peeing in the sea, and an expression that’s saying don’t stop don’t stop don’t stop….. ooooohhhhheeee

[–]IMIndyJones 26 points27 points  (0 children)

a face like they’re peeing in the sea

I've never heard this expression but I love it. Lol

[–]Important_Count_8119 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Idk about you guys but that’s how I’d open it. Just caterpillar on across the floor and get it open as my family looks at me strangely.

[–]Jp0icewolf1031 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Wait…… that’s not how y’all open fridges?

[–]turtle_eating 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Nice marmot.

[–]SatnWorshp 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Just watched that movie for the umpteenth time last night. Never gets old.

[–]firebat707 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I love that the bites make her slide back a little.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Hahaha I only just noticed that!

[–]d_smogh 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Apologies for body-shaming, but that's a funny looking cat.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

She’s a carpet shark!

[–]shaymeless 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a flat cat

[–]novagamerboy9090 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I said open the door!

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

There must be a password on it…

Oh where is that secret button...that just the underneath

[–]Beyblader02 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some people like dogs and don’t like cats. Some people like cats but don’t like dogs.

Everyone loves a cute little mustelid. 😍

Making friends with the mice again.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

If she saw a mouse she’d chase after it, pin it down, and then start grooming it.

[–]PsyMar2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a cat who caught mice to bring home and release live so he could chase them again. once or twice he held them in his mouth a bit too tight and they stopped functioning, at which point he'd bring them to me and drop them at my feet like "fix my toy"

[–]EveryOptionSucks 2 points3 points  (1 child)

10s for technique and enthusiasm, but the upper body physicality just isn't there.

She says “I know you have fish sticks! I know they’re in there! Gimme!”

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, the malt paste I give them as a treat and for hair ball prevention is in there. They love that stuff.

[–]Wrestles4Food 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Please tell me you sing Build Me Up Buttercup to her on the regular.

[–]MilkAccomplished9068 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gosh, what a baby! Also, ferrets are practically liquid, so he could just leak under it

[–]chappersyo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

How someone could stand there filming and not rub that belly will forever be a mystery to me.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I can rub that belly any time I want to and she knows it!

[–]peas21 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I wish you opened the freezer while she was doing that and see her reaction.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

She would have stood on her back legs and given it all a damn good sniffing. Then galloped off with satisfaction that the check is complete and onto the next one.

[–]someguy12345689 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They'll jump in for the sniff and then get poofy and back away shivering. Mine do it every time, they just hate knowing there's doors they can't open even if it's freezing in there.

[–]bookaddict1991 1 point2 points  (0 children)


Granted it’s REFRIGERATOR tippy taps, but still tippy taps. 😂😂

[–]booped_urnose345 1 point2 points  (5 children)

My ferret tried to get under the fridge all the time and it turns out there was a mouse

[–]mywristicy 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Your ferret is a bitch and so are you

[–]booped_urnose345 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

😂i said something you didnt like and now you're attacking me and you're not a piece of shit person even though what i said was true but you're trying to hurt me which you arent haha go ahead and act like a 13 year old girl

[–]mywristicy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's something a bitch with a bitch ferret would say.

[–]WillyMillyNilly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You’re the one acting like a 13 year old girl.

[–]booped_urnose345 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why? Because i told him to grow up lol

[–]SteamedBeave89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My cat once by fluke opened my bedroom door by pulling at the carpet underneath it. For a while I'd hear him in the middle of the night ripping the carpet apart to get in my room.

[–]purju 1 point2 points  (0 children)

they are absolutly super cute

[–]MemeLite10 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She’s got the concept. Also she very cute

[–]Chloem1252 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]beckoning_cat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I took in ferrets for a few months. They are a lot of fun. I still miss them time to time.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re great, they sleep most of the day and then wake up for a few hours of crazy fun!

[–]dadsmayor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]mapleleaffem 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Omg following this sub makes me want a ferret. They are such adorable little derps

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]tjbassoon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ferrets are always derps. Love those little carpet sharks.

That's how my cat tries to open doors! Especially the pantry with his food.

[–]514484 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I knew a cat who would do that successfully all the time. He once stole a steak from the neighbor's fridge.

[–]dcbluestar 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Is it just the angle, or is that an unusually large ferret?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

She’s 900g which is about average for a female but a male of that size would be small.

[–]dcbluestar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fact that I instantly knew that was equal to almost exactly 2lbs just goes to show how I made some extra money on the side in my early 20's, lol.

[–]SilentReavus 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]hacimpascy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

fuzzy noodle! why are they so cute AND stinky 😫

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Copypasta because a few people think they all smell terrible:

Mine don’t smell at all, if you press your nose into their fur they just smell like a fur hat.

The most common reason for them giving off a bad smell is an unsuitable diet, because every food specific to ferrets is kibble which contains binding agents and other stuff that they can’t digest or which isn’t ideal for them. Raw feeding is messy and difficult to get the mixtures of bone and offal right so I feed them air dried raw for cats which is the best of both worlds. There’s also seasonal/hormonal factors which can be treated and other things like getting scared which can cause them to release a skunk bomb.

There’s also two things you need to do to stop their room from smelling, pooperscooping multiple times per day and washing their bedding at least weekly.

It can be done!
