The surest way to tell when a ferret (or three) is causing trouble is when you listen and hear...Nothing.
Silent ferret activity is the most frightening. Our ferrets often work in cahoots with Donnatella making the noise of three ferrets while Max and Umberto silently get into the worst of mischeif. With Donnatella making all that racket, we often won't realize that Max and Umberto have disconnected the stove until we wake up from our carbon monoxide haze to find the firefighters breaking down our door.
One Friday night, however, Donnatella got drunk on her watch and we discovered the three of them partying their stinky butts off.
