So you think animals are just mindless beasts?

Mama Ferret shows off her babies.
This is just one example of how animals communicate and deminstrates the trust this mama has of her human friend. I have had ferrets and I know first hand how smart these guys are. It has been said that ferrets are a cross between a cat and a dog in their behavior. Ferrets are awesome animals and great pets for the right people. Yeah they smell but so do you so there. They will find places in your home you never knew had places. They are SUPER mousers! They will play and run around at 90 miles an hour for thirty minutes and then sleep for two hours. Sleeping is their favorite pass time after that it is bonker time. They can be litter box trained, they dont like poop anymore than you do. If you enjoy interacting with animals, two way, you cant get much better than a ferret. Great for homes where cats and dogs are not workable. Like any critter two or four legged no two are exactly alike.
Too awesome not to share.

I live alone in the middle of nowhere with two dogs and a cat, what do you think about that.

The wind blows, the rain falls, the flag snaps its bravery in the dark as two dogs boil for attention at my feet.

Of course it is a true story. You just couldn't make up something like that, no way.

Animals are cool (most of them, anyway).

Yep. Unfortunately somebody got it wrong when they say humans sometimes act like or are animals.

Our Mastiff isn't retarded but he sure is obstinate!

The daughter and 4 y/o granddaughter were staying with us a while back and the little one got pretty sick. Our Golden Retriever slept close to her and woke the daughter up every time the little one's fever spiked. I have no idea if this sort of behavior is instinctual or cognisant but they certainly can tell when things are wrong.

You guy's haven't lived until you've built an FAL with the "help" of three cats.
