I’ve had my ferrets for 4 years now.
Shortly after bringing them home, I noticed that my socks were disappearing at an alarming rate. At the time i didn’t put 2&2 together. The ferrets stay in my room and I usually keep the cage open whenever I’m in the room.
A few weeks after having the ferrets home, I decided to rearrange my room to make it better for the ferrets to run around so i could keep an eye on them better.
I thought i knew Bucky’s (the male ferret) hiding place. When things would go missing from my room I’d just look behind my desk and there it would be, so I never thought it was him stealing my socks.
When I started moving the things around in my room, I moved the dresser…..and there they were, about 60 socks that went missing!!
At this point i turned to look at the cage and there’s Bucky, staring at me like, “Hey, what are you doing with my socks!”
I couldn’t help but laugh.
I figured out how he was getting them! I had my socks in the bottom drawer of the dresser. He would crawl into the drawer from behind and steal all my socks.
Now I keep my socks in the top drawer where he can’t get to them 🙂
