    Well, was a tad hung over and a bit bored. Been trying to tame down the Spencer's before he gets too large etc.

    Walking threw the pet shop getting some crickets for the frogs I see a ferret lead for 10 bucks. Brilliant idea springs to mind.

    This is the result.

    Now to get him better at walking!
    Neighbourhood cats are about to get a touch up.

    Oh, he's never tried to bite since I've had him, just a lot of huffing an puffing and tail whips. But deciding toget him out of that habit and before he does realise he can bite, he's 4 years old ATM.

  7. Looks interesting. Nice bit of environmental enrichment. I tried something similar with my Lacie female but just ended up standing at the bottom of a tree with a lead over my head while passers by gave me confused looks:)!

    Just dont leave them tethered using just the ferret harness. They can get out of them very easily. Someone knows what I'm talking about.

    I tried that with my sandy. We were walking around the back yard and all was going well until a magpie swooped him... Now I just need to show him the lead and he does the bolt and hides under the couch!
