My bf has 2 ferrets and after work he takes them out of cage and let's them run around the house.
They love to play in the dishwasher (when we loading dishes). Well, tonight I put the detergent in and turned the dishwasher. Around 5 minutes later, I didn't see the second ferret. I open the dishwasher door and the little thing is clinging to the cutlery holder, soaking wet. Thankfully, it didn't get cut and it was only for a short time.
The ferret seems to fine (although freaked out) and my bf rinsed her off, dried her and now she's in her cage grooming herself
Anyway, my bf is super-pissed at me and I feel bad enough without his adding to it.
Was the ferret on Meth?
Suh-winnnnnggggg!.....and a miss.
EST attempt: 1/10
You know r2, not every semi-weird story is an EST
Unless your living in a padded room, sometimes shit happens
I had some friends--very nice, very intelligent--who had several ferrets.
They kept them indoors, of course. Their house smelled like shit. Musty, vintage shit.
Who lets weasels roam free around the house? Isn't that why we have exterminators?
What does EST stand for?
Eastern Standard Time, Rose!
I would think water would be very hot in the dish washer, are you sure the ferret wasn't burned?
Damn, I'm not surprises your bf is mad at you. It would take me awhile to calm down and get over it.
Please put in place better security precautions in the future, OP.
So, the bf has two ferrets and a weasel.
THIS DISHWASHER IS A FERRET-FREE ZONE.
No, it's not burned (thankfully)
Time to find a new boyfriend.
I have a theory: Either it was a set up by the other ferret to get rid of the competition, or it was an attempted ferret-cide.
Tell them they can live with me.
Thanks for telling me he wasn't burned, op.
I was thinking boiled ferret.
If you get the ferrets from a good breeder, they can be good pets but not every ferret is pet worthy.
By the way, any pet can make your house stink, if you aren't taking good care of it.
had a hookup with a guy from grindr a few months ago. seemed cute and normal and when I got to his place, he had 3 large ferrets walking around his apartment, climbing on furniture, just hanging out and roaming around. I was DISGUSTED! I told him I forgot to feed the meter and bailed. Not EVERYTHING is a pet.
Do you ever think that maybe the ferret thinks you smell? Maybe he was in the dishwasher in order to wash your stink off him?
Ferrets gets the spots out of glassware.
if you bf is pissed I would say this to him "here is an idea, if you don't want me to wash the fucking ferret in the dishwasher, don't let them play in the fucking dishwasher!!"
Thank God you had the dishwasher on Ferret-cycle.
If it were a ferret worthy of that name, it would have figured a way out of that dishwasher through persistence.
Dishwasher safe ferrets? OMG, I must have one!
you are both more disgusting than misshelenbedd
Ferrets are working animals. They hunt and flush out game. NOT a good house pet, IMO. Canines of a similar bent are usually relegated to the out-of-doors. And they leave musk everywhere. EVERYWHERE! I get the dishwasher story though-I had friends who almost "pots and pans" cycled one of their cats. Ruth Buzzi, bless her, told a similar story about a new kitten on some late-night talk show back in the 70s. They're also not above attempting to make a meal out of their owner's fingers and toes. Errmm..no thank you. Mammals like warm places-I live in a lesbionic part of Northern California, I am used to the ritual of thumping my pickup's hood to rouse any felines that have may have curled up in the engine's fan shroud (shudders).
They're also illegal to keep as pets in many US states, California amongst them. As an aside, OP, are you certain you didn't passive/aggressive shut the door on purpose?
Don't hate me, but it sounds like you've just about had it with BF and the "kids".
You wanna know why I'm mad at you? Here! Look! This is the only ferret in the world with dishpan hands! And that's because of you!
"Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a ferret faucet major!"
Ferrets are notorious for hiding in strange places and getting into trouble like that. It's the animal's fault.
Ferrets are better suited to use as a bottle brush when washing dishes by hand.
Wolves and otters. Theys my favorites.
"Ferrets are notorious for hiding in strange places and getting into trouble like that."
My ferret mistook my hole for a can opener and it landed me in the hospital.
[quote]Needed to vent
I have no doubt that is true. They are stinky critters.
"Thankfully, it didn't get cut and it was only for a short time."
It would have been a different outcome if you were using Finish.

Why did you turn it?

But you don't seem to fine.

No, seriously... what does EST mean?
My friend's mother accidentally tumble-dried her cat. She heard it thumping around in the dryer and rescued it. The cat was just a little dizzy afterwards.
Do you guys have large tubes you stick up each other's butts every night and let the ferrets go to town?
r44 Gerbils, friend, gerbils.
I thought Ferret in the Dishwater was a John Water's movie.
There's a rat in me kitchen what am I gonna do?

I usually just thump my pickup's bum.
huron en le lavavajillas. Sounds better in Spanish
Next time try the microwave.
r25 where do you live in lesbionic N CA? I live there too, and even though ferrets are illegal here my vet deals with them.

Oh dear yourself, R34.
Do keep up, R52. It was intentional.
HUGE eye roll......
Thought I'd update you all and let you know she's alive and well. I was sweating it all night....
Do they just run around all the time? Do they have a litter box or something?
I feel privileged to have been witness to both the Possum in the Drawer Thread AND the Ferret in the Dishwasher thread.
I have been truly blessed.
r57, ferrets can be litter trained, but you can often predict an animal's elimination habits and uncage them accordingly.
Jeepers: 50 posts in and no one has asked the obvious question.
Apart from occasionally running up inside your boyfriend's trouser legs OP, what role, if any, do the ferrets play in your collective love life?
So for Group, pease clarify on a scale of 1 to 10: 1 being "In winter it's just nice to feel them warming one's crutch" to 10 being: "A pre-lubed ferret is an ocean of love".
OP, is your BF The Beastmaster?
r61 wins. Thread closed.
Cascade Complete! Now with live ferret!
The poor little baby probably has pneumonia! All because of the carelessness of a jealous boyfriend.
"Thankfully, it didn't get cut and it was only for a short time."
mutilation is never funny, even for a short time
imagine the shame of living with that ugly scar forever
He's a grown man. With ferrets. Oh honey, you got a keeper there.
Andy Cohen was accidentally locked into jessica Seinfeld's dishwasher. He wasn't mad. All he said was "Thank God there 'aint no ferrets in here!"
Same thing happened to me when I was married, before I came out. It wasn't a ferret, however. It was our young son - Timmy. And it wasn't the dishwasher, but the wood chipper in the back yard.
Didn't turn out as well.
