Ferret in the dishwasher

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?

by Needed to ventreply 111/08/2013

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?

by Needed to ventreply 611/08/2013

Eastern Standard Time, Rose!

by Needed to ventreply 711/08/2013

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.

by Needed to ventreply 811/08/2013

Please put in place better security precautions in the future, OP.

by Needed to ventreply 911/08/2013

So, the bf has two ferrets and a weasel.

by Needed to ventreply 1011/08/2013


by Needed to ventreply 1111/08/2013

No, it's not burned (thankfully)

by Needed to ventreply 1211/08/2013

Time to find a new boyfriend.

by Needed to ventreply 1311/08/2013

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.

by Needed to ventreply 1411/08/2013

Tell them they can live with me.

by Needed to ventreply 1511/08/2013

Thanks for telling me he wasn't burned, op.

I was thinking boiled ferret.

by Needed to ventreply 1611/08/2013

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.

by Needed to ventreply 1711/08/2013

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.

by Needed to ventreply 1811/08/2013

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!!"

by Needed to ventreply 2011/08/2013

Thank God you had the dishwasher on Ferret-cycle.

by Needed to ventreply 2111/08/2013

If it were a ferret worthy of that name, it would have figured a way out of that dishwasher through persistence.

by Needed to ventreply 2211/08/2013

Dishwasher safe ferrets? OMG, I must have one!

by Needed to ventreply 2311/08/2013

you are both more disgusting than misshelenbedd

by Needed to ventreply 2411/08/2013

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. 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".

by Needed to ventreply 2511/08/2013

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!

by Needed to ventreply 2611/08/2013

"Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a ferret faucet major!"

by Needed to ventreply 2711/08/2013

Ferrets are notorious for hiding in strange places and getting into trouble like that. It's the animal's fault.

by Needed to ventreply 2811/08/2013

Ferrets are better suited to use as a bottle brush when washing dishes by hand.

by Needed to ventreply 2911/08/2013

Wolves and otters. Theys my favorites.

by Needed to ventreply 3011/08/2013

"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.

I have no doubt that is true. They are stinky critters.

by Needed to ventreply 3211/09/2013

"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.

[quote] and let's them run around the house.

Let's? LET'S??

[quote] when we loading dishes

Right before you boiling ferrets.

[quote] and turned the dishwasher

Why did you turn it?

[quote] The ferret seems to fine

But you don't seem to fine.

[quote] Unless your living in a padded room

Your? YOUR??

by Needed to ventreply 3411/09/2013

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.

[quote] My bf has 2 ferrets

I think I've found the source of your problem.

by Needed to ventreply 3611/09/2013

2 ferrets and no balls probably.

by Needed to ventreply 3711/09/2013

And now you'll never get the musky smell off those dishes.

by Needed to ventreply 3811/09/2013

When you wash the dishes you have to moooovethe ferret!

by Needed to ventreply 3911/09/2013

Just keep them out of the microwave.

by Needed to ventreply 4011/09/2013

We are thankful to learn the ferret emerged streak-free.

by Needed to ventreply 4111/09/2013

OP, your pet situation could be worse:

by Needed to ventreply 4211/09/2013

Don't think I've forgotten. You owe me, OP

by Needed to ventreply 4311/09/2013

Do you guys have large tubes you stick up each other's butts every night and let the ferrets go to town?

by Needed to ventreply 4411/09/2013

I thought Ferret in the Dishwater was a John Water's movie.

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....

by Needed to ventreply 5511/09/2013

Haha R52!

by Needed to ventreply 5611/10/2013

Do they just run around all the time? Do they have a litter box or something?

by Needed to ventreply 5711/10/2013

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.

by Needed to ventreply 5811/10/2013

r57, ferrets can be litter trained, but you can often predict an animal's elimination habits and uncage them accordingly.

by Needed to ventreply 5911/10/2013

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".

by Needed to ventreply 6011/10/2013

OP, is your BF The Beastmaster?

by Needed to ventreply 6111/10/2013

r61 wins. Thread closed.

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!"

by Needed to ventreply 6711/14/2013

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.
