Catch me if you can Gussie!
A few days ago while Mom was at work, Dad went out to do his outside chores. Now that he is a hobby farmer he has fun chores he does everyday now. BUTT before he went outside he let Eddie out to run all overs our house with SUPERVISION.
Its something that Eddie gets to do every morning and every evening. In between he sleeps the rest of the time, damn lazy ferret.
Soooo Dad lets Ed out, and forgets to put him back in his tower before he goes outside ...........he also forgot to move the dog crate from the wall in the kitchen. That is another rule with Eddie YOU MUST always move the dog crate away from the wall cos he climbs it and runs all over the counters. He is one smart ferret for sure.
So here is Ed running wild wif no supervision, and the crate still against the wall. Yep, Ed climbs the crate, and is on the counter.
NOW the day before Mom re-potted her favorite and ONLY spider plant hoping this miracle grow soil would make the plant happier and live longer. Mom is known in these parts as the serial spider plant killer,but manages after each tragic death, to get another one, from her friend who is the spider plant whisperer. So the plant is one the counter, and the soil is still wet.
Yep it was a "ferret gone wild" moment for sure. Eddie dug in the wet soil, he jumped and played in the wet soil, he uprooted the spider plant and threw it to the floor, and continued to roll in the wet soil.
Then just for the hell of it, he ran all over the counters, the kitchen and anyplace that he could leave muddy little paw prints. WE pugs sit and watched in wonder, and once we realized what was going on, laughed our little asses off cos we KNEW Dad was coming up the steps any moment.
"He did WHAT???"
WELL, Ed went and hid behind the chair so Dad wouldn't see his mud soaked little body, but we had already made a sign for DAD that said, "LOOK WHAT ED DID!!!!" Just to help Dad out cos we did not want him to think one of us had made the mess. We also put an ad on Craigslist for a free ferret, saying we will deliver. Just to help Dad out.
Needless to say, Ed got tossed back in his cage, Dad called mom at work and told her the whole muddy story, and Dad proceeded to clean it up the best to his ability, which really means when mom got home it took her another hour, to clean footprints off the wall, and counters, and doors, plus she had to re-pot that plant.
Ed was put on disciplinary action through the prison council and had to spend the rest of the day in his cage. Only under guard watch was he allowed back out later that night. Dad and mom made us take the craigslist ad off the site. Sigh.................................Stella Rose
