Ernie's attitude is best described as "touch and go", not only the common meaning that he changes from time to time but also a literal meaning applies as I often try to pet him in his cage and I must "go" if I don't want to get nipped.
I have been working with one winter glove on as it helps to get him out of the cage, then he usually calms down a bit. It's hard to tell whether or not he's gonna bite sometimes as it is natural for prairie dogs to greet one another with their mouths. Well, the efforts continue and the goal is to have a friendly companion who will not be nervous around me.

Linds: Woops, sorry about that. My ferrets are absolutely fabulous as far as temperment is concerned. They are just like puppies, but also like puppies that they are a little overzealous with the "play nipping" but it doesn't hurt and most ferrets do this because of their natural rough play with one another. However, if they are playing and they accidentally nip me too hard, I just give a firm "No!" and they quickly learn that rough play is not acceptable with the "big ferret"..heheh.

I want a ferret but no-where around here are they sold. Great pics i live like right down the street from one of the biggest prarie dog colonies in texas their everywhere. WHats even sadder is that a highway runs right through their colony so theres dead one all over the road every day.

Awww, I love ferrets, yours are so cute! I used to have a Sable Ferret, she was fairly feisty, but, most of the time she only nipped me and never drew blood. She was awesome, but STINKY! I didn't have the money to get her descented. The cutest thing that I ever saw was Bandit (my ferret) curled up against the corner of her cage, and my roommate's cat Hobbes snuggled up right beside her as close as he could get. *L*
