Carrying things in your house when you have a ferret

This may sound paranoid, but a ferret can make you that way. And, to be honest, if you're not a little paranoid, you're probably not cut out for ferret ownership.

Be careful of carrying objects of any respectable size in the house when your ferret is out. Reason: You may never know when your ferret is under your feet and about to be crushed should you drop that heavy bag of groceries. By the same token, be careful when you open the refrigerator door when your ferret is out. If yours is like mine (Chloe), she'll like to poke her head in as soon as the door opens. Ask yourself how many times you've ever dropped a two-litre container of soda. This could seriously injure a ferret (imagine a utility shed being dropped on your head). Also, on the matter refrigerators, never close the door too fast. Why? Because your ferret could still have his/her head in the door and you wouldn't want to injure its head or neck.

By the way, this goes for every door in your house. One of the number one rules in my house is Never slam doors. And a followup rule to that is Always look at the bottom of the door as you close it if the ferret is out. I can't tell you how many times Chloe has tried to stick her head into the space between the doorframe and the door as it's closing.
