Ferrets and bags

Chloe steals an apple

Tip: don't leave zippered bags (such as carry-on luggage, cosmetics containers, laptop bags, and purses) laying around the house if you have a ferret, particularly if you have things in those bags that you'd like to keep possession of.

For some ferrets (I'm referencing Chloe here and, to be realistic, all ferrets), bags hold all the lure of buried treasure. And zippers on bags simply dare them to try and steal the treasure. Remember, ferrets are a bit like bank robbers. You don't want to tempt them and you certainly don't want to dare them. So, keep the bags out of sight, or at least out of reach. Remember, the name for this animal, Mustela putorius furo, actually means “stinky thief.”

Also be careful of leaving openings in your home to anything that might be hazardous to your ferret, including bags, doors, and containers that they might not be able to get out of (such as, speaking from experience, an umbrella stand).

They say curiosity killed the cat...but I believe the saying fits ferrets all the more.
