Are refrigerators dangerous to ferrets?

Small...but very tricky

They can be. I've read before how a ferret can get into a refrigerator's fan blades and get hurt and possibly killed. But I didn't really understand how easy this is until I had to pull my fridge back from the wall, unplug the power cord, and retrieve a piece of plastic that gotten stuck in the fan. It was then that I realized how big the blades are, how fast they turn, and how much damage this could cause the average overly-curious ferret.

BTW, the picture above illustrates just how small Chloe is compared to the average ferret. I have visited pet stores (I don't advocate buying a ferret from a pet store ever: 1.they don't keep them properly--ferrets need a quiet, dark, and enclosed sleep environment and plenty of out-of-cage time--and 2. there are too many ferrets in shelters that need to be adopted) and seen young kits that are much larger than Chloe and she is definitely as big as she will ever get (thank goodness).

My two ferrets Solari and Luna are probably the same size as chloe they are 15 weeks old and real sweeties getting them to go to bed at night real fun (not) but like chloe they eat when they are getting sleepy and they crash a few mins later.

I guess they all do it. I never really had a problem with Chloe going to bed. But I can imagine its different with really young kits. Like human children, they may have trouble settling down for "bedtime". Nice names, by the way. And very original. Sometimes, I think Chloe should have been named "Destructo".

She looks too cute to be called Destructo mind you Solari could probably give her a run for her money
Luna is too much of a lady
