Do ferrets kiss their owners?

Chloe - size comparison

Yes, at least Chloe does. How does a ferret kiss its owner? The same way a dog will kiss you, by licking you on the lips.

Interesting how all pet animals aim for the lips. With a dog, it can be a little sloppy and annoying, though well appreciated (I have been an owner of several wonderful dogs). With ferrets, the kisses take the form of little petite licks from tiny scratchy tongues that seem to be just as raspy as a cat's tongue.

When we first got Chloe, she was a little reserved as compared to now. That's probably understandable since she didn't come out of a good environment (Chloe was a "rescue ferret"). However, now, the first thing Chloe does when we take her out of her cage for "run around the house and destroy everything time" is kiss me or my wife. And I mean that is absolutely the very first thing she does. It's true affection.

Oh, the shot above is several years old and may even date back to when Chloe first graced our home (i.e. was thrust upon two naive and unsuspecting ferret owners to be). As you can see, there is a blank VHS video tape in the won't be long before they attain the same novelty as eight tracks, I suppose.
