The Lord - Ferret Photo session - Backstage

I thought about a new photo with Nahum.

First I needed to change the backdrop.
On the floor there is Nahum sleeping there. Always pay attention to the little ferrets when they are with you !

Need to pick up Nahum, and bring him in a safe place, where he will be able to sleep again :D

Remove this grey backdrop, it is heavy, and it will be too much heavy for the stand.

I take care about my material, now it is time to fold him, it is a 10x20 size and always took me time

Ok now I need to install the backdrop I want to use

Now I am quite happy, take me a lot of time to adjust the height for to make the backdrop floor match my own floor...

Go in the garden the day before, in the ice and snow, kick with my boots this flowers pots to remove it from ice...
Washed it and now ready to use

Nahum always sleepy in the blanket :D Carefully take it. I don't want to excite him

Kisses time, I use a remote, my camera is on a tripod and settled to take pictures with the remote (very useful)

Now I must to make things fast and quick, and not to be far to Nahum, if he want to go out, he we simply jump and can injury himself. So I need to carefully watch him and understand what he want to do.

He is a lot wondering, what crasy thing his mom has invented again :no:
Kisses again, I am here Nahum, I am here :love:

I will not post all the pictures I took...

Here you see Nahum wants to go out, so it is rush time to catch him

I hope you enjoyed it

Update about Nahum and Lil Bear
Nahum cancer seems to comes back :no: he loses a lot of hair on his tail :(
 I called the vet who gave him the Deslorelin Implant, they gave me an appointment for Friday morning, I was so really happy ...  but they called me back again, the vet said that I need to see Nahum's regular vet. I explained I did, and I want him to see if all is ok with the implant, but they don't accepted to give me an appointment.
I am really lost there and not happy

Lil Bear is fine, his eye is less swollen and it is more yellow than red around his eye, but something very very strange, his tail his all yellow now ... beautiful fur but yellow

lil Bear will have an appointment with his regular vet, I will bring Nahum with me, but I know it will be for nothing as it not her she did the implant.

Sometimes ...


  1. Fantastic,

    I loved watching you set this all up. Very interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes. Never new Nahum is such a kisser.. You are so Lucky.. Only Jaffa kisses me like that..

    Now I can say I finally saw you.. hehe


  2. Hehehe :)

    Yes Nahum is a machine kisses !

    Glad you enjoyed to see this :D

  3. This is neat! Where do you get the backdrops? I thought that you must live in a mansion or something!
    About Lil Bear: My Jean Luc turned yellow over the past year, but his colour changed all over his body. Now he has yellow undercoat and a beautiful brown topcoat. So maybe Bear is just changing colours (which is pretty normal!)
    I hope both your babies get better!

  4. I love these photos, Marie-Agnes! Petit Ours may be getting more yellow because his body is getting more oily. It is more visible on white ferrets than on dark ones. It is usually nothing to worry about. When did you last bathe him?

  5. Caitlyn, I whish to live in a mansion or something beautiful like this... :o) Will stay as a dream. And those backdrops permit me to dream ! The grey, I was removing came from USA and the others came from China.
    Thank you so much for your good thoughts for my babies.

    Natalie, the last bath is from last summer, it is almost orange under the hair on his tail.
    I am not too much worried. But I am very concerned about his eye. Very strange. The new treatment didn't cure him. Thank you for your nice words :)
