Doodle the Queen - ferrets body language Part 3 -

Part 1 :
Part 2 :

Doodle a few instants before a new confrontation. I think she already knows Petit Ours is around
 Petit Ours is here, she didn't stay on the couch ...
 Petit Ours has a big brushy tail. He still looks pacifist... Doodle is approaching
 Again Petit Ours turns his head ... and Doodle is still so dominating
And Doodle hisses, screams...
And the same pattern ... again ...

 A few instants later is Doodle who approaches Petit Ours ... Petit Ours doesn't move ...
 Time for me to let my camera... I didn't get any chance and grabbed Petit Ours in my hands...

Doodle going out of her hiding place ...

Really not easy ...
This morning I filled my hand with ferotone and let each one to lick, they did lick, but each one returned on their position. 


Ferret Body Language Part 2

Part 1 is here :

Definitively Petit Ours shows he is subjected (right word ?)
Doodle never turns her head, but will look at Petit Ours right in his eyes ...
 Petit Ours turns his head...and don't want any confrontation...
 Petit Ours head is turned, he has stopped eyes contact, but Doodle doesnt't !
 My poor white little heart, now he turns his body ... Doodle is still on her position...
 And voila ... Petit Ours goes away and Doodle chases him.
 This picture was one after the others, Doodle is going under the couch, not sure why...Petit Ours is away, but Doodle seems to have adopted this place.
Look at her brushy tail...



Doodle wants to be the Ferret Queen

Day 14 for Doodle, Petit Ours and me in our new life of together.
 Part 1
No ... Doodle and Petit Ours are not yet friends...
It is obvious that Princess Doodle want to be the Queen of the Castle.
Body language doesn't lie !
I will make my article in 3 parts because I have 23 pictures I really want to share with you.
Please don't be afraid or mad at me...
There were no harm, no blood, no poops flying everywhere, just body language... OK !
I was right here ready to jump on the middle of Petit Ours and Doodle.
For one week I have been very protective keeping both of them in my arms.
And finally I have a doubt ... perhaps they need to really show to each other their position.
So I gave it a try yesterday and again today... 

And  Doodle The Queen
Petit Ours sees Doodle and calmly wants to approach her. Look at the Doodle face, she seems outraged.

Petit Ours continues the approach, Doodle hisses, screams and opens her mouth...and
Here Petit Ours dodges the open mouth of Doodle, immediately Doodle goes away

Petit Ours is unsure about what to do. He doesn't move....

Petit Ours stays puzzled and Doodle is watching him ...
Quietly Petit Ours try again to approach Doodle... Time for me to let my camera on the floor and be right there.
Doodle has a brush tail ...

When A Ferret goes to his Veterinary in Canada Winter ....

It is me Petit Ours !

Mommy took those photos two weeks ago .. but she didn't have yet the time to upload them.
As many of you already knows I am suffering from allergies because perhaps something wrong with my immune system.(what the doctor said)
Two weeks ago I have started a new alternative medicine treatment, and today was my recheck and there is a little improvement ... YEAH !!!!!So I continue the new medicine and Mom will increase the dosage since I am  tolerating the herbal treatment very well, and Mom will decrease the prednisone. YEAH !!!
Ok the pictures now from two weeks ago. I am in Canada, and it is soooo cold !
Ferrets have a very fast intestinal tract, so a litter pan is useful, if I want to pee or poop I can retain myself a little time ( a few minutes)  but not so long.  
Well that is my big carrier. Mommy opened it in two parts.

 She did 2 holes in the back of the carrier to attach the litter pan, Mommy don't want anymore to let me have a lot of fun to make all upside-down ...
 News paper pellet litter is the best, no dust for my fragile lungs ...
 Mommy Rebuilt my carrier and add an hammock ... that is so fun !
 Adding a sleep sack and Wrapping the carrier in a blanket ...
 And attach all the kit with an old scarf, very practice !
 And now it is time to begin  the inspection  ... Ok ... she didn't forget the scarf ! Good !!! Good !!!

What did she put inside ?
 Sounds good !

Good I have my hammock !!! the trip will be nice :D

 Sleep sack too !
Ok Mommy it is  Ferret approved !!!
 Yep there is snow ... view from my kitchen window ...

Attaching The carrier on the back seat, since on the front seat, the weight is too much light and the security airbag doesn't detect it. Mommy  has tried everything,  with no success ... So she attaches  me on the back, at least the 2 front seats will make a protection and there are airbags on the back seat.

Putting my nose through the  door carrier.

If only my head was able to go through this square !

Now both Mommy and me are ready to the long trip to visit my vet ... 45 minutes on the road if there is no traffic !
