Aren't you scared to sleep with both a dread pitbull and the notoriously vicious ( even more so than the most blood crazed pitbull ) ferret ? I find it amazing that you were not only able to survive the mauling that must have occured mere seconds after you snapped this photo but also managed to post between hospital visits ! cute puppy.

I know, it's pretty terrifying, two pit bulls in bed with me at night and four ferrets in the room over. If I stop posting suddenly, you all will know I've been eaten alive. I also have the mice, iguana and raw meat, which are spreading horrible salmonella all over and a venomous saltwater fish. My house is massively unsafe apparently.

It really is funny When you think about a, what? 60lb pittie being terrified of a 2lb ferret ? Reminds me of my cat, Watson. He normally love ferrets, but with Suki- it's an entirely different story. I actually found him cowering against one of the stair risers, trembling, while she was all over him Never bit him, but just...all over him- non stop! Yes, I rescued my 10lb cat from my 1lb ferret

My cats are terrified of the ferrets, but they have good reason... mine DO bite cats, and hard. More than once I've picked up a cat with both ferrets hanging off him by their teeth. After I shake the ferrets off and set the cat free, the ferts look confused and disappointed... like "where did our new friend go? Why do our new friends always leave us?"

Yes, Nero is a wuss. He's better than he was and will sometimes stay near one for a bit but usually he just turns and walks away looking scared. But show him a squirrel, oh man! He'll climb a tree after one and almost loses his mind.
My cat doesn't mess with the ferrets either, she used to jump in their room and steal kibble and now even with raw in there she won't go in, but she'll sit on the other side and stare at it, lol. They used to try and take her down as a pack, couple nipping at her legs and others jumping on her back. God only knows what they thought they would do once she was down.
