WASHINGTON (Zenger News) — While the white-tailed deer is the official state animal of Michigan, the antics of a trio of pet ferrets in the state have been getting a lot of attention lately.
The ferrets’ owner entertains them with games such as chasing a drone hovering just above their heads and running through a coiled tube.
Ferrets, domesticated polecats, are members of the weasel family.
Ferret owner Calvin, known as Ferret Daddy on Instagram, accompanied the footage with the message: “Something to keep them busy!”
Calvin, who works for a financial institution in Michigan, said his three ferrets are between 2 and 3 years old. Their names are Hex, Nala and Nagini.
“When I’m home, they are allowed out of their cage to be with me,” Calvin said.
“When I am out or working, they have a large cage, so I can make sure they are safe,” he said.
In the first video, Calvin teases the three ferrets with a small drone flying in the living room.
The second video shows the pet owner placing a small microphone next to his sleeping ferrets to capture the cute snoring sounds they make.
In the third, Calvin is seen dragging a long tube along the floor as his pets give chase.
