Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

Fact: In the UK there is one ferret for every 50 humans, but only one aikidoka for every 50,000 humans.
The first bit is a genuine fact anyway.

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

What happened to his tail? Is it under the hakama?

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

Kewl! Love ferrets myself, used to have two of them:

Rikki Tikki Tavi (AKA Rikki, Little Mouser, Calvin)

and

Miyamoto Mushashi (AKA Sashi, Big Bear, Hobbs, Stinky [he still had one testicle that descended late])

Ferrets have got to be some of the most playfull animals you can have as pets. It is virtually impossible to be depressed around them, they can take your mind off of almost anything (including a really hard, unproductive aikido keiko). And they don't usually bite as much as people say. Not hard anyway...Sashi only drew blood once. Some of them do like soft chewy parts though, so be carefull! Earlobes were a favorite of Rikki until he outgrew the nursing thingy. Expectant mothers and nursing mothers beware!

You should post pictures of the real ferrets you have! Oh, saw a documentary on wolverines this past weekend. WOW. Major Ferret With Attitude! And still somehow, kinda cute!

Best,
Ron

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

I can't help but note that the people in the comic seem totally unfazed at the sight of a walking, talking ferret.

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

Isn't it the mongoose that is fearless when it comes to snakes?

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

Mongooses yes; but ferrets are totally fearless and will attack anything if they feel the need. As apex predators they really don't have much to fear either - those fuzzy little nuclear-powered carpet sharks move like lightning and can easily take down things dozens of times their size and mass. Snakes are a favourite meal for them.

Hee hee - I love ferrets.

Answers are only easy when they're incomplete.

If you think ferrets are bad ass, you should see a wolverine....

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

yeah I used to have ferrets as well - fantastic pets, heaps of fun. Unfotunately due to some particularly uninformed hysteria in this part of the world it's now illegal to sell them as pets (although they can still be bred for export which is kind of bizarre) so my daughter will never get the fun of playing with the fuzzits.
There you see, now you've got me pining for the boys - Loki, Odin, Frodo, Pippin and Mojo.

Re: Itachi, The Aikido Ferret

That's not a ferrett at all!! It is just a person wearing a ferret's face!!
