Bath Time For Clooney

The little weasel weaseled his way into somewhere stinky and this morning I decided the smelly little critter needed a bath.  I don't bathe him often - in fact I think its been close to a year since his last bath.  Ferrets have a natural oil to their skin and bathing them strips them and makes the skin dry and flaky.

Anyway - into the tub we got and we pulled up the bathmat that we drape over the side so he can enter and exit whenever he wants.  Just a couple of inches of water and a cup and we got all wet.  Then a little shot of Emma's puppy shampoo and a rinse.  Then we did the dry off.  This makes the little guy so fluffy and to top it off he gets so overly excited that he runs around like a maniac.  I think he will sleep good today after so much excitement this morning.  Hopefully I can find where it was that he picked up the stink....
