Phoebe and Kai

Kai - our youngest male ferret is obsessed with making friends with Phoebe - our youngest kitty. Phoebe is a notorious ferret head bonker and isn't all that interested in making friends.  Phoebe usually sleeps upstairs with us which gives Kai the opportunity to win her over.  Usually the wild child who is leaping and biting and causing chaos - when he sees Phoebe he turns into a mellow little gentle soul.  He lays very still and moves very slowly to get closer to her.  Sometimes it works and she tolerates him laying close to her.  When that happens - the whole time Kai makes the happy ferret noise (dooking).  On the days where Phoebe isn't having any part of him she whacks him on he head and then he turns back into wild child and he jumps on her.  They are quite fun to watch....
