BREATHE EASY, AMERICA

A ferret is recovering after being fitted with a pacemaker during a rare surgery at Kansas State University.

Should the squirrels develop this technology for their own use, the scenario is terrifying.

The university says Zelda was released two days after the surgery and should enjoy a normal ferret lifespan, which the school's veterinary college says generally is about 10 years.

Unless, of course, the student vet left a Junior Mint inside...

Aorta take better care of him now.

Feel good story for this ferret caretaker ;-)

Frankenferret

My (past) co-worker had a pet ferret. He let him run free in the apartment.

One day he couldn't find the ferret anywhere.

He started moving furniture around, afraid he'd find a dead ferret.

Instead, he heard a loud crunch and found the ferret. When he checked and lifted the sofa, there was the ferret, crushed against a wall and blood everywhere.

(I still think the squirrels had a role in this.)
