This ferret’s attempt, and disastrous failure, to make it from a table to the window in one leap ranks very high on my list of hilarious videos I’ve seen in a while. I mean, you just see the thing pacing about for quite some time, pumping itself up for the heroic jump… And it was not even close!
Thankfully, the ferret’s attempt was caught on camera and shared with us by YouTube user Marek Riha, who gives us some details:
She tried to get to the window.when I saw that she wants to jump from the table I moved closer the ironing board.I didn’t realize that it’s slippery. That’s it. I’m not a despot. This glow stick she put on herself. Weight of glow Sticks is about cca 6 grams. She could breath easily. So no worries. I just have to apologize for my gay sadistic laughter :).
Of course, some commenters have criticized the man and this one is fairly representative:
I read your reply but you probably shouldn’t have let her jump off there. You shouldn’t even let her go on the table without being ready to catch her in case she tries to jump off.
Well, here is the video — judge for yourself:
1. Here is the ferret getting ready for the jump.
2. Still thinking about it.
3. Almost ready.
4. And finally, the big jump.
