“I’d like to stay awake, but I can’t.”
Ah, the life of a ferret. It can be difficult. Take for instance when you really want to catch some shuteye but your human just won’t stop petting you. What can you do? In this video, the ferret yawns and yawns and dozes off anyway. Pepe is definitely a sleepy ferret! Does he care that his leg is being moved around or he’s getting head and neck scratches? Nooooope. It’s strictly Zzzz time.
It’s not unusual for ferrets to sleep deeply. In fact, sometimes they sleep so deeply that it’s difficult to wake them and owners fear that they have died. Luckily, Pepe is quite obviously alive, just sleepy!
