A tiny corner of Ianto’s mind that still thought like a human registered that being a ferret was fun! The Hub was full of interesting smells to sniff at, especially the odd sock he found under a desk, which smelled very good indeed. Almost as good as the other ferret did!
The ferrets played tug o’ war with the sock for a bit, then went romping across the vast expanse of the Hub, which seemed so much bigger to a ferret. They chased each other round and round, up and down stairs, in and out of rooms and under furniture.
Becoming more adventurous, they found ferret-sized holes to explore, wriggling sinuously through air ducts and cable conduits before returning to the open area, where they pounced on each other.
Wrestling the other ferret was exciting! Rolling over and over they nipped at each other, tugged on tail tips and ears, pawed and chewed each other all over. The intoxicating scent of the blue-grey ferret made Ianto-ferret feel quite giddy and licking it, he discovered it tasted as good as it smelled. The other ferret seemed to agree, so they turned their attention to grooming each other enthusiastically. It was bliss!
