Moms everywhere know what a difficult task it can be to get your youngsters into bed at night. It’s important to be firm, but loving, and not take no for an answer — no matter how many times they beg for just “five more minutes.”

And this mama ferret knows the drill so well, she insists on dragging her humans into the mix, too. After making sure her kids are tucked away, she comes back for her human’s hand and just won’t give up. It’s so hilarious and adorable.

Hey, she’s just trying to make sure you get all the rest you need! Actually fitting in the cage is secondary to good sleep.
