She's very beautiful! I love how black mink's fur seems to change colour in different lights. How old is she?

She is beautiful! There is a guy in the same state as me that raises and breeds pet mink. He trains them to be off lead. That would worry me to no end though, but have you thought about teaching your mink to be off lead?

Thank you for her.
Misaki is still always comes out in leash. I don't wan't to lose her and I don't have the utility to out her without leash ;)
(sorry but i'm don't understand the expression "to be off lead". So, I guessed you would talk about liberty of my mink during walks and if she have a leash).

Yes, that's what I mean. "To be off lead" means to "not be on a leash." ;)

This is what she means by off lead.

I train my mink so I don't have to use a leash all the time. Just when I feel it's necessary. I can turn my mink loose and call them back anytime I want. I don't need a leash when we go for walks. And as you can see from the first video I let my mink hunt like a wild mink would do. They love it!

Wow, she's so gorgeous. And very sleek too!

She looks like she's so happy and calm. Having owned her for a year now, do you have any insights you'd like to share on their adult behavior? Mink are really neat-looking, and Misaki is just stunning!

I think pet minks evolve according to their owner. They evolve much from 0 to one year. Misaki did not like hugs before 10 months but was still very nice. Now she loves hugs. These are wild animals that require a lot of time for education. Not ferrets, they are very different. I think those who want to buy a mink owe much to learn about those animals and be passionate.

When the education is good and the owner is passionate, minks are really amazing ! :mrgreen:

She is so cute. And it's great that you live somewhere where she is able to go swimming in lakes and climbing trees and do "wild things" too as well as as domestic. She's looks very happy and well-cared for. :)
