Working For a Living

Through a long series of rabbit holes, I inadvertently discovered how contractors run cable through houses, particularly through tight spaces.

They use ferrets.

An example: The National Ferret School. An excerpt:
We can use our ferrets to thread cables underground, through pipes and conduits, behind false ceilings, through wall cavities and in many other situations.

We regularly use our ferrets, working with electricians, to thread cables under floorboards, through wall cavities and above false ceilings.

It's entirely delightful, and also delightful to find out that a collective of ferrets is known as a "business."

There are obviously other ways to run cable, and ferrets aren't as needed as they used to be, but this still confirms their pure boss status.
