Well, take a deep breath and accept congratulations because that
sounds like normal ferret play with dancing that got so exciting
he had a spell of the itchies.

I agree. If someone was watching my boys, sometimes they would think
I put
itching powder in their cage. They (esp. the albino) will have such
fits, bitting, grinding with teeth, scratching, getting up to run
flipping to the next itch spot. One will actually snap awake from a
sleep, jump up and fly to a shelf and have an itching fit.
