I think you'll find weasels are tiny, stoats are bigger, ferrets are much bigger, and polecats are the non-domesticated form of the ferret. The generic keyword would include "small, "long and thin", "agile", "vicious", and "stinks".
Bad poetry time:
"The stoat may be easil-
-Y told from the weasel
By the simple fact
That its tail is blacked
And its figure
A ferret is known to be small enough that a madman or a Northerner can put one down his (not normally "her") trousers. It's used for rabbiting, so can get down a rabbit hole (then again, so could Alice), and kill a rabbit when it finds it.
I dread to think what Mike was using. Vorpal Ferret of Doom?
