Elmo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Elmo
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Albino Gold Ferret
Home: West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
   My ferret's name is Elmo, he is two years old. He is an albino gold ferret but it's hard to see the gold which looks yellow in the photo. They are one of the rarest type of ferrets you can get. Elmo is sweet and does not bite and he is really smart for a ferret. He can practically open every cupboards, and he will take towels from a towel rack and make the towels into a bed!!!

    Elmo sometimes opens cupboards and drawers and even doors to get some things like rice, bread or raisins. Elmo likes to play in tunnels like all ferrets do, and he chases balls. I first thought of getting a ferret when I saw one in the pet shop, so asked the man who was working there if I could hold him and play with the ferret a bit. Of course, he said yes. So then after i played with that one sable ferret I always wanted one. I pleaded for one to my mom! We talked about it for around one year. Then she said yes. Then we looked for a place to adopt a ferret. We found a place over the waters to get a ferret. We had to talk on the phone about it. We did not know what Elmo was going to look like besides that he was an albino ferret. After all that they flew Elmo to the airport and that is how I got Elmo.
