Fatso, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fatso
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Champagne Siamese Ferret
Home: State College, Pennsylvania, USA
   Fatso (aka Podo), is my first ferret and he is the child of my heart. He and I share such a special bond that sometimes I just want to cry when I look at him in my arms - he is so sweet. Fatso is a champagne siamese ferret (that is his color and pattern). He is from Path Valley Farms in PA and quite large for an early neuter boy - just around five pounds! He is my ambassador ferret, if ever I need to do a Ferret Awareness Day or any kind of public trips - he is the ferret that goes with me. He is so sweet and gentle that he would never hurt a soul (except my mom, he thinks she's kind of tasty!).

    Fatso lives with Skinny and Sweet Pea, but gets along with all ferrets. He is what I call the social director when a new ferret comes into the shelter. He is a big hit at the ferret shows, too! He has won Heaviest Hob at two of the four shows I have entered him in this year - beating even a German whole hob one time! I normally show in him in Champagne or Cinnamon color specialty and Siamese or Point Pattern (in the winter - he loses his pattern during his summer coat change). He has even placed 10th (out of 75 ferrets) in one of the Championship Shows. I don't know what I will do when Fatso is no longer a part of my life, hopefully that will be a long time away. I love him so much.
