Bear, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bear
Age: Four year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sable Ferret
Home: Malvern, Arkansas, USA
   Bear is my adorable four-year-old sable ferret. He was used in an observational experiment with five of his siblings when he was a little kit and when the girl who conducted the experiment was finished she found homes for all six of them and I got Bear and his sister, Tourette. Bear has been through many illnesses, some mild and some scary, but he has always pulled through and he is the best ferret a person could own. He will let me hold him for long periods of time which is unusual for a ferret and whenever I give him a Cheerio or a raisin he will bristle his tail like a bottle brush and make the cutest dooking noises. He closes his eyes and savors every bite of his treats. Bear loves to steal my sons socks and hide them behind the washer and one day when I was cleaning I found over twelve socks tucked neatly away. He loves to drag hair brushes under the couch also. Bear means the world to me and everyone who meets him fall in love with him. His name may be Bear, but he is the sweetest, most gentle of ferrets I have ever owned.
