Tesseract, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tesseract
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Cinnamon Ferret
Home: Maine, USA
   When I took these pictures, Tess was just a baby. We have five ferrets, but Tess is extra special to me. She was my first ferret, and she's the friendliest one I've ever seen. When I come home, she runs up to greet me, and she loves to go for rides with me. She travels in the sleeve of my coat, pausing every now and then to lick my wrist. In all her (admittedly short so far) life, she's never been even a tiny bit aggressive or unfriendly. And, although it's hard to tell from these pictures, as she matured, Tesser's fur took on a very reddish tint. Cinnamon ferrets are very rare, and Tess is beautiful now.

    Tesseract does very well with strangers--I call her my ambassador ferret, because if I hand her to someone, she snuggles close to them and goes to sleep.
