Pippin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pippin
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Sable Ferret
Home: Panama City, Florida, USA
   When this little ball of fluff came to us, she was the runt of the litter, and like the Lord of the Rings halfling character... she was definitely a "Fool of a Took!" She quickly weaseled her way into our hearts though and gained so much weight that during her last visit to the vet, she was labeled as "slightly overfed and overweight" - I guess that would come from the occasional cheerio or yogie treat she's given (ahem!). Pippin also inspired us to adopt three other little fuzzbutts who were unwanted and came to us from neglected homes and/or abusive former owners. We have never been happier with Pippin's playful roommates: Gandalf (a dark-eyed white), Strider (a silver blaze), and Arwen Star (a petite silver mitt). Hmmm, see a pattern here?

    One of the reasons Pippin is our little sweetheart is her affectionate nature. She's the only one of the bunch that adores our constant hugs and kisses. She is also perfectly litter trained (which makes us ecstatic!) and she's the only ferret amongst them that our cat Ming will actually tolerate. Go Pippers! =) You're the best!
