Rascal, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rascal
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Marshall ferret
Home: Milan, Michigan, USA
   Rascal has a dark sable coat and silver feet. He was going to be destroyed because his first owner passed away and no one wanted him. My wife Jayne and I decided to take him in to find him a new home. He brought us so much joy and laughter we couldn't give him up! With his antics and sweet child-like disposition he captured my wife Jayne's and my heart. He is such a funny little weezil we can hardly stand it!

    Rascal is like a very young, curious, hyperactive child. He loves to "steal" things and horde them in his favorite hiding places. He loves shiny objects and has a thing for stealing raw potatoes that sometimes weigh more than he does! He is always on the go when he is out of his cage. He has just recently began letting us hold him for very short periods without squirming to get down and investigate more important weezil stuff!

    He has brought us more joy and laughter than we have had in a very long time. We could not stand to see him leave! One of his favorite tricks is to get under an empty laundry basket and push it all around the house. He has discovered he can push it to where he wants it and then get on top and use it as a step stool to reach things. He is a very independent weezil and is becoming more affectionate the longer he is here. He is way cool!
