Nimitz, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nimitz
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Ferret
Home: Glendale, Wisconsin, USA
   This is Nimitz (Nimmy). Nimmy is smart, funny and cute. He will do just about anything for raisins. We used to give him prunes because he loves them but we found out the hard way that one large prune inside one little ferret can get pretty messy digestion wise. So we switched to raisins. He rolls over, and he kisses for raisins. Nimmy is four years old and sweet as can be. He has volunteered as a pet therapist, and we did a walk-a-thon for the Humane society, although I did most of the walking. He is the ferret in the house that tolerates the cats the best, mostly with that "I'll tolerate them if I must" look on his face. He is great with the kids, hates taking a bath, but loves fruit of any kind. He lives with his two "brothers" and two "sisters", and two geriatric cats.
