Woo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Woo
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cinnamon Ferret
Home: Tiline, Kentucky, USA
   I would like to introduce you to my ferret Woo. He is one of the sweetest souls to grace this fine Earth and I'm reminded of the good in the world when I look into his soft brown eyes. Woo is special in so many different ways, but I would like to share with you why he is special enough to be honored.

    About two weeks ago Woo started to lose his hair between his shoulder blades and on his chest. At first we thought it was irritation from where the other ferrets nipped at him in play, but it soon got worse. Yesterday we took Woo to our vet and he was diagnosed with adrenal gland disease. Surgery is not an option for my poor fuzzy, but I understand there are alternatives, which we're looking in to.

    For now, Woo's being the little trooper he is, he plays all day, and sleeps all night, then does it all again. Sometimes he'll fall down in the middle of playing and give me a scare, but he always gets up again, looks about as if to say, "Why is everyone looking at me? Let's play!"

    And that is the spirit of my fuzzy friend. The one whom I love so much. That's Woo!
