Lucky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucky
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Ferret
Home: Florida, USA
   Lucky had a very hard life before we found her. We rescued her in November 2003 and she was extremely ill with ECE "Green Slime Disease." We got her on Saturday after a vet checked her, and we took her to our vet Monday morning, Right then our vet said she is in bad shape, and they kept her until Thursday. She made it through, and today is the queen of our nineteen ferrets, she rules the roost ...

    Lucky is quite the lady, she is the smallest of our ferrets and dominates them all, she is such a sweet little girl and loves to be held and loved, and loves to go into her gramma's closet and hide. She really doesn't do tricks per se, but she has learned that when she comes over and stands up and she will be picked up and held which she loves so much. She loves to play with all of her brothers and sisters, she'll roll over on her back and paw at them and start squeaking at them, or she'll run over to them and pounce on them. For a little girl she's larger then life.

    She has come along way since last November, when she would literally attack our albino for no apparent reason. Now she likes to cuddle with him! It's so funny to watch the bigger male ferrets with her, it's like they know that she will set them straight. When they want to play and she seems like she doesn't, she'll get up and chase them around. Puts them in their place!
