Mei, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mei
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Sable Ferret
Home: Tallahassee, Florida, USA
   Dook, dook! That's the sound Mei makes when she gets excited, along with her running around the bedroom and pouncing on plastic bags. Mei is my adorable and sweet ferret. I bought her from a pet store, after weeks of searching for the "right one." She was just six weeks old and didn't try to bite me at all, I knew it was going to be a good match.

    Mei's name means plum and pretty in Chinese. She still doesn't bite unless you make her very mad (i.e: pull her away from the computer cables she's chewing on). She really likes to jump in the tub and drink from the faucet. Sometimes she gets so excited about the tub, that she forgets I'm taking a shower or bath and jumps right in! Mei is not a happy ferret when she's submerged in water and looks like a sewer rat. She's super cute when she's wrapped up in one of her fleece blankies and just wakes up, she yawns, stretches and loves to lick.

   I love my Mei!
