Name: Mrs. Binkie
Age: Deceased, Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Ferret
Home: Oak Ridge, Missouri, USA
   Hi, my name is Mrs. Binkie. I'm a ferret! I would have been six years old this year. My mommy was Rachel. I was mommy's first ferret. I would always want to snuggle with her, and give her whiskery kisses on her face. When mommy was sad, I'd come and lay by her feet. She'd pick me up, and I'd lick away her tears. I was her best friend. After school everyday, she'd come and tell me what a beautiful ferret I was. She made me feel special. I was a calm, quiet ferret, I'd love to just sit and enjoy life with my mom. She was the one who rescued me from the ferret shelter. I had a bald tail then, because I'd had surgery to remove a tumor. But she saw through the outside and saw the inside. She saw my sweet, loving personality. My fur grew back, and she told me I was just as beautiful as the day she got me as when I had my fur grown back. I was a spoiled rotten ferret! Top quality food, fresh, soft clean bedding to snuggle and sleep in, and only the freshest water. Not to mention all the attention a ferret could ever want! Constant cuddling, kissing, and snuggling made me feel as warm and fuzzy on the inside as I am on the outside!

    Sadly, Mrs. Binkie passed away peacefully in her sleep earlier this year. She introduced me to the wonderful world of ferrets. She led me to find many friends who also share the love of ferrets. She was my inspiration in life, my comforter, and my best friend. Every time she looked at me I'd smile. It seemed she would smile back. She was like a porcelain doll, precious and delicate. One twitch of her nose and one kiss on the cheek was all it took to make my day. I will always love you Mrs. Binkie. You may be gone from this earth, but you will never be gone from my heart.
