Deli, the Pet of the Day
Name: Deli
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cinnamon blaze ferret
Home: New Brunswick, Canada
 
   I had always wanted a ferret, and when I found Deli amongst seven other ferrets in a local petstore. He wasn't one of the original ones I thought I wanted. But he clung to my hand, and wouldn't let me leave without him. All the other ferrets were very young (he was the oldest one there) and he played well with my other ferret, Snaks. It was a match! So home he came.

    Deli is deaf, but is trained through exaggerated facial expressions and some visual tricks. He can tell when I'm feeling upset, and no matter what he's doing, he'll stop and come and just sit in my lap and wait for me to calm down. He goes above and beyond being a "normal" ferret and often I wonder if he knows me better than I know him. He is precious.
