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.
