Bandit, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bandit
Age: Five years, three months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sable Ferret
Home: Greenville, North Carolina, USA
   I got this adorable little boy, along with his brother, Taz, when I was a freshman in college. They are affectionately known as "The Boys" in my family. Over the years, they have been such a joy to have as pets, as long as they are staying out of trouble! Bandit is very laid back, sweet, and a total charmer! He loves trying to entice me into doing things. When he wants out of the cage, he will start rolling over and posing, in hopes of persuading me to let him out. It usually works! He is notorious for stealing anything that has rubber buttons. His favorites are remotes but he also enjoys hiding calculators and my phone. Bandit is very cute and cuddly but he doesn't enjoy being held for more than a minute or two. When he wants to get down, he gives you kisses on your cheek. He isn't nearly as active as Taz but he enjoys a good romp every now and then. Both boys love the furry mice toys (made for cats) that make noise when shaken. There are constantly about 20-25 under my bed, along with hidden treats and food! I've recently discovered that they enjoy squeaky toys too!

    My boys have been so much fun to have as pets. They are like my children! I can always count on them to make me laugh and smile, even when that is the last thing I want to do. They are the greatest ferrets.
