Iccarus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Iccarus
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Fennec Fox
Home: Illinois, USA
   Iccarus is special not only because he is a fennec fox, but because he is such an interesting little creature. He is almost like a mix between a dog and a cat; he loves to play and is friendly like a dog, but climbs and jumps with the agility of a cat. He chases a little tennis ball around, and plays fetch, and loves doggy biscuits. He's very friendly toward our dog Muffy, though she doesn't care much for him. That doesn't stop him from trying to make friends! He eats a diet similar to that of a cat, with high taurine, but he loves carrots and celery as well. He loves when I come home, and he wags his furry little tail and squeals with joy. He is one of the best pets I've ever had, and I love him.

    I live in Illinois, and in certain places you need permits. Other counties don't require them. We decide to get him because he was in need of adoption and a real home. He could never be left in the wild, and here he gets all the love and attention he could ever want.
