Smokey -- Otterpooka's Ferret


Smokey passed away Friday, May 12th, 2006 due to insulinoma (cancer of the pancreas).

We adopted her in July 2000. She was about a year old when we adopted her.

Smokey is a sable ferret. She is full of energy and will usually only hold still for a moment. Her favorite toys are a brush that has had it's soft rubber handle removed since she adopted it (so she doesn't end up eating any of the rubber) and any 2-liter bottle she can push around.

Smokey is a very sweet ferret (especially for having been rescued from abuse by Bandit's and her previous owners). She loves people and warms up to strangers very well.

She has received the Certificate of Achievement for the PetSMART Basic Education Training Program. She will now stand up on her hind legs, come when called, lay down flat on the floor (speedbump style) and roll over. She also served as a good distraction for the large dogs that made up the rest of the class.


"Is there anything shiny in here?"
just dice.

"How about in here? Any keys?" Nope. Just a pocket.

"Your awake. I'm awake.
Why am I still in here?"

"That's my brush. Gimme."
This is Smokey standing on her hind legs .

This is Smokey, half in an orange freezer cup, trying to see if she can lick any left over soda off the bottom.

Smokey as the rare Portland Trailblazers turtle .
 
This is Smokey with her nose sniffing the lens of the camera. She is so close that all that can be made out is her wiskers and her ear.
