Ickis, our youngest, yet...chubbiest ferret
(Minneapolis, MN, US)
Ickis - What a character!
My boyfriend and I had already gotten two ferrets a month and a half before we saw Ickis and absolutely fell in love with him. He was very small when we had gotten him, now, a few months later, he is the biggest lovable boy ever.
We took his name from an early '90s cartoon show called "Aaah Real Monsters", as our other two were named off "Angry Beavers". And I tell you, he really is a little monster when he is let out of his cage.
We weren't sure of the other two liking a new brother, but they accepted him right away, he even got our little one to stop biting things some how. I don't know how he did it. Those two became best buddies, they always cuddle together while sleeping, even if Ickis crushes little Daggett.
Since he has become a part of our family, he has sprung into a silly little guy. He has two favorite toys and one of them, he always sets in the litter box ever-so-nicely when he thinks his toy has to poop. Really, the cutest thing I've ever seen.
And since Ickis is so chubby, he waddles instead of scurries. He reminds me of a badger sometimes. Also, whenever someone is talking to him, he either likes to stick his face up your nose or digs his nose into your lips. And he is quite the talker, he dooks like crazy whenever he hears his orange squeeky dog toy.
Ickis is very awesome and one of the most handsome ferrets, I always get comments on him when we take him to run errands for him.
