My tiny 1.5 lb ferret, who eat's like he's 10 pounds. :]

This is Sweazle. I've wanted a ferret ever since I was little and whenever I called the pet store, they happened to be on sale and I had just gotten paid, so I went in and within 10 seconds I chose him. If you're wondering about his odd name, its Sweazle "Stinky-Weasel" He loves Cats, Dogs, Feet, and Hair. We tell everyone he has Tourette's syndrome. Because he jumps into walls, off the bed, and always jumps sideways. He eat's ridiculous amounts and doesn't gain weight. He's 1.5 pounds, but was 1 pound whenever we got him. We have no idea of his age but we assume less then 1 year because of how small he is. If he's curled in a ball he fits in my hand :) He has a habit of laying down to eat, or just laying his head in his food bowl to eat. So I figure this picture show's his true Fat-Side. The love of his life is Newspaper if it's shredded, it's to a point we use it as his bedding because he will tunnel through it all night long. He's the most loving ferret in the world, he opens his mouth and shakes his head while it's open and sticks your fingers inside his mouth but he never hurts or even bites down :) he also climbs onto your shoulders and rubs his face against your cheeks. He is absolutely wonderful. :] Hope y'all enjoy my story.
