Wild About Harry
There is, of course, more than one Harry in the world so this isn't a post about Harry the Prince (just so we're on the same page right at the start). This is a post about Harry the Black-Footed Ferret.
For those who have read the first book in the Time Rovers' series, you'll know there's a stuffed ferret in there named Fred. In honor of Fred's living relatives, I made a donation to this very worthy charity Black-Footed Ferret Recovery Program and adoped a ferret named Harry (Potter). He's a cutie. The program is trying to rebuild the decimated ferret population and Harry is one of the "studs" (grin). I can imagine the lady ferrets think he's quite handsome.
As ownership of a black-footed ferret is illegal (they're on the endangered list) this is about as close as I'll get to having one. So I invite you to consider sponsoring a ferret. You get a wonderful packet of information, a nifty refrigerator magnet, a picture of your ferret and a smile that comes with doing something worthwhile.
Now you know why I'm wild about Harry.
