Everybody Likes our Felicia...

The fame of Felicia Ferret, NAL's own special, fur-lined pipe cleaner, has spread wide and far. She is the subject of an article in the current issue of TIME magazine, and the story of her unique talent will shortly appear in England. Felicia has been the theme of editorials in two Chicago newspapers and has prompted many inquiries, suggestions, and smiles of approval from the general public.

Adding to the store of information on ferrets in general, one question and answer article about Felicia's ancestors reports that the Department of Interior considers the ferret an endangered species and that, in 1970, action was taken to save the ferret population. A native of Africa, the ferret is now officially welcome in the State of South Dakota which has signed a cooperative agreement with the Interior Department to protect the ferret on 42,000 acres of the Badlands.

In an interview with Felicia's previous owner, Stan Fredin of Gaylord, Minnesota, a Minneapolis paper headlines, "Can a girl with three-color hair make it big in the electronic age?" Fredin notes that a ferret has brown, white and black hair all on one small, elastic body. Fredin is pleased at the sudden fame of one of the 300-400 ferrets he has raised over the years as a hobby. He also raises rare ducks, geese, and pheasants.
