Detail, Sleeping Ferret: What would a manuscript be without any drolleries in the details? This tiny ferret, which measures in at about 0.5'' long, is inspired by my own beloved pets. Notice the paintbrushes it has dragged off to its stash. My ferrets have made themselves extremely useful in this project. Loki regularly jumped up on my desk to inspect my progress; with Pandora’s help, she very generously spread a bag of sand for quills all over the carpet; and my new boy Ragnarok was good enough to eat part of a kneaded eraser and steal a pink one, knowing I had bought a new one that was better. :) The photo on the right is Pandora sleeping.
