The gift that keeps on giving

By Tamara Clark

Local ferret Kanela was Mina’s Christmas gift to Priscilla three years ago.

She was the runt of the litter which stood out to Mina as an overwhelmingly adorable trait. Her owners think it’s a possibility that her teeny-tiny nature somehow correlates to her incredible sneakiness.

The couple describe their furry little companion as a cheeky little devil.

Kanela’s favourite activity in the world is stealing socks (but only the dirty ones). In fact, she loves to steal whatever she can get her tiny paws on, with her shifty missions often going unnoticed for a significant period of time!

If her life had a soundtrack, everyone in her life knows it would be the Pink Panther theme song.

Mina is a fashion film producer and Priscilla is a pattern maker for Kookai. So, when they told Southbank News Kanela lives to gallivant, run and strut around their Southbank apartment, the dots were immediately connected. Basically, she’s a fashionista, just like her human parents!

According to her mums, Kanela’s most quirky habits were her addictions to biting and scratching. She seems to be an inherently kind creature, yet her excitement for destruction raises some questions, at times.

While her body is small, her personality is huge and it just keeps getting bigger as she grows older. Kanela was the gift that has kept on giving, according to Priscilla •
