Special to the Times

Cindy, a champagne-colored ferret raised by Gail Suzanne Burlaka of Bayonet Point, was named Senior Ferret of the Year at the American Ferret Association’s annual banquet in York, Pa.

BAYONET POINT — Cindy has an honored place now among ferret royalty.

Mischief Maker Ferret's Siena of Shamalar — better known as Cindy, the ferret featured last month in the Pasco Times — won Senior Ferret of the Year at the March 19 awards banquet of the American Ferret Association. She poses here with her blue Senior Ferret of the Year plaque and her certificate as a Gold Champion.

Bayonet Point resident Gail Suzanne Burlaka, who shows ferrets competitively, took in Cindy last year from a home where she had been neglected. Once Cindy was on the mend, Burlaka entered her in four shows — and Cindy garnered enough points to be the top-scoring ferret in the country over age 4.

Another one of Burlaka's ferrets, Mischief Maker Ferret's Anya Lenore of Shamalar, also received her Gold Champion certificate at the banquet.
