Sebastian is a 14 year old meerkat who was legally bought as a pet in South Africa. But the owner was unable to provide a suitable living environment for him, so he surrendered Sebastian to an animal rehabilitation center and then to an animal refuge, where he lives with his meerkat friends. But he also loves his human friends and shows it by giving lots and lots of hugs.

Also, I want a meerkat.
