This has taken me a couple of weeks to bring myself to write this. In the space of 3 days I lost micky and vic. First was vic she was fine at 5pm when I gave them there dinner ( 3 pigeons 1 rabbit & 2 chicken carcasses) I went back to see them at 8pm and she had sadly died. The vet said it was a heart attack . She was 5 years old and as fit as a fiddle, she would work for hours chasing rabbits all day. Them there was Micky, the day before he died he was absolutely fine docking and war dancing with the others, the following day I got home from work, went in to feed them and he came out of one of there sleeping areas and he was skin and bone, I couldn't believe it was even possible for that to happen, as I went to pick him up he went to do a wee and it was pure blood, I took him to the vets and after some tests it came back that his kidneys, liver were in extreme failure so I had he put to sleep. He was coming up to 12 and he had a great life, he acted like a kit till his dying day.
Losing 2 so  close has hit me hard and also the other ferrets. They a missed so much

Having ferrets in your life makes you want more ferrets 😉

That's awful Lee... It's scary how quick they can go down hill...

We had a rescue Jill (Snowey) who came to us at 7 years old. She seemed as fit as a fiddle, and was a proper maniac, literally bouncing off the walls, and the same as you, one night, before going to bed, she was all over the place, having ferretone, and playing like a mad thing, and the following morning, stone cold.... Same thing, vet said it was a heart attack... never saw it coming.

Sweet Dreams Vic and Micky, you had a great time doing what ferrets are meant to do. Have a ball at the Rainbow Bridge.

I ferret proofed my house... but they still keep getting in

Weaseling out of things is important to learn! It's what separates us from the animals.....  Except the weasel....(Homer J Simpson)
