Whatever else is going on, Sunday is my day to rest . It's a nice day here in the mountains. Cooler than usual and not as humid. The sun is out and there's a nice breeze blowing.
Last night was a long one. My oldest ferret, Chloe, has been failing for some time. She just simply wore out. Chloe was born Dec 19, 2004 and lived on a farm south of here for most of her life. Three years ago, the farmer was foreclosed on, and they had to move to an apartment in the city. They needed homes for their two ferrets, Jasmine and Chloe. So the two older ferrets came to live with us.
Chloe has had a good, long life. Ferrets usually live about six years but she lived much longer. The last year or so, she mostly slept in her snuggy bag, and came out for a bit to eat and drink. Yesterday she went to sleep in the evening and it became clear she was not going to wake up. She died peacefully about five this morning. We all die and I think Chloe was lucky. She didn't have any disease, she enjoyed a comfortable life with other ferrets around her, and she left in her sleep.
Today I don't have much planned. I will probably read a little and maybe go for a walk later in the day. I might take the dogs down to the waterfall for a bit. Whatever I do it'll be something quiet.
