Last night my oldest ferret, Jasmine, passed away. She and Chloe had been together since they were kits. When Chloe died, Jasmine lost a lot of her joy in life. She was very old, and she died in her sleep. She was in her box, all curled up. Since everybody dies, I think that's about the best way to go. No illness, no suffering, you just go to sleep and don't wake up. As always when one of my ferrets passes on, I buried her in a big jar, with some of her favorite things from her stash, some food, a nice cloth to lay on, and some shiny coins. I miss her but she had a good life.
Ragnar and Rowena are having a rough time. I thought the implant would make them well right off. Instead, it seems to have initially weakened them. My wife says these implants are like chemotherapy for humans, and that it is hard on them. But the chart that came with the medicine says it takes about two weeks before real improvement can be seen. Until then, I am just keeping them warm and giving them as much vitamin oil and high calories paste as they want.
