The Empty Cage

Folks, I am sad to say, one of my ferrets is gone (John). I found him today on the bottom of the cage (he had been sleeping and running around there for a few weeks) he was thin as a rail, I thought he was just sick and i took him out made sure he got water (he was super thirsty)...

But he did not look good at all so i rushed him over to the clinic, where i got the bad news, he was dieing of cancer (which happens alot for ferrets) and being 6 years old there was not much chance and i could not afford to try.

So he was put down about 4:30 this afternoon. (its weird, i was not that emotional.. but its just hit me hard writing this )

Some of the few pictures i have of him

I recived John from my Aunt Casey, he was my Cousins but his partner was mauled.

He traveled from North Carolina to Tennessee to be with me for about two years.

I loved how he would always lick my arm or chest or face since he loved salt.

Now... I grieve and hope Harvey is not hit too hard with his partner going.

John was named after John Crichton from the Farscape series (like Harvey is)
