Baby Bjorn 12/30/06-12/27/11

Rest in peace Bjorn.  His initial name when we got him was Baby and of course that didn't stick with us.  However Bjorn means bear in Norwegian and for some reason being Baby Bjorn seemed to fit him.  

Bjorn was the biggest thief in our house.  All the ferrets love to hoard things, but Bjorn was the greatest at it.  His favorite thing to steal was pens but he would eye any new object.  Successful thefts have ranged from a hammer to an extremely large Loofa doll dragged under a 1/2inch closet door.  He's also had wrestling matches with Adam over who gets to have the Wii remote.
Everyone who has met the ferrets loves Bjorn the most.  He had the softest fur and was the most patient ferret for being held by adoring fans.  Of course he was still a ferret and couldn't tolerate being still for too long.
Bjorn was a ladies man.  His best friend was Molly and I know she will miss him terribly.  He was also Lance's introduction to ferret play, teaching him just how hard he can bite their tails before ferrets strike back.
Goodbye buddy.

Let's see if A-nony-mouse works!! Amy here!!

Is that a good life expectancy for a ferret?

I am sorry. These little ones never live long enough. What a cute and funny little guy. Love how Lance is lip licking after that speaking to!!!!

I'm so sorry you lost your little friend.
I have 9 wonderful ferrets myself,they are incredible animals.

It worked Amy!

No Bjorn died pretty young. He was a few days short of his 5th birthday and ferrets can easily live to be 8-10yrs of age. However they are very prone to cancer and I've lost many of my previous ferrets to it at around 5-6yrs of age. Bjorn wasn't showing the typical signs of it but we didn't have him tested since we couldn't afford surgery anyway. He was losing a lot of weight and was very tired so something was wrong with him. I was hoping he would pass on his own but it got to the point where I knew he was suffering and I had to take him in.

This post is really too informative to us, good perception of images and good description by which any one can get information what they want to this post.......As for as my thinking is concerned this one is the best post.

Thanks for sharing such a informative post.
