End of an Era

This morning we put the last ferret to sleep.  Opie was the hardest one to do, not only because he was the last one but because he hasn't been very clear about when it was time. Mentally Opie was still doing very well and for the most part his body was cooperating.  But he had stopped using his litter box in his cage awhile ago and it was hard to keep him clean.  I believe he was occasionally having some seizures overnight as well.

Opie was the one who taught all visiting dogs about respect to ferrets.  Any visiting dog would immediately get bitten by an Opie, and sometimes he would be a bit slow to let go!  But once you were accepted into his household he was very sweet and playful.


Rest well my Opium.  I've owned ferrets for 15 years and the house will feel empty without them.

I'm so sorry! I always loved seeing your ferrets in pictures.
