Lilly <3

Lilly was my baby girl, the moment I saw her I knew I wanted her, she was so small, and such a sweetie..my entire family loved her as well, I made the mistake of letting her roam, like a dog, or a cat...It just made me so happy when she would be waiting at the door for me when I got home....well I got her in June of 2010, when she was 8 weeks old...and in February of 2011, we couldn't find her..we thought she got out, so we put up signs everywhere and called animal shelters..I have two younger siblings they were 5 and 8 at the time, we also have a pool..I was in school one day when I got a text from my Dad saying they found my baby, and that she was dead. I asked how, and he told me my Mom found her in the pool. I never forgave myself for letting her do her own thing, and I never thought that anything like that could ever happen, she was a great swimmer, but her mommy wasn't there to help her out this time. I still think about her every day. I miss her so much! She was everything to me..

After she died, my boyfriend took me to look at ferrets, just holding them made me feel better....and that's when I found my baby Wolverine...when I picked him up, I looked at my boyfriend and started crying hysterically, and that's when he knew that he was going to end up getting him for me. Wolvy was my Valentine's day present...and even though him and Brutus make me so happy, every single day, I still think of my baby girl and how much I love and miss her.

Never gets any better
by: Mike

I can relate all too well, we had a sweet white male we named Gandhi because he was so pacifistic, his best friend was an older white male named Old Man Weasel or Granpa. When Granpa finally passed away, we had him on our bed as he passed and he drooled on the sheets. I took them off to wash them and put them in the laundry room. Our kids are NEVER allowed in the laundry room, too many things in there that can be dangerous. Anyway, somehow, Gandhi got in and went up in the bundle of sheets to look for his buddy and went to sleep. I had no idea he had gotten in and I put them in the washer and..... When I took them out and felt something heavy and saw him, it was the absolute worst feeling I have ever had. I would give anything to undo it and not a day goes by I dont think of him and wish I had known....

bless you

It is sometimes hard to understand why death is allowed to happen to something so loved and adorable. however, in time, maybe you will look back at how you have moved on and got new ferrets and giving them all the love they need and deserve. I guess what I am saying is out of all bad there is always some good to become of it if your heart is open and in your case it is. RIP Lilly, Gone but never forgotten. x

Sorry
by: Anonymous

So sorry for your loss. It is really hard to loose them to death or even just loose them. I have had 6 pass away over the last 7 years and I still think about them and cry everytime. 3 died from cancer, 1 from fluid in the lungs, 1 to renal failure, and 1 at the hands of a vet who made a huge mistake during surgery. I still have 7 more. We let them all run free but believe me our house has been fully ferret proofed and all doors are manned when someone leaves. We actually have Bella who was a ferret that escaped someone's home and we found her. Just forgive yourself and move on because if you don't it will haunt you forever. I had to forgive myself for taking Binx to the vet for surgery even with my doubts. Your Lilly is at the rainbow bridge playing with my 6.

Very sorry for your loss :(
by: Vanessa

So very sorry for your loss of Lily. We had something similar happen to us last year. We let our sweet baby girl Rikki Tikki roam, and September 16th was the last time we saw her. We never ended up finding her. We think she got out when we had pizza delivered that evening. It took a long time for me to get over her not being around. She would always climb into our bed and nibble on my hubby, our son and my feet when it was time to wake up. Still miss her dearly after almost a year of her being gone. We can only hope that someone found her and is taking good care of her. That was our hope. If not she is in heaven playing with other ferrets. We have adopted 2 more since, they are like family to me, but will never replace our Rikki Tikki.
