Today was not the best day ever. Our eldest ferret, Eris, passed away last night.

It wasn't unexpected -- she was at least eight (I got her after she was grown up, so we don't know her age for sure). Over the last couple of days she wasn't eating or drinking much, so we sort of knew what was coming. But even earlier last week she was still happy and active; she didn't have a long illness or suffer, and I'm glad for that.

I'm thankful for the seven wonderful years we had with her. We will miss her very much.

I'm sad to hear that Eris has passed. As mouse said above, it's hard to lose a furry friend.

Oh, that is a sad day, for certain. Sorry to hear. Thank goodness for all the fond memories~ I wouldn't suppose that was one of the ferrets in the picture of the fiber, just about to dive into it and get all tangled up! That was just one of the cutest things. Not sure where I saw that pict though.

Thanks, y'all ... your comments mean a lot to me.

gypsy, I posted a picture of Houdini about to attack a giant roving on the PRGE blog. (The roving was safe, though!)
