How do you know when a ferret is dying?
When it's time - a ferret that is dying will quit eating and
will it no longer engage in any normal activities.
If your ferret has a terminal disease and
* Loses weight and becomes skeleton thin * Barely has energy to
get up to use the litter box * Sleeps most of the time * Begins to
lose control of hind legs * Never does the Dance of Joy * Never
gets out of bed unless you pick him up * Only eats when you hand
feed him He is waiting for you to let go and say good-bye
For All Those Who Go On Ahead However did I find you
And how was I to know everyday
When I come home burdened, weary, frustrated or sad
One look at your cheerful little faces that wait to greet me
You dance your hoppy dance of joy
And stand, just so
I must almost fall to avoid stepping on you
in your quest to be near me
You'd steal anything not nailed down
Your box habits are appalling
Yet you love me and that's more than enough
I see it in your button eyes
The occasional kiss
The way you give hugs by laying on my foot
I often think of how much joy you leave in your wake
I often think how short your brilliant little lives are
And how will I survive your passing?
But deep inside my soul I know
When our Father calls me home
you will all be there to greet me
And you will lead me to the new place
you stash your toys and stolen goods
And there beneath the very throne of God at last
I will find my heart.
