To all of you who know that my Fuzzy was suffering from cancer and who was our first ferret now has gone. She crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today when the kind vets at Chatswood Vet Clinic put her to sleep. She was the best buddy any person could care for… Rest in Peace my little Fuzzy.
A Ferret’s Prayer
by Pamela Troutman
Understand me and I will be your loving pet.
I am not a rodent, but a carnivore.
I am not a wild animal, but a companion to man, domesticated
between the time of the dog and the cat.
Feed me as a cat, but only with dry food for clean teeth.
Keep litter boxes handy, and I will learn to use them.
Take me along as a dog, but with a leash or carrier so I do not get lost.
Do not leave me outdoors, I have no wild survival instincts.
Confine or watch me like a small child, because I am curious and like
to get into things.
Discipline when needed with words and soft actions, because sudden
force causes me to defend myself.
I am a little thief, give me soft socks to steal and hide, instead of rubber
toys to chew and swallow.
Let me visit the doctor as you would any family member, for a health
check and vaccinations yearly.
Have me spayed or neutered; I have no need to reproduce to add to the
Handle me daily, and I will be your loyal friend for many, many years.
I am fearless and friendly. I have personality. I seek companionship.
If you cannot give me that, then please pass me by.
Postscript: Fuzzy I miss you warming my feet in the bed.
