(bay shore,ny suffolk)
Bandit was a great ferret.
He was playing like he always does and we tired him out. I went to call him out with the squeaker toy, that’s how we trained him to come to us, but he did not respond so I went to go look for him and found him lying unresponsive.
I rushed him to the vet. He had no red blood cells and no sugar in his system.
He was a very healthy ferret & the vet loved him when he went in for his shots. They also loved him at the nursing home.
They did not know why this happened but a few minutes after the vet, me and my husband held him, he took his last breath and passed away.
We had him for 4 great years – he was the king of the house and cage. He was great with kids and all animals he came across.
He was a rescue from a kid that was going to let him go into the wild in the heart of winter.
I would like to find out how these things could happen to a very healthy ferret.
Bandit will be missed by all. He’s up in animal heaven.
I will find another one or maybe two rescues.
