I be dead and stinkin up teh place!!


« on: April 01, 2007, 10:46:26 AM »

We have gotten down to the last of the chicken I made for Simon the Ferret (and Tino too, but this is all Simon is eating now).  Just hacked up and ground 2 whole chickens (bones too) and a carton of livers, added some filtered water to a 10 (?) quart pot and cooking it up.  Then I have to fine blend it (they don't like it lumpy!) and freeze into containers.  In the morning he gets it with some fish oil in it.  And I mix some chicken baby food in too.  They like the taste of that, but I think it at first was because it wasn't as lumpy so they get less baby food mixed in.

Simon has been on this for the past 2 weeks and has put back some weight and is doing much better.  2 weeks ago I was ready to have him put to sleep.  Sad Since then it is like he has reversed aged a few years!   Smiley

Only 2 people have known what was going on (thanks guys!  Kiss ) which has not been a good time.  I also help Simon express his bladder twice a day and that too has helped him immensely overall.  He's 9 years old, and neither him or Tino have had any of the common ferret diseases that usually make a ferret lifespan only 5-7 years, so I consider us lucky.   I credit this in part to them haven't been vaccinated in 7 years where most people vaccinate them for distemper every year and sometimes rabies yearly also.   Angry Along with putting flea crap and now heartworm meds are being pushed too.  Meanwhile ferret diseases are considered "normal"  I say to hell with that!   Angry    I don't know how long this "upswing" will last with Simon, it has been up and down for a year now but this latest spell has been the worst yet, but I intend to do what I can for him.

  If anyone wants to joke or make fun of what I am doing it will be deleted off this board.  You can take it to the X if you feel the need.

   My 2 ferrets are the 2 male relationships I have had the longest, so they will get whatever it takes for their quality of life.

I second it...any bad or negative comments will be deleted.


I am glad to hear he's still moving forward.  I can barely imagine the last year or so has been a day to day struggle. 

As long as they are happy....& sustain a good quality of life....you couldn't be a better pet owner.

Flower, what's the S.U.D?

  I believe it is ferret hospice here now.  Sad  Last week it was like he was 2 years younger and now it is like we didn't even have that good spurt.  He has gone backwards so fast this time. I still help express his bladder.  He will now only lick a little food and then I feed him with a syringe.  He tolerates that, but he is starting to fight me after a little bit by trying to keep his mouth clamped shut.  He would never bite, so that is why I think I am managing to get in him what I do.  If he doesn't bounce back in the next day or so and starts being more enthusiastic about eating, or starts to really fight me when I try and feed him, then...... it will be time.   It's probably time now, I just don't think that I am ready yet.     Cry
