Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Bones is gone...

I, too, have lost a ferret this week, little Cocoa,
due to an accident. She was our third to lose in less
than 3 years. I had a similar situation to yours with
my precious Squirt about a year ago after two
surgeries and countless trips to the vet. I still
miss him terribly! You are in my prayers.....
