Subject: Do Dr. Williams - Thank you SO much...
I just wanted to write and tell you how your words touched my
heart about our Lady's death (April 27, 2001) from internal
hemorrhaging due to an adrenalectomy mistake on her vet's
part. Since then, we have buried her and planted a minature
rosebush over her grave and added her to the Rainbow Bridge.
We have just recently purchased an Angora feret from the Czech
Republic. She is spayed and descented, very long-haired, and
is named Nikita (my daughter's favorite of the Slavic names).
Boy, she's a biter!! I heard this is because they are not
exposed to humans as much as Marshall Farm Ferets...We are
doing the time-outs and the Bitter Apple, I hope it works
soon. One question - what is the story about ferrets getting
enough sunlight in the day that helps extend their lives? Is
this true? How does it work? I want Nikita to live to a ripe
old age - that's why we got an Angora - supposedly their
disease rate is really low. Is this true too? She is 12 weeks
and eats like a horse - should her food still be moistened?
She eats Totally Ferret - a bowl a day! She is going to grow
to be the size of a cat!! I thank you for your valuable time
and assisstance in these matters.
