You didn't do it, Pat.

If the ferret had cystine stones then going to the new higher animal protein diet did it --
just as we accidently did it to both Hilbert and Morney because we didn't know their
kidneys had that genetic vulnerability so in trying to help we accidently harmed.

NOT struvite, though, and your ferret tested as having struvite stones... Struvite stones
involve too much plant matter, so unless the ferret is accidently stealing and eating plant
matter at your house...

It is possible that this time he just happened to not be able to pass the sludge so he
blocked and what what seen had been in there for a good while already.

Hilbert was likely doing that for a while before he blocked, too, except, of course, that his
was from the opposite problem.

(Morney on the other hand was amassing a cystine stone so big that it almost filled her

So, let yourself off the hook unless you find that he is secret vegetarian when you aren't
looking (shades of Robbie on the Dinosaurs Hensen-Disney puppet videos...) and even
then that isn't your fault.
