My 7 month old ferret Heinz died yesterday. He was at a friends house and fell off of a dresser and landed on my friends wrist. He had internal bleeding. He was coming home on Friday... My friend is just devestated. As I am. Thanks for letting me speak about this. Please pray for everyone involved. Rest in peace, my little Heinzer, and go play with Emmit and Jim... Fin
Oooo I am so sorry for your loss. It is so sad when a pet dies, that pain is something the people on this forum truly understand. My thoughts and prayers are with you, hang in there and keep your faith in God, He will help you through this.
Thank you, guys, so much. From what I understand, Heinz had climbed on top of my friends 6' dresser, and started to fall off. Kyle did a big leaping dive, and when he caught Heinz, Heinz smacked off of his wrist and screamed. There was blood in his urine. For those of you that don't know too much about ferrets, their torsos are very delicate. They have very short rib cages, so you have to be very careful of their stomach area. There's no protection there. So I'm assuming when Heinz fell, he fell and landed on Kyle's wrist with his torso. He could have burst his spleen, or his kidneys. Who knows. The vet wouldn't see Heinz till next week, even when he knew there was blood in his urine. What an a**hole. So thanks again, everyone. You've been a big help... Fin
