Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret here to say Bye Bye to this year.
January this year Miss April first went to the vet 'cos she wasn't as well as she could be and got diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy! That is a heart condition and she needed medicine to keep down the fluid that was building up in her body.
She was a very brave ferret and tried to join in all the games but she often got tired and needed a carry or some rest.
Miss Wendy had an operation on her tummy to stop her having babies and the vet did a super job 'cos her scar was very small, not like the one that I had when I had my tummy done!
We had a super time in May up in Scotland and Old Two Legs took us all over the place visiting new beaches and climbing all over the rocks!
The Ladies at the Allhallows Croppers kindly helped finance an operation on Rufus, a ferret that got handed into the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue and we were told he is now fully recovered and living life to the full!
A Super Big Licky Kiss to all the Croppers for that.
It was a super summer with loads of sunshine and swimming!
I don't think I have had so much swimming in my life! I managed to get Holly Chops in for a paddle but as normal, she declined to go any further in than her paws!
Early in September we lost Miss April, she had a heart attack on her way back from a walk on the beach, a sad day for us all.
Towards the end of October Miss May went off to Harrietsham Ferret Rescue to be introduced to some ferrets and after a few scuffles, she came back home with a young ferret called Eric de Ferret!
Well, it took a little while before they settled down with each other but now they are inseparable and playing all the time!
We got news of Izzy and her three pups, a super Christmas present.
Young Archie Babe has kept us informed on the goings on in his kennel and how he sufferers at the hands of the Poodle Parlour and we reckon he has paid more to the vet this year than Holly, the ferrets and me all together!
Talking of vets.
Eric has got to go for an operation next early year to stop him chasing the ladies! We haven't told him yet 'cos OTL didn't want to spoil his Christmas!
OTL says he is going to 'Get a Quote' from our vet.
It has been amazing just how warm the Autumn has been and even Winter, so far, if this carries on like this we may cancel Winter all together!
Mind you, we still have January and February to get through yet!
So, as we finish 2016 everyone is in good health, the ferrets are all cuddly, Holly and I get and give cuddles every night.
The Missus is looking forward to a super holiday in Texas with her mates and OTL has booked holidays in Scotland and Dorset!
So far, next year looks like it's going to be a good one!
From all of us here to all of you out there.
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Loads of Luv,
Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
