Bye Bye to a Brave little Girl.

Hello Woofers.

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.

Little Miss May has been suffering from Insulinoma for some time now and we have been amazed at how she has put up such a fight.

We thought that she was leaving us last Christmas but she pulled around and even put on some weight with the help of Old Two Legs and a few packs of convalescence powder and a steady supply of Prednisolone which is a steroid medication.

One of the side effects of Insulinoma is fits which May was suffering from with greater regularity.

Today she had a bad series of fits which were upsetting for her as well as painful.

OTL decided that it was time she had a rest from these attacks and telephoned the vet.

Miss May has always been a brave, brave ferret. She would walk beside her sister, Miss April, supporting her on her shoulder if she got tired after coming to the end of her morning walk.

She was always there to cuddle April after the morning rampage and was there by her side when April passed away on the way back from her last morning walk.

When she met Eric for the first time she chased him around the cage something terrible.

 After a while she settled down with him and they both enjoyed a happy and loving relationship.

As much as we wanted May to remain with us OTL felt that to keep her with us was not in her interest.

So, we have let her go ahead of us and she is now sleeping in the garden urn where her sister and all the other ferrets are sleeping.

Miss April and Miss May.

Daisy, Holly, Miss Wendy and Eric de Ferret.
