I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so very hard when we loose those who have stashed out hearts with all their other favorite things. She is in a better place now and dooking up a storm with all the other fuzzies on the other side of the bridge. She may have wanted to stay with you but all the others who have been lucky enought to have a loving ferrant like you were calling to her. Make sure to give your other furbabies extra love and you will help each other heal and never forget.

I am so so sorry Kpaz Your memorial to Ellie was so endearing and touching, but at the same time I couldn't stop crying last night when I read it so I couldn't write anything. Your Ellie reminds me so much of my Girby and how he passed (last month). Like your Ellie he was the healthiest of my babies, he was the picture of ferret health in my vets eyes. Then one day he just woke up sick and 2 blurry days later he was gone. There was really no way to know that he was sick and really nothing we could have done to prevent it, and it very much sounds like Ellie was the same. Take solace in the fact that Ellie passed painlessly, easily, and happily knowing that she was loved and could move on to the great works she was so desperately needed for across the Bridge. I just wanted you to know that you are very much not alone, and that you have us all to talk to when you need it!
Thank you all. This hurts so much. Goomba is barely eating and Pippin won't leave his side. I'm going to make soup for Goomba if he won't eat tonight. He just eats a chunk or two, sighs, and crawls into his hammock. My heart hurts for him. I don't think it's hit Pippin yet. I'm really worried about what will happen with him. I finally ate a meal, but I'm a wreck. Ellie was my girl. Everyone knew that. She was such a precious gift, she made me so happy. She was so passionate. She danced the hardest, dooked the loudest, loved and cared for all of us. I try to keep telling myself that she really had a good life, she loved us so very much and Goomba, Pippin, Daniel, and I loved her back. But at the end of the day...I just miss my Elliebear.
D.I.P. Ellie and Pippin, you both hold very dear places in my heart.

Words can't express how truly sorry I am for your loss of your sweet girl Ellie. Just reading your tribute made me want to almost start crying. It was very touching and sincere and full of love for her. I know what I have to say is little if nothing to ease the pain, but just with written word you're able to convey what a caring mother to your fuzzies that you are. Know that Ellie was filled with love to the very last moment. She loved you as much as you did her and she'll see you again someday on the other side. D.I.P. sweet baby Ellie. You'll be missed by not only your momma and brothers,.but strangers whose hearts you touched. My thoughts are with your wee boys and yourself to find closure and recover. I hope everyone learns from her abrupt departing to spare no expense to at least get your fuzzies heart checked thoroughly by your vet at least once a year or year and a half. I know I won't let Ellie's departing be a negative experience and will have my girl checked out. Hope you and your boys will be okay.. Eventually.
kpaz your story of Ellie made me cry. It is beautiful and sad at the same time. Ellie sounds like she had a wonderful and adventurous spirit. She also had lots of love to give to you and her boys. She's a beautiful girl all around and she had a great life. She was never left wanting in a loving home you provided her even after your first meeting with her. Not all ferrets can say that and she will remember it.
There aren't words to explain how I feel for you. It is hard to loss someone you love and to have that pain come along with no warning... Right now words won't help to easy the pain either but for what it is worth I am so sorry.
Remember that if you need to talk there is always someone here willing to listen.
She will stay in your heart as she makes her journey to the bridge and she will watch over you when she gets there.
Dear Ellie, DIP. You are a gem and will be loved always. May your wings carry you to the bridge where you will be happy and healthy forever.
I'm so sorry. She looked so much like my Carol, and your description sounds like her to. All I can say is that she was at home and happy when she went. I know you would have preferred to be with her, but having just got back from the vet to let Rocky go, I'd rather he had gone in his sleep. Dooks to you and yours.
