Fiona: Nov. 1, 1999 - June 26, 2007

Our older sister Fiona died Tuesday in Daddy's arms.
She was a daddy's girl. Here she is about an hour before she left us.

Our family doesn't have to worry anymore about her being taken from us by the very bad California Department of Fish and Game. She's free and no longer a secret! We are so proud of her and honored to have been her family. We love you and will miss you, Fiona.

We will soon scan and share with you older photos of her and our other big ferret sister, Peanut. Peanut died Sept. 1, 2003.

Here are more photos of Fiona from the past two years. She's so beautiful.

How sad, she seems like she was very special.

What's wrong with having ferrets? I think they're great animals to share your house with.

I am very sorry for the loss of Fiona. She looks like a very sweet and beautiful ferret. It is very good that she got to spend her last minutes curled up with her Daddy. My sincerest condolences to you.

huge hugs from all us here - i just lost my best ever and beloved dog oliver and he died in my arms as well - the best place to be - i'm sure fiona knew she was safe when she passed. i'm glad you were able to keep her too - being from arizona when my sister moved out here (to california) they confiscated her ferret at the border. she didn't know ferrets were illegal here and she was so torn up.
may you be comforted in your loss by all the wonderful memories - God gave us animals as such a blessing - and i'm sure you had many with fiona.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Fiona looks like such a sweetheart. Ferrets are so wonderful, they should be allowed in any home that will care for them.
I hope you are comforted by good memories of her. Hugs to daddy who she loved so much.

So sorry to hear about your loss. We never had a ferret but know people who do. We didn't know it's against the law to have them.

Karen Jo said...

I am so sorry about Fiona. I'm glad that she died in your Daddy's arms. He must have loved her very much. Give him some extra snuggles for me, please.

Basil and Paula said...

We are so sorry for your loss. She was so beautiful! What a sweet little face. When I (Basil) passed, mama was holding my hand. I can tell you honestly what a comfort it was and that it was wonderful of your Daddy to be with her like that when it was her time. Your family is in our thoughts and purr-prayers.

Ali & Fiona said...

We are very sorry about Fiona and it is sad you have to keep such a lovely creature secret in California.

Tara said...

I'm so sorry. Its sad to lose someone so special and loving! Purrs and thoughts with you. I'm not sure why its illegal to own ferrets in California. CDFG may be trying to protect native species should the ferrets get out wild.

They do sell ferrets at the PetCo near our Mountain house in Minden, Nevada. So it must be OK in Nevada.
